Pottery Barn Spring 2015 Pillow Covers

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.

Dining Room Update Project: Progress Post 1

Over the weekend, we embarked on our dining room update project, and boy was it a learning experience. Like I mentioned before, we had originally planned on creating a chair rail 3 feet up the wall, so taped the wall and only painted above that point. So up the navy paint went (full crossover … Read More

Dining Room Update Project

After living with creamy white walls in my dining room for a year (Benjamin Moore Cloud White), I've grown tired of them. I think they look flat, yellowish, and tad bit boring (just in this room though, I love this white in other rooms). It's time to spice things up. My chandelier and accessories … Read More

Fruity Valentine’s Day Dessert Ideas (That Aren’t Too Complicated)

It's our tradition for Valentine's Day for hubby to make dinner while I make dessert. In my pre-baby years, I would have slaved for days over something like tiramisu with imported Italian ladyfingers and grassfed mascarpone or organic sun-ripened strawberry balsamic ice cream, but as they say, … Read More

My Favorite Overhead Light Fixtures

To me, there is nothing more lovely in a home than a beautiful overhead light fixture.

8 Baby Products I DIDN’T Need

On nine bajillion websites out there you'll find lists entitled "The Ultimate Baby Product Checklist" and "Baby Gear You Cannot Live Without," but what I learned is that these lists are really catered to the individual tastes of the author. While all babies need the proper essentials to eat, sleep, … Read More

our trip to Paris

We recently spent a few days in Paris with a few of my siblings and parents to celebrate the 21st birthday of my little sister who is studying abroad there (majorly jealous!). It was my third visit to Paris and each time I am reminded that it is my favorite city in Europe. We arrived in the midst of … Read More

Sleep Training: Day 1

When I say that I haven't slept in five months, I really mean that I haven't slept in five months. (Ok other than like, 2 nights.) We had a lovely time in Jamaica followed by the most amazing trip to Paris (more on that soon), and while I had a great time with my family and Oliver was a total rock … Read More
