Behold. Colour. Made by the Berber people of Morocco from scraps of old clothes.

I recently came across a UK company called Plantation Rug Company who make some really lovely, affordable rugs. Most range from £150-£250 depending on the size. Others run from £300 and up. Here are a few of my favourites…

Reworking a tired, old rug into a black and white striped rug. I’ll post the “after” picture once the rest of my fabric paint arrives. That is all you need by the way – a rug upon which to paint and some fabric paint of your choice.
Anthropologie in the UK is exploding with amazing things at the moment. I’m not sure if all of these items are available through Anthropologie in the US. If not, I’m sorry, because this shiz is bananas.

How very chinoiserie/antler/animal-chic. Here’s how you can get the look!
Step 1: cover your walls in blue damask wallpaper, like this:
Step 2: chairs. Source a pair of vintage tub chairs and have them re-upholstered in Designer’s Guild Varese velvet “Smoke”. These are a good shape:

Juju Hats. Alas. It took me hours upon hours of googling to find what these feather pom-pom wallhanging pouffe things are actually called! Turns out, they are tribal head-dressings from Cameroon. Behold.
I love the blue and the Moroccan wedding blanket. Gorgggggggge.
Juju and Antlers! What a combo!
Some sexy vintage, coral and Juju! What dreams are made of!
Now, there is a benefit to reading this blog (well, several, but a benefit to this post in particular). I’m going to tell you several places where you will find your own Juju hat!
2. Make your own!
And if you want to know how they were intended to be worn, this is the closest I could find to a human donning a Juju.

Soho House, so what?
Jess and I pity the fool who agrees to go on a city break with us because we spend at least 99% of our time looking at and touching beautiful things. As you can see, we recently visited Berlin and stayed in Soho House. Designed by Susie Atkinson, the modernist yet plush scheme is a triumph of contrasts. There is a gorgeous sea green and red-mauve colour sceme pervading throughout. A mixture of velvets, hardwood, glossy tiles and sparkling chandeliers as well as the minimalist, polished-concrete reception room (complete with a Damien Hirst graffiti shark) had our eyes and hands bouncing and caressing.
A bit like Hotel California, anyone can check-in (not just members), but you will struggle to leave.
…I had Jay Z’s “Girls, Girls, Girls” in my head as I was writing this. Don’t ask.
Here are some rugs from Anthro that tickled me:
