Fruitfull Shopping!

We're on a roll, now!
Suzanne and I met at Princeton Market Fair and hit Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn for some fill-ins to the bedding collections. We had reviewed some good possibilities in the mail order catalog, but felt the need to match them up in person to our current picks!

Success!! We found a fabulously luscious green blanket to fold at the bottom of the bed (this will take the place of our saldino (Italian foot warmer). Oh, so pretty and soft! Now this is the comfort factor we've been looking for. We also found a high thread count boudoir pillow, perfect for monogramming. Oh, and did I mention the perfect hand soap---aqua liquid soap in a clear and classy pump?!
We headed straight over to Pottery Barn and found silk dupioni drapery panels for a steal! (Perfect color in a chartreuse-y green) We'll doll them up with either trim or interesting hardware, not sure which.

I had brought along a personal favorite silk block plaid that I had used in my Sullivans Island project. Just as I thought, it was the finishing touch to our pallet and I think it's a "must have" splurge category for the project!!

And, just around the corner, we found a super stash of aqua Italian pottery plates that look as if we painted them with the walls.....where? Marshalls, of course! Wait till you see what we do with these!!

Bathroom color: SW Wheat Grass, walls and ceiling

Bedroom color: SW Quietude, walls and ceiling

We'll toss the cups (or, put them to good use in some one's kitchen!), and hang all of the plates as art!

Yes, it's coming together! Good progress. Good finds. Good time.Good design.

Saldino! Jessie and I were racking our brains trying to come up with that word.

Those blue plates are to die for.

Looking good guys! I've seen those plates and cups (hmm...Home goods?).

I love that color! Is that the same color you have in your basement?

Suzanne said...

Michelle, as one friend of mine said, "I thought it was a 'throw'", me too. ;)

LD, Yes. (Well, Marshalls. I've seen them in HG, & TJMaxx, too.)

Shannon, that's what i'm told. Same color.

Have I mentioned i'm loving the colors? Looks even better in person, of course. And without the painters tape.

Have a nice day!

The colors are beautiful but I think the block plaid is a must use as well!

Wonderful colors! I am putting these in my idea file, that is for sure. They are great alone, but together are delicious!!

Jill said...

I've never heard the word saldino before!

The colors are gorgeous, I can't wait to see the finished room.

SW Wheat Grass?! I just suggested that color for one of my "clients," all on my own! You're rubbing off on me.
