Entertaining, Holiday | | | Leave a comment

To celebrate Thanksgiving, we asked our Instagram followers to take photos of their decor using the hashtag #pbgiving. You can view all of the lovely photos that were submitted here, and today we’re sharing a few different Thanksgiving decorating moments from the photos that were submitted using the #pbgiving tag. Want to get involved next time? Tag your winter holiday decorating moments with the hashtag #pbholiday. We’re excited to see how you’re decorating your home, and what Pottery Barn products you’re integrating into the mix. For the Thanksgiving holiday, Instagram user bridgetcarey decorated with a bowl of seasonal pumpkins and pinecones and pillows that stayed on-message. Simple and beautiful!   We love the inspired pattern mixing on Instagram user courtieg‘s Thanksgiving table. The whimsical Partridge in a Pear Tree Salt and Pepper Shakers  add  another layer of charm to the table.   Mums and pumpkins add seasonal color to the neutral tones in this photo from Instagram user sheatonio. We love her selections of black and white family photographs. Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to remember loved ones who might not be able to make it to your celebration, and reflect on shared memories.     Another inspired tablescape comes courtesy of Instagram user jtholmes, who snapped this photo of her family’s feast. We love the centerpiece, crystal and charming nametags.   Want to share a photo from an upcoming winter holiday celebration? We’d love to see your photos from Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and other celebrations and holidays. Just tag your Instagram photos with #pbholiday to share photos.

Adding Texture and Visual Pop With Our Fur Collection

Decorating, How-To and tagged , , | | | Leave a comment

We recently asked Angela, an editor at CasaSugar, to style some pieces from our fur collection at her home. She told us that she had fun integrating the pieces into her home, and sent us this shot to share.

“The idea was to try add a wintery spin to my uber-traditional brown corduroy sofa. Piling on layers of patterned and textural accessories not only made the sofa feel cozier, but it really helped to bring in some of my personality to the piece,” Angela told us. “To get the look, I folded one of my favorite quilts and tucked it into the cushions to break up some of the brown. Since the quilt was brown and white, adding two different colored fur pillows didn’t look out of place. In fact, I think it added more of an eclectic feel. The flokati rug complemented the texture of the furry pillows and also stayed within the brown and white color palette. A flame stitch pattern on the ottoman also didn’t clash with the bold print of the flokati because of the varying scales of the two patterns. Finally, I grabbed a bright teal pom pom throw and folded that over the arm to add a pop of color, and of course, more texture. Even flowers can be used to highlight the details you want to emphasize – I like to fill apothecary bottles with yellow craspedia to pick up on the fun pom pom trim on my teal throw.”
