The Finishing Touch: Throw Pillows

As a designer, I find that sometimes the most difficult part of the design process is figuring out the finishing touches. One item that can make a room complete are throw pillows that add dimension and a unique touch. I like to find pillows that can add an element of texture, pattern, and color that would otherwise not be present in the room.

1.) Chenille Floral Designer Pillows


2.) White Moroccan Floor Pillow


3.) Custom Duralee Ikat Pillows (on sale!)


4.) Royal Blue Hand Loomed Silk Velvet Pillow


5.) Handmade Suzani Pillow


Pillows that I love can be difficult to find. I don’t want them to look generic and I am definitely particular about the quality of the fabric they are made from. One terrific source is Chairish, where there is a multitude of choices of quality pillows. I like to have a mix – some of silk velvet and others linen or cotton. Be sure that all the pillows you chose will go together nicely as a group. While it can be a challenge, in the end, the throw pillows you chose can improve the look of a room tremendously.

On the Hunt: Dining Room Chairs

On The Hunt : Chairs | Sacramento Street

A great way to avoid having a home that looks cookie-cutter is to make sure there is a mix of both old and new. What better way to do this than mixing modern and vintage chairs at your dining room table.

On The Hunt : Chairs Inspiration | Sacramento Street1.) Burke Tulip Chairs


2.) Mid-Century Modern Arm Chair


3.) Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Armchairs


4.) Knoll Tulip Chairs


5.) Stratham Mid-Century Modern Loveseat


6.) Nicos Zographos Chairs


At my table I have four modern chairs with sheepskins on the seat to add a bit of comfort. In between these chairs, I’ve added two vintage bentwood chairs from Spain.

 

Another trick is to have a loveseat on one side of the table. Not only is this a comfortable option, but it helps to make your dining room warm and inviting.

 

Finally, why not have an upholstered chair at each end of the table? I guarantee it will draw you in and you’ll linger with a good book and a cup of tea. These easy ideas can be the difference in a dining room never being used or a place you enjoy and choose to use.

 

One of my go-to places for unique items is Chairish. This is a site you want to use often, as the merchandise is always changing. You can find a unique set of chairs to mix with those you already have. And before you know it, you’ll want to hang in the often-overlooked dining room.

In my eyes, you can never have too many candleholders. I use them for just about event dinner party and around our house. They cast a beautiful light that makes dinner parties feel magical and a cozy evening indoors special. There is probably a candle being burned at all hours in our house.

1.) Recycled Glass Pillar Candle Holder


2.) Grey Opaque Glass Honeycomb Lantern


3.) Clear Glass Teardrop Lantern Candleholder


As we see a glimmer of hope that spring might be around the corner I’ve pulled together a handful of my must haves for this season that can be used both inside and outside – weather permitting of course! Buy a handful as an excuse to throw a big dinner party with friends. Afterwards you can style them around the house for a new look on your mantle or coffee table.

On The Hunt: Throw Blankets

I know that I’m not alone when I tell all of you that I have an obsession with throw blankets. It’s a problem. I seem to find one where ever I go – whether it’s from traveling, or my go-to shop – I’ll find an excuse for needing it. I tell myself “this would be the perfect addition to that stack on my bookshelf” or “the corner chair needs a new throw to give it an update” or “this would be the perfect picnic blanket.” While I do this with other things as well, throw blankets are a weakness for me  can you blame me?
