Kitchen Counter Stools & Bedding Decisions

Serena & Lily is currently having a 20% off sale through tomorrow – which is forcing me to make a kitchen island bar/counter stool decision.  I love the look of french bistro stools/chairs, here are a couple of my favorites:



I think the Riviera Counter Stool at S&L hits the nail on the head as far as what I’m looking for.


I was thinking of waiting until our new island is in place but with this sale and the fact that S&L often runs out of stock quickly I think this is a sign I should pull the plug and get to buying…  now I just need to figure out how many I need!?

Speaking of Serena & Lily and discounts I recently had a coral headboard made in Schumachers Chenonceau for our guest room that DESPERATELY needs bedding.


The walls are a standard grasscloth with light blue linen window panels so I was thinking the bedding should be neutral (below is an image of my inspiration).


Maybe something like this from S&L with white duvet:


Or even Restoration Hardware’s Italian Hotel Satin Stitch bedding line in Shore with coordinating duvet (RH is also having a 20% off sale):


Decisions decisions!

On a different note – as mentioned in my bio I am what my husband refers to as a “nutritional hobbyist” (or completely obsessed with health and nutrition – especially the homeopathic variety).  I’ve always been a firm believer in the benefits of probiotics and found Michael Pollan’s NYT Magazine article today “Some of My Best Friends Are Germs” fascinating.  If you are interested you can read here.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
