Rustic chic. You have heard the term a lot this year in the design world. The concept of mixing rustic looking pieces with modern edgy objects.
Above is a an image from one of my photo shoots with images of Ilse Jacobsen’s high-end rubber boots from my store Splendid Willow Avenue — here, where I plan to use a few rustic and modern elements. (The store is going through a much needed makeover — you will see more soon!)
Doesn’t this image from Elle Decor capture the theme beautifully? I love this room! This long table just invites long and fun dinner conversations. A rustic cabin with added modern accent pieces. A very lovely mix and atmosphere in my book. And the tall shelves are to die for.
My close blog friend Jill with Live Like You (who I have bragged about in the past ) recently launched her design business + store on-line. She keeps adding wonderful and smart design concepts to her store and her latest is called Earthy Modern. You will find lots of great inspiration and lovely objects for your home here. And Jill is definitely someone to team up with if you are looking for professional design help. Right now she is offering new customers all kinds of great discounts. Hop here to find out more! (And say hi from me if you team up with her!).
Another good friend/blogger/writer/artist, the wonderful Michele with Hello Lovely Inc. had a semi-soft launch of her new Etsy store. She has a great eye and I know that everything that comes from her is thoughtful, professional and filled with a lot of heart. Her things get snapped up pretty quickly (especially her art pieces which often don’t even make it to the store before they are sold!) — and more things will be added as she goes along. (She mixes her own art pieces with vintage jewelry). To celebrate her store she is offering a giveaway. And you can win as many as three (3) pieces from her store. All seen here.
Of course I am hoping that I will win (ha!) because I have my eyes on her quote board! Fits well into the rustic modern theme.
Go here to enter Michele’s giveaway. It ends on June 19th.
Hope everyone is having a splendid week!
