fancy friday

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’ve had a good week. Mine has been spent celebrating wherever possible, and this weekend will be no different. I’m heading back to the country to share yet more bubbles with family and close friends, and just enjoy the ridiculously-happy-on-cloud-nine feeling that isn’t going anywhere fast. Am I nauseating? Ok, I’ll stop. Let’s talk interiors instead. A look that I am borderline obsessed with at the moment is Persian rugs. I’ve spent more time than is probably normal checking out some absolute beauties on eBay… even though I’m not actually in the market for an oriental rug at the moment, it can’t hurt to look, right? They look great anywhere (especially in the kitchen, gotta say). Even if a room has a stark, minimalist feel, add a Persian and it ups the cosy factor ten-fold. Another benefit of these rugs is that, as with Mulberry bags and George Clooney, they just get better with age. Are you a fan? Where do you think they look best in the home?

My look of the week goes to a Fancy Friday favourite, Camilla Belle. She is seriously flawless in this Ralph Lauren gown and fuchsia lips, and the detail on the train of the dress is exquisite. If I could look even one tenth as pulled together as this, I would be happy. As for my room of the week, well, of course it had to feature a Persian, but it also includes a sofa that may not be conducive to a TV dinner of beans on toast (especially with my tendency to spill), but sure as hell looks purdy:

I hope you have an amazing weekend whatever you’re doing and wherever you may be…

    I do love me a Persian rug and had myself all decided that I would buy a lovely old battered one for my dining room. My OH unfortunately pulled the veto card on it, however, when he told me it reminded him too much of the 70s. No matter how many gorgeous images I showed him, I couldn’t convince him otherwise. Sigh.

    So alas, I must admire from afar! They are gorgeous though!
