Now that’s not a very chic blog post title for a design blog.
But honestly isn’t that pretty much the reality for today’s lifestyle? Whether we have kids, pets, guests or not, a designed space needs to withstand life. When I started out designing I used to be that horrible kind of designer who would put pale silk chairs that you really could not sit in, in the living room. Fast forward a few years and I’m WAY more sensible….(if any of my first clients read this I know you are laughing)
One of the reasons I wanted to design my own products was to create items that were chic and high on style, yet you can “get down and dirty with them” in lack of a more eloquent description.
The cotton rugs we make are reversible and completely easy to clean. And that’s a fact!!! This past Christmas I had put down our cream Monogram carpet in our TV room in Sweden. My mom had just served Glogg (hot red wine drink with sugar). Before I even take a sip from my filled cup, my nephew chases something and runs right in to me. The Glogg goes flying ALL OVER THE CREAM CARPET!!!
Everyone was horrified! But we simply did what the instructions say (minus the Woolite). We dabbed/rubbed it with some moist towels. And to my complete DELIGHT (and honestly surprise) not a single spot was left!! And it was red wine on a white carpet.
Mission accomplished. This is a carpet that works for the modern household!
Therefore I feel the need to share this. No more worrying about kids spilling or pets bringing in messes. And on top of it, you can REVERSE the carpet and use the other side. I really need to make some videos about this.
I use a ton of them for private design clients. Can’t wait to add more designs and colorways.
This Mark Road Trip ($ 525) design was the first one. The colorway above is called Road Trip because it resembles the colors on the road.
And who can resist a road trip?
Yellow lines on asphalt. And nothing can withstand more than that…
It’s a 100% cotton weave. It’s sturdy yet really soft so kids can comfortably play on the floor.
This colorway is a dark charcoal with a beautiful dark ocean aqua so we adequately named is Poseidon..
Like a dark beautiful ocean that conquers all. Yes… have to give everything fun names.
Stay tuned…in the next few weeks we are giving away a MARK carpet.
In the meantime don’t miss out on the www.houseofturquoise.com bedding giveaway going on until Friday.

I love seeing how people style their bedrooms. And I get an even bigger kick out of seeing how people style their bedrooms when it includes Jill Sorensen bedding.
I came upon a picture on Instagram a couple of weeks ago that totally made me smile.

Black key bedding styled with some tropical Homegoods pillows.
Doesn’t it look great?

Both ways look great.

How cute does this look?
Had to include a couple of more pics from her living room.
Reminds me what a great color combination green and black is. And graphics and florals will never go out of style.
Please send me your pictures if you have styled your bedroom with our bedding, I would love to share your style on the blog. And if you want to -follow along on INSTAGRAM@JILLSORENSEN.

I apologize for the silence, I had to stay off the blog to have it redesigned and moved over to new url. It was supposed to be a quick process, but everything seems to take a lot longer than you anticipate, particularly if it has anything to do with websites and programming!! Web addresses have moved and improvements are still being made so I hope all of you still get the posts. If you have any trouble, or do not receive my blog posts please e-mail me!
Anyway… I’m happy to finally introduce you to my new re-branded website(s). I heeded the advice of experts and decided to simplify my approach to my business. So now my design firm, label and site is called simply – JILL SORENSEN.(the portfolio site will go live later this week) I always used to wonder why people would lack imagination and use their own name…LOL…now I know why. The e-commerce site LiveLikeYou is now called Jill Sorensen Lifestyle and will include only my own designs.
I hope you enjoy it, sign up to the mailing list & share it with your friends!
I’ve added a new pillow collection done in 100% linen embroidered in all kinds of mixable colors.
A lot of the upcoming designs have been influenced by what’s around me these days…
Gorgeous Cali flowers.
Hopefully the blog will now function correctly and you will hear from me on a much more regular basis. Fingers crossed!
If you would like mix and match suggestions feel free to e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you are a designer and want to set up a trade account you can e-mail Mehreen at email@example.com
