Blue Crush: Why Blue Rugs Work...

Apr 22, 2014

If there’s one nitty-gritty task we love, it’s analyzing trends and fans’ reactions to new home decorating products. No matter the season, we’ve noticed one trend in area rugs: y’all adore blue. We do, too, so we decided to take a closer look at what makes blue rugs so perennially popular. According to Annie, “Blue is a unisex color that everyone can agree on! Navy blue works as a neutral, because it’s a primary. Paired with white, it’s a traditional combination, but still a...

One-Stop Mother’s Day Gift Sho...

Apr 21, 2014

Dear Mom, For all the years our younger selves subjected you to Mother’s Day gifts like $5 drugstore perfume, half-dead bouquets of flowers plucked from the neighbor’s garden, cups of lukewarm hot cocoa from a foil-lined envelope, and plates heaped high with pasty pancakes—all of which you somehow managed to greet with an enthusiastic smile (and, we hope, a hidden stash of Tums)—we say thanks bunches. Also: sorry. Our bad. Allow us to fix the error of our youthful ways by getting you...

Apr 17, 2014

There’s nothing that makes us happier faster than a bright burst of color, and when that comes courtesy of a sweet-and-sassy room design by some of our favorite bloggers, well, it’s like Christmas, our birthdays, and the first day of summer all rolled into one. So we were understandably giddy when we saw this light, effervescent show house designed by Sherry and John of Young House Love for the 2014 Richmond Homearama in Virginia. We’re especially smitten with the bedroom, which...

Spring Scarf Style

Apr 14, 2014

If there is one universal truth in fashion, it’s that you can never have enough scarves. Think about it: they’re provide that extra bit of warmth on a chilly day or when you want to go sleeveless, they make pretty much any outfit look like a million bucks, they’re a great addition of color or pattern to dresses and separates, and they’re an inexpensive way to make a longtime favorite outfit look completely transformed. We could go on and on, but suffice it to say that Annie’s Inkwell...

Apr 10, 2014

From time to time, we hear people say, “I love the idea of an indoor/outdoor rug, but I don’t really have an ‘outdoors.’ How am I supposed to clean the rug when it gets stained?” Well, hang on to your socks, stylephiles, because we’ve got some ped-blowing news: it’s actually super easy to clean an indoor/outdoor rug—even a big boy, like our Samode Denim, shown here—inside your shower or tub.

Apr 8, 2014

We always look forward to this time of year—it’s all about “in with the new,” and that includes switching out our fall and winter area rugs for their lighter weight, more colorful cousins. Whether you lean toward paler neutrals, blues, greens, or pinks and corals, Annie has introduced dozens of new cotton woven rugs, indoor/outdoor rugs, and even an innovative paper-and-cotton Japanese-style rug to the Dash & Albert line. Now the only problem is narrowing down our choices. . ....
