Ally-Catherine Trenary has always had a penchant for the custom & colorful! She's a long time supporter of SS which is evident in her vibrant home! And just like us, custom is the name of her game. Ally-Catherine recently launched a beautiful bespoke rug company, June St. George. With her 10-pound sidekick and biggest fan, Sailor, by her side, she is ready to create a rug that is uniquely, distinctly you and that will weave together your past, present and future generations to come.
Scroll below to see how Ally-Catherine took advantage of our custom SS designs and how she's paired them with her beautiful rug styles.
We love how Ally-Catherine paired our Duchess Chairs in Schumacher Citrus Garden with her custom monogrammed rug in her dining room.
Ally-Catherine's Design Tip:
The most common rug buying fear is “what size should I buy?!” Everyone has different opinions and while every space is different, there is an easy rule of thumb: at least two legs of furniture should sit on the rug. But don’t be afraid to throw out the rule of thumb and try something unique – I absolutely love smaller coordinating rugs on each side of the bed! It makes sure you start your morning on the right foot (pun definitely intended!) by stepping out of bed onto something luxurious and warm.
An easy way to pick the right size rug for your space is to take old magazines or even painter’s tape and create an outline of your rug in the size and shape you think is right. Arrange your furniture until you know which size is right for you!
For her bedroom, Ally-Catherine made a cozy seating area in the corner featuring our Stevie Swivel in a COM Schumacher emerald velvet paired with a piece of our Reflections art! And for the foot of her bed, Ally-Catherine chose our Kelly Faux Bamboo Bench in a luxurious vintage velvet! And don't forget the pups! Our Pagoda Pet Bed is the perfect resting spot for sweet Sailor.
