Lookee what I won

A crazy-colored suzani for $59.
It measures 55" x 89".

It arrived looking like a Charlie Sheen party favor.
The Uzbeki Kinko's truly kicks it old school.

Here it is draped over a railing airing out.
After a good cleaning, it's going in our last bedroom
to be decorated. Mood board to follow...

LOVE anything with orange..so I adore your new suzani treasure! And love the wax seals on the packaging! Isn't it funny that others noticed and feel the same?!

SCORE!
Airing out, huh? Giving your space House-a-tosis?
Can't wait to see it in situ.

What a fabulous score! -- and at a better price than I paid for my pair o' Suzis back in Istanbul.
I am chomping at the bit to see the mood board unveiling.
These are the colors I used in Tarek's room -- must send you some snappage. Picture the West Elm parsons desk in the paprika shade and a phat matching blue and orange pouf.
A Charlie Sheen party favor! Girl, you light up my life ;)

Oh BTW, you mentioned a good cleaning -- be very careful, as these babies tend to be tinted with vegetable dies that can bleed and run. I'd suggest a haute febreze of some sort and a light spot-cleaning, but no submersion.

Agree with Alcira. One of mine has crocked terribly. Color smudged off on another throw. Yours is just gorgeous. Can't wait to see the moodboard. And I'm still chuckling over the Charlie Sheen party favor line.

Scary package.

Miss Rubio said...

Wow!!! Beautiful. I Love the colors...obsessed with orange. Thanks for linking me to this post. I a sure it looks amazing on the bed :-) Is it over white bedding? I would imagine the colors would look incredible against white.

Miss Rubio - It tops a navy boutis in a room with apple-y olive walls.
