Thibauts newest line of fabrics and wallpapers are to die for.  I just put together a combination of fabrics for my soon to be re-done master bedroom.  Check out their new lines at http://www.thibautdesigns.com.  They are fresh, fun and colorful.

I just purchased the most fantastic faux glass table from CB2.  Its the Peekaboo Clear Coffee Table from CB2 http://www.cb2.com/family.aspx?c=114&f=699&fromLocation=search.  I put it in my family room and move the big wood coffee table we had in there to the living room.  Its fun, its modern, its clean and it offers us a clear view of our fireplace.  I’m so happy with it.

Fairmont Avenue Antiques in Fairmont, West Virginia.  I found the most amazing and unique antiques there every time I’ve gone.  Check out the wagon wheel which I am going to install on my dining room wall as an art piece and the old mold that I am either going to turn into a table or use as an art piece on the wall.

Antique wagon wheel for our wall.

Antique mold from the late 1800s. It will make a fantastic table top if I can find a great base to match.

The Perfect Area Rug… Anything from Dash and Albert.

In my kitchen I purchased the Plain Tin Grey/Blue Wool Micro Hooked rug as a runner (2.5′ x 8′) and I absolutely love it.

For right in front of my front door, for feet wiping and keeping the floors clean I got the Diamond Khaki/White Indoor/Outdoor in a 2′ x 3′.  http://www.dashandalbert.com/product/view/diamond-khaki-white-indoor-outdoor–RDB136

What I love about them:  Washable, easy to maintain, fantastic choices of color, pattern and texture, fantastic price-point.

My dining room table.  I just got it in last week and I love it.  Its from Bassett Furniture.  Check it out at http://www.bassettfurniture.com/Leaved-Round-Dining-Table-Round-Dining-Table-with-Leaf-and-6-Seating-DZ264.asp

Check out this lamp I found at Stuff, a local favorite consignment shop in Gainesville.  When I saw it had a terribly ugly traditional shade on it.  I’m pretty sure no one would have seen the potential in it with that ugly thing on.  So I had the lady at the store remove it and I fell in love.  It has such a contemporary style and I thought the orange color would contrast beautifully with my new blue walls.  I am ordering a new linen shade for it this week.

Isn't it pretty?

I love using outdoor fabrics indoors.  They are durable, stain resistant and can be found in so many cool patterns and colors.  Check out this fun find in time for spring, Malay Surfside by Sunbrella: http://www.sunbrella.com/fabric_details.php?fid=1070

Pair it with Benjamin Moore’s Lime Ricky for a fun and fresh spring/summer look year round.
