Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Today these beach-y pillows came in just in time for Memorial Day Weekend.

Sansaar Olive Pillow

From top to bottom:

Navy Patolla Pillow

Turquoise Patolla Pillow

Saffron Round Trellis Pillow

Blue & Green Round Trellis Pillow


When they came in, we were discussing how great they’d be in a beach house. Then we started day-dreaming about beaches and vacations.

Erin’s dream beach vacation would be here:

Danai Beach Resort in Chalkidiki, Greece

Bryn’s dream beach vacation would be here:

Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa in Bora Bora, French Polynesia

We found these beautiful vacation spots in the Seaside Hotels coffee table book we have here in the store.

We hope your Memorial Day weekend is filled with sun (and hopefully some sand, too!)

[ Isabella will be closed Monday for Memorial Day and will re-open on Tuesday. ]

Around The Shop

It’s starting to feel like summer outside, and it’s starting to look like summer inside of Isabella! We have gotten in a ton of cute, bright accessories that are perfect for adding a bit of summer to your home. Check it out..

These guest towels are similar to Turkish towels (pictured above). They are super absorbent and are perfect for bath or kitchen.

Bryn purchased the hot pink towel to put in her powder room:

We love these small colorful ceramic boxes (pictured above).. the colors are perfect and we love the chevron detail!  It would be great for holding matches next to your favorite candle. (Contact us for purchase info at 704.377.4919).

Another colorful ceramic option – these small bright damask-style trays (shown above) are so versatle. (Contact us for purchase info at 704.377.4919).

We love lumbar pillows here at Isabella, and these (above in Charcoal and Azure) from Dwell Studio are an easy way to add some graphic pattern.

Both Shannon and Bryn are in love with these Mercury glass lamps with linen shades (pictured below). Shannon already put one in her home, and Bryn is planning on doing them same 🙂

Do you see our newest headboard in the picture above? We love it!

Erin put this vignette together; it’s such a fresh color palette. Navy + Lavendar – pretty and preppy at the same time. Like what you see? You can pick up the pillow here!

Speaking of color palettes, here is one we are currently working on in our design loft:

Chartreuse and purple!
