Butterfly and Leather Lace Pillow by Michaela Scherrer

Leather and lace plus some serious excess, does this perhaps remind you of a particular decade? I’ll leave the decision whether that’s a good or bad thing up to you.

“Inspired by vintage Japanese lace yet strikingly modern, these decorative pillows will create contemporary ambiance and provide soothing comfort.”

Pantheon Throw by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel

This throw isn’t a new thing, but I do keep admiring the design whenever I come across it. If you look closely, you can see images of tanks and grenades amidst the animals.

“The ordinary throw blanket may be a bit taboo in the design industry, seeing as its main function is to cover an old and unseemly couch… but when Marcel Wanders, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel get ahold of it, it’s another story altogether! Decorated with bold, graphic patterns, the July and Pantheon Throws are elegant and unexpected heirlooms, capable of transforming any room with their warm and inviting atmosphere. If you don’t have an old couch that needs to be saved, they look equally great draped over the bed, hung on a wall, or used as a tablecloth for those extra special occasions.”

Draper Stripe Ash bedding

Bedding can definitely be a challenge to find; this set is a great choice because it’s yarn dyed, which creates a softer feel than printed fabric, and it’s got stripes that add interest and color without overwhelming a smaller room.

“By reducing the decorative to its essential elements, we have
reinterpreted ornamentation in a fresh, minimal style for the
contemporary home. Attention to detail makes this collection
distinctive and unique – from the rich hand of the fabrics to the
addition of trim and fine tailoring.”

Draper Stripe Ash Standard Shams (pair), $77.00
