Marian is a pastor’s wife, mother of two little boys, paint &; textile enthusiast, and lover of all things home. She started her businesstoddler pillow cases, Mustard Seed Interiors in 2008, as a way to earn extra money for groceries. What started as a local decorative painting and mural business has grown into a blog, Miss Mustard Seed, an antiques and home décor business, and a paint line that is sold worldwide, Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. Marian’s work has been featured in Country Living, Flea Market Style, Women’s Day, Better Homes &; Gardens, Fresh Style, Make It Over, Romantic Homes, Romantic Country, Farmhouse Style, Cottages &; Bungalows, Fox News, NBC, CBS and on the Nate Berkus Show.

We reached out to Marian with a few questions about her rug designs:


Both of these designs are recreations of beautiful antique coverlet I found at an antique mall a couple of years ago.? Sadly, it had some pretty substantial holes and wear, so I loved the idea of giving this pattern a new lease on life.? ??Both rug designs are variations on the same coverlet.

How do you see your rugs being used? In what sort of spaces?

I don’t think there is a room where these rugs wouldn’t work!? Obviously, they would be right at home with antiques, but I think it would provide interesting juxtaposition in a more modern space.? In my home, I think I would put it in my office or our family room.


Blue and white has been my favorite color palette for decades, so that was a no-brainer for me.? It’s also classic and has universal appeal.


My favorite Annie Selke’s designs are the ones that are influenced by antique textiles, so I felt like that direction would be a good fit.? She also features lots of blue and white rugs!


I think it’s amazing that Annie Selke offered this challenge, not only to outside designers, but to the general public to vote for their favorites.? It was fun to see all of the designs that were submitted and watch as Instagram followers picked the ones they liked the best.? It will be exciting to see how they all turned out and how they sell in the retail marketplace!

In case you missed them, here are Marian’;s winning designs:

Whether you love a long relaxing soak in the bath surrounded by candles or prefer a rejuvenating spritz under the shower, your bathroom linens can really help set the mood for your day (or night). There’s something so pleasing about seeing beautiful linen towels hanging in a row, or folded neatly in a pile. Or freshly laundered face cloths ready to gently cleanse your skin, and maybe?to wipe some sticky fingers and chins at children’s bedtime. Here’s our Spring edit of gorgeous bathroom linens, from waffle to huckaback and in the perfect tones for the new season.

Let’s get real – it’s hard to leave bed when there’s a chill in the air. So how can you make the transition a little easier? The idea here is to extend your comfy, dreamy space slightly beyond your bed. The floor may feel cold to the touch when you get up, so you’ll need something to burry?your feet into. Try placing a rug next to your bed rather than in front of it, that way, you will be creating a “corner” visually (whether or not a wall is near the side of your bed), while also making the atmosphere more plush and nourishing. Add a side table or a chair and a place for books, a dream journal and your favorite cup of tea or coffee. This little nook also works as a great meditation space for when you need to clear your mind upon rising or before resting. As a final touch, a table lamp, a wall sconce or a hanging light will create a softer feel than overhead lighting when you’re reading before a restful night of sleep.

Though the calendar tells us otherwise, it’s hard to believe it’s time to put away our summer things and start getting ready for fall. But as the many-hued leaves remind us, there’s no time like the present to strap on your gardening gloves and grab your shovels, rakes, and trimmers. To make outdoor chores that much easier, we’ve put together this guide on how to prep your yard and garden for fall, over the next few weekends.
