project diaries: get the look from molly sims’ home featured in lonny

in this installment of the project diaries, we take a look back at molly sims‘ home which made the march cover of lonny! such a fun project for the kpi team to work on! if you haven’t viewed the story online, be sure to visit the magazine’s website for many exclusive pics here to get a complete view of what kishani designed for molly and her growing family. if you loved the feature, guess what? you can actually buy many of the exact or similar pieces from rummage directly! some require a bit of lead time, so always consult with our shop directly to get exact information for the item that you are choosing! hope you enjoy these pieces as much as we love them having them in our inventory!

molly sims and kishani perera via kishani perea blog

molly and kishani have worked together on several homes, but this one was particularly special because it is the home that molly is raising her family.

blue and green drip glaze lamp via kishani perera inc.

saturated colors from the accessories, lighting and wall art make the living room really pop against the neutrals! this mid-century blue and green drip glaze lamp is very similar in shape to the one in the living room. if you love the style, you have to view our wonderful inventory of additional drip glaze items here!

 bristol side table via kishani perera inc.

isn’t this a beauty? we love the bristol side table designed by kishani for molly’s living room! it is made of wood with an antiqued mirror top. the great thing about this piece is that we can make it custom in size and with different finishes if you have a specific design need!

mud-cloth textiles via kishani perera inc.

tie dyed textiles are so popular right now! we love the options kishani used throughout molly’s home, but these mud-cloth textiles in yellow, orange, green and purple are equally perfect for injecting your home with color this spring! if these textiles speak to your design sensibilities, we can create custom pillows using one or more of these options!

cadogan coffee table via via kishani perera inc.

if you did a double take when you saw the cadogan coffee table in molly’s living room, we don’t blame you! another of our favorite pieces designed by kishani herself! we particularly love the bulb turned legs! such a handsome piece for any home!

derby poufs by kishani perera inc.

two items not shown in the living room photos of molly’s home, but we would be remiss not to mention are these gorgeous derby poufs! the nailhead trim details that kishani added to the overall design are so striking! we can easily custom design these in other sizes and fabrics too!

albin mobile in earth tones via kishani perera inc.

every baby needs a mobile over their bed! the handpainted neon one in little brooks’ room was so unique and artistic that kishani made sure to design another with earth tones. and yup, you guessed it…custom orders are available in either color wave through our shop!

thanks for reading our “get the look” feature into molly sims’ home! what’s your favorite piece designed by kishani? let us know in the comments!

our week

this week was a calm one to end the month! we were all grateful to catch our breath and start working on some new projects. we also got to spend some time gearing up for valentine’s day and we have two lover’s day gift guides coming your way next week! with love in the air, the pressure was on the last solo lady in the office to look into tinder. she said ‘look into’ so no commitments yet! kp continues to unpack in her new home as the rest of the staff gets a first hand understanding of the collecting (hoarding) tendencies of a true vintage lover. she is buried in boxes to say the least! unfortunately, our pug pups got a little too rough with their usual wrestling and birdie punctured our little gus man’s eyeball! all is well, but it was quite the scare. with a calmer week and being on the hunt for the best gifts for your lovers, we came across some great finds to share with you this week! as always, be sure to follow us on facebook and twitter to keep up with us all week!

enjoy your weekend – dh

it doesn’t matter how long your day is, to come home to this washes it all away!

vintage rugs are generally a little awkwardly sized, so layering them is not only pretty, but often necessary! see a great example here

you still have time to snag this week’s flash sale at rummage! be sure to follow rummage on twitter and facebook for weekly flash sales you cannot miss!

these works of art are incredibly unique and jaw-dropping gorgeous. any one of them would serve as a serious source of color inspiration for a room.

we love this round up of vintage inspired bar carts with sizes and styles for almost any home! have you added a bar cart to your home decor?

this tumblr may be the most beautifully curated collection we have come across yet. such a wonderful place to pull inspiration.

there was something about these playful planters that caught our eye. we imagine someone out there needs this for valentine’s day!

this is pretty much the dream life for many of us! we love this gypsy tarot wagon and need to make a visit!

we still love this adorable balloon night light and the whimsical addition it would be in a child’s room

someone has to have this spoon for their father for valentine’s day! she swears he is grumpy until he eats his morning cereal!

we love this list of random act of kindness, especially as a little (belated) holiday gift to a stranger

chocolate tubes of syrup ‘oil paints’ would be a fun, and potentially messy, activity for all ages. we’re thinking wine and chocolate on a new level.

we agree, we’d like to open this book and watch the reaction of strangers on an elevator, or a child at bedtime

intricately cut newspaper pages transform into lace-like art with the combination of an xacto blade and serious patience!
