WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Plaid Fox

In my opinion it really takes time and effort to find good online home goods stores that are the generic West Elm or Pottery Barn. Don’t get me wrong I do love those places, but sometimes you are wanting something a little bit more original, something a little less expensive, or just something new! The website of the week posts really started so I could keep track of all of the wonderful and amazing home goods online stores in one place. Now I really just can’t wait to share them with everyone! Here is a new one I found just the other week called http://www.PLAIDFOX.com

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

My favorite part about this online home goods story is that you can shop a specific style. If you’re looking for a great industrial piece of furniture you can go straight to industrial, if you’re looking for a great coastal accent for your lake house you can go straight to all the coastal home goods! LOVE.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

It just gets even better, because if you don’t know what your style is, or really don’t know what you’re looking for but want something for your space you can take their “Find Your Style” test and see what would go best with your taste! Here were my results:

They also run an amazing blog called THE DEN with home decorating ideas, recipes, and interviews with artists and designers.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Terrain

In my search for new home goods to post here or to put in my own home, I am ALWAYS looking for new home good stores. I especially love a good online store, since this full-time fiancé and MK product coordinator doesn’t always have the luxury of shopping all day for the latests and greatest home goods. Terrain is a new website I came across the other day while online “shopping” for my latest REINCARNATION: Something Blue.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: BRIKA

I really love the idea of framed prints… I see them all the time on Pinterest or Etsy and I always want to buy myself some! Well I finally bit the bullet and bought some prints (one as a gift… and one for myself!). I got them on this AMAZING website http://www.BRIKA.com

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

This is the print I purchased for my friend... who is expecting! (just to note the prints do not come framed that is a separate cost)

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: A Well Traveled Woman Tumblr

I am always looking for new places to find inspiration. I guess its the fashion-major in me that always wants fresh images for inspiration boards and current projects. Pinterest is always a go-to website but I love finding great new blogs and tumblr accounts linked to Pinterest. Here is a new one for me that I absolutely LOVE. http://AWELLTRAVELEDWOMAN.tumblr.com Here are a some of my favorite images from their new posts…

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Serena & Lily

When art meets business… it is just nothing but magic. That is how this featured company started. This weeks featured website is Serena & Lily!

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.This is an amazing home goods company featuring furniture, bedding, accessories, and more. But the reason I am featuring them [my real obsession with Serena & Lily] is their bedding! My room is my safe haven and I spend most of my time doing homework, eating, sleeping, and blogging from my comfy queen size. So when I found Serena & Lily, their bedding went straight on my wish list!

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

They even have a feature on their website where you can ‘Make Your Own Bed’ where you can mix and match linens and duvets to find the perfect color combination for your own room

Here is what mine looks like:

I just love their duvets with colored trim! and what is better than an aqua and coral combination? really nothing.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: VivaTerra

I decided to do a weekly website feature because I feel like I am always looking on the same home goods websites for inspiration and products [West Elm, Potterybarn, Wayfair, Overstock, etc.] So I wanted to branch out and challenge myself to find new websites or companies that sell great products and a great price. The first one I found is VivaTerra.com! They offer a wide variety of home goods for any room in the house, plus they promote made in the USA products and many of their items are made from recycled products.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

“Our name VivaTerra or living earth is inspired by our dedication to living in harmony with nature – for a healthier life now and for future generations. All of our products reflect a commitment to:

ecology and elegance: The finest goods that uniquely fuse exceptional quality and design with eco sensitivities.

Here are a few [definitely not all] inspiring products that VivaTerra offers on their website:

This is their Tree Of Life bed retailing for around $3000. A serious splurge for this girl on a budget but its so unique it really does seem worth it as a statement piece.
