I have been noticing director style chairs popping up everywhere.  I've even seen a couple from the 70s on my local Craigslist.  Everything in design seems to recycle.  As for the above rug, I am usually not a fan of cowhide patch rugs but I like the one shown in the top two photos.  I've noticed in our home that our cowhide rugs have proved to be kid friendly.  I've had a white one in our front room for 3 or 4 years and it has been so easy to keep clean and any stains come right up.

In the meantime I am liking some of the fun details from this house featured in Chicago Home & Garden Magazine this month.

I seem to be growing a collection of cowhides at an alarming rate. The patchwork ones are just divine.

PS- LOVED your two looks one room post. You are so talented!

It is true - it all comes full circle. Bri just bought a director's chair at the flea and fixed it up with a leather seat and back. Very cool!

Thank you for posting about cowhide rugs being kid friendly. I was considering one from IKEA (only $199) and its nice to know it could stand up to the demands of family life!

So beautiful. Are the walls black? Very masculine and yet feminine at the same time.

I adore those first two photos! It's so nice to see rich, colorful rooms done well. Sometimes I feel like the only person who is drawn to strong colors on the walls, and it's hard for me to find design inspiration that I can directly translate into my home.

(Gray! Always the light gray walls! Makes me feel like I *must* be doing it wrong. Those photos say I can be right, too. :))

Had to post the pictures you found from Chicago Home & Garden. Might have to even have a copy shipped to GA so I can delve more into the pictures. The outside and inside are equally as beautiful!

I love the director's chairs. They look so comfy!
As for the cowhide patchwork rug, I don't think I've seen one in our parts. It's beautiful!
