It’s about time for another round of Making it Yours (MiY), don’t you think? MiY explores ways to use stylish investment pieces for the home while keeping up with changing lives and changing tastes. In this third edition, I’ll be focusing on the ever popular Madeline Weinrib Zig Zag Rug. It will start out in the home of a young woman who has just splurged on the rug (it’s the most expensive thing in her apartment!), then make its way with her through several changes of residence.
Nothing here is extraordinarily expensive, but our young apartment-dweller is starting to gather some nice things for her living/dining space. IKEA’s Karlstad with a green slipcover is a great sofa for only $499, and the hot pink chair is a fun addition to the room. Wicker chairs keep things light and airy, and the tee pee dining table is a piece that will be loved for many years to come. The pink lamp is a steal at just $49 (on sale), and it would look great on a substantial white blocky table. White wall flowers and a pink print dress the walls, and a cute pillow sits on the sofa.
Next up, we’ll see the rug move into the bedroom.
