I am moving!

Yup I'm moving... but not into a new home. Did I get you?

I will be trying to move my blog to Wordpress and my own domain at www.cuckoo4design.com and the site will be down for 4 hours at some point today. So bare with me my friends.

I need your help though too and that is to make sure you don't lose me. Especially if you are following me through Google Friend Connect (GFC) because I will lose you for sure unless you bookmark or add me somewhere else.

There will be another pet post next Friday, hopefully ;)

And I'm sorry for the short notice. I just found out last night that today is the day! Keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm not going to lie, I'm scared and wandering into new territory.

See you on the other side hopefully. And make sure that all your links and subscriptions to my site work. That's what scares me the most because I don't want to lose any of you.

Have a great weekend and wish me luck.

My new limited edition print

I have a new art print from Minted to share with you that I'm super excited about!

When I was contacted by Minted, I couldn't jump on the chance to pick something fast enough. Their art marketplace selection is awesome and so is the rest of their items.

(Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post but I was provided with the print. All opinions are 100% my own. I only share things with you that I truly love)

Although I had many favorites and it took me a really long time to pick, I ended up picking "Linea" limited edition print by Kelly Ventura (click HERE). The print satisfies my craving for black and white and all the other colors incorporated go perfectly with our home.



You might be sick of seeing more photos of my living room already but here it is in our living room:


For these shots I changed the pillows from emerald to turquoise. 





I can't make up my mind though because it looks great in our powder room as well.  I didn't want to hang it yet. I had nails in the living room already and didn't need to damage the wall.




And for a third choice, it looks really good next to our mint mirror in the dining room. There is a white wall next to it. I leaned it on the buffet to show you:


See how well the colors all go together?

What would you do? 
  1. living room
  2. powder room
  3. dining room


Let me here your thoughts? It really does look great with all three doesn't it?



But I also want to show you a few of my other favorites:












And there are many more!

So what do you think? Where should I hang my new limited edition print?

A new gorgeous rug for our living room!

Yes, you read right, a new rug! I know I've had some huge fans of our old rug but the pattern has been bugging me for a while now. The pattern had become too much for me which became clear in my fall post. It was restricting me too much in being able to choose patterned pillows and other decor items. (click HERE to see it and yes the rest of the decor is all the same but it's a completely different look)

RugsUSA was so kind to provide me with a new 8''x10' rug (it's not a sponsored post, all opinions are 100% my own which shows in all the photos). I chose the "Rugs USA Sierra Paddle Rug" in ivory (click HERE).

And I've just fallen in love with our living room allover again. It is the prefect subtle change. The look is entirely different and I have endless possibilities to change out other things now.



Doesn't the rug look perfect with our sofa?

I originally wanted this Marrakesh Shag rug but I have one already in our bedroom and it just doesn't mix all that great with a high traffic area and possible pet vomit. Sorry if you are grossed out now but I love our cats and my home design works around them. It's the truth and accidents happen.

This rug is the perfect solution for us and I don't even think about the shag anymore. I'm in love. 

The rug pattern is something I used to doodle in high school all the time when I was bored, so it's just meant to be. Match made in heaven!




And I found this beautiful tray at Ikea in their new Christmas section. May I say it's perfect?!?
















The rug is pretty awesome, am I right?
