Track Quilt and Pillowcases

It’s often hard to find bedding for the modern-ish home. There’s just so much out there, and honestly, there’s also a whole lot of patterns that just don’t make me very happy. But this does. Simple stripes paired with bright(ish) colors give punch without going overboard on pattern.

This hand embroidered subversive pillow is quite delightful. Each pillow has varying colors of embroidery and therefore is one of a kind.

Koko: Eclipse 18 x 18 pillow

This reminds me of the upstairs playroom of my daycare in the late 70’s. Totally in a good way.

I really like the geometric grid with the amorphous design layered on top.

“Koko Company Pillows. Cozy, delicate and wonderfully creative. Polysilk and georgette appliqué and embroidery. Koko is a celebration of natural fibers. Linen, cotton, raw silk fibers that breathe and give off an calm, pensive luster. The sturdy weave of the fabrics are lightened by the fluidity of hand appliqué, lace closures, cross stitch embroidery and novelty buttons.”

Dwelledition Talon Bedding

I’m all for historical designs reinterpreted for our current design needs (or wants)…so, I’m shameless in promoting all well done interpretations, even if they’re a little higher than my budget allows.

“Dwelledition is a series of limited edition styles that represent the latest in dwell’s evolving design direction. dwelledition designs are as timeless with the luxury and quality that comes with 320 thread count, 100% combed, Egyptian cotton bedding. For the debut of dwelledition, dwell reinterprets old world details and historical European motifs into something current and modern. Talon, the first of two styles in this collection, was inspired by vintage Italian wallpaper. It features architectural details blown up to an iconic scale.”

Available in ink on manilla
Bedskirt is available in ink

silhouettes luxe silk & wool pillow

Hello. I love Thomas Paul’s pillows. Especially the silhouettes (I really want the white plate with the silhouette of the woman, but it seems to have sold out everywhere). And here they are on sale, in a few different color combinations. Aqua is shown here (front and back) but there’s also orange and green combinations as well. Don’t they make you happy?

Bamboo bath towels

It’s nice when the major retailers start selling renewable products:

“An eco-friendlier bath. Wrap up in a silky blend of 65% bamboo and 35% combed Egyptian cotton. Bamboo yarn absorbs faster than cotton, is softer than cotton, and is naturally antibacterial for hygienic daily use. Not to mention bamboo is grown in a pesticide-free environment.”

•Wide end hem border
•Made with soft, highly absorbent (600 grams), pre-shrunk yarns
•65% bamboo, 35% Egyptian cotton
•Machine wash warm, tumble-dry low

Fold Throw

This throw blanket would add that certain something to your bedroom. If you need that kind of thing. Also, it’s available in tons of different colors and stitchings and custom made to your specifications.

“Do you want a different blanket? Something unlike anything you’ve seen before?

We have a suggestion: FOLD blankets. They’re different. Bold. Colorful. Rare — you won’t find these at Target and never at Pottery Barn.

FOLD’s fluid geometric designs could only be produced by carefully hand-piecing the fabrics. Linda uses 100% wool flannel, and the blankets are great for year-round use.”
