Garden Ridge review

I found out about a new store here in town and decided to go take look. We only have one in Arizona and it's in Mesa.

Garden Ridge is like Costco but full of homegoods.  The store is done in warehouse style so no pretty displays but they do pack a LOT of stuff into this store. Here are some of the finds I discovered on my trip.

A great taupe colored 7.7 x 9.6 rug for $99!!!!

These rag ottomans would be cute in a kids room or play area!

A versatile queen headboard for $129.98!!

wooden chiavari chairs for $40 a piece

Lots of fabric

large quilts in lots of colors $30 for a Queen or King. 

Lots of pillows, these were great for some texture in your room!

An entry console? Bathroom vanity maybe?? 

I thought these side tables were interesting too!

There are some hit and miss items but it is worth the trip!  Fair warning the tinted front windows make it look like it is dark inside or that they might be closed, the lighting is better once you get inside!

What new to you store have you found lately?

Beach Vacation-Mood Board Monday:John Robshaw Textiles


This time we were inspired by these beautiful textiles from John Robshaw. If you haven't had the chance to look at his textiles please check them out! You are in for a treat!

I chose option #3

Twine Light Indigo 

Bagru Indigo


It was actually a pretty tough choice. However, since I went very colorful with the last moodboard, I decided on a more restrained color pallet inspired by the seaside. I also went for a bedroom this time and I am loving the results!



1. The pallet : creams, whites, yellows, blues and textures. A beige and white grasscloth for the main wall adding some texture and dimension to the room. Sherwin Williams Creamy SW7012 for the rest of the walls

2. The chevron knot rug echos the grasscloth in color and texture but is softened by this fluffy sheepskin rug from Ikea on either side of the bed.

3. I chose the Bagru Indigo for the drapes, bedrunner or duvet cover, and a bolster pillow.

4. I used the other fabric Twine Light Indigo as more of an accent, the leading edge on my drapes, banding on the bolster and trimming the standard sleeping pillow cases.

5. I chose a pair of  26" Navy Deco pillows from Caitlin Wilson Textiles to play off the shapes in the featured fabrics

6. The Grace headboard is a great counterpoint to the geometric shapes in the space and brings in a little femininity.

7. The madeira side tables combine the curves of the headboard and the geometric shape of the fabrics. The darker color relates to the hardwood floors and also helps to ground all the lighter colors in the space.

8. Side tables are topped with the Boule Lamp. The organic shape and whitewashed wood reminds us of driftwood on the beach and brings in a natural element into the space.

9.Bringing a little sparkle to the room are a pair of wilshire sconces  nestled in the curves of the bed for reading lights.

10. Every bedroom needs a place to sit, and the Eddie Chair will help you do that in style. Topped with a pillow from the John Robshaw textiles it links the two main fabrics in the room. Next to the chair is the alu side table  playing off the sparkle from the sconces.


I hope you enjoyed this bedroom and it has given you a few ideas for your own. Please check out the rest of the textile options and moodboards at Pewter and Sage! Pin It

10x 13 rug at ikea?!?

I was doing some blog hopping over the weekend when I found the blog Jilly and Mia. She had been looking for a large natural fiber rug for her living room. (me too!) Everything she had found was either large enough but not a the price she wanted or had a great price but was too small.


At Ikea one day (who doesn't love that store?!?) she stumbled upon Tarnby. But it was only 6x9 feet. What to do....

Glue them together of course!! That is just what she did!



Now she has a beautiful 10x13 jute rug for $300! Not bad Mia, not bad!

I think I need to plan a trip to Ikea ASAP!! How about you?

The Entry...a sneak peek to your home

The entry of your home is the first place that your guests see. It gives them a preview to the rest of your home and, most importantly, should tell a story about the people that live there.

As you recall I have this entry table, scored at a discount from Home Goods!


I am still working on my entry (which is open to my living and dining room) But I thought I would show you some inspiration photos.

White Ice vs Stainless

Have you heard about the new gal on the market? Whirlpool brand has introduced the ice collection.




The White Ice appliances were featured in House Beautiful magazine's 5th annual Kitchen of the Year at Rockefeller Plaza July 16-July 20th in a 1,000-square-foot kitchen conservatory designed by Mick de Giulio.

From what I can tell the pieces look to be sleeker and have a smooth glass appearance rather than the current plastic feel of the black and white appliances we had before.

They look to fit in traditional kitchens



And in contemporary kitchens




What do you think? 

It has been said that a "trend" lasts only about 10 years. Do you think stainless steel appliances have surpassed trend into classic? Or are stainless steel appliances out the door?
