Haven't you always pulled out the ad for her rugs and pillows in magazines and thought to yourself, hmmm, that would look fabulous in my house- where in the world can I  buy her products?

Well, you are in luck- she has recently opened a showroom to the public near Union Square in NYC!  The salon type atelier is filled with her pillows, rugs, and furniture!
Grab this months Elle Decor to read all about her new flagship showroom.

If you do not know about this amazing designer here is a bit of info about her!  Enjoy!

"Painter and designer Madeline Weinrib lives and works in New York City. The granddaughter of ABC Carpet & Home founder Max Weinrib, she carries on the family tradition with her innovative collection of artisanally-crafted carpets and textiles. Translating her painterly sensibilities into woven form, Weinrib launched her first carpet collection in 1998, responding to what she sensed was a gap in the marketplace. Known for their lush color and opulent pattern, her designs draw on a wealth of sources gleaned from her travels and reflect her interest in reinterpreting and reframing traditional forms. Her signature collection of carpets and textiles are housed at the chicly-appointed Madeline Weinrib Atelier on the 6th floor of ABC Carpet & Home. The artist’s recent projects include a bespoke flooring installation for the Brooklyn Academy of Music and a signature carpet designed for the Neue Galerie." her own showroom as well!

As you can see she is very talented!  Her rugs make such a stunning statement.  Pair elegant, simplistic furnishings with one of her rugs and your space will be a show stopper!

Which one do you want???

Design on TV: Downton Abbey

Happy New Year and
 Happy 1 year Blog Anniversary to us!!!! 
We have really enjoyed sharing our design aesthetic, opinions, and ideas with all of our readers. As we continue to share with you what inspires us, we hope that you may continue to find inspiration... 

Speaking of...We are so excited for the upcoming 2nd season of PBS hit show Downton Abbey, filmed at Highclere Castle, UK premiering January 8th! 

It has a wonderfully suspenseful and dramatic plot about a "prestigious" English family and their countryside estate set in the early 1900s. And is full of eye candy- gorgeous costumes, a beautiful castle, and delightfully elegant interiors...






Be sure to read the recent Downton Abbey article from Vanity Fair here .

Here is  to a healthy and blessed 2012! We look forward to what this year has in store!
