Monograms… yay or nay?

I’m not a big fan of monograms.  I especially don’t like when people put a sticker monogram on their car – why is that necessary?  And on your iPhone?  Is that so nobody steals your phone?

I think monograms should be used sparingly.  My bath towels and guest towels have my monogram on them.  And I think I have one or two pieces of jewelry with my monogram.  That is all.  There is no reason to put your monogram on every single pillow and towel in your house.

Don’t get me wrong, monograms can be pretty – but they can also be tacky.  So before you go put your monogram on everything you own, draw the line somewhere.  Here are some pictures of what I think are good uses of monograms…

Fur

Lately all this cold weather has me wishing I had a big fur blanket to cuddle up in.   Atlanta weather has been so sporadic in the last couple of weeks.  One day it will be 73 degrees and then for three days straight the high temperature is like 50.  I can’t decide whether to turn the heat on or not.  I’d love to add a little fur to my apartment somehow… Faux fur, of course :)

Ikea has some great faux fur area rugs like this Tejn rug.  It would be so nice to have one right next to the bed.  My feet would love it first thing in the morning.

If faux blankets/pillows/rugs are too much for your home, perhaps you would like to add a little faux fur to your wardrobe like Kate Moss:

I’ve always wanted to have one of these furry hats but honestly don’t think I would ever wear it.  Think what your hair would look like when you took it off!  [JCrew Toscana Shearling Trapper Hat]

LOVE the furry print on this scarf… Sorry it’s probably not available any more… From One Kings Lane.

Anthrop0logie’s Divna Fur Jacket

Or I looove their Collared Peplum coat in Yellow.  But let’s be honest, you couldn’t wear a bright coat like this too often or you would be “the girl with the yellow fur collared coat”.

I have ALWAYS wanted some furry moccasin slippers like these Dakotas from Ugg Australia.  [hint hint, Santa Claus]

That’s all the fur I have for you today!

Holy Headboard

Um… I had no idea John Robshaw designed headboards.  And not just any headboards.  These fabulous unique shapely ones:

The Kerala

 

The Orissa

 

The Bihar

The names are fun too!  :)

I’m a little behind on my blog reading but I just saw an old post on So Haute and I couldn’t resist sharing.

Oh and that pretty bedding can be yours too.  Just head on over to John Robshaw’s website and see what else he has to offer.  It is ever expanding.
