Friday Fun Stuff…Christmas Gifts for the Design Obsessed and a Milieu Subscription Giveaway

This would be the ultimate Christmas gift in my mind.  Pamela Pierce is running a special for subscribers, buy two gift subscriptions and receive one for free.  If that isn’t enough she is also running a contest now through March 15th to win a room in your home designed by Pam herself.   I have to be honest there are very few that I would trust to decorate a room in my home but I would have no problem with this one!! Go here to enter and subscribe, or see below for a chance to win your own subscription!

RH has their oversized faux fur throws on sale right now for $199 and their regular sized throws for $79

There are so many great design books out there right now but here are a few of my favorites.

Love these chargers from PB that we used on the table for Berries and Branches.  I was sooo tempted to purchase these for myself.  They have a great aged pewter look that would work with any décor style.

All of the design books listed can be purchased on Amazon or better yet at your local independent book store.  You can get the complete list of my favorites go here

  2. I just love your taste. Went to PB and saw the chargers…if I just had more storage space! I like that they are light weight. I would love to win a subscription. People may think it was rigged though :) I'm going to your Facebook page now.

  3. Hope this finds you safe and dry - what a storm we are having, non? Love, love, love the cover of Milieu - never seen the magazine before - looks California-ishy?!? Take care and take your umbrella!

  4. You have 3 of my favorite books noted! Great picks!!

  5. Great suggestions! Seriously debating one of those cashmere throws! Loved what you did styling that Christmas show house in an earlier post! So pretty! Barbara P from Ma ( That Mileu subscription - what a wonderful giveaway! Adore Everything Pam Pierce has done that I've seen!

  7. I purchased one of the RH exotic faux fur throws. SOOOO cozy. Makes a great gift. Weighs 10 lbs!

    1. Laurie...that is so funny that you said that. I was just trying to decide if a friend who is ill could handle all that weight! Thank you for reminding me that I best get the smaller one!!
