Pottery Barn -- So Much Beauty, So Little Time...

Fortunately for me, I have a Pottery Barn store about 25-30 minutes from my house and tonight I decided to visit. I hadn't been there in quite a long time and was excited to go back and catch up on what I had missed.

Lamps galore!

The base of that table lamp is almost identical to the two table lamps I have in the living room. I love the modern look of the glass spheres.

I remember seeing that pretty outdoor sectional in the catalog. Even though it wasn't overlooking a beautiful wooded valley, I still thought it looked pretty. =] It was even on sale because obviously since it's August now, no one is going to need outdoor furniture anymore...

I love <3 love white couches and here is just one of the many that I got to swoon over. I also love that chocolate brown coffee table. Gorgeous.

I would like to have every basket on those shelves back there, but I actually made it out of the store with 0 baskets. I'm so proud of myself. I also would like to have 12 of those blue pillows. No, I don't have any idea where I would put 12 of them, but that is a beautiful color and they are cute.

More baskets that I didn't buy! I really do need some of those darker ones in my life though. I think that pretty much anytime I walk into a store like this, I want all of their baskets. Am I the only one that does that?

I wanted to take home two of these end tables. My love. But unfortunately, I am not made of money.

I love pillows and I love blue and green so this section made me pretty happy to look at.

Especially this shelf.

And most importantly, my dream desk. I don't want that hutch on top there, but other than that, I am in love. The crisp white color, the plethora of storage, the convenient shape. Ahhh..... But again, I'm not made of money. It's fun to visit though and look at all the beautiful things! I can dream, right?

Anyone have a Pottery Barn near them they love to visit occasionally? =]

I love Pottery Barn, but can rarely
afford the things that I would like to buy from them. I think most people agree that they get the catalog, see what they like and try to replicate it somewhere else for less money. I realize nice things cost money, but value is a realitive thing.
I love the way Pottery Barn smells too. Kind of a mix between straw, bamboo and fresh linnens and the beach. I don't know what it is, but it smells great.

You lucky girl!
The closest Pottery Barn I have is 3 hours away & its one of the small ones(about the size of your average gas station)!I've been once & was in HEAVEN!!! I couldn't come out empty handed so I bought a couple things that were on clearance!
