    I realize most of you are starting to sense a crisp fall breeze in the air, but here in LA we’re experiencing the biggest heat weave perhaps on record. (Oh how I miss fall!)

    So the thoughts of that cozy fall sweater and fireplace has been swapped out to thoughts on of swimming pools.  I’ve bid on a house, but no news yet. However…that doesn’t stop me from playing around with ideas for improving that retro pool area the house has.

    There is not better place to draw pool inspiration perhaps than a Slim Aaron picture?

    Roof top pool anyone?

    I wanted to create some happiness underfoot.  A carpet in pretty colors that would cheer up a room.

    Our cotton carpets are now available in a few new fun retro colorways.

    All of them (almost) are named after things we love.

    I’ve been working really hard to expand my carpet collection and this is just the beginning of what’s coming! We are preparing for our first “design” show and pop up shop! Details and dates to come later, but it will kick off in Los Angeles in early fall. I hope you will come visit!

    I’m pretty obsessed with these cotton carpets, super durable,soft,  chic, easy to wash and easy to carry around.

    (Who doesn’t love to redecorate in a whim? I do!)

    We are testing a bunch of new colorways and samples in the bungalow, and of course as soon as they go on the floor my tiny rescue Chihuahua/Jack Russel mix BUBBA ROCKET (he’s wickedly fast)  can’t resist the urge to sit on them..

    …and not move.

    Not sure why dogs always do this. Do you?

    And forget it if a camera lens comes out, he LOVES to pose!

    That’s how he ended up on the cover of the my online store.  How can you resist him?

    After all he is a suitable model. I have these carpets in my bungalow which is always crowded with people, pets, kids, and they handle it perfectly!

    I hope you had a great Memorial Weekend!

    I’ve been working on some new happy designs and want to share the latest duvet and sham design with you.  It is (of course) my favorite LOL. I call it the DECO Bedding, because it’s inspired by the Art Deco era and has some Eastern influence which are design styles that I love.

    I have selected four of my favorite colors to make it it PURPLE RAIN, SUNSHINE, POWDER PINK and KELLY GREEN. Only Purple is live on the site, but the others are coming any day now.

    Mehreen my fantastic assistant who is also a photographer (among many talents) shot it with the MONOGRAM PILLOW-PAPAYA and my orange Pagoda headboard, and we were thrilled how it turned out.

    This design works really well in modern and classic interiors. I really would love to see it with a Chinoserie or fun wild floral wallpaper.

    We always get a lot of questions what the tone of the colors are. So here are the Benjamin Moore colors they are very similar too.

    I have a line of sheets coming out in a tropical leaf design, so for fun we had it made in to wallpaper that we used for the shoot.
