Baby Shower Diaper Cakes from The Honest Company

We are loving both these large Diaper Cakes and these Mini Baby Shower Diaper Cakes from the Honest Company.  They make wonderful baby shower gifts and can double as centerpieces! In fact even if you choose not to use a diaper cake as your centerpiece, we implore you to definitely consider using them as decor around your room. Think desert buffets. Or tie a bouquet of baby shower themed balloons to the top and use 2 diaper cakes to flank your entry.

..The Dyson Air Multiplier Table Fan 

Just last week I was shopping with my brother-in-law Andy who is in the midst of moving from Hanover, New Hampshire to Washington, D.C..  On the top of his wishlist was this exact  Dyson Air Multiplier Table Fan.  We must have spent at least 15 minutes ogling it. Between its stunning product design and patented air multiplier technology it was hard to resist And in the end, he didn't.  When we got home, Andy ordered this incredible fan on Amazon!

Easy Home Updates for Outdoor Entertaining

Guest Post by Amy Spagnola for LuxeDecor

Summertime is the season for spending hours lazily lounging and socializing outside with friends and family. Warm temperatures and long light encourage conversations and cocktails porch-side. From a fresh patio set to glamorous garden accessories, there are endless options for adding fresh ambiance to your yard and outdoor spaces.

If you are seeking to bring excitement and energy to your outdoor nook, here are some especially relevant tips and tricks for creating the ultimate oasis fit for endless outdoor entertaining. Continue Reading →

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

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.

New! ModCloth Dorm Room Decor

We are so excited to announce that ModCloth, well known for its fabulous vintage and indie clothing has just launched a new ModCloth Home Decor Collection just in time for back to school decorating.

We love the fact that so many of their products are exclusive to ModCloth so you won't go into the room next door and see a carbon copy of your dorm room decor.

The anchor duvet cover would be absolutely perfect for a DG (Delta Gamma sorority sister) and how fabulous is this black & white cat duvet.  The wallpaper is removable and the hamper actually resembles a washing machine.  And check out this fabulous free verse duvet that comes with washable fabric pens with which to make notes and doodles. Designed like a sheet of lined paper, this duvet cover is soon to be filled with your beautiful verses and original sketches and will be a fantastic memory of your freshman year.

PIPs Pick – Fortuny Light Fixtures

Fortuny Light Fixtures

We are obsessed with everything Fortuny!

PIP's Pick – Fortuny Light Fixtures

As you are probably all too aware, I have finally started to tackle some too long delayed home maintenance which quickly morphed into a bit of a home remodel. It took me more than 9 months to choose my wood floors but it took me only about 2 minutes to choose my wall sconce. Admittedly, the fact that my entry hall chandelier is a Fortuny made it so much easier since I wanted the family room and entry way to visually connect to one another but not be exact duplicates.  The entry hall fixture is the classic medium sized Fortuny Suspended Decorated Silk lighting fixture in sage grey.  I picked it up years ago at a random shop in Los Angeles.  I had no idea if Fortuny made other fixtures and absolutely no idea where to find them.   And I am once again obsessed.  I fell in love with the Venetia Studium – Fortuny G-AF-019 Glass Cesendello on a Rod (it would make a fabulous statement piece) but settled on the Glass Cesendello with Decorative Metal Ring Wall Sconce, still very interesting and definitely much kinder on the budget which was starting to strain by the time I got to picking out lighting fixtures.  I liked the fact that the sconce was both a different shape and made from a different material yet had a signature Fortuny print.  Thank you Matt for my early Mothers Day present –

Thank you Matt for my early Mothers Day present – I love my new Fortuny sconce!!!!  (So much better than flowers)

Personalized Photo Pillows for Mom

Personalized Photo Pillows

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.

The Details

  • Stylish home decor with personalized designs that make a perfect complement to your bed or sofa.
Gallery & Collage Photo Pillows

Gallery and collage photo pillows are perfect gifts for grannies and grandpas with lots and lots of “grandbabies”

  • Hidden zipper enclosure with a synthetic-filled insert included
  • Sizes include 16×16 and 18×18 inches
  • Finished with a black or ivory back
  • Machine-washable cover
  • Limited time special offer – Free Standard Shipping on orders $30+

Party Hearty!
