Style Story - Rustic desks

Forget sleek, modern, power desks - take a cue from a simpler time when wood and metal ruled. Rustic and industrial desks are an easy way to warm up a home office and keep you home as cozy and classic as years gone by. Certain designs will never go out of style!

Love it! - Chainlink mirror

I love nothing more than a chain link pattern so when I saw this mirror with an actual chain link border I had to blog! Rustic yet chic, this mirror can look great in a traditional space or incredibly cool in a modern space due to its bold, industrial form.

Love it! - Mint julep cup

Love a classic mint julep cup. I have them all around my home serving different purposes. On my desk as a pen cup, in my bathroom on a tank tray with dried yellow roses and on my coffee table with live flowers. A versatile vessel that is a must have in all sizes!

Love it! - Zebra bath rug

In my bathroom, I use the standard hotel-style white bath rug, so when I saw this zebra inspired bath rug, a first for me, I had to blog - have you ever seen?! But at $330 each (and that's the sale price) what secret powers beyond "style" does it behold???!!

Love it! - Outdoor/Indoor rugs

So I was searching for an outdoor area rug for my patio and I just stumbled across these amazing polypropylene options from Williams-Sonoma Home, I'm still jumping in my seat! Water, mold, and weather resistant, the bold graphic patterns make a stylish statement indoors or out. People are sometimes afraid to use a "plastic" rug indoors but they actually work great in an office because a chair with casters roll easily atop or work fantastically under a dining table making spills and crumbs an easy clean up!
