Favorite Finds: Mansour Modern Rugs

The right rug can make any room! I had the opportunity to see first hand the line of rugs that I have been ogling over for months – Mansour Modern. Pick up any shelter mag and you are likely to spy one of these great additions to any room.

I loved this French blue,  driftwood gray and cream circles! Could be the  perfect touch of mod to a traditional bedroom. Dallas interior designers David Cadwallader, Kathy Adcock- Smith and Kay Troutt brought this fabulous line of rugs to town for a two-day trunk show last week.

Dallas Market Review: Sea of Blues

Sky Blue Lacquer Chest

Dallas Market this week was full of all shades of blues from icy robin’s egg to the brightest turquoise. Robin + I noticed the color theme all around the market in all aspects from gifts to furniture to fabrics. Not surprisingly, we spied an article in a furniture trade magazine  + our thoughts were confirmed. Pantone announced the Color of the Year:2010 was Turquoise. “Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing,” quotes the press release.

Fox + Riddle Seaglass Mosaic Rug

Amazing variegated wool rug is in beach glass hues of sea blue, palm green mixed with sand. We loved the modern take on a shaker pieced rug. This unique style would update the most traditional of interiors or add just the right amount of color to a neutral toned room. One of our favorites!
