ABC Carpet and Home

I would often have heart palpitations whenever I walked past or into ABC Carpet and Home. Everything in there is SO beautiful, not to mention waaay over any budget I could dream of. But still, looking was enough for me. There is a type of embroidered textile called Suzani that originated from Uzbekistan. The name comes from the Persian word for needle. Bokja Textile Design in Beirut has reworked these fabrics into furniture now being sold at ABC. They are all so beautiful. I'm hoping that while we are out here we'll find some amazing textiles and furniture.
We have decided to go for the little cottage. We have started the ball rolling with contracts and such. We are in this temp place until the middle of July and this cottage would be ours on the 1st; that would give me 2 weeks to clean, paint, and decorate for our move in. And this place will need that work. Here is a photo of the funny 1960s wooden wall divider.

I think it looks great. You should paint it all psychedelic colors...! Trippy.
