Go Back To Bed

Sometimes even the simplest things, like getting the mail, can slowly dissipate from your everyday routine. Remembering to incorporate this near effortless task at the shop has been somewhat of a challenge for me. It is really not that bad. I am being a bit dramatic, but checking the mail on a regular basis IS on my list for 2014’s new year’s resolutions. Believe! I bring this up because Jaclyn checked the mail today (since I had forgotten to do so) and we had received the Spring 2014 catalog from John Robshaw Textiles!

On a cold, quiet day like today, Robshaw’s rich color choices and bold patterns were just what I needed to get inspired. His bedding, in particular, can make even the most enthusiastic morning person want to crawl back under the covers. The Celi Bedding is neutral in color but powerful in pattern. The Nikolo Bedding has a sweet quality showcased in magenta and coral. Both of these collections could be the perfect backdrop for any of our John Robshaw decorative pillows that we have at the shop! Shown below.

Wining Allowed

JaneAl'sRoom

 

With transitioning into the colder months ahead, it is hard to resist the urge to spice up your home with warmer, cozier shades of cranberry, plum, and wine. Rich jewel tones, especially reds, can evoke an inviting yet glamorous quality in any space. We found such inspiration in Sea of Shoes’ blogger, Jane Aldridge’s Dallas, Texas home. She is only 21, but her collected style is one for the ages. In her bedroom, there are swanky layers of softness like fur, cotton, and velvet. That merlot faux fur throw is top notch!

Our love for the color wine (and wine in general) has trickled into the shop. You can find us drooling over this Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams London Chaise Lounge in amethyst any day of the week. We are also loving John Robshaw’s Tudela Decorative Pillow. Made of 100% Abaca, this pillow would make a punchy yet durable addition to any ultra lived-in space. With Madeline Wenrib’s one-of-a-kind Vintage Moroccan Rug showcased in a deliciously saturated plum, how could go wrong with incorporating a little wine into your home. Go ahead. Just say yes. If you are of age, of course. All of the items below are available to order through Coveted Home.

Pillow Talk & Pinning!

Ok, I know that title is cheesy..but I could not resist myself. We got a slew of new pillows in the shop with an array of hues and patterns to choose from. I know you have heard this a million times, but it is true, if you want to update your look with little cost, a beautiful pillow can do the trick. Every single pillow we have in the store is capable of accomplishing that task!

I have also started pinning products that we have in the store to my Pinterest board titled “The Coveted Home”, makes sense right? 🙂 Follow me there, my username is simply Jaclyn Joslin and I have even put a quick link to my profile page on the top right side of the blog. Besides The Coveted Home board I have some other awesome boards on Rooms to Covet, Things to Covet, Fashion and a few others.

A slew of new John Robshaw pillows:

 I seem to be obsessed with yellow currently, I only learned that after looking at one of my pin boards and noticed the color kept repeating itself.
 Love adding a round pillow to the mix!
 Sweet and small for a chair

Subtle color, bold pattern
The new DwellStudio bedding and pillows have not yet arrived, but I couldn’t help myself from posting a couple of the pillows that will be coming, I am so excited to get them!

On Trend: Global Textiles

If there is one trend that I am loving, it is the use of global prints in textiles for the home, fashion and art.

I am not a formal person. I would go so far as to say I live an informal life. This spills over in the designs I create. Someone once said of me: “If you are looking for frou-frou, keep looking,” and they were right. I really love creating comfortable and casual yet beautiful rooms.

One thing I try to squeeze into almost every design is some sort of global element. It keeps the room from looking too matchy or stuffy and creates a layered and collected vibe. And I just love the casual and relaxed feeling these prints lend to a design.

Global textiles have been popular in interiors for some time now. Designers such as John Robshaw have built entire lines around global textiles and have been successful at doing so.
The patterns can appeal to applications in fashion and the home. Pillows, shower curtains and window treatments all look stunning in global textiles.

But the prints lend themselves well to fashion also. From bags to robes to shoes, the application is interesting and mixes well with solids and even other prints. For someone scared of color or wanting to keep a neutral color palate, using a global pattern in a neutral color can really add dimension and interest to a design.

In a recent House Beautiful article, Robshaw said, “Global textiles appeal to so many people — they’re fun, you don’t tire of them and they bring dimension to your life.” My sentiments exactly.
