The Annual White Sale is On!

Since most of you are likely snuggling up in bed today with this arctic blast happening I thought I’d share some of my favorite bedding options with you.  And have you noticed many retailers are hosting their annual “White Sales”? From bedding, sheets and pillows to towels, shower curtains and bathmats, January is a great time to stock up on staples for your home. I’ve been seeing lots of white, lavender, navy, and seafoam in the best of the sales this year, all great additions to any color palette.

You all know I love me some color and bold patterns! But I’m also a huge fan of mixing some neutral pieces into my colorful designs. I’ve listed a few of my favorite things on sale below with links in the captions. But hurry, some of these sales end in the next few days!

Bedding

I love to layer bedding, combining solid colors and florals with a neutral coverlet or throw. My favorite luxury bedding line is D’Porthault. Their patterns are iconic and I love to mix them with simple bedding staples. AND their famous sale is going on right now!  

One Kings Lane is having a great sale on bedding, including a few of my favorite companies. Matouk is fantastic, I love their embroidery styles and applique options they have for duvets and shams.

 I love this sweet embroidery  style  and the apricot hue.

  This style  would look great in a young boys room.

Sheets

Sferra has fantastic sheets, and I love their plain white percale sheeting (it’s what I have on my bed at home). These are great quality, super soft, and wash/wear so well!  Horchow is having 30% off until the 17th!

Bath

Towels and bathmats are a great place to go white as you can throw them in the wash with bleach and call it a day! Easy cleaning for the win.

My favorite towel brand: Ralph Lauren. I watch for these to go on sale at retailers like Macy’s and grab new bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths. I like to replace our everyday and guest towels every couple of years and my guests always comment on how soft they feel. Towels are another great place for a fun monogram too!  I’ll take these to my local monogram shop to make them more custom.

Tis the Season for Decorating

Can you believe Christmas is 13 days away?! Where has the time gone? The Christmas Season is my absolute favorite, and what a treat we had last week in the south with a surprise snow fall!  This is a time for family and friends, lights and decorations, and celebrating the year’s best memories. Especially now with young children at home, it makes this time even more magical.

Decorating for any holiday brings me great joy.  I’m always looking for inspiration throughout the year for not only my client’s homes, but my own. From fresh trees to vintage ornaments as well as sentimental pieces we’ve picked up throughout the year, my approach to holiday decor and entertaining is a direct reflection of me and my family.

Fresh is Best

Fresh trees, garland, and foliage not only bring texture and authenticity to your decor, but the smell of fir is the epitome of Christmas to me. I love adding greenery to Holiday center pieces, vases throughout my home, entertaining tablescapes, or tied to a present. Amaryllis, paper whites, citrus, pomegranates, boxwood and magnolia leaves all add color and a freshness to your decor, making pieces you reuse every year, look different. A tip: search your own yard for greenery you have on hand; you would be surprised what you have in your own backyard to spruce up your Christmas table! 

Vintage Touches & Sentimental Ornaments

Adding vintage glass ornaments to your trees and wreathes or vintage plates to your Holiday table blends old and new, which is a theme of my decorating style no matter what the project. Vintage glass and the story it tells is always beautiful. Local antique malls always have a nice collection this time of year. Sentimental ornaments add a personal touch to your Christmas tree. To look at an ornament and be reminded of a trip or memory my family experienced is a sweet touch.

Hanging Stockings with Care

Some of the best details are the little ones like stockings and a tree skirt. Sometimes the smallest attention to detail like custom family stockings or a coordinating tree skirt, can make your holiday decor the most personal. Pick fabric you love and have a local seamstresses make stockings or a skirt that brings it all together and coordinate with your interiors. I discovered Splendor Collections out of San Antonio at the Theta Design Weekend and love their Fortuny stockings!

All Around the House

I love to add small holiday touches throughout my home.  You'll find white linen hand towels in my guest bath with red embroidery with a sprig of holly in a bud vase, a pink tree in my toddlers bedroom, and boxwood wreaths hung on my bedside sconces and a pink poinsettia on my dresser.  It's the small touches throughout that I love.  

In need of more holiday decor inspiration? Check out this Pinterest board I put together of some of my favorite looks. In this season, however you decorate, making your home a cozy reflection of you and your family will bring you the greatest joy throughout the season. 

Wishing you all Happy Decorating and a Merry Christmas!
