If we could afford to have our entire home decorated by Pottery Barn, we probably wouldn't be opposed. But we're young and love to travel, so we put our money in that direction for now. And the reality is, I shop too much to place all of my eggs in one basket - I love mixing pieces from different places and I'm pretty good at finding expensive pieces for less. That doesn't mean I don't indulge in a PB Sale every now and then, or still consider them as one of my favorite stores when searching for something for our home, because, they are. Our bedding is from there and I love it!
    Shag is back, and I am in heaven. Wool shag rug, wool shag throw, and my new favorite shaggy faux-fur pillows! The pillows were from Pottery Barn and, surprisingly, they were way less expensive than any other store!:

Look for Less

    I am obsessed with the big, fluffy, faux-fur pillows - but the prices, not so much! I was shocked to see that Pottery Barn's regular pricing was way less, and I got them at the Sale price! Luckily I already had pillow inserts so I don't need to purchase the inserts, but even if I had to, the Pottery Barn complete set of pillow + cover would still be less than just a cover anywhere else! The PB pillows are faux-fur as opposed to 'Mongolian Lamb' but they achieve the same great look and are still soft!

Trees. Lots of Trees.
Create your own Winter Wonderland Forrest! I created ours in our non-functioning fire place using a white bath mat and trees. This was very last-minute but I plan to use a larger white base in the future and adding a few small LED candles in between to light it up a bit more!
