living artfully

i drooled all over the rug company book when it was brought into our office a few weeks ago. the rugs are amazingly gorgeous but, what caught my eye most was the roomsets.....oooooolala is the only word to describe these photos below. i fell in love with this quote from the book...

"living artfully might require taking the time to buy things with soul for the home. good linens, a special rug, or a simple teapot can be a source of enrichment not only in our life but also in the lives of our children and grandchildren. the soul basks in the extended sense of time. but we can't discover the soul in a thing without first taking time to observe it and be with it for a while."
- thomas moore, care of the soul

picture on the left (rug designed by: marni) - i see myself living here! this bright airy space has a touch of modern and a twist of fun flirty colorful accents. the artwork above the sofa, the chandelier, the painted white wood floors and oh yes of course that rug brings the entire room together.

picture on the right (rug & pillow designed by: vivienne westwood) - um um umm...i love the artwork, how creative. the artwork was most definitely created with soul. the entire roomset is just perfect.

picture on the left (rug designed by: vivienne westwood) - it oozes with romance. i love the corky heart rug mixed with the old world setting. and yes that single pendant flower print shade is just magical.

picture on the right (rug designed by: paul smith) - my favorite part of this roomset is the one oddly placed piece of artwork....ahhh, perfect. i also love the mix of the classic damask wallcovering, chair rail, large wood base boards and beautiful sofa with the modern rug.

i would love to have a job where i could design roomsets like this....oh, how nice it is to dream ;).
