signature stripe


It dawned on me tonight that some things we own really stick around for the long haul. See that striped pillow? It's ( well, 2 of them, you just can't see the other ) been with us for 7 years. The year we were married we moved to Vancouver BC. We actually went house hunting right after our gift opening..and a long drive :) Anyway, the pillows were purchased when I was working at Pottery Barn on Granville Street. What fun my first foray into PB life was. Anyway, boy I'm getting side tracked alot- the pillows. Started out on a navy sofa. Still in my living room 7 years later. They have been replaced + put away, but they always come back. They still work, and I still love them.

Stripes really are timeless aren't they? I don't have many things that stick around for the long haul, which just shows how little I knew/know about design! Have a great weekend..Rachaelxx

Stripes are fantastic. I love your wall treatment and the mirror as well. Everything looks very nice together.

The pillows are great and PB stuff never really seems to date - it's all just great classic pieces! : )

lol. No kidding. That is just crazy!
I have the exact same striped pillows from PB. Too funny. We have been married almost 10years but I think I too have had them about 7 years on my same blue sofa. (you have great taste) SMILE

pillows are great to boost some new vibes into your interior. even if they are old. it is the same with fashion. good things always come back!

It's great when we can reuse what we already have and especially good when there are memories that go along with it. Have a wonderful day!

Nothing like a good stripey cushion! I have some things that I've had forever and still love.
btw, I'm thoroughly enjoying catching up with your blog...it's been bonkers busy.

Stripes are timeless. Whenever I see them I want to buy them. In clothes, furniture, homewares, anything stripes I adore.

I hope that a few of our things are still with us and are still much loved in seven years time!
