Loving Lulu this fall (and every season, for that matter), we keep an eye on her blog Trail of Inspiration. She is such a powerhouse of design, art, ideas and blogging... not to mention motherhood! Below is our Re-Post of Lulu's September 2, 2012 article showcasing the new Matouk Table Linens she created. We have these in-store now and they're flying out the door. The patterns are spot-on for color & style, the fabric is an amazing drapey twill. Brighten up your table and delight your guests...

|Taking a nudge from John Robshaw's 2012 Tabletop Collection and inspired by Polyvore's Amazing Fashion Collage, we realized Fall just wouldn't be the same without Aubergine, Ruby, Coppery Brown & Gold layers. So in love with these rich shades of warmth, we're not only wearing them, but preparing for a toasty season by using the same idea at home. See how!|
A quick and easy way to bring Fall into your living space is by using a mix + match aesthetic. This is most simply done at the table. Use Autumn's rich colors and layers everyday for the pure pleasure of it, maybe exchanging the Baccarat & Caymus for a Stemless Wine Glass and Cantina Gabriele or have a gathering & wow your guests. Throwing in the Robshaw Table Linens will keep your sophisticated table casual & eclectic.

As of Tuesday, we officially entered the dog days of summer. Long, hot days that are perfect for outside entertaining. As you all prepare for the next summer party, we thought we would help out with some inspiration. From must-have tabletop, to recipes and fashion, we hope to give you the boost you've been looking for to plan that perfect party!
Starting with the table: going with paper and plastic is so wasteful and you have to re-purchase them for every event. Instead, having a go-to summer set eliminates the need for that! Below are some of our favorite items - reusable solo cups? That's certainly one way to be eco-friendly!
1. Ceramic Lemonade Dispenser
2. Hand Embroidered Linen Cocktail Napkins with Nautical Compass
3. Navy & White Lighthouse DInner Plates
4. Woven Cotton Striped Napkin/Placemat
5. Washable 'Paper' Solo Cups
6. Clear Pitcher
Parties need refreshments and we always look to food recipes, but a great way to impress guests is with homemade drinks.
For the kids, lemonade is a perfect beverage. And of course, our favorite is from Paula Deen!
- As for the adults, beer and wine are a requirement, but mojitos are so refreshing and perfect for hot dog day nights!
- Now that you have all that covered, what are you going to wear? We love tunics. They are comfortable and easy, especially paired with white jeans. But the best part about them is that they look great on! Our favorite is the John Robsha Kurtas we have in store!

|Green and Aqua and Blue! Oh My!|
Shades of blue & seafoam have done a lot to jazz up the Ludoli Duvet & Shams by John Robshaw. Last season, we showed Ludoli with soft whites & other muted greens, but with the pattern going forward into 2012, we felt it needed a little new life in the store. Using a few of John's new pillows, a little Matouk, some Cashmere and a Ryan Studio Stunner in a Schumacher Fabric, this is our bed of the week.
How To Make It:
|2 Ludoli Euro Shams to position at headboard, behind Parterre Pillowcases|
|1 Ludoli Duvet for foot of bed or to pull all the way up if you want to keep it simple|
|1 Bonaparte Bolster Pillow for the front|
|2 Raja Sky Pillows to place behind Bonaparte Bolster|
|1 Inca Lumbar for Front of Bed - It's tiny but mighty!|
|Matouk's Parterre Sheets and Cases in White with Opal|

Today we received another 20 pillow styles! Among our favorites was this slate and yellow printed linen Bansuri piece. We recommend pairing with John Robshaw's Rabari Gray Bedding and Sferra's Simply Celeste Grey Sheets and Cases. This bold pillow would also look great on a natural linen sofa or loveseat.
