Stylish, durable, collectible and practical- and all in one pottery line.

Three bold and colorful patterns as well as one solid-color design (available in several colors) makes for quite a display in our front window.

[Bed-room, -room]- A place of rest, a place of retreat. An escape from the everyday.

Does your bedroom feel like this? Odds are it could use a little sprucing up and a little freshening for spring. Since your bed is the largest piece of furniture and usually the focal point in the bedroom, why not make it the star of the show and really dress it up with layers of beautiful, tasteful, perfectly-you bedding?

Pine Cone Hill is the best bedding line for on-the-go, style conscious women like yourselves. It offers hundreds of patterns, colors and fabrics all expertly grouped into different categories to suite the style of the bedding. Don't worry though, it's all about mixing and matching and creating your perfect bed.

From master suites to dorm rooms and everything in between, Pine Cone Hill has coordinating bedding for every room in (and out of) your home.

Crisp, clean and colorful, 2011 has us seeing new patterns, colors and fabrics that are light, bright and classic. If the minimalist in you is crying out for some peace and organization this is one bedding ensemble you should take a look at. Crisp white sheets with a simple aqua scallop and a duvet printed in a classic, ageless floral set the tone for a no-fuss bed full of style.  A pop of color is introduced with the aqua matelasse (new for 2011!) and ties the whole scheme together. We love this bed for any age girl, from 5-50!

Girly-girl all the way! While there's no doubt that this bed is bright and pink, pink, pink, the simple patterns and layers of texture help to keep it in check. The simple sheets, matelasse and shams will grow with your or your child's tastes and can easily be paired with different pieces to create a whole new look when it's time for another update.

Classic. Simple. Elegant. The Ruched Linen ensemble is one of our best selling collections. We love the feminine details and the natural linen color that allows it to be paired with a lot of Pine Cone Hill's sheets, quilts and coverlets. If you're the sort that likes to keep things neutral and pop with different accent colors and pieces, may we recommend Ruched Linen. You will easily be able to switch out throw pillows, quilts and shams to change up the look as often as you like.

Urban Treehouse is a collection that Pine Cone Hill introduced in 2010. We love the soft fabrics and sea-inspired colors. Within the Urban Treehouse collection are a lot of patterns, colors and textures that will keep the men in your house happy, while still conforming to your design philosophy.

At Bella Vita we have the full Pine Cone Hill catalog (new 2011 pieces!) and an extensive sample collection for you to browse, layer and swap until you have the perfect bed set for your bedroom.

Don't forget, this week only is our annual Pine Cone Hill event! Receive 15% off your entire Pine Cone Hill purchase, including special orders. Event runs Monday, February 21 through Saturday, February 26, 2011.

See you soon!

The last few days have been a tease here in the Mid-South. Comfortable 65 degree (and warmer!) days have left us with a new lease on life, and an unstoppable urge to get ready for spring. And while Mr. Weather Man says those glorious days are not here to stay, we assure you that spring is in at Bella Vita, and it’s not going anywhere…except with you that is!

Can you think of a better way to call on spring than with a new, spring-inspired handbag? Everything about Orla Kiely says spring. The funky patterns, modern colors, clean lines and organized interiors of each handbag, wallet and tote are meant to have you stepping out in style all season long.

The body of the bag is a matte laminated cotton. It's lightweight and durable, perfect for toting around everyday. The accents are what will really catch your eye- genuine leather, cotton adjustable handles and pockets and dividers inside. It's true what they say, "it's all in the details".

*Orla Kiely handbags, wallets and totes are 20% off Friday-Saturday, February 18-19, 2011. In-store only.
