If you have been following my blog for a while now, you know we are big fans of Annie Selke around here!! I have been lucky enough to work with Annie over the past few years across my different apartments so I am VERY excited to announce that I’m participating in the first ever Annie Selke and Apartment Therapy Rug Design Challenge!!!!! AND I need your help.
Here are the details.
Over 15 AMAZING and talented design bloggers will create their dream rug with the chance to have them produced by Annie Selke’s internationally-recognized rug company, Dash & Albert. I am so very honored that I get to participate in this challenge with some designers and bloggers I admire!! I’ve included links below to everyone who is participating in the challenge.
Here’s where I need your help.
Fans can follow the process and vote on their favorite designs on Annie Selke’s Instagram. I will be submitting my rug designs by next Friday, June 30th. VOTING BEGINS JULY 6th!!! I’ll be sure to remind you guys but I would so appreciate your vote!! What a dream to be able to have this opportunity to create and produce my own rug.
Anywho that’s it for now. Apartment Therapy will also be documenting the whole process up to when the winning rugs are presented at the April 2018 High Point Market.
I recently came across Brooklyn based design firm Chango & Co. Are you familiar with their work? You can follow them here! After discovering them on Instagram, I decided to take a peek at their portfolio when coming back from the Hampton’s yesterday. One of my girlfriends and her husband who we were with this past weekend hired them to design their Tribecca apartment. I seriously cannot wait to see the end result! Anywho, after getting lost for what seemed like forever browsing their website and Instagram I had to share this Westchester Family Abode.
What I love most about discovering new design firms is pulling inspiration that you can totally recreate in your own home. I’ve seen this Serena and Lily blue and white rug used in multiple living rooms, dinning rooms and bedrooms! You also can totally mimic the dinning chairs in this home with Serena and Lily’s striped bistro chairs or the pendants utilizing these Santa Barbara Pendants. So cute, am I right?! And can we please talk about the Feather Wallpaper? A classic wallpaper staple in beach homes on the East Coast.
There’s nothing better than finding interiors that are similar to your aesthetic and recreating the look. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite products below to help you achieve this Westchester’s family home below.
Happy Monday, ladies and gents! In case you missed it or you’re just tuning in, I shared my bedroom reveal last week. I LOVED reading everyone’s comments so keep em’ coming! Gray Malin also featured my bedroom last week which is always fun as I’m such a big fan of his work.
As I mentioned in my 5 tips post, I ended up going with Horchow for my couch because they exactly had what I was looking for when it came to my sofa. I wanted a white, slip covered linen sofa that was 40″ deep. After much research, Horchow ended up having the perfect sofa for me and I have been obsessed with it ever since it was delivered to my apartment back in December!
It’s taken me much longer than anticipated to finish my living room because I’m still waiting on my Wisteria coffee table. Similar to my couch, I did a ton of research when it came to finding the perfect coffee table so I decided to stick it out and wait until it was back in stock vs. picking something out that I don’t absolutely love. I’m pretty much using this rule of thumb when it comes to all of my furniture. Next up are my end tables. There aren’t many end tables I love at first glance. However, Horchow has several that have caught my eye. Insert this Louie Round table and this gold end table. I’m a huge proponent of mixing the styles of end tables as well as the material. The Louie Round Table has that Hampton’s beach vibe that you guys know I love while the gold end table provides a polished finish.
Keep reading for my entire round up of end tables from Horchow! Where are your end tables from? Xo. Lauren
