Though it snowed this morning (why God???), I am hopeful that springtime and sunshine is around the corner which makes me want to incorporate more punchy colors into my space, as well as my wardrobe. The easiest and most cost-effective way to do that is through pillows. Pottery Barn has really upped their game lately and gotten onto the refined boho ethnic train and I am all about it. Here are some of my favorite pillow covers from Pottery Barn’s new spring collection:

This watercolor stripe pillow cover has the painterly feel I love and is a pretty cute knockoff of a $525 Madeline Weinrib pillow.

The popular wedding blanket pillow cover now comes in navy, and I think it would add a lot of great texture to an already navy-and-white pillow collection or on its own on a bench or window seat.

These diamond ikat bolsters would look great against both solid white and patterned bedding.

I love the colors and cheery pattern in these Natalie pillow covers.

This pom-pom stripe pillow cover is really fun and would add a lot of warmth and youth to an otherwise buttoned-up space.

The punchy tangerine color of this Andrea print pillow cover is just yummy. A lot of ikat prints out there can be a miss but this one is perfect. Again, another totally great knockoff of a $525 Madeline Weinrib pillow.

These Sloane ikat lumbars just makes me happy and would look great on a neutral linen armchair, with a tropical cocktail in hand. :)

Tip: when stuffing a square pillow, I like to go two inches larger for the pillow insert. For example, if I’m using a 20″x20″ cover, I like to stuff it with a 22″x22″ down pillow insert to give it extra plumpness and oomph.

finding myself.

It took me six years out of college with a series of non-linear paths, a mortgage to pay, and a 7-month old baby at home to figure this out, but I've finally realized that interior design is my passion and I want to pursue it further. To get my feet wet, I've decided to continue my education by … Read More

Dining Room Project: Progress Post 2

*See previous posts on the dining room project here, here, here, and here.* So, as you know I have been thinking a lot about my dining room furniture.

Ice cream recipes I want to try.

Colored Leather Chairs and Barstools

Since having a baby, I've realized how important it is to have resiliency in your furnishings. I keep coming across rooms I love with with colored leather upholstered chairs and barstools and I just think they are genius and chic. Unlike a fabric-covered chair its spills would wipe up easily, and … Read More


I am not invincible.

My poor little bubba and I are sick right now with a viral infection. It all started after going to a Mommy and Me class at the library last Tuesday, where there were a million babies running around putting things in their mouth, my own included. It took a day to manifest itself, and the following … Read More

Black and White Checkerboard Floors

Every time I see a room with black and white checkerboard floors, I just smile. I think I innately associate them with happy memories because my parents have a checkerboard floor in their garage in LA where we would always throw parties growing up, and we had a checkerboard dance floor installed in … Read More

Baby-Led Weaning, Spoon Feeding, and Breastfeeding Update

I got a lot of good response from my last post on feeding Oliver so I thought I'd post an update. Like I mentioned before, we are doing a "mix" of baby-led weaning and spoon feeding. Sometimes I let him pick up and gnaw on pieces of food, and sometimes I mash food up and spoon feed it to him, or … Read More


DIY Blue and White Antique China Gallery Wall

A few weeks ago I talked about displaying my collected blue and white china plates in a gallery wall. Now that my dining room walls are painted, I finally got around to doing it! I used these disc plate hangers, then mapped out the arrangement on the floor and played musical chairs until it felt … Read More

Chicken Antipasto Salad

In the spirit of my intention to make food in bulk, I decided to make this chicken antipasto salad which makes a huge bowl. It's great because it can be made ahead of time and does not need to be served hot to be delicious. It tastes even better than those antipasto salads you often find at Italian … Read More
