i love fall colors, with all the warmth and coziness they offer. i don’t celebrate halloween but seeing all these warm spicy colors around how can one not get inspired?
interiors designed in warm fall shades are always inviting no matter the time of year, and are especially soothing in winter months. a room painted hot red sounds intimidating to most people but let your inspiration “travel”…you will find yourself bursting with craving for color change in your own home…or maybe even your hair (not orange ladies)…or paint something…or zap something you already own, in a hot accent hue.
i love pumpkins. roasted that is. better yet – after roasting it the warm colors are intensified let alone the flavor.
so here’s a pumpkin, not roasted, painted…in warm watercolor hues. by me.
i find inspiration in my kitchen – love hot spicy flavors and colors. makes home decor so much easier…
because these shades of beauty surround us all the time.
the rug below, for example, was inspired by the beautiful shape and shade of the star anis spice, only magnified. imagine this warm rug in your own room.
when i lived in nyc i walked through the park daily. i would pick dried leafs to paint, especially in the fall…when you get the most out of their color and texture…which inspired me to design leafdrop rug below.
moroccan interiors are known in their exuberance display of warm shades like it’s nobody’s business.
so get inspired.
what’s your fall favorite?

i love posting about this particular custom rug design “whip” whenever i have a chance like here and here and here, because it reminds me those moments when i visited the american museum of natural history in nyc with my daughters, who were so overwhelmed by the sheer size of the dinosaur skeleton on display, that they simply stood there, jaws dropped and stared at that thing it for at least a full hour.
being a patient mommy…ahem…gave me enough time to imagine…
a custom fossil inspired design.
and this month’s issue Interior Design magazine featured my “whip” rug. well thank you.
fun to have it your way – any color and size your’e imagination desires, right here.

who said you can’t hang hand-knotted rug on the wall? and who said it had to be small only because it’s a rug?
it’s a heavy duty piece of art and it should be treated equally as you’d treat a cherished painting, be it on the floor or hanging on the wall.
now here is something new: looking at LUX interior and design magazine volume 9, shows me the editor’s perspective on my rug design kama. i can’t say i’m not flattered. thank you.
it does look like a museum piece (of rug) hanging above a beautiful modern table, don’t you think? i’m not being biased.
adapting this idea in my big empty high ceiling nobody-sits-in-living room — genius.
…and in no time…i have a feeling…my family will start occupying this space.
love the bright images and the high-end interior projects featured here. check it out.
