i love to sleep!

Like I mentioned in the previous post I am now a Design Consultant with Furnitureland South. We carry hundreds of manufactures and many different styles of furniture. While walking around in the 1.3 million square feet of showroom space on a daily basis I daydream about new elements to add to my home...or pieces I could switch out (aka upgrade!). I think one of the first things I want to "add" is a new bedroom set!  
I love these beds...They all have classic elements paired with modern lines. 

I love the headboard on this one! Not only the graphic pattern in the wood work...but the way the sides come out perpendicular to the headboard panel.

I love the simplicity of this bed by Bolier...but the lines and height add drama to the piece.

The graphic elements of the headboard are straight and almost understated, while the curve that is introduced in the headboard adds an unexpected twist!

Here's to sleeping in a good looking bed!

My floor needs a makeover....

...And while I would love nothing more than to rip up every piece of carpet in my house ( we could recycle it of course ) that is just not practical right now. So plan B...cover it up with gorgeous rugs.
I have always loved rugs and the texture, color, and completeness they bring to a space. Feel like your room is missing something? Does it have a beautiful rug that compliments the main components of the area and creates a space within the overall space? Well I know they are missing in some of my rooms. And Im dreaming of the day when i find the perfect ones for each room of my home ( and my pocket book...ouch). But until then I'll be thankful for what I have and anticipate my never-ending, always evolving, sometimes o.c.d.  project 818 the wilson home. ( oh and drool over these oh so cute rugs).

Gotta love the shag.

I love me some graphics in bold colors!

But I also adore crisp, clean, organic shapes and lines.

I like the asymmetrical qualities of this piece, both in the weight of the bubbles, the color, and the negative space. Very nice!
