Rug Rules

Some people have a thing for sofas, paint colors, or art work. For me, it’s rugs. When I’m furnishing a room or changing up decor in my home, I’m the type of person who typically uses rugs as my starting point. When we moved into a house that required rugs in practically every room, I was in rug heaven.

Nursery Canvas from Nations Photo Lab

Ever have a specific vision for something and the results exceeded your expectations? That’s what happened with my experience with Nations Photo Lab.

Pink Kitchen Rug

Can we just take a moment to talk about my obsession with rugs? I absolutely love all the different styles, materials and rug patterns you can get. You can even make them yourself these days.

DIY: Arabic Welcome Sign

 I recently realized that I don’t have anything in my home that represents my culture or background. There are little things here and there around the house that I picked up during my visits overseas but nothing really that stands out. I love to download fonts for my blog from this website and was excited when I found an Arabic inspired font using English letters.

My Favorite Home Decorating Ideas

I’ve been so busy lately, if you threw a random date at me I can probably tell you which day of the week it falls on without looking at a calendar. That’s how much I’ve had to keep track of in my planner these days. The blogger solution for a busy life and no time for creativity? Why, share all of the google images I’ve saved in my bookmarks.
