The Pendleton Blanket was launched in the fall of 2014 as part of our first wave of home product offerings. Made of sustainable materials, the Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool™ Blankets were crafted using a Cradle to Cradle manufacturing approach, in which efficient and waste-free systems were utilized. What we love about this eco-friendly blanket is that it was designed to become softer with every wash, without losing its vibrant color, keeping it looking new for many years to come.

Home Transition: From Winter to Spring

The enchanting beauty of snow blanketing the earth is one of the reasons so many people love winter. But the breathtaking colors and splendor of spring is also a welcome sight. Take your cue from the surrounding landscape and transition your home from winter to spring with these decorating tips and ideas.

Forget Red, Think GREEN

Step out of winter by rotating out pieces of red décor that warmed up your home during the cold season. While this color still provides nice contrast in mid-February, it will look and feel tired when March comes around. Even if your geographical area is not ready for the life that spring brings, adding green ushers in the life expected in the coming months.

Mirror the emerging color outside by adorning your home with green décor items. Start introducing decorations that can last through May, such as spring moss topiary and a leafy centerpiece. Pillows on a neutral sofa provide a wonderful backdrop for other colors that might have been lost in the red and glitz of the past holidays.

As we welcome Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, let’s take a look at other palettes that can give your home a fresh and updated look.

Warm Tones

Warmer colors are starting to come back into vogue. A rich, reddish-brown, Marsala is a subtly seductive shade that has some grounding.
