I’m sure I’m not alone in my love for the Pottery Barn catalog and everything in it. There have been seasons when we’ve had to pinch every penny to get by and, even then, I loved picking up the Pottery Barn catalog. I knew I couldn’t buy anything, but I was always inspired and got tons of ideas for all things home…like color combinations, designs and textures.
So, when I was asked to partner with Pottery Barn and show off some of the pieces in their fall collection, I was happy to participate!
These are the things I picked out…
You know I love blue, so, of course, I gravitated immediately to the Indigo Knit Throw.
It’s as comfy as it looks – just like a thick cable knit sweater. I like to snuggle up on the sofa when I’m pecking away on my computer late at night, so this throw lives on our family room ottoman, ready for that snuggle.
It looks amazing against the white furniture and blue and white rug.
I also picked out the Antique Silver Flatware. Between picking it out and receiving my box of goodies (the contents were unknown to me until I got it), I grew more and more in love with this set. I have had the same flatware since we got married…just something inexpensive. I never even looked for another set, but now that I saw this one… well, I was smitten. I kept looking at it every day, thinking about it, trying to decide if it was worth the splurge. I had a conversation with my mom about it and she pointed out how many photo shoots I do and how much she has enjoyed her nice silverware she purchased years ago. That was enough for me. (Enabler!) I went online and purchased a set while they were on sale.
A few days later, I received my order as well as the box of goodies from Pottery Barn with another set! And I’ve been stalking their e-mail newsletter and finally got a code for 20% off one item, including sale items, so I bought a third set. I can now have a dinner party for twelve with all of my oval back French chairs and silverware! (There’s definitely a lot of my Oma in me. If one set is good than three sets is better.)
I love how the handles are different, so it looks like it’s been collected over time.
The silver plating looks perfectly aged and worn like the pieces have been handed down as an heirloom.
The only “warning” I would give about this set is that the scale is very large. I bet these spoons have a good two inches on my old spoons, so they have taken some getting used to. I love them nonetheless.
I also got these ruffled linen napkins…
They are the perfect mix of casual and classy.
I tucked them into mismatched vintage silver napkin rings for this table setting.
The natural linen is so pretty against the ironstone plates.
The last item I received was the Cozy Cable Throw, which has been officially been named “mommy’s blanket.” Oh my goodness. In this snuggly blanket, you get the comfy-ness of faux sheepskin with the classic look of cable knit. Usually comfy blankets don’t look the best and pretty blankets aren’t very comfy. This blanket breaks that stereotype. And I love it.
