Hope you all had a flashy firework filled 4th of July. I have an unexpected few days off which is quite lovely. Today is going to be all hanging with Ponyboy, working on my blog and relaxing. I spent some of my time off cleaning and pushing furniture around. I am in desperate need of a new lamp for the living room. A swing arm would work nicely but I'm totally trapped between the traditional and the modern. Nothing's really catching my eye. I'd also like some fun throw pillows. I had to change out the rug because this little number is a d i s a s t e r lemmetellyou. Really pretty to look at but it is completely and utterly nonfunctional. It sheds all over, it is impossible to vacuum and it functions better as a blanket than a rug. I mean, rugs are to WALK ON right people? They have to be able to be cleaned! So I brought in the old grey Ikea which equals a lot of grey. Any suggestions for pillows? Something ethnic. (Although I'm almost 110% positive I am banned from bringing anymore ethnic textiles or paintings of old people we don't know into the house. This cohabiting thing has its downside too folks.) Ready set go. Pillows!
I asked for suggestions!
In the meantime...enjoy some of my favorite pulls from One Kings Lane this week.

All about the patina on this one. So perfect for an entry.
Whoa right? Totes picturing this with some sort of woven ultra natural fiber lampshade in a fun office.
Um. Duh. In a kitchen it would be amazing. And it's kind of a steal at $685.
yesyesyesyesyesyes. idoidoidoidoidoidoido. But with a different cushion please.
What a cute lil gift this would make.
I like this as art. Framed or not.
The scale of this is what I like. It's big. And it just sold. Boo.
I really don't know how many times I have to ask you guys for a vintage oushak, khotan or beni ourain. Let's look back to here, here, and here. I mean, seriously guys. I'm not kidding. Bday is riiighhgt around that corner. Make it happen.
I'm kinda shocked that I like this so much. Definitely not my usual style. But there is something almost magical about the colors. It looks very twinkling-lights-at-Christmastime.
(My roomie would most certainly break up with me if I brought this into our home.Without a doubt.)
Kids room or mans office. Nice lil decorative touch if you will.
Cute. On top of the refrigerator or on a shelf, mabes with some bread in it.
