This Cottage Has Style

Cottage Furniture - Redford House Collection
Finishes available on all Redford House Furniture
Redford House TV Consoles
It’s not often that a signature style can be successfully evolved without losing a sense of itself. But it’s moments like this that remind us why the Cottage Style Furniture Collection is one of our favorites. Several fresh new pieces are introduced with modern flair, and even a few with Asian inspired detailing. A championed departure that keeps the eye interested and the mind at ease knowing the quality of the construction. And best of all our hearts still remain in place as the beloved essence of the collection is alive and well.

Party Ready

Pettiskirts for GirlsFor a little girl the perfect pettiskirt is like a little black dress – a must. And much like a little black dress, a pettiskirt that is not bound to one season is quite the find. Enter the Red Polka Dot Ruffled Petite Pettiskirt. An obvious choice for the holidays with its festive red and playful white dots, but an article that will get a lot of mileage at the end of the day. Multiple holiday parties to attend? Wanna keep this petti looking fresh come Valentine’s Day? Two coordinating tops give your girl stylish options. Who needs that black dress after all?

Not Such A Little House

Little House crib sets are back in a big way – full of life and color. Some of their original fabric patterns are fused with new clean graphics that are sharp and simple. Popular sets such as Pool Sky Khaki and Big Star Blue are reinvented, and soon to be favorites like Blossom and Fleur have arrived in style. Color options have been pared down, and less is certainly more. Little House makes a home.

Winter Wonderland

Pine Cone Hill and Barefoot Dreams Robes
One of the most popular gifts for giving during the holidays is the ever warm and cozy bathrobe. It suits almost all personalities and you can depend on two trustworthy brands to make a quality product in appealing colors – Barefoot Deams and Pine Cone Hill. Neutrals are all the rage this year with black, white and cream, various shades of brown, and even blue becoming a new basic. And gone are the days of bulky unflattering cuts. These brands know how to keep you warm with flattering style that will make anyone’s morning (or evening) routine that much more attractive.

Warming Trend

DwellStudio Warming Trends
Bring on the cold weather – DwellStudio has got you covered! Snuggly sleep sacks, bundle bags, bath wraps, and blankets have arrived in your favorite patterns and a few delightful new ones. Owls, Paper Dolls, Sparrows, and Organic Poppy join the happy family of DwellStudio kids patterns such as the immensely popular Chocolate Dots and Transportation. DwellStudio’s latest additions follow the same tradition of whimsical imagery, but have slightly softer colors for those planning a more subtle nursery scheme. Excellent quality and eco-friendly attributes make these warm and fuzzy pieces heaven for the head and the heart.

Q&A with DeNai Jones

QA - DeNai Jones

We have a very special guest visiting the Layla Grayce blog today. We are pleased to bring you DeNai Jones from Petunia Pickle Bottom reflecting on design and what inspires her most.

I’m happy to be a featured blogger on Layla Grayce, especially since this exceptional website has ties to home. Fellow entrepreneur Tiffany Harris of Layla Grayce and I have known each other since high school. I have been so impressed with the direction and growth of her business and find it to be the site I point people to when they are looking for Petunia products. It has all the style and sophistication a woman wants when looking for a unique gift. Layla Grayce really has the most wonderful selection of things in the world of baby and home decor and the staff is so hospitable and easy to work with we are thankful for our working relationship.

Flora and Fauna

Thomas Paul RugsPicking the right rug for a room is like picking the right paint color – it can have a profound effect. And consequently finding a rug that fits your decor, architecture, and taste in general, can be quite the challenge. Modern rugs abound this season, and yet they have never felt more suited for such a wide audience. The Thomas Paul line of rugs in particular showcases brilliant color and strong patterns that are sure to please. Contemporary color combinations blended with oversized nostalgic floral patterns and playful bird motifs are fluent themes throughout this collection. Say goodbye to the winter blues, these rugs could put a smile on anyone’s face.
