weekly wrap up + brie harrison pillows + lavish!

Whew! It has been a crazy week full of holiday projects and gift guides and tonight, Amy and I are hopping on a plane to Atlanta to speak at this weekend’s Lavish conference (our panels are at 11am on Saturday and 9am Sunday). I hope we run into some of you down there! We’ll also be in Savannah after the conference for a quick trip so if you’re in town this weekend, say hi on Twitter and we’ll see if anyone’s up for a little night out or a drinks meet-up. But before I drive to my own personal hell (otherwise know as LaGuardia Airport), I wanted to wrap up the week with something cheery and bright: Brie Harrison’s new pillow line!

We first met Brie back in 2008 when we got a tour of her lovely London home. I’ve been following her textile design work ever since and was excited to hear that she has launched a new collection! Brie’s new series includes cushions in three new patterns: Daffodil, Folk Flower and Vintage Rose. They’re a perfect combination of retro and modern so if you’re looking for something to brighten up a cold winter day, these are just the ticket. Click here for more information and to shop ($85 each) online.

I’m heading off to the airport, so I’ll see you back here on Monday with AC’s thirdannualGift Guide for Guys!” xo, grace

    Love these prints but cannot afford the price of the pillows. Any chance to buy the material by the yard and make myself? Will this make it less pricy?
