 I received the new Pottery Barn Teen catalog in the mail the other day and boy was I surprised to see so many stylish pieces that are not only great for teen spaces but would be great for decorating adult spaces too.  Here are my favorite finds, along with why I think each item is great and how I’d use each piece when decorating.   Enjoy!

I love the look of a bed that has been dressed in layers which requires a set of stylish sheets.
Usually my first stop for patterned sheet sets is HomeGoods but recently I started shopping Pottery Barn Teen for bedding. Because I don’t have kids, I never really considered PB Teen a source for adult bedding but after seeing all of their new collections, I’ve changed my mind.
Metallic Dot / Rings / Urban Ikat / Ikat Dot
Not only does PB Teen has a wonderful range sheet patterns, but many of their styles are also available in duvet covers.
PB Teen Ikat Dot Duvet
Ikat Dot
You know I love black and white so this look is right on target for me.
PB Teen Florette Bedding
All of the styles above are from the girl’s collection but I also found several sheet sets in the boy’s collection that I love.

These plaids are right on trend for fall and winter and could easily be mixed with the dots and ikat patterns to create a really eclectic look.
Field House
Cascade Plaid
This grouping of plaids is probably my favorite because of the crisp pattern detail.
The next time you’re shopping for sheets, make sure to stop by PB Teen.  You’ll be surprised at what they have to offer.

Happy Saturday!

Closet Couture

Taking inspiration from this photo, I’m spending the weekend finishing up all the organizing that’s been going on at my place.  One of the areas I’m hitting this weekend is m closet.   I have lots of folding, stacking and purging ahead of me.  While I’m busy working it all out, here are a few great reads and bits of info you’ll want to check out.


One of my goals this year is to strengthen the presence and message of my blog. If you are a blogger and have the same goal, this article outlining 58 Tips for Transforming Your Blog is full of invaluable information that will help you do just that.
If you haven’t already discovered the new Vine app you’ll definitely want to check it out.  This cool app allows you to record a short 6 second videos with ease (no editing required – you just hold down the screen to record a new clip and it ties them all together in the end) and then you share them to your feed just like Instagram.  I think Instagram is cool but I am really loving this new app.  You can follow me @ConfettiStyle.  Leave me a link to your Vine and I’ll be sure to follow you back.
Pottery Barn has a new blog called Inside and Out and I think it’s pretty cool.  Not only do they share inspiration images and information about their products but the site also showcases readers homes, weddings and events.  And there is a section called Tips & Tricks where they share how-to tips on entertaining, decorating, DIYing and more.
February is Heart Health Month and I hope that every woman reading my blog takes the time to read this article on What Every Woman Should Know About Heart Health.
Boy was I inspired by the latest issue of Adore Magazine.  Be sure to check out the color article on page 78.

Now that November is here, I’ve started to put lots of thought into my Christmas decor, gifts and all the stuff that comes with the holiday.  Originally I had planned to decorated in traditional red and green, but have decided to go with more of a vintage look.

Here are the makings of my Christmas!

I’ve got lot of DIY and craft projects to complete before the decorating begins and will be sure to share it all with you. Stay tuned!

Have you started thinking about your Christmas decor?


p.s.  We are lucky enough to have the largest Pottery Barn in the world here in Atlanta , and last night I took a spin through the store.  WOW is all I have to say! The store is decorated and there are lots of fabulous ideas to inspire you.  Make sure to check out your local Pottery Barn this season.

As seen during Spring and Summer runway shows, denim is a hot fabric trend in the fashion circuit.  While that may not seem unusual, given that denim is a staple in just about everyone’s wardrobe, denim as a new, hot  fabric trend in the home furnishings industry is what is taking people off guard.

Years ago, it was not unusual to see denim sofas as part of a “French Country” or “Shabby Chic” decor, but then just like so many other trends, the use of denim diminished and went by the way-side.  Well, its 2010 and like the saying goes, “what goes around, comes around.”

Denim is back, and back in a refreshing and exciting way!

 While blue denim is the most popular choice of denim colors,  the base fabric can be dyed into just about any color you want!

The Samantha Chair from Specific Merchandise offers a new, refreshing look for denim.  I love the natural colored fibers and the red and black trim detail they’ve added. 

Denim isn’t just for jeans anymore!
