Maybe it's the unusually warm Winter we're having in Northern California, but I'm already anxious to incorporate exuberant Spring colors and patterns into my wardrobe and home.
Luckily, H.D. Buttercup's San Francisco location just added a new millworks shop-in-shop filled with pillows ($58-$78) covered in graphic patterns and groovy palettes. While the prints are botanically inspired, the drawing style and colors evoke a sort of retro, California coolness that I love.
I noticed a similar vibe in pieces from Lela Rose, Erin Fetherston, and Libertine's Spring 2012 collections. The mesh of contrasting, abstract patterns in complementary hues achieves the same sort of effect that a sofa full of the new Millworks pillows would — funky, but still polished. Perfect for ringing in an early Spring!
