I love, love the piece of abstract art in the Room of the Week. Besides just being beautiful, it ties the color palette together and helps bridge the rustic and refined details in the room.

The Southwestern-patterned rug in the Room of the Week really sets the tone for the style of the room. and its muted color palette keeps it from taking over. For the last decade Moroccan, Turkish, and Indian patterns have been trending, but lately I’ve noticed a lot of Aztec and Navajo patterns popping up. And, if those earthly southwestern colors aren’t your thing, there are options in every color imaginable. Here are 15 of my favorite finds…including budget options from Ikea ( #7 & #8) and Target (#11), and even indoor/outdoor options (#13).

I’ve been thinking about the entry way to my house…the approaching winter, with its crazy predictions of heavy snowfall, has me looking for ways to make my entryway a more inviting and functional space in my home. Last year I spent lots of time fighting the snow and mud my kids kept tracking in and I’m hoping to make some changes this year so it works better for my family, and looks better too!
Entryways are hardworking rooms and are your home’s first impression…that’s a big job! I’ve partnered with Dutchcrafters to show you how to put together a beautiful entryway whatever the size or style of your home. Dutchcrafters specializes in Amish-made furniture that is not only hardworking and functional, but beautifully designed to work with a variety of design styles.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces styled together with other fun finds from Target, World Market and Birch Lane.
