An Inspired Patio

Monday, April 7th, 2014

I saw this drop dead gorgeous image of the terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York and thought it was fantastic inspiration for anyone’s own patio!  I have some of Peter Dunham’s Fig Leaf pillows in my own sunroom and even though it’s been seen everywhere I have to say I STILL love it above all other pillows in my home.  Some things just stay fresh, and this print is one of them.

So here’s how I’d translate this terrace into a patio or porch design…

inspired

sofa // curtains // light // pillow // glasses // table // chairs // lantern // string lights // rug // planters

And if the Peter Dunham is too pricey, there is a great alternative on Spoonflower by Domesticate called Tropicali Afternoon.

Sponsor Welcome: Arianna Belle

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

I have a serious addiction to throw pillows. They are by far the easiest way to change up the looks of a living room or bedroom without spending big bucks. I am always playing around with different samples for clients but never have actually had custom pillows made for my own living room! Isn’t that nuts? As I try to pick some for myself (finally), I get to introduce you to one of my new sponsors Arianna Belle, who makes pillows from designer fabrics for great prices. :)  And for right now she’s offering free shipping with the code EOSLOVE of your order of $100 or more (ONLY VALID UNTIL FEB 26, 2013).  Check out some of my favorites. SUCH great fabric selections- I’ve used many of these myself for clients!

Sheridan French Home

Monday, March 19th, 2012

I have long loved and admired the design sensibility and sense of fun that Sheridan French embodies.  And I was so happy to see a little feature on her new home accessories line in Traditional Home this month! Her signature bright ikats are being reincarnated as pillows, napkins and place mats and I am quite obsessed with her gold tone napkin rings in the shape of her logo.

And while we’re at it I might as well tell you that I am alllllll about these pieces for spring. Especially my upcoming Charleston trip!

Um, NEED.

NEED 2.0

Do we even need to discuss how cute and perfect she is? I didn’t think so. But we can.

New Pillows for Sale!

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

We added some fun new throw pillows to the Elements of Style Etsy shop!

I posted this picture on Twitter of the pillow I had made for my guest bed of this INSANE vintage fabric I found in an antique shop recently….

I had some pillows made to sell of the same fabric. I am obsessed with the color combination- dark green, chartreuse, pink, white and grey! YUM!

Some Celerie Kemble Betwixt pillows, perfect for any space.  Looks great paired with florals or any other organic pattern!

I found this ikat chevron fabric at Mood in NYC- I backed it in navy and added an applique border….

Who doesn’t love zebra? Especially zebra piped in turquoise!?

Etsy Find: JillianLee Home

Monday, November 1st, 2010

There are plenty of Etsy sellers that craft pillows from designer fabrics (or knock-offs of designer fabrics-imperial trellis much?)- but you might find that either they only have the fabric on one side or the patterns aren’t matched (which saves tons of fabric therefore making them cheaper). But JillianLee Home (who happens to be my sister in law) is a ninja at sewing and crafts designer pillows using the fabric on BOTH sides and matching the patterns up, adding invisible zippers and filling them with premium down fillers. If you are interested in any pillows please convo Jill and mention the EOS blog and get 15% off and discounted shipping!
