“In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins”
1 John 4:10
Ever have places that are a “must stop” when you’re shopping? We have an outdoor mall that is my favorite in Birmingham, and I like to go there as often as I can! Doesn’t a girl love to just look around?! Last December, while Butch and I were Christmas shopping, we walked into one of my usuals when I am there….Pottery Barn. It is imperative that I check out the tablescapes and the new products every time I am close to one! As I was perusing the store, I couldn’t help but notice their new and oh-so-colorful summer bedding! Changing out the bedding seasonally is not something I normally do, but this was a fun tropical pattern with turquoise, rust, and golds…absolutely perfect for our master bedroom! So, when late spring came along, so did the new bedding! One thing I love about the colors is that they are appropriate for spring and summer! The pattern is called Fauna and it definitely adds a bit of whimsy! You all know how much I love color…the birds and butterflies are alive in beautiful bright hues! You can see that my walls are peacock blue/turquoise – so the pattern is perfect! I have always loved pillows but as I have gotten older I don’t enjoy putting them on and taking them off nearly as much! This bedding is just fun, and not so serious! As an interior decorator (now retired) I had the best workroom and fabricator that designed and made this silk pillow. It is a braiding technique and it is unique! You know that in the South we are fond of monograms, so it was a must for the bed! I often used monogrammed pillows for clients!
The bedding complements my eclectic Schonbek lamps! I unfolded the duvet to show more of its pattern! A matelasse coverlet always covers the bed! A view through the iron footboard! Thank you for taking time out of your everyday living to visit with us! We enjoy all of your comments!
