one room 2 looks (with Amber Interiors)

What would you do if I told you that I just decorated a space inspired by a purple unicorn pillow pet?? Would you zip on over here to check it out?

Did you go and check it out??? Are you sad that there were no actual pillow pets (i keep wanting to call them puff a lumps..do you remember those..probably not if you are under the age of 30). Well if you are truly sad then I would be more than happy to send you one of the three we were so kindly gifted last Christmas. 2 girls and 3 pillow pets equal an extra one to share.

Well to get down to the real business matters..I participated in one of the coolest blog series, one room 2 looks over on Amber's blog. Probably you have heard about her and her talents??? Amber's blog is a very entertaining read and she really does have many things to share. Personally I think she is very cool and very kind. There is a really great feature & more pictures of Amber's home over on So Haute if you would like to take looksy.

Shall we observe a few spaces from her home:

I like BOTH of the rooms not to mention the lavender paint! Where can I score some great rugs like those? Girl, you got it going ON!

I must know where you got that fabric! For the pillows on the sofa I mean! I am in love with it but have yet to be able to find a source. Pretty please??

OK, I LOVE that first picture of the bedroom from Amber's house. I could totally be happy in a bedroom like that. Makes me want to go paint mine gray, sigh. I think I overdid it with the green in there.

And I loved your rooms! My favorite was the first one, of course, because I am a girl. :) I thought the mirror and the lamp were very nice touches. And the rug! Of course!

Just found your blog and love the feature! Where did the awesome rug come from?! I'm in the market for a new rug and am trying to find something in just that color way, any suggestions?
Thanks (and just added you to my blog reader!)

Amazing! I don't know how you find the time for these projects.

I know you've probably said before- but what is the pillow fabric?- it plagues me. I may have to splurge.

Love the duo of pendants over the kitchen island with the exposed bulbs. So good!

I just found your blog through Ambers and I am OBSESSED with the pillows in your first look..the kind of chevrony (is that even a word?)ones. Is that fabric available and if so, will you share the info?
Great job!!

I am heading over IMMEDIATELY...those peaks alone have me lusting for more!!!

Hmmm, let's see...what's the word? Oh, yeah, SPECTACULAR. That's it. Fine job, Missy. I think this is a wonderful exercise just to get a person to rethink each room and it's function. Mix and match. Just like the combination dinners at the local Mexican restaurant...except yours is muy bien!

Also, I like the desk lacquered with the new pulls!

Debbie said...

wow....you've been busy!! Ahhhh, the life one gets when the trips go to preschool! :-)

Very nicely done my dear!!

joanna - the rug is currently offered by Anthropologie and the colors are so great. it actually comes in a different colorway as well.

Full House said...

debi - sadly that fabric has been discontinued. perhaps if you google jane churchill rossini then you may come up with something.

thanks for your comment and welcome.

good luck on your hunt.

xx - Christina
