Absolutely Loving: Alice Temperley for The Rug Company

Binder1_Page_091.jpg

I was beyond thrilled to learn that London darling Alice Temperley is the latest fashion designer to produce a collection with The Rug Company. New York Magazine describes Temperley’s runway pieces as ‘bedazzled party dresses for the fearless London “It” girl’, and the textiles she has designed are no less lust-worthy. The look is worldly boho glam—and I couldn’t resist a little shopping trip inspired by Temperley’s gorgeous creations!

A traditional chesterfield and a teapot in deepest cobalt honor Temperley’s English heritage, while a woven tapestry blanket and cloissone bowls look smuggled from the sultan’s palace. A handwoven iron coffee table complements the global feel of the Temperley rug, and to keep things from getting too serious, an oversized lamp strikes a whimsical note.

I secretly wish I had a long lost great-aunt living in Boca Raton, her house filled with kitschy pieces like this peach velvet settee–it’s such a swinging spot to toss Temperley’s stunning pillows! Add some polish with a mirrored side table, and heed the call of the wild with a zebra mirror and a peacock lamp. In the words of that other celebrated Londoner Austin Powers, ‘Very grrr, baby!’

    I first fell in love with Alice’s style when I saw a feature on her loft (check it out here: http://belljarsf.blogspot.com/2008/12/inside-alice-temperleys-notting-ill.html ). Just look at that vanity draped with jewelry … and that gorgeous bathtub right smack dab in the middle of her closet! Thanks for sharing Alice’s collaboration with The Rub Company. I desperately need a new rug for my living room. 🙂
