Long gone are the days when coral and turquoise were only suited for homes in Florida or the Bahamas. This summer, we’re bringing these bright and beachy hues into every room in the house. A turquoise pillow on a neutral sofa, a splash of coral on an all-white bed or a mix of both on an outdoor rug will help you and your home embrace the new season.
Take a look at some of our favorite (and ridiculously easy) ways to update your home with coral and turquoise this summer.
Shop our favorite coral and turquoise pillows, rugs and dinnerware.
Plus, check out our new summer color palette from Sherwin-Williams.
Let’s face it — real life does not look like a catalog. Who has time to steam their slipcovers and fluff their duvets every day?
But we also believe that real life can be just as (if not more!) inspiring and beautiful. That’s why we’re so excited to bring our #mypotterybarn gallery to life — where we’re inspired by you!
Take a look at some of our favorites (so far):

We love how these #mypotterybarn photos show how summer style can happen in any space — whether you’re lucky enough to have a sunny patio or covered front porch, or just plan to add some color to your tabletop or apartment balcony.

It’s almost Mother’s Day! Here at Pottery Barn, we’ve been celebrating moms all week long on Instagram with our #PBLovesMoms Contest. (PS: Click the link to enter now — there’s only one day left!) We’re loving all of the adorable photos that you’ve submitted with the most important woman (or women!) in your life. Take a look at some of our favorites (from fans just like you!) below.

What’s your favorite snapshot with Mom? We want to see it! Don’t forget, today is the last day to enter our #PBLovesMoms Mother’s Day Instagram Contest — click here to learn more.
What do you get the Mom who has everything for Mother’s Day? Or the one who insists she doesn’t need a gift? The answer’s easy (and trust us, anything but cliché) — flowers! Don’t flowers make everyone feel special? They’ll put an instant smile on her face. Plus, sneaking a Mother’s Day bouquet into a pretty vessel ensures that the gift lasts long after all the blooms wilt.
We love how Kiana Underwood of Tulipina paired her beautiful arrangements with some of our favorite vessels in these stunning shots. Our Voluminous Footed Bowl is the perfect accompaniment to her vibrant, blooming flowers.
Don’t worry — you don’t have to have Kiana’s amazing floral styling skills to pull this off. Just pick out a vessel (or two, or three!) that you know Mom will love, and head to your local flower stand or grocery store. Trim and size to each vase, and tie with a big bow or rustic twine to present at Mother’s Day brunch.

Have you been following House of Brinson‘s amazing guest room makeover? If you haven’t seen their process & progress in their upstate New York estate, Stony Ford, be sure to do so by following House of Brinson and #PBandStonyFord on Instagram. We were so excited to see the new wallpaper go up — what a transformation!
You can also get some of the back story behind this couple’s amazing project and home here.
We’re all for a great before and after (who can resist makeover magic?), but what’s particularly enchanting about the Brinson’s project is the history that they reveal and preserve along the way. The couple’s most recent endeavor — tearing down the layers and layers of the guest room’s wallpaper — disclosed several of the house’s secrets.
A signature from the person who originally hung the wallpaper in 1939 showed up behind one of the wallpaper panels.
Two gaps for one-time windows showed up at the back of the room, too — hinting at what may have once been Stony Ford’s original smoking room. “We’ve always wanted to know which room in the house was the Stony Ford Smoking Room. It’s kinda famous! Ulysses S. Grant smoked his last cigar in it,” says Susan Brinson.
What’s next? Brand new (and very dramatic!) wallpaper, fixtures, art and lots of finishing touches (like our Bailey Bedside Lamp, in the shot above). Want to see more? Read all about Susan and William Brinson’s most recent updates on House of Brinson.

When spring hits, I always go into spring cleaning and organizing mode. It’s just a natural reaction to good weather… I guess. And after I spring clean, I always re-style my shelves. I love to create a fresh look in my space when the seasons change.
For spring decorating, I usually gravitate toward a look that is more minimal and clean. Everything that I style has a purpose. Meaning, I add less items that have more value. For instance, in one of my shelves, I placed a wooden candelabra that I inherited from a Danish family member. I displayed it next to a hand panted antique ceramic and let the two items shine for themselves. Another purposeful styling choice is stacking books or magazines and displaying one heavy item on top of the stack. This vessel from Pottery Barn is a perfect choice to place on my magazines.
Another detail that I love to add in the spring is plants. They create such happy moments in a home. And sometimes more is better. But don’t go too overboard or you may begin looking like the crazy plant owner!
Macrame has been back for awhile now and I’m still loving it. This Macrame vase from Pottery Barn is everything! Leave it empty or fill it with flowers. However you choose to accessorize it, it will make your space look that much more awesome.
I’m loving Olive Green for this season,too. I added it with this long wick candle from Pottery Barn. It’s simple and cool.
