The Neutral Newlyweds

neutral newlyweds

The Neutral Newlyweds is a Polyvore set that I created around some matching pillows from one of my Zazzle stores:

His & Hers Pillows “His”

His & Hers Pillows “Hers”

I always liked these pillows because they were sleek and understated, but still fun.

They nicely accent other neutrals, so I surrounded them with elegant furnishings in brown, white, and silver.

I’d love to hear your feedback!

My Favorite New Starbucks Coffee Mugs

I am totally crushing on some of the newest Starbucks coffee mugs.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, tho I know I just don’t have room in my kitchen for every coffee mug I find that I love.

*sigh*

The struggles of a coffee addict.

But, between my recent sinus infection and stomach bug, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands to sit around and stare at things.  Like these mugs.

Anyway, here are my top three:

Casi Cielo Mug, 12 fl oz

Inspirational Espresso Mug, 3 fl oz (Reads: Every sip has a sweet ending.)

Inspirational Brewed Mug, 16 fl oz (Reads: Fresh-brewed inspiration for the day ahead.)

I think these three caught my eye because I’m such a lover of words and textures.  And white.  I love how white plays off of other colors, sometimes blending in and sometimes starkly standing out.

There’s a lot I like about these mugs, but I want to know which are your favorites.  If you could pick one of these to add to your collection, which would it be?

Ice

Ice

My latest collage on Polyvore is a simple, understated bohemian look I titled Ice.

I can see myself curled up and cozy in this tattered snowflake sweater, offset by the color of my well-worn jeans, the infinity scarf hanging loosely off of one shoulder, the metal finger cuffs cool against my warm skin.

…sweater weather = love…

Shake Me

Alice in Wonderland Salt and Pepper Shakers

These were just too cute – I couldn’t help sharing!

And I don’t normally say that about salt and pepper shakers.  In fact, I have a very volatile relationship with them.  I have yet to find a set I like.

These, however, I find tempting.

So sleek (I’ve been on a monochromatic kick lately) and yet so playful.

I could welcome a bit of Wonderland to my table in the form of these porcelain utensils.

Check them out at DIGS.

Owl Reading in Blue and White Room

Owl Reading in Blue & White Room

Okay, the owl is actually a doorstop and not a pillow, but I liked how comfy he looked on the couch.

While designing this room on Polyvore, I was thinking of my favorite decorating colors:  white and light blue.  They calm me.  They make me happy.

And owls and books and fluffy pillows and soft blankets make me happy.

Not that I’d actually be able to read a vintage French paperback, but I could hold it in my arms, feel the delicate pages with my fingers, and fall asleep with it on my chest as its gentle scent cascaded through my dreams.

That would make me happy, too.
