Anyone who knows me....knows I'm certainly NOT a minimalist....with color or with my home.  I have been looking for a rug to incorporate into my living room...it seems like FOREVER.  Anyway....finally found one I adore!!!

Ordered this Persian  on-line from One King's Lane....rugs can be tricky...and ordering them over the internet can really turn out to be a nightmare...but as I said....I could not be happier. Love the color, love the design and it is just enough color in the middle of my room. A large coffee table normally goes on top of it....but I wanted to show you the design of the rug clearly, so took these shots without the table in place. Oh and the best part is the rug was marked down half-price.

Needed a pop of color on that traditional rug of ours and this one fits the bill.
BTW......here is a shot of my studio.....where I can be creative from time to time...when I'm not messing with dogs....teehee.

You can see how that rug I just purchased would fit right in with my funky/eclectic decor.

Let's all go have a colorful weekend.

Smiles from me to you.



  1. i enjoyed the pictures of your home. the colors in the rug are perfect.
    you have a great weekend, too.

  2. Love the rug, and the pattern is unique sort of southwest, sort of art deco, sort of Parisian. Good job! When are you heading north?

  3. Gosh, you have such a beautiful home. That rug is lovely. We just bought an area rug for our living room same color scheme, but immediately Miss Minga went and started clawing it, so it has been removed to the bedroom where she is, for some reason, fearful to enter. Have a great weekend.

  4. You have a really great funky lounge, i love your decor I like things different .. Its decorated so well , your personal touch shows. Its very inviting and cosy.
    I love your persian rug.. it adds colour .. lucky to get it half price.

    thank you, for sharing.

    we were in Marksville, Lousiana, at the Paragon Casino RV Resort, owned by the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe. All of this is on their reservation. We do not gamble, we rather like a sure thing. We are now just north of Natchitoches, La. Leaving for Texrcana Thursday.

    hope you are well and happy. kisses and hugs to the new fur baby.

  18. Dear Jo, Love the eclectic style! I am a huge fan of funky, spirited colorful oddities..no matchy matchy stuff for me..although many can make it work well..I have tried that, and find it boring. Now your lovely home...oh it's so inviting, always something new to catch your eye, a subtle twinkle here and there, a pop of color next to a rustic piece.. a Persian rug..paired next to a sofa filled with colorful throws, and pillows..beautiful!! What enormous style you have! Love it! You are a woman of many talents, writing, photography, gardening, thrift store treasure finding, decorator, artist, hostess..you can do it all, you probably even sing and dance! (smiles)xoxo Christel

  19. oh my gosh how beautiful your home is and I love love love your style, I could just live in that studio, come to think of it , our apartment might just fit right in there!!
    I did have my blog deleted, not by me though, I started a new one and have been trying so hard to find my friends, its been a process, I'm so glad you found me! I have rejoined your followers because i lost all my lists, everything , poof, was gone!
