Today I want to welcome a new sponsor to Cote de Texas – SHED, THE ECLECTIC HOME.

SHED has a large inventory of varied decorative items for the home – including furniture, accessories and textiles. 


In celebration of our new partnership – SHED has graciously offered to host a giveaway!!






Here’s a small sampling of things that SHED carries that I really love – such as this set of dog prints that is so cute!




SHED has wonderful mirrors  - some small….




 and some large.



When I look at online catalogues – I like to have inspiration….




For instance, I love busts on consoles and tables – like this one in my entry hall.






Or this vignette by Darryl Carter.






And, SHED has busts, not concrete, but lightweight resin – in several different styles.  I love this particular one.






Letters in d├ęcor are trendy – and I really like this style - a gilt letter on painted black board.








I love a zebra rug – like the one in my family room, but real zebra can be bit a pricey.

Kelly from the The Polished Pebble used a zebra stamped cowhide rug in this living room.  The cowhide is a great budget alternative to real zebra.






And here,  SHED sells the cowhide/zebra rug.

If a zebra rug is too much OR not enough, try a bench.

And here under a console table with lamps and a wonderful large antique map.







Shed, The Eclectic Home sells this beautiful bench.  Look for it on their web site.





Everyone’s favorite is Houstonian Sally Wheat’s living room with her two benches covered in Tibetan lamb. 






Now is your chance to emulate Sally’s look - Shed’s benches come in several colors and sizes.  







I love antique books – especially Vellum ones.  Rose Tarlow filled her bookcases with hundreds of antique vellum books. But they are pricey – oh my gosh – PRICEY!!!







When it came time to fill my shelves, I opted for reproduction vellum antique books.  But even those can be hard to find.






Again,  SHED has several colors of these wonderful books.  And very reasonable.








Miles Redd likes to use fur throws in his bedrooms – like in this fabulous green and blue room.





He used a fur in his own NYC bedroom.







This gorgeous fur throw is in Suzanne Rheinstein’s bedroom.  Can’t afford a real fur throw?  Who can?






Instead – SHED offers several faux mink throws, in different colors.




AND this is the giveaway! 




The winner of this contest will receive this wonderful faux fur white throw – for the end of your bed, or your sofa.  The faux white mink has a retail value of $179!!
