Pottery Barn Aesthetic II

So I shared a little while back how Pottery Barn-like displays are found throughout my house (I think maybe they broke into the northern cottage as they were prepping the latest catalog) :)

Here are some additional images from around the house for comparison --

This image especially struck me as I had it all set up for winter display & just added the nest as we approach spring – this image is full of silver, nesting, a spring cloche – bright shimmering yumminess -

my junky version:

There we have it. Inspiration/copycat..whatever - I think it’s lovely…

I wonder what our next style version will be & what will show up in the PB catalog?

Chat soon -

  1. Your shimmering display is more inviting then PB's.

  2. I love your goodies better then PB anyway, cheaper and they have your flare to them!! Just goes to show that you don't have to shoppe in PB to have the PB look!

  3. I love everything...especially the little bird pillow and your baskets. Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments on my french chair post.

  4. Love it all! Falling head over heels over your baskets though!

  5. Wow, you done good! I did a post recently about how I think PB is copying bloggers now...you're right, I think they've been spying on you.
    Thanks for linking up!

  6. WOW! I love the "JUNK" tags and the "work" blocks on the lamp. It's the simple touches that make a home special and cozy :)
