Inspiration


A lot of clients have pets or children - or both.  Sometimes testing out area rugs samples is needed. Sisal, seagrass and jute.  As you can see, Wallace is very helpful.

I love this antique inlaid Syrian piece with the mother of pearl detail.  It works perfectly in a client’s foyer.
We recently worked on a wonderful Victorian house with great detailing.  We darkened the floors and railing and added a natural fiber seagrass up the stairs.  The paint is Farrow & Ball Paint No.247 Terre D'Egypte - a deliciously warm red-brown terracotta.  

I have dear friends in New York that have had the Dansk Kobenstyle cookware in bright red.  I have always loved the design and am thrilled Dansk has re-issued it.  Now in white and black.  I couldn't decide on which color, so I ended up ordering white.  I love that the lid can be used as a trivet.

Have a great weekend!

I Love the Dansk Kobenstyle cookware from Crate&Barrel! I just picked up some pieces for a client's cottage. Great Design!

How does seagrass hold-up for the long haul? I worry it would only last a couple of years in a busy house.

I LOVE the mix of color in the victorian staircase! So welcoming!
About the seagrass, I also have dogs so I'm curious to know what rug sample did Wallace choose
:)

For the questions on natural fiber rugs. They hold up very well. I have them in my own apartment and they still look new. Vacuum weekly- etc.
I highly suggest them for any space!

Have a great weekend!
