You'll have to excuse me for posting about FLOR's Shiny Happy Stripe again (remember those dazzling gold images?), but it seems I'm not the only one feeling inspired by these striped carpet tiles!
My friend Rebecca of loving. living. small. recently moved into a new (and, yes, small) apartment and has turned her bedroom into a really lovely, sophisticated space that's feminine but not girly. The silver striped tiles she placed on the floor have a slight menswear quality, which is a nice counterpoint to the vintage fashion prints she found at a flea market. As for the headboard, can you believe she built it herself?! Color me impressed.
