Pom Pom Anyone?

I’ve been seeing a lot of these pom pom curtain panels over the past year. Such a fun way to add a feminine feeling to a room; a little touch of the bohemian life.

I spotted them in this fabulous nursery by Kristin over at the Hunted Interior. (Note the screen she has behind the crib is the same one from World Market that I used as a headboard in my guest room.)

Or, check out this big girl room from blog Chris Loves Julia (I adore the blanket at the end of the bed!)

Sarah Richardson is also a fan of the pom pom curtain…

PB Teen currently carries these blackout versions (blackout a MUST for kids’ rooms in my opinion!)

Pottery Barn Teen

Restoration Hardware baby & child also has some that come with a matching valence–a little more formal, traditional look than the bohemian PB Teen ones.

RH Baby & Child

Serena & Lily also has them in all different colors

But, pom pom trimmed drapery does not have to be limited to a child’s room…

I love how Elizabeth over at Little Black Door also used darker versions to add a touch of whimsy to her living room

And here’s another great example of how they can look chic and grown up

These are also a great DIY project. Type “pom pom curtain” into Pinterest and you’ll find lots of options for tutorials and inspiration shots like this one from blog Stacy + Charlie‘s bedroom reveal.

Pantone Color of the Year

Well, folks it’s been announced….not sure I’m thrilled about using it all over the room but definitely as an accent color.



So if you’re like me and can only see decorating with this color through pops in a room, here are a few inspiration shots:

Yes, this color is splashed all over the walls but doesn’t it look great with the gold frames????


Enjoy the weekend!

Get It While It’s Hot: Cameroon Headdresses

I’m obsessed with these feather headdresses from the Cameroon. MUST get one. Known as JuJu hats, these are traditionally by royal dancers of the Bamileke tribe and symbolize wealth. From a purely shallow design perspective, they’re an amazing way to add a pop of color and texture to any room!

How cool does this white one look against the linen colored grasscloth wallpaper?

The pop of red really distracts you from the TV on the shelf below it


How gorgeous is this dining room–that orange JuJu against the grey walls is delicious!!

The ones I’ve seen are dyed chicken feathers. There are vintage ones available, but you’d be looking at much higher costs. A new one is around $400-$700. So fun and pretty.
