I’m flying to High Point Market bright and early in the morning, so today I’m working around the clock to make sure all my work is done and everything is packed and ready before my 7am flight. These days it feels like all I do is work like a mad person, pack, travel, unpack, rinse, repeat. I’m certainly not complaining—there’s nothing I love more than visiting new places, meeting new people and trying new things, but this. girl. is. tired. I’m hoping to catch a break in November to get back on top of things. In the meantime, I’m really excited to see thousands of new home products over the weekend, so follow along on Instagram for all the scoops!

Chairish challenged me to create a room styleboard around a Madeline Weinrib vintage rug. Here’s what I came up with.
Ever since I stayed at the Ludlow Hotel I’ve been dreaming up a bedroom decor that embodies a similar boho-chic vibe (or as hotelier Sean MacPherson calls it: Trustafarian meets Miss Havisham—look it up). So when Chairish hit me up with a challenge to create a room decor around one of their vintage rugs, it was the perfect opportunity to experiment. I knew exactly what I wanted in the room: a four-poster spindle bed, crisp hotel bedding and a mix of exotic textures and textiles—dhurries, mod cloth, suzanis and lamb skin. This Madeline Weinrib hand-loomed rug was perfect to finish off the look. With a few modern elements and a black, blue and white palette, I brought to life my vision of a streamlined Ludlow-by-the-sea bedroom.
Here’s a few tips to consider when decorating around a vintage rug: pick out one to two tones from the rug, in this case the dark caviar color and creamy white, and repeat around the room in curtains, pillows and accents. You can also repeat patterns—for example the cross is also present on the dhurrie ottoman and the mod cloth pillow. More importantly, if your beloved vintage rug doesn’t come in the right size, fix the issue by layering an inexpensive natural rug underneath.

“I wanted it to feel like a lake house, with lots of blue and white and comfortable sofas. It’s OK if you come in with sandy feet.”
Two sisters found out that their childhood lake house was on the market, purchased it together and turned it into an easy-living, picture perfect haven for the next generation. Those sisters are Saree and Jenni Kayne—and the Lake Tahoe house is now also home to Jenni’s husband Richard and their children Tanner and Ripley.
The Cape Cod style house has a distinct East Coast appeal despite being located on the West Coast, and a beach house feel despite being situated on a lake. Everything about the house feels approachable and casual—from the fouta towels hung at the door to the belgian linen pillows scattered throughout. The house feels as though it was built for kicking back and relaxing. The secret? Lots of linen, all white roman shades, natural materials, swedish antiques mixed with comfortable sofas, Swans Island blankets and a meaningful art collection curated by friends and family.
