Now, for today's topic I decided that I need to share with you all that I am a wee bit obsessed with Pottery Barn.
Do you remember the Friends episode, when Rachel was living with Phoebe and she bought an apothecary table from Pottery Barn? Monica warns her that Phoebe hates mass-produced products and anything that does not have a history. In order to keep the table Rachel pretends to have bought it at a flea market, so Phoebe will think it's an antique. Eventually, Rachel ends up buying a lot of home decor from Pottery Barn, still lying about where they were all purchased. When Phoebe finds out Rachel has been lying she admits she likes the Pottery Barn furniture and doesn't want to part with it. Then when Phoebe notices a lamp at Pottery Barn, which is the one thing Rachel hadn't bought, she intentionally coerces Rachel to move out if she does not buy that lamp.
That episode remains one of my favorites, and was my first introduction to all things Pottery Barn.
And I think of it every time I see this little beauty in my mailbox.
I drop everything and open it up right away and flip through it.
Then I set it aside and wait for my kids to go to bed so I can really take my time pouring through the pages. I will finish all my chores for the night and then settle down with my comfy pillows and blankets so I can really focus.
I make mental lists and dog-ear pages when I see something I like.
And laugh when I see thing that I have in my own home...that are NOT PB!
My vintage copper strainers-turned-mirrors; a gift from a friend:
Pottery Barn European Salt Canister (can't find it online):
My authentic ceramic salt canister from Germany:
There is lots of inspiration in these pages, things I want to make, things I want to buy (but can't afford), and things that make me swoon.
I am obsessed, really.
Bonus, I realized there is a 10% off coupon on the back (yipee) so maybe I will have to pull a Rachel and go buy me something. What do ya think?
I'll be sure to let you know...
What's your decor
