This weekend my girlfriend Melanie and I went window shopping in just about every home store in the Northern Virginia vicinity. I am so excited for the spring collections popping up.
Here are a couple spring items we loved:
West Elm has a huge collection of sea-colored glass bottles
Arlington sofa at Potterybarn in Flax Textured Basketweave (of course the most expensive fabric grade!?). The texture on this linen is absolutely stunning, and the flax color is the perfect stone/cream...not too brown, not too gray...let the saving start.
Ascot arm chair. It is shaped like a gentleman's club chair but the feminine fabric makes it unexpectedly beautiful!
Blue Floral pillow. I can't decide if it's too Laura Ashley grandma, or modern spring floral??? I don't know if I should like it...but I do :) These might perfectly replace my red couch pillows for spring. I think I will pass on the monogrammed...that might be pushing it!
faux spiny branch coral.
This $7 lobster plate (on my newly sprayed black table) is going on my bar, once I buy a standing plate holder...this plate has a really cool Nantucket trading company stamp on the back.
Anthropologie, not a thrift store, but they do sell vintage pieces...and at $8 it's just as good of a find!
