Stark's Versatile Antelope Ax

Amy Berry mentioned that Stark's Antelope Ax is one of the most versatile rugs you can use. Take a look below at all the other designers who seem to agree. Antelope Ax can be found in a variety of rooms, styles and yet it always looks great, from closets, nurseries, dens, sitting rooms, dining rooms.

Dallas Designer- Amy Berry

I was so excited to share some of my favorite photos from Dallas based interior designer, Amy Berry. I love Berry's use of great patterned wallpapers, encorporating blue and white ceramics, fun art, low key animal patterns and perfectly styled home bars. Berry lived and studied design in London and has brought back the classic European style mixed with her Southern roots.

Corpse Flower

I had the opportunity to view the Corpse Flower in bloom at the US Botanic Garden in DC. This was the first time this particular plant has bloomed and it took the plant six year to create this bloom. In two weeks the plant grew 54 inches. The name of the flower is derived from the putrid smell the bloom emits which is used to attract pollinators such as flies and beetles. The smell can be compared to rotting flesh or garbage sitting in the heat. We saw the bloom 10 hours after it initially opened and by that time the smell was faint due to the air circulation of visitors in the greenhouse. So much energy is used to grow and bloom that this magnificent bloom only lasts 24-48 hours.

The US Botanic Garden in DC is located near the Capitol building.
