Colorful Catalogs

Today is my birthday and the mailman brought me a bunch of catalogs.


After I got over the fact that I didn’t get that million dollar check in the mail, I figured I might as well flip through the catalogs to compare hot new items and look for color themes.  Here are my picks:

Williams Sonoma Home:


I love the delicate patterns of these colorful throw pillows.  After a long, cold winter {like the one we’re having on the East Coast}, these pillows will be just the thing to usher in the spring.

This year, CB2 is featuring items in fun, bright colors such as this lemongrass sofa {above}.  In line with the current trend, the catalog showcases contemporary hues along with gray, black and white.

Love this chest!  That gorgeous blue is somewhere in between turquoise and peacock blue.  I’m actually thinking about painting my front door this color.  Below is a chair and pillows in the prettiest of patterns.

West Elm:


I love West Elm for their budget-friendly, casual seating.  These ‘scoop-back’ chairs {above} are no exception, and why choose just one?  2010 will be all about mixing and matching, so select one of each and place them around your dining table.

Here is another great chair that can double-duty as a dining chair and accent chair.  CB2 calls this color persimmon — which is really a variation of coral — which you’ll also see described as mango this year.  I’m really loving this color right now.

If these featured items are any indication of what’s to come, this will be a year of bountiful color {and way more catalogs}!
