Mixing It Up!

In both interiors and fashion, sometimes it’s fun to break out of the norm and mix things up a bit, be it color or pattern or any mix of eclectic styles. These rooms evoke a balanced harmony despite a mix of colors and pattern – try mixing it up!

For the longest time I have been wanting to share the amazing rug designs from Shivhon Rugs, and the motivation to do so has finally come – especially now that Shirley (the proprietor / designer behind Shivhon Rugs) and I have become good friends! I’ve always been a fan of her colorful, graphic rugs. Most recently, Shirley has shared some of her inspiration and direction for her forthcoming Fall collection and I look forward to seeing those come to fruition! In the interim, check out some graphic faves I’ve pulled from her site along with some she sent me.

Pearl-2

The “pearl” is so cute, would be great for a children’s room or playroom.

holly-3

Graphically sophisticated, I quite like the “holly” area rug.

A custom rug in the making, this is the Bella Rug.

An image of the finished product, the Bella Rug.

SHIFT-7X106-45

Like an abstract canvas, love the colors of the “shift” rug.

vroom

A rug goes that goes “vroom” – I bet my nephew would love this one!

flutter

Beautiful butterflies – “flutter” is earthy and organic.

salem-small

“Salem” is so artistic, love the movement.

Aqua

New for Spring, the “aqua” rug will take you right through summer!

For more info, visit Shivhon or contact Shirley directly, right here.

Thought I would share some finds from a recent concept board I put together for an entry + living room in a California coastal home. Light furniture, warm woods, a play on patterns…perfect for a small sitting room.

High Point Market – that is!

JillSeidner1

This past Spring market, the Material Girls (along with other fab bloggers!) were invited to participate in “Suite Spot Tours” at the International Market Centers in High Point, NC. As part of the tour, we were each allowed to select vendors through-out the market suites to feature as part of our intimate guided tour:

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 6.37.01 PM

To highlight a few of the vendors I included on my tour (& some of my favorite finds!) – here’s a re-cap:

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 6.44.02 PM

Marc Phillips Rugs – always love their collection of area rugs, and especially the new unique artist designed rugs that I also featured here. One in particlaur was on display at High Point Market, the Obey Giant designed piece.

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 6.50.01 PM

Another collection I enjoy, is the graphic pillows from V Pillows & Rugs, a company based out of Miami, FL.

Screen Shot 2013-05-07 at 6.44.43 PM

Los Angeles based designer Kim Salmela is a new favorite – loving, loving, loving everything coming out of her product line – which you can view here. Kim was nice enough to share with our group her background and design collections for Spring!

JillSeidner3

…and when I wasn’t busy with my own tour, I went on over to another High Point building fave: 220 Elm to tour W. Schillig with my bestie: Maison21 (& shout out to him for a big help on my tour…let’s just say he helped “keep the pace.”) BUT here’s the thing: he gets to his tour, finds this super comfy leather sectional sofa to recline back on and tells me, “Now you go take the rest of my tour, I am staying put right here!” See how that works! (If you don’t believe me – well, the picture above tells exactly the story!)

JillSeidner

Another showroom at 220 Elm I had the opportunity to visit (thanks to a friend of mine who was helping out there!) was Mat Orange. They have a range of rug collections (many graphic, and colorful) – one of which I absolutely love – pictured above.

JillSeidner6

In addition to showroom tours, I had the opportunity to attend a press tour for the Traditional Home Showhouse located in Greensboro, NC. The Adamsleigh Estate is a magnificent 15,000 square foot mansion that boasts 33 rooms and covers 13.5 acres which includes a lake, tennis courts, pools, gazebo, & five car garage. A handful of amazing designers transformed the home into one amazing room after another. Above is the powder room. For more info on the home and designers included, click here.

Next came the parties. Lots of them! One of the most anticipated was the unveiling of the new Stanley Furniture showroom. The entire two story space is stunning. The most exciting was seeing the work of our friends, Los Angeles based design duo Ron Woodson & Jaime Rummerfield of Woodson & Rummerfield’s House of Design and their showroom gallery space for Stanley Furniture. Above is Maison21 and I photographing the gallery wall of mirrors which we loved!

While at the Stanley Furniture party, Christian of Maison 21 took a little time out to be interviewed by Shane Inman.

Next came the Halo party – always a packed house!

379816_10151628122168478_148725369_n

Between design events & parties, we stopped to take a few pics – or, in other words – wherever we saw mirrors! Like here in the courtyard at the Baker Furniture Showroom (with Ashlina of The Decorista and Edyta of Edyta & Co Interior Design).

JillSeidner2

And more mirrors! (Edyta, me, Ashlina)

We had a fun afternoon hanging out at the Younger Furniture showroom (located at 220 Elm) for the launch of designer Traci Zeller’s new textile line. Pictured above is Traci with Ashlina.

310885_10151629630993478_289829611_n

Last but not least, came the grand finale of High Point parties: the always fun Four Hands party. I had a great time hanging out with my “twin” & Blog Tour London buddy: Raina of A Stylist’s Life.

Many thanks to High Point Market Authority for organizing yet another succesful market!

Thank you to IMC (International Market Centers) for inviting the Material Girls to High Point for a great opportunity!

220 Elm & Heinz – thank you for hosting us all for an amazing lunch!

If you haven’t yet been to High Point Market – it is defintely worth a trip! For details and planning for Fall Market, visit the website here.
