Summer Color Trend: Coral and Turquoise

Decorating, Inspiration | | | 1 Reply

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.

Our Favorite Summer #mypotterybarn Moments

Decorating, Inspiration | | | Leave a comment

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.

Do you have a #mypotterybarn moment to share? Follow us on Instagram and upload your photo with #mypotterybarn (or upload straight to our gallery page) — all photos posted before June 10 will be entered for a chance to win a $1,000 Pottery Barn gift card!

5 Easy (and Affordable!) Ways to Beat the Winter Blues

Decorating, Decorating Inspiration, Inspiration | | | 1 Reply

Anyone else feel those mid-winter blues this week? January’s half-way point has come and gone, and we’re just starting to realize how much cold weather we have left.

Have no fear — there are some incredibly easy and affordable ways to beat the winter blues until Spring arrives. Take a look at 5 of our favorites!

lemon

1. Eat something sweet and sunny. The bright taste of lemon is an instant pick-me-up. These 27 delicious (and gorgeous) lemony dessert recipes (Hello, warm lemon pudding cake!) are a great place to start. (via Buzzfeed)

ferns

2. Bring a little life into your home. It’s a fact — having a little bit of plant life makes even the dreariest day seem brighter. Create your own indoor jungle with this guide. (via Apartment Therapy)

3. Play with pops of color. Just because it’s dull and gray outside doesn’t mean your home has to match. Paint one bright accent wall in one of your living spaces! Don’t want to paint? Try something temporary and super playful to brighten your mood, like this paint swatch wall! (via Poppytalk)

4. Organize it! Clearing out all of the old junk from last year and starting with a blank slate is a lot of work, but well worth it, considering how it will make spending time indoors that much more enjoyable.  Use these expert tips to organize your home room by room.

5. Treat yourself. Everyone deserves a little luxury! Take an hour to give yourself a little spa treatment — we love this easy avocado face mask. (via Sincerely, Kinsey)
