As I always say when a client hesitates between one Moroccan rug or another, you don’t pick a Moroccan rug based on its size or its convenience. Buying a Moroccan rug is more like buying a piece of art. When your heart flips you know you’re making the right decision. It’s a statement piece you can keep all your life -Stephy
Our new Moroccan rug collection is finally here! Have you seen all the treasures I found during my last trip to Marrakech. Barely can’t sell them, guys, but how many rugs does a girl need? Plus, it makes me so happy to know they’ll be in awesome decors around the globe. I just love to see them in your homes. Please don’t stop sending me pictures of our Moroccan rugs in your own home decor. So much eye candy.
This time we thought it would be cool to show you how awesome they can look in a modern home decor and so we partnered with our friend, Vanessa Sicotte, the blogger, decor guru and owner of such a well decorated artful house here in Montreal. Our stylist Camille & I had a blast integrating the rugs into Vanessa‘s already stunning home decor. Plus, she has such a collection of well-picked vintage chairs and objects of all kinds, we were in styling heaven for our pictures.
First, we started in her bedroom where we went a little wild with rug layering.
Then we worked in her living room and decided this Moroccan rug found its spot! How cool does it look in her modern living room? There are so many cool details. Notice her gold mirror, bookshelf and light fixture? Aren’t the gold accents beautiful? Our Handira pillow looks pretty sharp on that vintage chair and how can’t you love these cute dogs waiting in front of the fireplace? The kind of quirky details we love.
Vanessa’s house is filled with unexpected little rooms. This small room has so many windows, it looks like a sunroom but it’s on the second floor of her home. This is where she decided to make her office. Such a great idea! So even if it’s -30 outside, the sun is pouring in! Camille and I just thought this small boucherouite rug that looks like a luscious garden deserved that spot. (That gold bag is such a cool addition to an office and Iris, we love you so much, we just had to frame you.)
Then we stepped into her girl’s room only to find this oh-so-cute tipi and gold horse head waiting for us. We thought our pink and cream Beni Ourain rug would be the perfect addition to a girl’s room. That wall paper designed by the talented Joy Cho is a definite staple. A vintage bubble gum dispenser? Girl, where did you find that? These accessories can be found in our shop: Pompom baskets, “la vie est belle” basket, pompom pillows and fiddle leaf illustration.
Last but not least, we sneaked into Vanessa’s boy room. We opted for a boucherouite rug that has stripes and argyles and colors that fit perfectly in the existing decor. Don’t you just love the vintage globes in there? Our tiger friend also made it on the wall.
Here’s the room from another angle. That red bookshelf is such a great find. And the wallpaper choice is just right on. By the way, that dino toy bin is a must. My sun adores his.
Well that’s it for now, but we’ll get back to her house because we’re not done with all the pretty corners. For now, go check our new Moroccan rug collection before they all fly away! –Stephanie
*A very special thanks to Vanessa who welcomed us into her home and let us play around with her decor. You’re the best.
Hey guys, we have such a beautiful and easy to make little decor idea for Valentines day we want to share! Camille and I came up with this DIY flower heart wreath project you can make yourself. No florist skills required!
You can make these heart shaped flower wreaths in about 30 minutes! They make such a cute gift or a fun decor addition for Valentine’s Day.
What you’ll need:
– Metallic wire (not too thin because you want it to keep its shape.)
– Flowers: We’ve used a bunch of eucalyptus, buttercups, wax flowers, hypericum and rosemary. But you could use whatever flowers you prefer.
– Thin green wire to attach the flowers (You could always use clear tape, we tried it and it worked well.)
Firstly, use your metallic wire to make your heart shape. Twist the wire at the lower end to close your heart. Next, dress up your metallic wire using the eucalyptus leaves. Tie the branches on the metallic wire with the help of your green florist wire or use clear tape to secure them.
Pick the flowers you want to use to decorate your heart and attach some here and there to make it look pretty. We kept it very simple but it would look super stunning with lots of flowers too.
Tadam! Pretty, right? Honestly we were very impressed by the results because it was so easy to put together.
It was fun to see how only changing the type of eucalyptus leaves really changed the look. I will definitely try this project with different fowers this summer. It would make a stunning wedding decor. Who’s got wedding plans?
It’s our favorite time of year again, the gift-giving season! And it has now become a tradition to offer you guys free holiday gift-wrapping downloads! Hope you’ll love this year’s collection designed by our talented friend & collaborator, Marie-France.
Hope you‘ll have fun with it! Wrapping gifts is the best, isn’t it? Show us the gifts you’ve wrapped up with our Baba papers, we’d love to see! Tag us via Instagram.
I think this one is my fave gift-wrapping from this year’s collection!
We went a little wild this year with our holiday décor, this tinsel mint tree reminds me of the 90’s! We thought it deserved some pompoms. Cute vibe right? Thanks to or collaborator Camille for this fun styling!
