Room with a View

So Zulily (affiliate link) sent out an email asking you to design a dream room including a Loloi Rug (affiliate link) in honor of Loloi rugs being featured this week.  Of course I couldn't resist playing interior designer.  My dream home would have hardwood floors with big gorgeous rugs throughout, but for now I'm a linoleum and carpeting kind of girl.  But it was fun to dream.

Here's what I came up with:

I pictured redoing my office and I chose the Rust Harper Wool rug which comes in a variety of sizes.  There's all different patterns and designs to choose from, but I really liked the more subdued ones.  I also like these grey ruffle curtain panels that Zulily has for $34.99 right now.  This birch tree picture is just kind of magical.  It's canvas, 16" x 20" and only $32.99.  (It would look awesome in my hallway too.)  And finally, I always need music.  I had a record player for a while when I was in high school and I'd listen to my mom's old Seal and Croft vinyl (as well as a few other albums), but every time you touched the needle you'd get a little shock.  This is much more portable and I could buy Bon Iver and The Decemberists on vinyl now.  Back when I was in high school, I think records were pretty much dead.  There's just something nostalgic about vinyl records.  I grew up with cassettes so I don't really know what it is, except maybe it makes playing music more of a ceremony instead of  just skipping through on Pandora or our MP3 players until we find a song we like.  I'm not sure.  This player is from Crosby and comes in a variety of colors for $124.99.

So there you have it.  I guess I'm favoring greys and oranges right now.  Maybe it's that autumn is coming.  What room would you love to redo in your home and what would your color pallet be?
