Our Top 10 Favorite Rugs

Nothing can tie a room together quite like the perfect rug. Here at Chrysalis, we’ve been carrying Dash & Albert rugs (among several others) for years! We thought it’d be fun to kick off the weekend with our top 10 favorites available to order from our store right now!

#10. The Aster Sage Wool Micro Hooked Rug – bright and cheery but content enough to blend in, it’s soft vaguely floral geometric pattern could mix well with a variety of decor styles.

#9. Sahara Hand Knotted Jute Rug – a nod to the exotic, but in classic blue and off-white, plus it feels so good underfoot!

#8. Hot House Winter Wool Micro Hooked Rug – what a riot of fun color! This rug offers a touch of whimsy to any room.

Unknown

#7. Star Came & Ivory Indoor/Outdoor rug – I LOVE these stars! What a fun way to add some sparkle (sorry- I had to!) or Colonial-inspired flare to your room. This pattern is available in several colors too including classic red, blue and even pale pink! What a sweet addition to a nursery that would make, eh?

#6. Dry Brush Blue rug – The more abstract pattern in this rug is a refreshing take on that blue and white we love so much.  It would be enough to kick things up a notch in a traditional room.

Unknown

#5. Taza Hand Knotted Jute rug – With a nod to Northern Morocco, this neutral patterned rug is luxe, beautiful and a conversation piece. I see it in a cozy bedroom filled with cream-colored linens and deep blue accents. Yes please!

Unknown

#4. Gypsy Stripe Woven Cotton rug – fun colors, classic stripes! Simple and lovely!

Unknown

#3. Falls Village Stripe Indoor/Outdoor rug – I personally have had several indoor/outdoor rugs by Dash & Albert and they are workhorses!  Easy to care for and clean, which is one of the only ways I could have a rug with so much white in it (house full of boys, what can I say?). This rug comes in a variety of colors too (the ochre is particularly pretty!), but this light blue just screams summer and the beach!

#2. Thyme Ticking Cotton rug – as the herb it is named after, this delightful green rug is bright, fresh and adds that little something extra!

Unknown

#1. Cat’s Paw! This perennial favorite and it’s many color options can tie in a room of almost any decor style. I personally have the green, but the grey is stunning too! There are  four colors to choose from and all of them are gorgeous!

Mixing fun patterns with classics is a staple of Kate’s style. I think that fun tropical print looks so cute with a polka dot detail!

Wouldn’t that palette make a sweet nursery or some sassy accent pillows?

Creative Patriotic Touches

Love this patriotic porch from Saavy Southern Style!

With this being an election year, Memorial Day this weekend and Independence Day just a month away, we are feeling the inspired and thought it’d be fun to share some cute ideas to bring some patriotic touches to your home!

Pillow inspirations from The Inspired Room. 

Personally, changing pillows is the easiest and economical way to tie in new colors, patterns or themes. To add a patriotic touch, think ticking, thick stripes, classic stars (shapes or patterned), even polka dots to give the eye the overall feeling of a recreated flag. Here you can see some of our red, whites and blues at the shop.

A mix of patterns in red, white and blue give a less-literal take on the patriotic look while still looking stylish and contemporary!

And don’t forget to add buttons for a nice detail too!

Great button detail from The Cottage at the Crossroads.

And hey! Why not frame Old Glory? The beautiful thing about our grand ole high-flying flag is not only the stirring and passionate hard-fought beliefs it represents, but it’s beautiful too!

Gorgeous framed flag inspiration from Life as a Thrifter.

Summertime Inspiration

dbad3e6a-4180-4084-af8e-362adbeff4f3
Summer fun is around the corner and Thibaut’s Goa fabric in Pink is inspiring visions of the beach and gently swishing palm fronds in our minds. Jumping fish and shady palm trees decked out in bright, uplifting hues are the perfect choice for bringing some tropical sunshine to your home (or home away from home)!
Add it as a subtle pop of color as an accent cushion for example or…go big! A shower curtain in the guest bath, cushions for your porch swing, or a table cloth for your backyard cookouts!
Come by Chrysalis today to see this gorgeous fabric in person and let us help you realize your design inspirations for summertime!

Butterflies on the brain!

Hello friends! We certainly had a busy weekend with our big Passport to the Pavilions! Music, food and so many wonderful customers! Since we have five days left of our Butterfly Days promotion it would be an understatement to say we have butterflies on the brain! So for fun, we put together a color profile from one of our favorite butterfly prints in the shop right now, Avalonia Graphite by Braemore!

We broke down the colors in the fabric and corresponded it to Benjamin Moore paint colors straight from the paint fan! It is such a fun way to plan a room when you have it all laid out in little tiles for you, right? It makes it easier to piece create a scheme too, if you wanted to base a room on a certain fabric.

Well, we hope you enjoy the lovely fabric and colors and come in to see this fabric (it’s even prettier in person) and hundreds more!

There are five days left to get 20% off all in-stock purchases and an extra 20% off all clearance merchandise too! Spend $50 and you get the chance to draw a “fortune cookie” worth even more savings on future purchases!!

 

Feeling the Blues in the best way!

There is something about Springtime that makes you crave clean, fresh and bright. Lately we’ve been seeing gorgeous versions of classic blue and white and it has us all so inspired. We even have an entire corner of the shop dedicated to it! So, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites in the shop and thrown in a few fun ways to use it around the house too! We hope you enjoy!

Mixing patterns and textures can be an easy way to update a piece seasonally. Here, mattress ticking is paired with a snuggly chenille throw and two contrasting pillows. If you notice, one pillow hearkens to the pattern and color of the chair, while the other gives a nod to the darker navy blue accents in the room. The trellis patterned rug gives the eye a nice spot to rest.

Our display currently at the shop magnifies that principle. The cobalt chinoiserie chair compliments the abstract cobalt rug mixing traditional and modern quite nicely. The textured fabric of the chair on the right is extended throughout the look thanks to the nubby blue throw tossed on the chair to its left.

To top it off, the lamp brings the look back full-circle to the chinoiserie slip-covered chair giving the scheme a cohesive flow. Add a little striped ottoman and you have a modern classic look that is cool and fresh for Spring and Summer!

Try living in a world without pillows. Sounds horrible, right? Comfort aside, adding decorative pillows can create huge impact without breaking the bank and you can change them so easily, as your mood and the seasons dictate!

Here, shape, texture, color and scale are used to demonstrate how all fifteen (15!) patterns could be mixed and matched together  in various groupings and still create a scheme that looks intentional and stylish, whatever the theme.
