TELL ME

Sam from the wonderful blog, day•dream, has been kind enough to nominate me for the Tell Me About Yourself Award. I was unable to find the original source of this award online (hence my lack of a link), so I’m going to bend the rules a little bit to turn revealing “seven things about myself” into “seven pictures that reveal something about me.” Here goes:

LDS

I recently read several articles discussing the prevalence of Mormon women in the lifestyle blogosphere. While I know very little about the LDS Church, and find generalizations to be pretty much useless in any context, I have definitely noted how many of the lifestyle blogs I love are written by Mormons – and, additionally, that my growing familiarity with these individuals through their writing, art, and photo curation has dismantled many of my ignorant assumptions about their religion.

RUG

Since starting this blog a few months ago, I have been so lucky to have a bevy of very talented interior designers and design experts among my followers: Natalie, Patricia, and fara beth, you know who you are! And now that it looks like we’re moving into a new place next month, I’m probably going to be posting way more on interior design than anything else as I try to create a new home.

Though the place we’re looking to rent is lovely, it has beige carpet in both bedrooms (one will be an office). I’ve already started thinking of ways we might liven it up, and one method I discovered in my online searching was the use of area rugs over carpet. Though I’ve found a blog post here and there on the subject, I have only found a handful of photos that really inspire me. So, talented interior designer friends, what do you think about putting rugs over carpet? Any thoughts or tips?
