Swoon Of The Week: Textiles For Miles

File this under “sometimes you just have to splurge.” We know we’ve promised you guys steals and deals, but when we came across Designers Guild, we fell head over heels in love with their rich materials, uncompromised quality and showstopping pieces. And before we knew it we’d ordered not one, not two, but three magnificent items for our ever-evolving third bedroom. So of course we’ll stick to passing along every $14 lamp and $12 vase that we sleuth out (that’s a promise!) but sometimes there’s nothing like a high-end piece (or three) to elevate the entire look of a room- and make you smile every time you see it in your home.

Here’s a reminder shot of the third bedroom before our little shopping spree. Simple and sweet, but nothing too memorable in the way of bedding:

And here’s an after shot of our brand-spankin’-new duvet cover. We love how it the neutral pattern works with our striped jute rug, and we adore the pops of turquoise and lime (two of our favorite accent colors) which add a whole lot more of that certain “je ne sais quoi” factor that we were going for:

But we couldn’t just stop there. Not a chance (once you visit their website you’ll see why- you can seriously spend hours there). So we also snagged this lambswool throw. We’ve never really had one of those luxurious throws made of sumptuous materials, and we thought it was high time we snatched one up in tones that perfectly complemented our new bedding. And that fringe makes me smile every time I walk by the room.

And because three is always a better number than two, we also had to have this 18×24 inch reversible pillow, which looks fantastic with all the subtle neutral patterns going on in our daybed…

… but also looks great on our slipper chair in the living room. A pillow this stunning shouldn’t stay in one place anyway, so we’re psyched to have discovered at least two places to gaze at it when we’re passing through each room.

Steals and deals definitely have a place in every home, but it’s really nice to think about all the money that you’ve saved (say on the rug and the lighting) and put it towards something amazing like a great accent piece that looks like a million bucks. This entire shopping experience has reminded us that there’s nothing quite like a special accessory (or three) to refresh your entire home and make it suddenly feel about 98% more decadent and fabulous.

And who says something gorgeously crafted can’t also be a bit of a steal? We convinced the amazing people over at Designers Guild to offer up an exclusive deal to Young House Love readers. Cha-ching! To score 10% your order, just enter the discount code “young” when you’re checking out. And be sure to send us pics of your gorgeous new swag so we can live vicariously through all of you guys!

    LOVE the duvet cover!

    I am a new reader, so forgive me if you have covered this already – where is your slipper chair from? I love it!

    Darling choices! You’re right, saving on the everyday stuff makes splurging every now and then SO much more of a treat! Quick and random question: what is the color of paint in your kitchen, and is it the same as in your master bedroom? We are doing some major painting and I am having the hardest time finding paints that look the same on the wall as they do on the paint chip, so when I see something I like already applied, I simply have to ask! Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Great finds! Quite pricey but cute! Especially like the throw ($225, yikes! A girl can dream…). Where did you find the other pillows in pic #3?

    Hey everyone,

    So glad you’re loving Designers Guild as much as we are. Don’t forget to send us pictures of any and all swag that you snag so we can see it in all its glory!

    Oh and as for the sources of a few of our other items, the living room slipper chair (we also have one in the den) is from Target. It’s called the Dolce Chair and it’s a great deal- love the linen-like fabric and the deep espresso legs. The other pillows in that close up shot of our beloved new pillow are from Bed Bath & Beyond (on sale for around $20). We were just there last night and saw a few of them left so if you hurry I bet you can hunt a few down.

    Oh and as for the textiles in our “wish list”, well what can we say? So many duvets, so little time. Our wish list isn’t necessarily a shopping list of our own- at least that’s what I promised my husband. Lol. It’s really more like a collection of inspirational items that we want to share with the world (and just might end up purchasing someday) so stay tuned to see what we snatch up and what we adore but just can’t find a space for in our tiny rancher!
