Perfectly Patriotic Outdoor Entertaining!

The Fourth of July is the perfect holiday for outdoor entertaining and relaxing, and the J Banks Retail Store has just received several new items that would make great additions to anyone’s Independence Day Soiree!

These new outdoor pillows are perfectly patriotic!

This graphic navy and white chevron pillow pairs nicely with this red one with a horizontal ruffle.

We love the nautical rope and grommet detail on this pillow. Wow – We can’t believe these are outdoor pillows!

We have a great selection of customizable trays, buckets and bins.  This “Cocktails” tray would be great beach or poolside!

Our new Graf & Lantz tote bags come in a variety of color combinations.  With leather straps and details they are chic, durable and most importantly – functional!

This white side table is perfect for a porch or patio.  Topped with glasses, red linen coasters and nautical print napkins it is the ideal place to set down your iced beverage or cocktail.

New rope napkin rings look great with nautical inspired red, white and blue place settings. These hand painted plates come adorned with red coral, lobsters and crabs!

For more information or to order any of these items please call our Retail Store at 843-682-1745.

Happy Fourth of July!

Shelley Wilkins: Tried & True – Good Ole Blue

I am not alone in my love of blue.  Everyone loves blue.  It is a safe and timeless color that is always on trend and easy to incorporate into almost any design.  Here are a few images I pulled together in which the color blue was used beautifully:

From the runway to your home…

From jewelry to wallcoverings…blue is here to stay!

These room settings are different styles but blue is the constant.

This is a great traditional room with antiques, blue fabrics and a blue cocktail table.

Nautical blue and white

Transitional with clean lines

Artsy and Eclectic

Red, white and blue – an all American classic with a modern twist

A neutral room with blue accents

You can use blue in paints, lamps, china, porcelain and even tile.  Blue does not always have to be used in fabrics.

Blue and white stripes painted on walls

Blue lacquer – Amazing!

 All greens with blue and white porcelain – Fabulous!

Love the blue porcelain with pops of pink

Blue tiles

Timeless blue Mottahedeh china

 I love the stripes on these great new lamps from Ralph Lauren.

This is one of my favorite pieces on the J Banks Retail floor in of course, blue and white!

This was a project that I worked on where the client had an existing assortment of different blue and white porcelain that we grouped as a collection above seating in the breakfast room.

This piece of furniture was originally painted black and I transformed it with blue and white lacquer paint so that it became the perfect place to display her collection as well.

As you can see, blue is easy and versatile.  Truly tried and true – good ole blue!
