It has been a long while since I did anything new and interesting around the house–chalk it up to being busy with work and worrying myself silly over what other peoples' homes look like. So when Lemlem reached out to us Rue editors to let us know that they have expanded from clothing into decor, and they invited us to style the pieces our own indvidual ways, I was so excited to flex my interiors muscles!
Lemlem was founded by Ethiopian model Liya Kebede as a way to support women and children in her native country. All the products are handmade from cotton in Ethiopia–the colors are so punchy, the material is unbelieveably soft, and I love knowing that the proceeds from these products are supporting independent artisans. I had such fun refreshing my bed with these bright striped pillows!
Of course I couldn't just plop new pillows in without swapping out the artwork on the walls and the bedside accessories too (in case you hadn't noticed I'm a bit of an all-or-nothing kind of girl). I'm a big proponent of 'use what you have' decorating so I grabbed a lamp from another room, tore some pages from a book, and voila! Ready for summer! Tell me: Have you switched it up lately?
