Sunflower Inspired Decor

The other day, I was “on the hunt” for a new pillow for the great room.

I really did not have anything in mind . . . other than it had to coordinate with a gold throw.

The pillow is crewel work of a pretty gold and brown flower . . .

~ ~ it reminded me of the colors of sunflowers.

Found the throw at HomeGoods too . . it has a “furry” texture on one side . . .

~ ~ and a velvet texture on the other side.

After I left HomeGoods, I went directly to Trader Joe’s to purchase some sunflowers.

I grabbed my red transferware pitcher that I purchased on my France trip and arranged the flowers.

My newly purchased ironstone tureen (my Pennsylvania deal) holds red apples for added color to the table.

I changed out the garden stool that stood beside the chair and added the French Wine Picnic Basket . . .

Springtime in the Master Bedroom

The snow on the ground is almost melted . .

So on to taking off the “Winter Birds” bedding and adding happy flowers to the room.

The duvet cover and shams are Vanessa by Pottery Barn ~

~ ~ Euros and accent pillow are also Pottery Barn.

~ ~ ~ ~ the two “harlequin design” pillows are by Linda, Kristen’s mom.

The Vanessa bedding was formerly in the 2nd guest/craft room . . .

~ ~ where my cozy sitting area is now.

Orchids from my granddaughter for Valentine’s Day . . 🙂

And my favorite faux silk yellow roses in a Greenbrier Resort Mint Julep cup . .

~ ~ an Anniversary souvenir.

Still more things to do in this room . . .

~ ~ like painting the area between the bedroom and the master bath.

And here is another “French Treasure”…a red Transferware pitcher.
