When I lived in Seattle, we didn’t have a Crate and Barrel store to shop at.  I got their catalog in the mail and ordered lots of kitchen and dinnerware items from them.  I would have given anything to have an actual store that I could have shopped at.

Over the years, Crate and Barrel has landed in just about every major city across America and has developed an incredible product offering, from furniture to cookbooks.

Now that I live in Atlanta, and there are several Crate and Barrel stores nearby, I can’t seem to get to them on a regular basis.  But when I do, I always walk away with a list of items on my “wish list”.   This is what made my “wish list” after a recent visit to their store.

I absolutely love this Driftwood Mirror.  I love how imperfect and artist it is.  Ideal for my beach house (on my wish list too), but for now, I’d hang it as part of a gallery wall of photos and art.

I’m not a big cook, but when I do cook and entertain, I love to set a beautiful table.  This  Gardenia placement is so colorful and fun.  Perfect for an end of summer party don’t your thing?!

I have no blue in my home but I just think this Ginger Blue Side Table is so cute.  I love the shape and the bold color.  I think this would look great as a nightstand or the single punch of color in a neutral room.

Love, Love, Love this chair.  The color combination is subdued yet energetic.  I love the grey mixed with tan and that spice color.  I love this chair so much, I’d design a bedroom around it.

Isn’t this Tonga Wine Cooler beautiful?  While I’m not a big drinker, it would look great as part of a party setting.  I’d be more likely to use it as a flower vase, filled with red and pink tulips.


With Fall fast approaching, I think this Hakkari Hurricane would be a great addition to my decor.  The black finish with pierced leaf design gives it a dramatic feel.  How great would several of these look as part of your Halloween decor?

I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been attracted to daybeds lately.  I love the lines of this Brighton Coffee Daybed and would toss a bunch of colorful pillows on it.  Daybeds are a great seating and sleeping option for kids rooms, and I love to use them in offices that need to double as a guest bedroom. 

My recent trip to Crate and Barrel has definitely made me realized I need to stop in more often.  I love their product mix, prices and in-store displays.  Crate and Barrel is definitely a source of design inspiration for me.


Have you been in a Crate and Barrel lately?  What are some of your favorite items?

p.s.  If you don’t have a Crate and Barrel near you, request the catalog.  It’s the next best thing!

Meet my friend Robyne!

Robyne is the one person I know who loves shopping and uncovering new home decor stores as much as I do.  As someone who travels between Atlanta and Arizona, often by car, Robyne has been known to take 100 mile detours just to see a store she’s read or heard about.  And I love that about her.  She’ll do anything for the cause!

Tomorrow, Robyne will be hitting the road again, where she plans to uncover some of the best home decor store in Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona and California. Along the way, she’ll be snapping photos, gathering information and sharing all the juicy details from the front lines of her road trip shopping adventure.


So stay turned as ConfettiStyle’s gal about the country shares her fabulous finds with us, in a new series call Shopping The World!

If you have any store recommendations, we’d love to know!

If I could personally visit every great home decor and furniture store in America I would, but since miles, money, job, laundry and a host of other things make doing that impossible, I’ll have to visit as many as I can via the web. 

Recently I learned about a wonderful store in Newport Coast, CA called Juxtaposition Home.  I can tell from the store photos alone that this store is awesome.  I love the mix of vintage inspired furnishings, casually upholstered linens and the industrial inspired accessories and mirrors they carry. If  you’re like me and can’t make it to California, here is a small virtual tour of the store. 

I love all the white and natural colors mixed with the bold, black furnishings.  So chic!

And this book display makes my heart go pitter patter.  Seems they adore books as much as I do.

Juxtaposition home carries antique and vintage jewelry in addition to all their home goods.

They carry a wide range of artwork, but the portraits are my favorite.

I want these concrete bowls for my home now.

I can tell that Juxtaposition Home is a store I could easily spend hours in.  I’ve added them to my “dream shopping trip list”, but until then, I’ll admire them from afar.

To learn more about Juxtaposition Home, visit their website , or do a little virtual shopping for some of their great items on 1st Dibs.

Do you have a favorite store you love to shop?
