Uniquely Yours

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good monogram. When I say “anyone,” I’m referring to male or female, southern or northern, east coasters, west coasters and all that falls in between- a pretty touch of personalization on our belongings makes us feel good (and special!) My favorite personalized gem of the moment would be this Land’s End tote my friend Leslie and I picked up last summer in the Hamptons…everywhere I go, this goes. When it comes to monograms and interior design, we’ve seen our fair share of custom-made pillows, shams, sheets, and duvets.  Just to make it clear: these never get old to us. I will never walk into a room and not gasp with delight at the sight of monogrammed linens.  The right monogram can bring a room to life and add a specialized touch. Here are some fresh ideas we found to inspire you in your decorating quests… Personalization moves to the formal areas of the home with monogrammed dining room chair cushions.

While looking for unusual takes, I found this monogrammed valence - what do you think? Is this bordering on excessive? There’s an old adage that you can’t ever have enough monogrammed items…but as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts! The possibilities for personalization are truly endless, especially when you break from the traditional and embark on decorating ideas apart from those habitually associated with the bedroom and bathroom. And to close, I couldn’t depart without including some of our monogrammed linens in Parish.

How fun are these for a playful touch in the bathroom? 'Til next time,
