Happy As Larry Photo Shoot and a tale of my new rug….

Do you remember the Stormy collection range I shared with you here ?

Well Amy Eaton of Happy as Larry Designs contacted me a little while back to ask if she could photograph one of her new felt ball rugs with my linen.  Here are some of the pictures.

It gives you a great idea of how the linen could work in your nursery..very cool.  And those rugs are great aren’t they?  This colourway is so on trend for any room in the house really.

As you know I have this Stormy fabric in my Cams room and one of those rugs would look great..except right now I would be scared that Jasper (the pup) would sit there pulling off the little balls.  I learnt this the hard way when I put down a new rug I had wanted last week.

I was on my way home from Bondi and stopped in at the Tempe Ikea so Cam could watch the planes and I wanted to grab a few things.  I had no intention of getting the rug that day but as I headed to the checkout I glimpsed the much pinned black and white graphic pattern from across the room in the sale room.  I knew that’s what I wanted for the lounge room so I figured it was like meant to be.   I was so chuffed with myself for getting it on sale as ex display and it didn’t have a mark on it.

All good until it had been on the floor about 15 minutes and he had chewed along the edge..all while I stood about three metres away talking to my mum on the phone and trying to cook dinner….oh well I just turned it around ..what can you do?  See the rug and the culprit on my instagram.

Anyway back to Amy………I had been following Amy for a little while and have admired her fun range of products. The wool is imported from New Zealand and it is felted in workshops in Nepal where Amy regularly visits. They are all fair trade products. Amy is also involved in ensuring money from the workshops goes back into this poor community and also sells bracelets which the proceeds go towards the education of children.  You can find out more about this on her website.
