Monogrammed Sham

I’ve been searching for just the right photo to send my family member who’s monogramming our new bedroom shams – remember this pic?

Well, I think I found it. In the May issue of Better Homes and Gardens, a blogger named Erin was featured. And her home is adorable. She writes her own blog, Elements of Style, and also has her own design business. So naturally, I think she’s awesome.

In her master bedroom, she has this great mix of orange and navy, sprinkled with pink. Her shams are right up my alley, with the thick colored border. And I really like that the monogram sits at the top, since my lumbar pillows will completely cover up the middle part of the sham. So I think I’ll send this photo and see where we end up!

Can’t wait to see it in person!

 

Annagrams

A former colleague of mine now turned friend, Anne Simmons, owns a darling little online shop called Annagram Cards. An “Annagram” is simply a monogrammed card or piece of stationery that can be given as personalized gifts. Monogramming is so popular, and these cards would make great shower or graduation gifts. I can think of several people in my life who would love these – and her signature square size is right up Middle Redefined’s alley since Jill and I pretty much love everything square. They’re $20 for a set of 12, and you can buy them with stripes, dots, or just bright, bold colors. What a fun idea!

Here are some photos of these gems. Check them out when you get a chance!
