Website of the week
I was saddened recently to read on one of my favorite blogs, Apartment Therapy, that Thomas Paul is discontinuing his line of luxe, graphic decorative pillows. However, the silver lining in this cloud is that the pillows are on sale. At least, they are on the excellent site, which I'm kind of shocked to have not discovered before. So, even though MW has declared a moritorium on decorative pillows, I think I'm going to have to defy that and stock up for our new apartment. The Grid Burst and Large Burst pillows, both by Thomas Paul, will look great in our living room (right now I'm thinking a white, chocolate, and green color scheme); I think the Wheat, Rose, and Geisha would look great in our bedroom (which will be a muted blue and moss green with white accents). But aside from Thomas Paul pillows, PillowsandThrows carries a great selection of, yes, pillows and throws, plus they have fancy bedding from some of my favorite lines, like Dwell, Amenity, and Inhabit. Even more pleasing is some of the random stuff you find while browsing the collections, like this Grass wall art from Inhabit and this awesome pheasant pillow (it's for kids, but, really, who cares?). I kind of love this Pinup pillow from Plush Living, which will look awesome next to the Butterfly and Intersect from the same line. For those who want to add some texture to their decor, there's a line of Mongolian lamb pillows or, even better, mother of pearl pillows. And they have a few lamps, including this Oscar Accent Lamp with Thomas Paul silk shade for a mere $88, perfect for the living room. All orders over $100 ship for free (otherwise, shipping is $7.95), and I fully plan on spending that much--well, as long as I promise MW to get rid of some of my old decorative pillows first.
