I think a good number of us can agree that a wonderful way to personalize your home is by adding your monogram here and there. You do not have to married to have a monogrammed guest room or monogrammed towels everywhere (I remember using some of my mother's pre-wedding towels at the pool when I was a little girl; it is always good to invest in items that will be useful down the road, right?!). Well, monogramming can get expensive when you are redoing rooms and bathrooms, but their are options from numerous wonderful, high quality companies that will allow you to really personalize your home for a little less, but still give you luxury quality!
Schweitzer Linens is a linen staple company (I have been eyeing a FABULOUS blanket cover for a few months and it is very Porthault, but 1/4 of the price!). Their Cambridge collection is simply divine and it is all about your initials too! The Cambridge shams are on sale for just $55 (plus $17 for a monogram) and get this, the blanket covers start at $115 for a twin and only go up to $160 for a king (plus $55 for the monogram)! All these items are such a steal for such great quality, I wish I needed to bedding or had a guest room to decorate! However, would I choose pink or blue!?
Raynuad is such afforable china. I am sure many of you seen their lovely monogrammed china, but did you know you can get a five piece placesetting for just $297 from Gracious Style! That is a wonderful deal for a fine, handpainted monogram in my opinion! I also adore the oval platter ($320) which you could pick up in a color that might match your existing pattern.The Varga stemware is not as inexpensive as the other items, but often we do have to pay a bit more to get wonderful and unique quality. If you want to really personalize your next dinner pick up a few water goblets for $165. Water goblets are perfect because they do not have to match your red and white wine glass and these will be hand etched JUST for you! It is fun to mix things up and these are certain to do exactly that!
So, whether you are in the market for more monograms to add to your home or simply looking to enjoy some lovely eye candy hopefully this post will do!
