Urban Lovin’

While shopping for a client this weekend, I found some pretty great stuff at Urban Outfitters.  I thought I would share.

this reminds me of....

...of this wallpaper from Schumacher.

A birdcage shower curtain

I have read that these rust if used in the bathroom. I would love to find a spot in my kitchen for a set of 3.

I love the pattern and the contrast welt on this chair.

So Adler inspired. Doesn't work in my house or for the project I am working on, but I want someone to have this fun little guy.

Yummy rug, I would love it in a larger size if you are listening Urban Outfitters.

Finally, a couple random, non-decorating items that I like and want.

I am not much of a photographer (as illustrated by my mostly iphone photos used on this blog), but I am pretty sure this cutie would make me better, or at least look cooler while I am taking a close up photo of my finger.

These are measuring cups - so fun, must buy these!

Hope you all had a lovely 4th of July weekend.  Mine was awesome, filled with liquor, laugher and things that go *BOOM*, pretty much perfect!


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    Now if they would just make more rugs in 5×7 and 8X10…
