Road Trip and a Rug for Sale

So Ann and I took a road trip to Raleigh to finish up two sweet little boys' rooms. We (um, I mean Ann) also needed to paint a killer wall in their playroom.  More on that later...
First things first. This four year old little boy had some cute bedding to start with so we added some red Ikat pillows...
 Some funky touches...
 With a western vibe...
 Of course, every western room needs a touch of hide...
 And a bullseye! Ann painted this bullseye on his wall as a fun focal point. Cute huh? 

Perfect for a four year old little cowboy...
Now onto his baby brother's new space. The mom wanted him to graduate to a big boy bed. Lucky for us, she had a family heirloom that was perfect for the space... The little antique bed made for an easy transition from the crib. Now, he just needed a more grown up room (he's 2). 
 Ann painted the walls with a horizontal stripe
 That we accented with custom drapes, a new custom slip cover and bedding and...
 A fun dhurrie rug from Shades of Light...
It adds a great pop of color to the floor. 
 We found this dresser and distressed mirror at Homegoods...
I love the top.
 And some cute accessories for a bookcase we moved out of the playroom. 
 Marimekko pillows pick up the green in the drapes...
This is the drapery Fabric and was the jumping off point for room...
What do you think? All in a days work!

And last, but not least, the playroom. We aren't finished quite yet, but I will give you some hints. 
It will be TDF (to die for) when this rug arrives. 
The room was a challenge because the client wanted to hide the clutter. Hellllooo!!! it's a playroom. Small dilemma. It's also right off of the main entry (as in the first thing you see when you walk in), so clutter just wasn't working for us. We found solutions (boy did we) and when the rug arrives, we'll show you the final product. In the meantime... here is a second hint. 
We wanted it to have more of the vibe of the living room and entry, so we decided to take out the oh so cute rug (see below) and post it on our blog FOR SALE. Lucky you! That's right, you could be the proud owner of the Rugby Stripe Rug. 100% wool, 8X10 rug from Pottery Barn. It's in great shape and would be the perfect addition to a kids room, playroom or kitchen at a FRACTION OF THE PRICE. Email us or comment if you are interested and we'll pass along the details.  
(view when you walk in the front door).


Thanks for coming along on our road trip. 
Bye bye birdie,

Yes yes, interested in that rug please. My son has a playroom and the previous rug was way past it's time. So yes, I would be interested in that rug if it's still available.
