Introducing: 4 NEW Christmas Themes, from Us to You

Every holiday season is a chance to reinvent what Christmas looks like for you. This year, our Home for the Holidays collection includes decorative items in four beautiful themes, from more traditional looks to something a bit more modern. So put on some Christmas music, grab a hot cocoa, and get ready for some major inspiration.

Sprays of berries, polka dot stockings, and Santa himself come to life in this timeless color palette. Red and white decor brings back memories of poinsettias and bright red bows, of candy canes and cranberry dishes. Updated but classic, these pieces are nostalgic in all the right ways.

Shop Traditional Red & White

Smell the salt air and hear the waves crashing against the rocks with this oceanside-inspired decor. From sand dollars and seashells to jellyfish and mermaids, the underwater world is chic and charming on stockings, tree trimmings, and even ol’ Saint Nick. Let your imagination set sail!

Shop Coastal Cyan & Sand

Explore the ancient traditions of blue and white pottery, which originated in the Middle East and grew in popularity in China and Europe. Intricately painted designs stand vibrantly against clean white backgrounds on everything from vases and urns to ornaments and cocktail napkins. It’s the perfectly cool color palette for the winter season.

Shop Old World Blue & White

Forest creatures, rustic pines, and earthy tones create a cozy, nature-inspired Christmas. Invite wooden reindeer and painted mountain scenes inside, while displaying a Santa ready to traverse a snowy, winter path. Greens, browns, and whites take centerstage in this remote cabin wonderland.

Shop Woodland Green & White

Our Top Three Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you're planning on taking your gift to the next level this year, we're here to talk inspiration. We're sharing our top three gift ideas to ensure mom feels the love this year!

1. Monogrammed Mementos

Our monogram program gives you a chance to personalize pillow covers and tabletop decor in many different lettering styles.

Adding a personal touch to our popular European Flax Linen Pillow collection is guaranteed to make mom smile! (A tip from our Creative Director: use personalized pillows or dinner napkins at your next dinner party as place setters that double as takeaway gifts for your guests!)

2. Fresh Flowers With A Twist

You can always schedule a delivery of fresh flowers, but if we're taking it up a notch this year, why not try including a vibrant vase for mom to reuse after Mother's Day as a statement decorative piece?

Blue and white pottery is always a winner, as we've seen this charming collection pair perfectly with flowers of every color - pink, orange, purple, blue, white, and red, among others.

If you're ready to venture out to a new style of pottery, try our Peony Urn with flowers that are popping with every shade of pink!

3. Coffee Table Book Signed By The Author

Who doesn't love a gorgeous coffee table book? If you're looking to go the extra mile on this gift, you can have the author personalize the book for mom!

There's no better time than now because we're hosting an Evening Celebrating Southern Design on Tuesday, May 1st at our Dallas Inwood Village store, including authors Bobby McAlpine with Poetry of Place, Lisa Newsom with Veranda: The Art of Outdoor Living, and Rebecca Vizard with Once Upon A Pillow: A Story of Home, Design, and Exquisite Textiles.
