It’s here again! A holiday that has become synonymous with the beginning of summer (and, unofficially the start of BBQ season). We are not overlooking what this holiday is truly about – honoring the lives of the noble men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country. We are indeed very grateful; grateful for all the sacrifices that have been made and are still being made.
And as any true American holiday, there is, of course, a commerce angle, so we’re not going to pretend there isn’t. We researched some of our favorite brands for special sales and promotions they have going on. So, dive in, do some shopping for your holiday house if you are in the shopping mood; if not then just step away and have a lovely weekend away from the internet, with the ones that you love. xx
1. LULU AND GEORGIA
Lulu and Georgia are offering 15% off on purchases over $300; 20% off on purchases over $600 and 25% off on purchases over $900. Yowza!
- We are loving this media cabinet, The Hannah, below. Hang or perch a TV on top and all of a sudden, your TV enhances the design of the space rather than takes away. If you don’t know to what I’m talking about, read about The Wallflower problem here.
- This Granger Bench is literally a savior for protecting your bed linens from dirty suitcases. You know how guests throw them on the bed, right? Place this beauty at the foot of your beds and your bedding budget will bow and thank you!
- We favor stone top coffee tables for the obvious reason – you don’t have to worry about stains (those annoying water glass rings) – and this one, the Thina, features a white marble top with a contrasting chic brass metal frame. The mesh shelf below would be perfect for holding an owner’s manual.
It’s going to start warming up sooner rather than later so might be time to refresh your patio! Guests will enjoy the great outdoors all the more. CB2 is having a 30% off sale on select outdoor furniture. We like:
- The 1730 Grey Rocking Loveseat because who doesn’t like to rock out on vacation? Plus the material will withstand the elements nicely making less work for you. Nice.
- Another super star favorite in vacation homes is a firepit outside. If you don’t have a permanent one, here’s a great portable gem that guests will love – the Urli Firepit.
3. West Elm
We use West Elm all the time in our projects because (1) the styles are awesome and (2) their sale prices are fantastic. Case in point, check out this cool armchair we just specified for our client’s guest house in the California desert…
- The Wire Frame Slipper Chair with commercial grade upholstery (key in vacation homes) is effortlessly chic.
- One thing we love about West Elm is they invite designers to create exclusive, limited edition, one-of-a-kind items found nowhere else. One such gem is Christina Lundsteen’s textile collection. One of the last remaining items – the Ticking Stripe Pillow in Midnight – is on sale; it will jazz up any sofa, bed or chair with its juxtaposition of blue, pink and yellow stripes.
4. 1 Chic Retreat Marketplace
We talk about sheets a lot here on the blog, particularly those white ones that make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. At the same time, paramount are sheets that don’t wrinkle easily and dry quickly in the dryer. Our Centium Satin sheets fit the bill and are on sale until June 1st. Use code MEMORIAL10 at checkout for a 10% discount.
5. Serena and Lily
We love Serena and Lily but we love them even more when they are having a sale. Use code SUMMERPREP for 20% on everything in the store. Here is what we are crushing on…
We think not featuring a large scaled pendant light over a dining table is a shame and also a major missed opportunity. That’s why we always specify them in our client’s vacation homes. For example, in this Santa Barbara beach house, we hung the Serena and Lily’s large Santa Barbara Round Pendant (touché). It’s large and dramatic and revs up any space, especially over this bleached oak dining table….
- The Capiz Scalloped Chandelier is an absolute stunner and will draw eyes upward always. Imagine this anywhere where there is a beach even remotely close by….
- There are certain pieces of furniture in all vacation homes that absolutely must stand up to guest abuse and one of these is the nightstand. We always specify sturdy, well-made, preferably solid nightstands, such as the Reese Nightstand. We just used two in the master bedroom of our latest Santa Monica Airbnb house (official portfolio shots coming soon by the way)….
6. Cost Plus World Market
We just wrote an article on how to create a fabulous bedroom with Cost Plus World Market, so we are excited to say they are also having a sale, using code MEMORIAL15.
- Ok, how fantastic are these Natural All Weather Wicker Wailea Outdoor Chairs, which come in a set of 2? Honestly, if these aren’t a steal for chic-ifying your outdoor space, what are?
- The Indigo Geometric Kantha Kashvi Quilt and Indigo Geometric Kantha Kashvi Pillow Shams Set Of 2 are just too good to pass up. We featured them in our recent bedding shoot and loved how they looked against white sheets with a splash of red.
Have fun shopping, everybody!
