So..this feels a little lame, but I have to mention Anthropologie again. With print mixing and matching sweeping the nation, Anthropologie came out with this really cute way of showing consumers how they to can create their “own dream team of unique sheets and lavish toppers.” If you need a break from your work day, play around with it and just see what cool combos you can come up with…

I love everything about this rug from Anthropologie. The design is loose, but sophisticated, and the colors are fun and upbeat, without being obnoxious. This color palette(navy could be used instead of black) seems perfect for the home or children’s marketplaces…

Everywhere you turn you are bound to see an animal skin print..the trend has inundated every market possible, from apparel to interiors. But time after time Roberto Cavalli does animal prints in a way that has never been done. In his Spring collection he showed classic snake and croc skins executed in wonderfully soft and feminine muted tones…and amazing skin prints that combined ideas..feathers alongside snakeskin. These prints are amazing and gave the collection a dreamlike quality…an uber feminine, kick-ass rockstar dream..
