Sometimes, the most effective messages are those that consist of very few words. The same holds true when it comes to style-- take your little black dress, for instance. You can wear it for any occasion, casual or dressy, day or night. In our book, you can't go wrong with classic simplicity. While we'll always appreciate a statement making decorative piece, sometimes you just need something basic to stand out in a living space. Our newest collection of wooden plaques do just that, making their mark in a powerfully understated way.

Plaque Display 

Crafted from worn wood, each plaque features a rustic backdrop painted with a simple whitewash. The plaque is framed with natural wood, and adorned with a simplistic yet inspirational message. These plaques make a memorable gift for the special people in your life, as we're sure they are unlike anything else they'll receive. We love the idea of hanging one or a collection of these together on a wall painted in a rich, warm hue. 

Single Plaque 

The days of stressing over the perfect placement of statement making, over the top pieces are over. Go ahead and simplify your life and decorative routine now-- you'll be amazed at the result!

A Bella Vita Makeover

Like a fine wine, Bella Vita just seems to get better with age. From new products to creative displays, we are constantly on a mission to make life even more beautiful with each passing day of our existence. In the spirit of all things beautiful, we've decided to give our beloved website a makeover. After all, even the most wonderful things need an update from time to time. While we won't unveil the new website's complete look for about another month or so, we wanted to give you, our very special friends, a sneak peak at the exciting things to come in the web world of Bella Vita. Without further adieu, we'd like to introduce our website makeover (which will still has the same URL-- 

Catalog of products

The updated website features the same warm Bella Vita look that you've grown to love over the years. The catalog is organized in a clean, archive-friendly manner, with larger images and a sort feature on the left side of the page. We wanted to make it even more convenient for you to browse and select a few of your favorite things!

Once again, notice the fresh look and feel, with a scrolling main image that features a selection of our products, services and artists. We are very excited about the new searchable wedding registry, as well as the wish list feature. You'll be able to create an account and collect your own wish list items to send to friends and family for easy gift giving. Speaking of gifts, showering the brides in your life will be easier than ever with a registry database that can be searched with the click of a button. While you can't create a registry online, the search and shopping is sure to be a whole lot easier.

In order to make your shopping experience even easier and more enjoyable, we've created a product display that is lighter in color and easier on the eyes. As we mentioned before, images are larger and there is a sort and search menu on the left side of the screen. The menu makes sorting by color, style, price, and size as simple as can be.

Birthday Milestones

Posted by Stephanie Singley | Permalink

She's all set when it comes to fantastic accessories, gorgeous jewelry, cozy home accents and books to record all of her post-graduations adventures. All that's left on the graduate princess's to-do list is to create her very own fabulous space to slumber after a long, busy day in the real world. Wouldn't it be wonderful to help her out by giving her the gift of a beautiful bed chamber? 

Burlap and neutral color scheme

Graudation clearly marks the transition into adulthood, and we're sure she's ready to shed the sweet sheets off her bed and move into something a little more cozy and chic. Always a favorite, Pine Cone Hill's bedding collection present classic style with timeless elegance that she'll never outgrow. We love the idea of mixing soft floral prints with the rustic edge of burlap shams to create the perfect union of today's most of-the-moment decorative looks. Whatever, you choose, you're sure to find the right mix to suit her maturing style, and you can't go wrong with Pine Cone Hill's quality fabric design and construction.

Hot pink floral design

Looking for a classic style? Try the soft colors of a neutral palette. If she'll prefer something spunky to suit her personality, bright colors and fun prints are just the right option. The styles of Pine Cone Hill's many collections are anything but boring, and will make for a beautifully comfortable bed chamber for your graduating princess as she embarks on the adventures of adulthood. 

Soft blues and neutral stripe color scheme

There's one slight problem though-- it's already hard enough to get out of bed without snoozing the alarm. Now she'll have to really fight the urge to stay in her cozy bed all day! Maybe you should go ahead and warn her now?
