fall inspiration and gift ideas

 from Pacific & Rose      


Three new prints just dropped yesterday from Pacific & Rose, including this one… the Charlotte print in Indigo. Isn’t she pretty? 

I love how the muted denim-like color of Charlotte can effortlessly carry me through each season. Here I've paired it with freshly cut hydrangeas from the garden, pretty goblets and my vintage placemats.


There’s also a pretty caramel version of this Charlotte pattern that you'll see next. with cinnamon-like colors. They both coordinate so nicely with the floral Lilibet pattern. The Lilibet Caramel Indigo napkin is shown here.


It most definitely feels like the weather has moved on to autumn this week here. Are you ready for the cozy new season?


The muted tones of Autumn can be seen here at this table. Check out how the Andaluz and Toledo pillows look with the new Charlotte Caramel tablecloth and Lilibet Caramel Indigo napkins

I love how Elizabeth has created this collection for fall and winter that intertwines so nicely.


Just add a few select tableware pieces and a scattering of small pumpkins and gourds to your table, and you're Thanksgiving ready!


Now for the softer side of autumn… Lilibet Caramel Indigo.


This simple & cozy table is full of all kinds of seasonal pretty. A sweet look that's easy to achieve with these pretty Lilibet napkins and tablecloth. I love adding lots of textures to add dimension and interest to the table.


Fun pumpkin plates are also a fun addition. I usually find fun ones at Home Goods this time of year.


Also new to debut this week are the table runners and placemats in the same three prints and colors as the tablecloths and napkins.


And of course, it’s always fun to mix and match these elements.


The placemats on the tablecloth give off a very elegant vibe, especially for Thanksgiving. It delineates each person’s place setting so nicely.


You can’t go wrong with this look for fall. The way the Charlotte table runner casually adds so much character to the space makes it one of the easiest dΓ©cor fixes out there!


I like to leave a pretty runner on the table for weeks at a time. Just add fresh flowers and candles.    


Table setting has never been easier!


Here’s the same look using the Charlotte Indigo table runner, placemats and napkins. A look that can be used 365 days of the year!


The new Autumn line of goods also makes holiday gift-giving a breeze. Check out the pretty kitchen tea towels that are sure to elevate any kitchen setting.


The new soft voile cotton Kimono-style robes also make thoughtful gifts. Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up and just effortlessly throw one of these pretty robes on?

Treat your favorite cook to a lovely apron that just coordinates with everything on the table! Wouldn’t that be fun?

They’re so comfortable. I love the two large front pockets, and the adjustable neck strap makes wearing it so easy.

The new season deserves a new cosmetic pouches or two. These are constructed from a quilted block-printed cotton and the inside is lined with plastic, for easy clean-up. They also have little pockets inside and an adorable tassel finishes off the look.


Seaside Gallery & Goods  will be carrying the whole new line as well as classic favorites. You can shop online here, or if you’re local, stop in for a visit in Newport Beach.


Seaside Gallery and Goods is located at 124 Tustin Avenue in Newport Beach, just off of Pacific Coast Highway.

the best Thanksgiving serving pieces

Raise your hand if you're excited about Thanksgiving? πŸ™‹ Will you be hosting? 

We host a small family gathering every year, and I cook everything from scratch, although last year I did buy the canned cranberry sauce instead of making my own, and it was definitely a crowd favorite!

As I get ready for the holiday this year, I’m so grateful to have such beautiful pieces on my table that really showcase this special holiday.

As much as I’ll miss the pretty autumn days of October, I think November promises to be just as beautiful. 
I just love how this Pacific and Rose Castile tablecloth looks with blue and white transferware, so I brought it outdoors and set a little alfresco table in the backyard next to my wall of plates on the side of the shed. 

I think this look works perfectly for a buffet table or a welcoming drink and appetizer table for Thanksgiving. 

You may also spot a few festive little turkey pieces from Arthur Court Designs that really add a lot of fun to the holiday. 

The blue and white turkey plates are from Home Goods that I got a few years back, and I always love using them to bring out the blue of the season. 

And all the pretty flowers are from Trader Joe’s.      


I invite you to take a look at all the lovely holiday tableware from Arthur Court Designs and Vagabond House.

Also on the table is a versatile linen Buffalo Check tablecloth from Solino Home. It creates the perfect backdrop for Thanksgiving!

3 new fall patterns from Pacific & Rose


the Andaluz Collection       


This is the time of year that makes me so happy! Yes, it’s practically fall, and you know how much I love fall, but today, I’m really excited about the release of the new Andaluz Collection from Pacific & Rose... and more!

Premiering this week from Pacific & Rose, three brand new tablecloths and matching napkins as well as the best surprise of all, lots and lots of gorgeous new luxurious linen pillows!

First I'd love to show you the tablecloths and napkins. We'll start with the gorgeous Granada pattern...


This pattern on the table is called Granada Blush. A lovely, subdued print for those of us who love just a hint of pink. The colors are subtle and soft and so pretty for the fall and winter seasons ahead.


The Granada print in Blush is a stylized update on the traditional pomegranate motif. Block printed in a subtle blush pink, this color is reminiscent of the buildings in the old city of Jaipur, known as the Pink City. 

Hand block-printed on a substantial oxford cotton by traditional artisans with hand-carved teak blocks at their fair-trade workshop in Jaipur, India.


And check out the Granada print in Stone. This stylized update of our traditional pomegranate motif is block printed in tones of stone blue, indigo and olive creating a subtle chorus of cool weather colors.


Summer into fall is one of my favorite times of the year for inspiration. I love the moodiness of the eucalyptus leaves with the bright pop of pink from the coleus with the subtle color palette of the Granada tablecloth and matching napkins.

As you can see above, I am also sharing a peek at two of the newest pillows in the Madrid pattern, Indigo on the left and Stone Blue on the right.



I love that these colors are so versatile, just like a pair of favorite worn-in dungarees. The combination of colors lends itself to matching with practically any color combination.


I love that something as simple as a bundle of eucalyptus can brighten up a whole room.

🌿My neighbor Maureen has a eucalyptus tree in her front yard, and I have permission to snip off fresh leaves whenever I need them. She’s so sweet!


Along with the Cordoba tablecloth and napkins and the two colorways for the Granada pattern, Pacific & Rose is releasing an array of fabulous new linen pillows for fall. 

Can you spot the Madrid pillow in Caramel in the photo above?


This Cordoba print with its swirling foliage is block printed in tones of caramel and indigo, a perfect cool weather color palette.

For a little fun, I used the Stoneware Bee napkin ring from Vagabond House and gorgeous Arte Italica dinner plates and Boho placemat from  Carolyn Bender. Doesn't the placemat look perfect with the Cordoba print?


The Cordoba print coordinates beautifully with the linen Madrid pillows in Caramel or indigo.


Who’s ready for some pillow talk? All the new pillows from Pacific & Rose are block-printed on 100% natural linen. 

Pictured above are the Alhambra and Malaga pillows.


Next, we have the Madrid in Indigo with the Madrid in Caramel and the Toledo Pillow in Indigo.

Another lovely combination is Madrid in Stone Blue and Toledo in Olive. It’s the perfect look for a beach house or modern cottage.


Here’s a peek at ALL the pillows. Seaside Gallery & Goods  will be carrying the whole new line of tablecloths, napkins and pillows as well as their classic favorites. 

You can shop online here, or if you’re local, stop in for a visit in Newport Beach.


Seaside Gallery and Goods is located at 124 Tustin Avenue in Newport Beach, just off of Pacific Coast Highway.
