Do You Rue? + First Look at My Home!

Over at Rue we like to play around in photoshop for a little creative outlet when we get stressed (case in point). So, the other night the girls and I thought it'd be fun to create some "Do You Rue?" buttons to share with all of you!
And, the room with the pink might just be my favorite. Why you ask? Because that's actually my living room... Welcome to my home:
I receive a lot of reader emails asking what my place looks like, but am always hesitant to share. I'm a rather private person when it comes down to it and prefer to put images of other peoples' homes out there than post my own. So until now I never have.
But I realized that wasn't fair of me as so many of you open up your lives to me on a daily basis. And what better place to debut my cozy little bachelorette pad than in the premiere issue of Rue! So for everyone who's ever asked, my full home tour will be in the first issue of the magazine! I just have one little request of you: don't be too cruel if you don't like it.

P.S. Feel free to spread the word with a "Do You Rue?" button on your blog. It's easy - just click here for the buttons, post it in your margins, and link to our site!

You have a gorgeous home Crystal. The sense of style is perfection and can almost feel as though you are also inspired by fashion. I adore and look forward to Rue's launch!

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

Debby - the pillows are cowhide! And thanks so much for your kind words! But it's not us, it's YOU guys! We could not do it without the support and collaboration from all of YOU.
