Pom Poms | The Pursuit of Style

Tory Burch Reva Scarf | Furbish Maira Kalman Quote | Mimosa Lane Pouch | Home & Tribe Pom Pom Pillows | Tory Burch Pom Pom and Resin Necklace

Pom poms are back! Ever since spotting this Maira Kalman quote among the new arrivals at Furbish I’ve been noticing pom poms everywhere. Definitely not a complaint because I happen to think they’re pretty great in their own playful way.

I’d love to see these pillows in a children’s room and think this necklace is gorgeous if you’re willing to go bold. If you prefer your poms a little more subtle visit Albertina’s etsy shop for adorable pom pom pouches or check out this Serena & Lilly throw.

Love them or hate them, you have to admit everything looks a little more festive when pom poms are involved!



Leave it to Jamie Meares to have stationery so fabulous it inspires its own post! The monogrammed headdress notecard that accompanied my surprise package from Furbish (talk about a good mail day!) stopped me in my tracks and set my mind spinning.

A quick glance through my inspiration files and I realized I’ve been hoarding quite a few images of Native American inspired art. The Fritz Scholder painting is by far my favorite. Can you imagine what an impact that hot pink canvas would make in a room? I’d love to see it done. Thanks again to Jamie for always being a source of inspiration!


As if a Glitter Guide feature with one of my design icons, Jamie Meares, wasn’t enough (still dying over that tortoise cabinet), imagine my surprise to read the quote below…

What are your sources of design inspiration on the web?
I practically live on the internet—blogs, Pinterest, Instagram—my daily reads include Anna Spiros’ blog Absolutely Beautiful Things, Saavy Home, Amber Interiors, The Aestate, and The Pursuit of Style. I’m so inspired by this up and coming round of fresh taste makers, it’s so fun to watch them put trends into their own context.

Smiling from ear to ear immediately commenced and was quickly followed by a string of exclamation mark littered sentences emailedto my boyfriend with a link to the article giddily explaining how it was a such big deal to me because I admire Jamie so much.

The long and short of it is this: Jamie and her team are crazy talented and we should all make a pilgrimage to Furbish.

Who’s coming with me?


I always look forward to reading the holiday gift guides in my favorite glossies (and now online mags and blogs too!) so I’ve decided to get in on the fun! This week, I’ll be sharing a selection of gifts I’d be happy to give and receive. First up, a collection of seriously stylish accessories for the home…
A pair of Pieces Blue Elephants  (1) or an Oomph Tini Table (2) to rest a book and a cocktail.  Iomoi Matches (3) to light a roaring fire or a delicious Diptyque Candle (11). Carthage Lantern (4) for a bit of chinoiserie flair, Kate Spade Camelia Avenue Vase (8) for blooms, and a touch of zebra for the coffee table Furbish Ottoman Tray (5). Deck the walls with a Hugo Guinness ‘Beautiful’ Print (9) or  
 Mariska Meijers ‘Graphic Blossom’ (10), the couch with a Turquoise Pom Pom Blanket and Calypso Leopard Pillow, and set the table with a punch of color Pomegranate Inc. Raffia Placemats (13). Then, after a night of celebrating, snuggle up in block printed John Robshaw Bedding (7).

I hope you enjoyed the first gift guide, there are many more to come!
