Weekend Recap: Pearl River

  1. Dumbwit Tellher says:

    Camilla what a great alternative to DC, time shopping with your sisters and lunch. Pearl River looks like a place to while away some time in fun. Hope your week is now off to a great start. x deb

  2. Scientific Housewife says:

    Everything looks so colorful and fun!

  3. my favorite and my best says:

    i love that store. its like disneyworld to me.

  4. Nikki says:

    Wow! The price is right. I love those flower bowls.

  5. Lisa says:

    moved furniture around, painted the bedroom dressers for the 4th time (that's about 1 bedroom makeover every 2 years of our marriage). Am anxiously awaiting the newly ordered bedding to get here. Next up, frame the prints that have been thumbtacked up to the wall. Having a DIY frenzy over here 🙂

  6. Chic Coles says:

    What a great time you had! I will have to check it out when I am in NYC in April!

  7. Tara says:

    Hey, Camilla, I was at Pearl River on Saturday, too! I wonder if we passed each other unknowingly! We had a really fun day in Chinatown (and Battery Park area, and eating dinner :))!

  8. Erika @ BluLabel Bungalow says:

    I just got back from NY myself. Pearl River is an awesome resource for unique items! Great photos!

  9. LindsB says:

    I work right near Chinatown in Boston and there are a bunch of little stores all over just like this one. I always love going in and seeing all the pretty dishes they have- the colors and patterns are always so lovely.

  10. SogniSorrisi says:

    What a great store!

    We finally bought a new house so that was a big project this weekend that got taken care of. Plus there was the hockey game and my brother's birthday. Pretty busy.

  11. BeeHive says:

    What a fun store! We tackled installing recessed lighting in the kitchen this weekend. I'm looking for a pendant light to hang in front of our window/above the sink now. Pop on over to our blog, if you have any suggestions!

  12. other-option says:

    That window treat ments you've shown, 6th from the left looks like the flower print made famous in Domino…. Am I wrong?

  13. Design Esquire says:

    Wow- it looks like you had so much fun. I had a fun shopping trip too, to a crazy big fabric store.

  14. bazaarofserendipity says:

    It sounds like you had a great weekend! I am jealous! I would love to go to that amazing store.

  15. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    Well at least you had a fun weekend even though your trip was cancelled, thats what matters, love all these dishes and bowls, great patterns and so joyful. Will check their website, thanks!

  16. A Refocused Life says:

    Oh, what fun! Too bad I don't live close enough to take advantage of the super buys on blue and white.

  17. Laura@JourneyChic says:

    What a cool store! Those little plates and bowls are so pretty and versatile. Thanks for sharing pics of your shopping day!

    I'm having a jewelry giveaway today – stop by to enter!

  18. Averill says:

    I love all of pearl river's party supplies in particular — the votice candle holders, the paper lanterns. Great style for very little moola!

    This weekend I finally got around to refinishing a credenza I got off eBay in January. I'm pretty stoked about the results, too!

  19. Debbie says:

    I ridiculously love that store! I was there last time I was in the city in January. I couldn't get enough of all the tote bags & bought a pair of the little slippers for my niece for her birthday. I use those cute little $2-$3 bowls for feeding my kitties. And the rest of the dishes… I have a problem- I am addicted to dishes. Need I say more? Oddly enough, my favorite ones from that store are the melamine ones with the red and yellow pattern.

  20. Christine says:

    Oh I envy you all those beautiful goodies at great prices! I'll have to check out our little China town and see if I can find anything colorful. I did rehab another bargain mirror for the dining room – hoping to hang it tonight 🙂

  21. Marija says:

    Okay checking out the on-line shop but still really really really want to go there in person! (I loved your personal pics!) Marija

  22. The Zhush says:

    Another life time ago, I worked downtown (by the S.I.Ferry) I loved taking the trip up to Pearl River, what a great post! (and I totally get the camera shy thing @ Aero!).

  23. Decor I Adore says:

    I'm loving the curtains. I am looking for affordable and unique looking curtains for my bedroom. I always have the hardest time finding curtains. I miss NY so much! Gonna have to check out chinatown in Chicago.

  24. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    I think my brain would explode (and so would my wallet!)
    Will have to check out the website.
    VERY uneventful weekend down here, but, considering my condition, guess that's a good thing! 😉

  25. Laurie Jones says:

    Ok losing out on a trip to DC but going to Manhattan, awww you poor thing! (: That store is amazing, I love the ginger jar and the bowls with the flowers in it! I'm so glad you mentioned about paint colors and e-design, I have the same problem, I sometimes get scared doing it when I'm at a clients house, because the paint color is going to look different in the evening etc. Paint colors are probably the hardest thing for me to do in our profession. Maybe you could do a post on it?!

  26. Sweet Nothings says:

    omg im so excited they have an online shop!!

  27. Lavender and Lilies says:

    I love that store. I really want a set of cute sushi plates.

  28. Christen says:

    What a great place for inspiration! Love it!

  29. Centsational Girl says:

    I love that store, how fun to go exploring with your sis ! I love her choice of vase by the way !

  30. Emily says:

    This place is magical! Those flower bowls are to die for, great finds!!!

  31. Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish says:

    Love Pearl River and Ginger Jars! I just found one on clearance somewhere last week for $7!

  32. Southern Aspirations says:

    WOW! What a great find! Looks like a gorgeous and fun store. And a $13 ginger jar? Sign me up!

  33. Amy says:

    We started gutting our master bathroom-yikes! Good progress so far! Love Pearl River, I always find great stuff!

  34. Hopeless Chest says:

    I have been OBSESSED with Pearl River Mart since I was 13. Every time I get to NYC and I go to the store I get too excited and overwhelmed and I don't even buy anything. 🙁

  35. The Neglected Nest says:

    I LOVE Pearl River! I haven't been there in years, but I think it's time for a visit. Thanks for the reminder!

  36. Jen of Made By Girl says:

    I wish I could visit that store….I've heard so much about it!
    They have a great selection of vases too… :))))

    Did you get to check out their furniture section upstairs? A bit Viva Terra without the shipping cost.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
