    My love for the gorgeous Pyar & Co pillows isn’t much of a secret. I am obsessed with the  amount of detail, design and love that goes into making each pillow. And after I met the beyond talented Paula Queen who is the owner and designer of the line, I knew that was the beginning of a friendship and of course a strong working relationship.

    I have carried these glitzy fluffy pillows in The Shop since last fall and am looking forward to expanding the offering after the new collection hits the streets.   Pyar & Co’s blog recently launched the first of it’s MARKET PLACE columns and I am so honored to be included it it!  They pulled together a great round-up of pieces from Shop Ten 25 and asked me to share a little bit of design advice too! Think Luxe on a budget. Pop on over and take a look….all of the pink will make you smile!

    Chic Custom Pillows

    It’s no secret that I’m digging animal accents for 2013 (just check out the DHome and Shoebox Decor articles) and I am so excited to finally share these custom Belgian Nubby Linen pillows with the embroidered rams head.

    First, a little background info about this project. The concept was directly inspired by the client’s zodiac sign, aries. She has a few special pieces of jewelry and accessories that she’s collected over the years. We though it would be fun to incorporate this into the space, but didn’t want it to scream “zodiac sign.”

    The custom-made pillows from Ankasa used a special embroidery technique to create the stunning 3D effect. These are the  initial sketches of the concept for the pillows. Pictured below is the strike off that we approved for the final design.

    And here’s the finished product: a chic interpretation of the aries sign. I love how this represents something near and dear to the client’s heart and creates a one-of-a-kind animal accent (one of my very favorite trends for 2013).

    The Ultimate To & From Gift Guide

    I love this time of year!  I have become obsessed with all of the gift guides out there in blog land, I have relied on them for the past few years when trying to find fabulous gifts.  Since I don’t have much time or patience for stoping by the mall, online shopping is such a great way for me to get my Christmas shopping done.

    This year two fabulous bloggers (Katie from Modern Eve & Meg from Meg Biram/formerly of Mimi +Meg) have created To & From! To & From Magazine is HUGE gift guide curated by tons of fashion and design bloggers.  I love how it is organized and how each blogger has a category that they focused on.

     

     

    I am also pretty happy to see that a few of the bloggers added pieces from Shop Ten 25 to their must have list!

    Meg From Meg Biram added the Lubbock Aluminum Cast Skull to her wish list.

     

     

    Julieann from CreateGirl picked gorgeous pieces for “the constant decorator”!  Our agate boxes, Fenton side table & Brass lantern all made her list!

    Weekend Window {Megan Adams}

    Introducing new artists and designers is one of my great delights in owning an online shop. There really is so much talent out there! Today’s featured artist crosses both platforms. Megan Adams not only creates beautiful, ethereal abstract paintings, but she also has a line of pillows inspired by those paintings. For my purposes, I’m thrilled!! This just means more ways to incorporate her stunning work into my client’s homes!
    Megan’s designs pair wonderfully with the whimsy of the Lola table and bright color of the Orange Pagoda lamp. How would YOU incorporate her pieces into your home?
