I'm in San Francisco this week for a few different reasons. First, I'm meeting up with AIA to chat about Architecture Month and their Tour of Homes that's happening this September. I'll post a video soon of what that's all about. I'm also working with Pottery Barn on a video that will air on their site about color and paint. Both are great projects that I'm very excited about!
Have you seen the new Pottery Barn's Hot Ideas For Fall Color? This is one designer's eyebrow being raised at great finds for the upcoming season! I'm smitten (yes, smitten) with three things in their new line.
Quilts usher in the season of warming up with friends and family and Pottery Barn has a very nice selection this fall. I've been in touch with the designer of the Patchwork Rings quilt and will share her thoughts on color and design in a separate post in the upcoming months. As it turns out, she's really a fabulous designer and has an incredible gift that I can't wait to blog about soon.
I've been searching for a unique chandelier for my breakfast area and found this very clever one from Pottery Barn that I have to share. It's so raw and unexpected that I love it! It's industrial and refined at the same time. I saved lots of corks over the years, but this is a great way to use the bottles, don't you think? This chandelier would be so great in a room with a color like Peacock Feathers on the walls.
Oh, and this is simple, but I love these embroidered sheets from their collection called Anne Marie bedding. It's a refreshing take on the age old tree-of-life patterns found in traditional arts. For everyday design, I really like the fact that it incorporates both warm (reds/oranges) and cool (blues/greens) colors because that allows you to change your wall color and accents to reinvent the room as often as you would like!
Where do you look for every day finds that can add a splash of great color and design for us all?
