I can’t think of a better way to instantly change a room’s look for little effort than adding or updating the area rug. Whether it’s bold colors and graphical prints, or subtle tones and a traditional pattern, an area rug can anchor your conversation area, provide zip to a neutral room, or be the one change that you can make until a full room makeover is in your budget.
Here are a few of my favorite new releases for 2013!
All of the above rugs are available through Gina McMurtrey Interiors.

It’s been an incredible year! I am so very thankful for the wonderful opportunities I’ve had to work with some great clients and on fun projects. Designing award-winning rooms is only as good as those who implement the plan, and I am so thankful for a reliable team of contractors and subcontractors in whom both I and the client can communicate well with and feel confident in their skill.

It’s that time of year again–BACK TO SCHOOL! Did you move a student in to a college dorm or apartment over the weekend? It’s been a while, but not long enough for me to forget how boring and bland resident life rooms can be. Granted, the availability of cute, fun, bright dorm gear is much better than it was (ahem!) 20+ years ago, but still, there are rules about painting, hanging art and even window treatments that limits the decòr to the lower half of the room.
I ran across this awesome product a month or two ago and wish so much to have had it back in my day. Wall Pops® are removable wall decals with a lot of personality. Think contact paper meets super fun giant stickers meets erasable marker when it’s all done. Literally hundreds of designs can be used for many different rooms and looks. There are even dry-erase board Wall Pops® to help your student keep track of their very demanding schedule, designer Wall Pops® by Jonathan Adler with trendy designs and colors for the style-conscious, and my favorite, the giant wall clock applications. How fun is this headphone wall clock?
When you’re done for the semester or year, and want to upgrade your digs, simple remove the Wall Pops® without damaging the walls and take them with you.
College life is fun and exciting and your room should be too! These products are available at www.wallpops.com, in limited designs at Target, other online merchants.
