Uttermost Rugs Grace the Floors of The Whistling Elk!

The Whistling Elk carries Uttermost carpets
Uttermost St. Petersburg Carpet
We are now carrying Uttermost rugs at The Whistling Elk. The one pictured above is called St. Petersburg and it is my personal favorite. It’s a pretty blue/gray with an swirled acanthus leaf pattern…very subtle and elegant. We are showing it here in the shop in the 5×8 size but it also comes in an 8×10 or 9×12.

Uttermost is only the latest addition to The Whistling Elk’s carpet offerings. For many years we have offered Nourison carpets – the one shown below is from the Heritage Hall Collection.

When i find a very special One-of-a-Kind carpet I like to bring it into the shop…like the 8×10 below from Capa Imports. The colors are very unusual and i love the pattern.

Little Paris Boudoir nearing completion!

the window treatments for the Paris Boudoir windows are almost complete…i have a few touches to add to the cornice boxes…but that is a surprise!

Last night I hung  readymade (!!) sheers which i trimmed with a 5″ bullion fringe and the drapes which are a beautiful striped silk  trimmed with a ball tassel beaded fringe…i must have fiddled with them for an hour  to get a look i liked…i got in these pretty little crown buckles and they look fabulous on the cord that i used to hold the drapes back…in the picture i have them scotch taped on (sorry bout that) – after i decided i liked it i attached them better!!!

My mom sewed all the pillow cases for the bedding…she does a beautiful job!  These are all Fabricut fabrics and the pillows are all filled with a 90/10 down fill – very nice and squishy! The beaded tassel fring is Robert Allen and the bullion fringe is from Brimar.  The little tassel at the top right corner is Trimland.

Under our beautiful casual swag (also made by my mom, Pat) I hung an shaped mirror that has a very vintage feeling.
