A Few of My Favorite Things

I love a comfy home and with three children under the age of 15, it’s necessary. Here are a few of my favorite home stores that I look to for inspiration.

What’s your favorite store?

Pottery Barn

I have been a ‘Pottery Barn-er’ for over 20 years.  Did you know that in 1949, they opened their first brick-and-mortar store Chelsea, New York selling slightly imperfect pottery and table top closeout. They are also a company that celebrate women. More than half of their executive team are women!

I bought the leather ottoman, pictured below, about 6 years ago and it’s still just as nice as it was when I first bought it.

They are a brand true to themselves and don’t try to be something they are not. Classic, timeless with a flair for fun!

Their values: “We’re a brand for real people, real lives and real homes.”

I literally get lost every time I walk through the doors of this store. My HomeGoods is one of the best around and I could spend hours walking around (and I have).

“HomeGoods stores offer an ever-changing selection of unique home fashions in kitchen essentials, rugs, lighting, bedding, bath, furniture and more all at up to 60% off department and specialty store prices every day.”

Pier 1 

Another one of favorite for years! Pier 1 just gets it and with their addition of Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines I could not be happier!

Pier 1 is fun and colorful with a mix of classic furniture, tableware, lighting and decor from some of the world’s most gifted artisans.

“We’re all about presenting new ways of seeing and experiencing your home. Our furnishings, rugs, art and scented candles are created to spark your imagination, present inventive solutions and reveal more possibilities than you ever thought possible.”

Magnolia Home 

How could I not include Magnolia Homes! Joanna Gaines is an inspiration to me. I love her overall laid back, classic style!

“Joanna has thoughtfully designed each piece of the Magnolia Home line with family, aesthetic and practicality in mind.  Her approach to design marries function and utility with the perfect level of relaxed sophistication.”

 “home. it’s your story. tell it.”
