Welcome Charlotte & Ivy & a Fabulous Giveaway & My Giveaway Winner






I am delighted to welcome as a new sponsor Charlotte & Ivy. Charlotte & Ivy is a curated web-store with hand picked selections and preppy modern designs. They have been called the J.Crew of home furnishings. They specialize in beautiful finds, superb rug selection, great beds, and are a little Chinoiserie crazy!

Charlotte & Ivy is run primarily by three 30-something designers. After years of working in the design industry, they realized how hard it is for shoppers to find the gorgeous pieces decorators do. Websites are overstuffed with choices and everything blends together. Charlotte & Ivy strives to offer exclusively hand-picked pieces, a luxury boutique experience with the best prices. They shop the marketplaces, scour the antique stores, and work with specialty craftsman to create interesting custom upholstery for their online luxury collection. Whether you love French country, Hollywood glamour, Chinoiserie, or cottage furniture, count on Charlotte & Ivy to help you express your style! Their unique pieces have superior style, value, and design.

Charlotte & Ivy thinks customer service is as important as hand-picking hard to find products they'd want in their own homes. They end up doing a lot of personal shopping for people on hard to find pieces too! Right now they are working on gilded beds and Gustavian style bedrooms.

If you are looking for advice or a special item, they can always help. Their first love in decorating was collecting blue and white porcelain and trying to find the perfect Chinese Chippendale dining chair. What is yours? Let Charlotte & Ivy know what you're looking for and they'll find it.

They have graciously offered this navy and natural chevron blanket (with a retail price of $170.00) to a lucky follower of Chinoiserie Chic. It measures 60"x 50" and is 100% cotton and made in the USA. To enter, go visit their website and find your favorite piece. Come back and leave one (1) comment on this post telling the piece you love most and where you'd use it in your home. You have until midnight ET on Thursday, May 16, 2013 to enter. The winner of the chevron blanket will be announced on Friday, May 17, 2013. Open to U.S. residents only.

Chevron blanket giveaway

This is my favorite piece - The Palace Pagoda Bed. It is very much like my Annie Selke gold leaf pagoda bed that has been discontinued and I get so many emails asking about it! I have also created a Charlotte & Ivy - Chinoiserie Chic Picks Pinterest board where I have been choosing my favorite pieces from their beautiful collection.

So difficult to choose only one thing, but it would have to be the faux bamboo chandelier. So pretty!

All of the pieces on this site are so lovely. At the moment, my favorite is the Greek Key Pattern Etched Glass Candle Holders because I have been looking for some new hurricanes for my mantle place!

Seriously? Choose one item from all that gorgeousness? There's almost nothing I DON'T want! These 3 ladies are clearly amazing and this is my new favorite store. Really. But okay, if I have to choose something right now, I do have the perfect spot for the MARY BLUE & WHITE PAISLEY WING CHAIR...but actually, I'd need two. :)

I love everything they have! What an awesome store! It is next to impossible to just pick one thing, but I guess I would choose the Nautical Knots rug in navy. Then it would coordinate beautifully with the throw that I have wanted SOOOO badly for such a long time!
