Styling the Living Room

How do we feel about sheepskin over a side chair? I was inspired by the picture below from Style Within Reach and tried out my own version using an Ikea sheepskin rug and my ghost chair.

I also took the liberty of adding a little vignette to the top of my side table with a few books (Kate Spade's Style and By Invitation Only by the founders of Gilt Groupe) and this amazing elephant teapot. I think it turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. Also, take note of the magazines on the shelf below - they're old issues of Domino and Southern Accents, my two favorite, now defunct decorating magazines. Thankfully, Domino is back this month! Rumor is it hit newstands this week and I definitely need to pick it up this weekend.
