Doesn’t every city have its must-see decor and furniture stores? (If you are into that sort of thing, that is!) The design pilgrimage stores. Like ABC Carpet & Home in New York. In Chicago, I’d put Jayson Home as one of those stores and can you believe I’ve lived here 11 years and have never stopped by. They are upscale, but they have their annual warehouse sale this weekend with deals. They also have occasional flea markets. I’d highly recommend you visit Chicago, but if you can’t, you can shop Jayson Home on their website.

I must really be in a beige mood today. They do have colorful stuff too! I just didn’t choose any of it. In fact looking over these, couldn’t they all be together in one pattern-full interesting room!
