Summer is finally here and with it comes a barrage of house guests and constant entertaining. We love it but it does take a bit of effort, preparation, and a reasonable budget. In fact, we are always surprised at how much it actually costs to host friends and relatives. In addition to the basics, such as stocking the fridge with fresh vegetables and produce, most summers, just before our guests begin to arrive we inevitably seem to find ourselves in desperate need of fresh towels or sheets or even a shower curtain. And of course, we are always searching for that little something special that will freshen the guest room up and help transform it from fine to fabulous. Continue Reading →
We happened upon this great Tiny Prints instagram today and had to re-post it. We love the idea of adding just a touch of holiday cheer to every room in your house. You do not need to decorate every inch of the room from floor to ceiling, just add a couple of fabulous Christmas throw pillows here and there and you are set. We come across lots of pillows every single day and so far, these Tiny Prints Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls pillow are our hands down favorites. As we come across other pillows we like, we will continue to update this post.
Make a fashion statement with Tiny Prints customizable pillows. Pillows come in your choice of black or ivory finish for the back. A hidden zipper enclosure makes it easy for you to remove the synthetic-filled insert and machine-wash when needed.
I can just imagine my mom's adorable white maltese, Sugar's face on a pillow! How perfect a Mother's Day present is a personalized photo pillow. I hate to admit it but I do think she would prefer a single “Sugar” pillow to 9 individual pillows all with her grandchildren's smiling faces. Although as I was perusing the newest Shutterfly product offerings, I did notice both a Gallery Monogram pillow and a Collage Squares pillow that could easily solve the “too many pillows” conundrum.

Jonathan Adler Home Decor & Design Ideas
There is no doubt, I am immersed in what I like to call “summer sprucing.” Just last week I ordered new appliances to replace our barely functional, gook encrusted 20 year old refrigerator and dishwasher. This week's project: I want to remove my ratty built in kitchen desk ruined years ago during my pragmatic stage when I took I a hacksaw to the desk and haphazardly created a cutout for an ugly metal file cabinet.
Where am I now turning for inspiration? I already knew I was in love with Jonathan Adler‘s new collection of bed & bath accessories but until now, I had never explored his furniture line. It blew me away – I am now absolutely obsessed with the Jonathan Adler Channing Desk which will fit perfectly into my existing space. I love the glamorous simplicity of it's design and even though it is very contemporary, it will mix in well with my more traditional pieces.
Although I am currently not decorating my own bedrooms or baths, I have forwarded photos of Jonathan Adler's bed & bath collection to my daughter as she decorates her new apartment. I like the idea of adding splashes of color and pattern to a bathroom with Jonathan Adler's Shower Curtains. Jonathan Adler throw pillows toss in a sense of modernity to any sofa or bed.These pillows are gorgeous with their hand-embroidered long stitches and colorful patterns. The Hollywood Navy Printed Sheet Set and duvet is a contemporary approach to Hollywood Regency style. I also think this bedding would work great if coordinating linens with a roommate since this pattern is available in both blue and gray. Together you can definitely create a fun “happy chic” vibe.
