DownEast Home and Clothing Review {sponsored post}

Tuesday, September 11, 2012
This month I was given the opportunity to go to DownEast Home and Clothing to do a review.  Now, this wasn't hard for me- I LOVE DownEast Home and all the goodies I can find there.  Usually I'm in the market for small ticket items (as I was this time) BUT, see that gray cabinet?  I REALLY, REALLY want that cabinet!  I'm saving up my pennies and dimes so I can have it. :)
But, since my walls are brown in the room I want this cabinet for, perhaps this would be a better option?  The wood top would be the perfect unifying accent to tie the gray with the brown walls. The thing I love about DownEast Home is the prices.  The pieces of furniture are great quality at wonderful prices.  Prices good enough, I actually have a prayer of getting one of these into my home sooner rather than later. :)
Great furniture isn't the only thing you can find at DownEast.  They have many styles and types of textiles for your home.  I found a wonderful cozy blanket to keep in my newly finished basement for those cold winter nights watching movies.
Mostly though, when I head to DownEast, it's for the accessories.  It's like a great treasure hunt because they have them scattered throughout the displays and you have to look pretty closely or you might miss something amazing.  I love these beautiful serving dishes.  That's what I want the cabinet for- to store my serving pieces, and if I had a cabinet that large, I could get away with buying these too. ;)
I think these stools would be awesome in my new craft room.  Easy to move around and tuck away when not in use.
However, as I said, I was on the hunt for accessories to put around my house.  I like a modern cottage feel, casual but not too busy.  I love small accessories for the warmth and charm they give a home, but I don't want it to be crazy with millions of them.  These are the treasures I found for my home.  I love the white pillars with the hurricanes on them- I think they are going to be so fun to use for holidays.  I am thinking of filling them with skulls or spiders for Halloween.  The birds are just little fun pieces to spread around.  I love the colors they are now, but I'm thinking they may look a bit more modern if I spray paint them a solid color.  We'll have to see. ;)  The bike, well, it's just fun.  The pots are wonderful, and again will be fun to change seasonally, but I may paint them as well to have them stand out a bit more.
DownEast has clothing too.  I wanted to take some pictures of the cute pieces they have for the new season, but I got so busy grabbing things to try on, I forgot.  I'll have to rectify that situation and go back soon. ;)

We finished our basement just weeks before the baby was born so we're still in the process of arranging things and figuring out where everything should go.  I'll make sure to keep you posted on these  pieces and where they end up. :)

If you're local to Utah, and looking for a fun place to find treasures for your home or wardrobe- DownEast Home and Clothing is a wonderful option.  You can find them on Twitter here: www.twitter.com/downeasthome ; and on FB here: www.facebook.com/downeasthome.  And if you're not local, you can always look through their treasures online.

Now I better get to work organizing and cleaning up so these beauties will have a lovely place to call home. 
Talk to you soon!
xoxo,
Amy
