Emily & Meritt for Pottery Barn

I was very excited to see the full line of Emily & Meritt for Pottery Barn that was released yesterday.
It contains some of my favorite colors and patterns.. black/white and ticking stripe.


Emily & Meritt have done lines for PB Teen and kids in the past and it's so nice to see them in the more adult buyers world of Pottery Barn. I love the way they take classic staples, fabrics and colors and put their fun twist on it. For example the bunny art, the stars of the duvet and shams, the tassles on the drapes, the hand collection. It takes what could be a very sophisticated room and puts a bit of youth and whimsy into it. Who can't use a little youth and whimsy in their life?

Here are some of my favorites from this line.

 A huge fan of ticking stripe, it never gets old for me.



This sconce is beautiful leather and brass!!


 Fun rugs. The top rug has a little stripe of blue in it.

 I can definitely see this pillow in my family room.

  The drapes. Again the ticking stripe I love and the fun gold tassels.



That HUGE striped bolster! Love it!



Some fun art pieces. Isn't the bunny so cute?


 Very cute and fun dessert/appetizer plates and napkins. I could also see these fitting in well into my kitchen.

And this cute toiletry bag also might be finding it's place in my shopping bag.

I realize I used the word cute way too much in this post. I will need to start using a thesaurus.
Anyway, what do you think? What are your favorite pieces?
To see more of this line, go here.

Designs Just For You

Putting yourself out there to be judged and critiqued is not always an easy thing to do, especially when it comes to the areas of design, art, music, etc. because everyone has different tastes and strong feelings in those areas.
I have put myself out there by sharing photos of my home on my blog and on Instagram, hoping to inspire others with designing and decorating ideas however I have put myself out there to the public very little in ways of self promotion as a "decorator/designer for hire".
 This year, I am trying to come out of my shell more and really start on trying to start up my design business. My two dream jobs are to have a design business and to own a home decor boutique.
I realize those dreams won't come to fruition just sitting here waiting for it to happen, so....
here I am self promoting.
While I am a little green at this business, I have designed my own home and helped a friend with her kitchen renovation, which I hope to show you the before and afters here on the blog very soon.
One of the things I love most about designing is putting together "mood boards".














Before I launch this service on my website, I would love to create a custom mood board for you for FREE!
If you like my style and like the boards I've created above, then leave your name and email if you have a No Reply account and I'll create a board just for you. You will receive one board of one room of your choosing, however you will need a Pinterest account.
How to score a FREE custom board? Follow me on two of the following: Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest.  I will choose two winners on March 31st.
Hopefully, you'll see this as a win-win. More experience for me and you will get FREE design ideas for a room that you've been wanting to makeover or refresh.

I can't wait to help you design something!
