Wild thing! Loving the animal print trend but nervous about bringing it home? Don’t be afraid of this safari-style — just treat those cheetah and zebra prints like neutrals, as shown in this chic patio from Lonny Magazine.

A tall screen composed of shutters and a zebra-print rug give this outdoor patio in Charlottesville, Virginia, the atmosphere of a true outdoor room. The symphony of neutral, natural tones feels lush and safari-like against the greenery.

Jewel Tones: Mixing Warm & Cool Hues

Decorating, Inspiration | | | 1 Reply

Interior and architectural designer John Saladino once said: “In choosing colors, follow nature’s lead.” This timeless bit of advice certainly lends true to the color palette for our latest collection.

Cool blues, rich browns, fiery oranges and bursts of sunflower yellow punctuate soft whites and neutrals — each color palette of cool, warm and mixed tones feels bold but natural.

cool tones final

Deep navy, bright sapphire and rich topaz — this season, our cool color palettes revolve around blue jewel tones.

warm hues

Our warm color palettes mimic the signature colors of bright autumn leaves. Use pops of orange, yellow and red to bring pops of vibrant and seasonal color into your home.

mixandmatch

Of course, nature doesn’t just define itself by cool and warm color palettes, which is why we picked each of these jewel tones to combine beautifully with one another. Don’t be afraid to mix warm and cool hues! The contrast creates just the right amount of drama.

Our New, Expanded Collection of Great White Dinnerware
There are a lot of good reasons why we love our Great White Dinnerware collection: it’s beautiful, classic and quality dinnerware that will stand the test of time.

This season, we’ve expanded the collection to include anything and everything your tabletop might be missing. Designed and developed by our in-house design team, the new Great White additions acknowledge that different people eat different ways — and that means we all want something different out of our dinnerware. Our new additions complement every style of cooking, eating and living.

Our Favorite New Additions
We don’t know what it’s like at your house, but coffee is a staple here at PB HQ, so our designers added a brand new set of coffee mugs, cups, creamers and sugar bowls into this collection.

We’ve also made serving food easier — whether you’re having dinner for two or twelve — with additional platters and bowls, a soup terrine, pitcher and small bowls and plates for appetizers and sauces.

Why We Love White Dinnerware
When it comes to dinnerware, there’s something special about simple and classic white dishes. White dishes give you a clean slate when decorating — whether it’s for a dinner party or deciding on a new wall color behind your open kitchen shelves. Plus, serving food on white dishes highlights your meal beautifully — perfect for the Instagram-loving foodie.

Great White Dinnerware Styles
Coupe: Slim in shape, but with a heavy and sturdy feel, the large size and high edges of Coupe make it great for serving.

Traditional: The original Great White — this classic shape never goes out of style.

Square: This style feels super modern and sleek, much like dinnerware in high-end restaurants.

Rim: The dainty flip on this style of Great White has a slightly old-fashioned feel, similar to antique, all-American dinnerware.

We’re so excited to offer you a beautiful collection with so much thought, time and care put into it by our design team. Whether you like to stick to one style, or mix and match, Great White has something for everyone.

Homes We Love: Dreamy Garden Patio from Lonny Magazine

It’s clear that we’re big fans of outdoor entertaining here at Pottery Barn. Whether it’s a backyard wine party or a picnic in the park, we love to make the most of warm weather while it lasts. To us, a great summer party can be just about anything — but casual elegance always wins out. Summer entertaining should be simple, easy and beautiful — that’s why we love this dreamy garden patio from Lonny Magazine.

This stylish space encompasses everything we love about entertaining this time of year — the lush landscape requires little decoration, but we love how the paper lanterns and leaf-print pillows jazz up the shaded patio. The casual floral arrangement and drinking glasses reflect the lanterns’ jaunty hues.

In honor of our second #pbcolorweek on Instagram, we’re hosting one of Lonny Magazine‘s beautiful turquoise-accented space for this week’s Homes We Love feature. This shaded patio outside Marrakesh, Morocco proves that there’s no need to shy away from contrasting patterns and prints. Tailored stripes and geometric tile create an intriguing, worldly look.

We love how turquoise, white and black make the entire design feel cohesive, despite the eclectic mix of patterns. Low Moroccan-style coffee tables make this a perfect spot to set drinks and appetizers, adding to the space’s casual but elegant ambiance.

Homes We Love: Hollywood Hills Garden from Lonny Magazine

Decorating, Inspiration | | | Leave a comment

We’re firm believers that love is what makes a house a home — home is where the heart is, after all. But that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy getting inspired by (and occasionally jealous of) amazing spaces and style. One can dream, right?

That’s why we’re so excited to introduce a new series on Inside & Out: Homes We Love. Once a week, we’ll be featuring a beautiful space from Lonny Magazine. Take a look at this week’s dreamy space for home design inspiration — or maybe just a little eye candy.

This multitiered garden in the Hollywood Hills provides a restful year-round retreat in Los Angeles’s temperate climate. Topiaries and brick pavers and steps create the feeling of an Italian piazza.
