on the lookout: throw pillows 01.09.2012


Decorative pillows are a great way to give a burst of energy to  a room without spending a lot. I found myself gravitating towards neutrals and saturated warm colors. There are so many fun graphic and global prints out there right now. Decisions…
links (left to right, top to bottom): Gray Suzani with Fuschia Applique Lumbar Pillow, Comalapa Brocade Pillow (the purchase of this pillow, along with many other handmade items from non-profit site, Mercado Global, helps Guatemalan women distribute their goods and provide for their families), Brasilia Diamonds Pillow, Vivacious Embroidered Pillow in pink, Set of Two Decorative Pillow Covers in Yellow Chevron, Chelsea Stripe Major Brown Pillow, Linen Stripe with Red Pillow, Hot Pink Stripe Pillow

on the lookout: scarves, scarves & more scarves 11.23.2011


I don’t think I can have enough scarves. Seriously! It’s that time of year where we live–it’s chilly and I just want to be bundled up all of the time–so scarves become my new uniform! Any one of these sure  would sure be a nice addition to the wardrobe!

In our dream world, we would have a place for multiple pendant lights in every single room and these are the ones we’d like to start with! Fun, eh? :)
