The last online purchase I made for our home was this very reasonable striped runner from Crate and Barrel. It is so versatile! It’s lived in my bathroom, my twin girls’ room, and could just as easily be moved to the kitchen or hallway. A runner has the unique ability to visually lengthen a space, but with the horizontal stripes, this rug also visually widens — a win-win!

I recently purchased several yards of this Duralee Fabric – Loop de Loop/Smoke – from Fabric.com. When I found these two garage sale side tables for $5, I knew I wanted to transform them into beautiful bedroom stools for the end of my bed. After a little paint and creativity, I am so happy with the way they turned out! Online fabric sites are the best way to browse for fabric, with hundreds of brands and styles available at the click of a button.
A custom pillow in my favorite RicRac fabric from the lovely AriannaBelle. I had been talking with Arianna about making this for weeks and my sneaky husband busted into my Etsy account and bought it just in time for my birthday. Classic but fun, I think it is a great alternative to chevron.

I bought this octopus shower curtain from Cafe Press a few weeks ago for my kids’ small bathroom. I knew I wanted something bold and graphic, but curvy and organic to contrast the the smaller scale angular patterns of the basket weave tile on the floor and the subway tile in the shower. This octopus was perfect and it’s fun for the kids without being really themey.

God knows it’s the perfect month for me to participate in your “Send Us a Picture” series; I buy EVERYTHING online ;) The last thing I bought, that has actually arrived, is this gorgeous Moravian Star Pendant from Joss & Main. The entryway in my new home is a little understated to say the least. It needed something dramatic to make it stand out from the two rooms flanking it, the living room & dining room. This pendant definitely does the trick!

I love my Dorothy Thorpe lucite pretzel candleholder. I am obsessed with vintage accessories and find most of mine on Matters of Style Marketplace. After Sarah let me borrow her candleholder, I had to have one of my own, so I found this one on Etsy. Best of all, lucite isn’t easily broken, so even moms with young twins don’t need to worry!

The last thing I bought online for my home was this braided jute rug for our family room. My old cream colored shag rug was a little too small for the space and had started looking more beige than cream thanks to my two boys’ dirty little feet. :) This rug fills the space nicely which really pulls the room together- and it hides stains!
The last purchase I made online was my Summer area rug for my family room. I got a great deal through Wisteria. I still can’t believe the price. I got my 9X12 striped cotton dhurrie rug that retailed for $899–and I got a 70% discount because it was the end of the season—so I paid $269.70!! Best deal I think I have ever purchased, plus I love the fresh look it gives my family room for the Summer.

I recently added the navy & black tassel lamp from Shop Ten 25 (Does that count since I own the Shop? Ha! ) I am in the process of remodeling my design studio and recently installed these gorgeous lamps on the built-in desk!
(PS—The pink velvet beaded pillow can be found here!)

Hi Emily A Clark fans! Kate here from Centsational Girl, participating in Emily’s series! I’m always nervous about online furniture purchases but last year I took a leap of faith and purchased two club chairs from a Joss & Main sale. They are the Lenox Club Chairs and available at several online sites, including Wayfair. (Search “Lenox Club Chair” for other online sources). The chairs are smaller in size than the average club chair and the seat is more firm than I expected, but they’re the perfect pair for our living room and I’m delighted with the purchase. I cozy them up with pillows and a throw blanket each season!”
