Must-Reads: A Victorian Restore with Rug Inspiration & Moulin Rouge Hits Broadway

Every Monday, we corral five links from around the web worthy of sharing. On tap for today: an Instagram documenting a Victorian home restore in upstate NY worth following along, the maximalist grandeur of the new Moulin Rouge that just hit Broadway and a tour inside a Texas farm designed by a pair of artists. {hero image via Texas Monthly by Jeff Wilson}

ON STAGE.

Have you ever been allured to see a move solely for its aesthetics? Think Great Gatsby, La La Land or the recently released Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Then there's cult-favorite musical Moulin Rouge, which just hit the Broadway stages, and it's a spectacle for anyone who appreciate Parisian fanfare. This piece takes us behind-the-scenes of all the details in the set design that recreates the same "lushness of frenetic energy" of the cult-favorite 2001 film. {image via Bloomberg

RESTORE WITH RUGS.

We love following a house renovation, and these days Instagram is one of the best ways to get raw, behind-the-scenes footage of a 360-degree transformation. Take @thelavenderghost, for instance, who is redoing her Victorian abode in upstate NY. This one's especially noteworthy on our end for its incredible use of rugs throughout the home. We had to pull a photo of the stair runner with its furry friend -- have you seen our latest installs like this? Check them out on our 'gram{image via @thelavenderghost}

HOME DEPARTMENT.

Some of the sites we turn to for the very best in fashion are also great destinations for home decor. If you've never perused Moda Operandi's home department, it's worth a visit even if it's just to be inspired by the beautiful product and lifestyle imagery. Our current favorite? These gorgeous leather game sets by Giobagnara that would make perfect gifts. {photo via Giobagnara}

ARTIST POWER COUPLE.

We love seeing where creative couples dwell as their homes always reflect their artistic callings and unique point of view. Such was the case with fashion photog Harper Smith and her husband, lead singer of the country band, Midland. Their Dripping Springs farm is full of travel treasures collected from Santa Fe to Jackson Hole and amazing finds from the likes of Amazon. See the full home tour here. {photo via Texas Monthly}
