    Simply Rosy

    I’m really digging this overdyed kilim rug in bright rose from Urban Outfitters. The price is right, too – $49 for a 2″x3″ and $129 for a 3″x5.” Also available in sky blue.

    Seen in the Ikea 2016 Catalog

    I just had a chance to click through Ikea’s 2016 catalog and was so impressed. Appropriately titled “It’s the Little Things that Matter,” it’s full of fantastic new decorative items with tons of style.

    In addition to new items, the catalog is a great source of decorating inspiration.

    A Little Monday Marbling

    Did you know you could use spray paint to marble hard surfaces? Me either. Luckily, Vintage Revivals has a great tutorial for upping the cool factor on your plain white vases right here. Now I’m wondering if this would work on Ikea furniture.

    Paint Me a Picture Curtains

    I’ve always been a fan of busy curtains. Probably because my parents had (actually, still have) these amazingly rich, jewel-tone bird and floral print curtains upstairs that I always loved. Every few years I try to talk my mom into giving them to me, but she won’t budge. The good news is these Frida Kahlo curtains from ModCloth would make an excellent stand-in. $35 per pair.

    Cheap Ways to Make Stuff Look Expensive

    Buzzfeed has compiled a great list of Ikea hacks that make inexpensive pieces look like they cost a pretty penny. Above, an Ikea kitchen cabinet laid on its side and topped with wood from trendsender.

    A simple paint update for an inexpensive Ikea step stool from Bloglovin.

    My personal favorite is this jute cord update for the Foto pendent from design sponge. There are over 30 ideas on Buzzfeed’s list – many for pieces you may already have at home.

    Steal of the Week: Oblique Candle Holder

    A modern take on the traditional candelabra in iron with metallic brass finish. Marked down from $118 to $60 at Anthropologie. Now excuse me while I hum “Be Our Guest” for the rest of the day because I’m that suggestible.
