Style: Right at Home

Upon moving to our new home in a strange and foreign place, we received a lovely housewarming gift from our familiar and very comfortable friends. The package contained a linen pillow with a single bent tulip insignia. The simplicity of the design was perfectly representative of our relationship with the benefactors—down-to-earth and oh-so-natural.

Three Sheets 2 the Wind has created a line that celebrates restrained organic beauty at its best. A design and manufacturing studio, Three Sheets produces handmade accessories that not only include pillows, but bedding and textile wall prints, as well. Patterns are screen printed using hand-dyed colors on rich linens and cottons. Both fabric and pattern dyes are offered in a variety of lush and nature-inspired colors, using names like squash, moss, twig, and robins egg. Even the pattern name offerings are minimally poetic—choose from single bud, vessel, and blossom tree. With over a dozen designs and colors to choose from, the possibilities for unique and motivating ideas are limitless. Or, if you’re in need of customizing a gift for that-special-someone, a Three Sheets’ design is guaranteed to delight, inspire, and make the recipient feel very much at home. Details:

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.
