Weekly Inspiration ~ Pillows

Hello and welcome to my weekly inspiration post! This weeks inspiration is ..... PILLOWS!!! If you love decorating then you probably love pillows like I do! They are such a quick and easy way to change up a room.

I use mostly neutral colored pillows with a subtle stripe or check mixed with solid colored tan, cream, and white pillows.  I like to create texture with a mixture of store bought pillows and ones that I make with either vintage fabrics or reproduction fabrics like ticking. Soft fabrics like linen and muslin and antique ticking that has been washed hundreds of times ensures a super comfy couch to rest on.

For example the pillow on top here is from LL Bean and the one under it is one that I made using ticking and muslin.

My rule is that all of our pillows have to be able to move from room to room and still match...cause that is exactly what happens...I either want to change things up or my kids are making a fort or we have lots of family here laying on all of the couches.

I still make the linen and ticking pillows seen above and sell them in my Etsy shop and have recently begun sewing pillows made with vintage coverlets. Coverlets are soft and have such a beautiful texture that they make for the perfect pillow cover.

My absolute favorite type of pillow is a blue and white ticking feather pillow...they are just perfection in my opinion and will forever be in style.

Well I hope you enjoyed this weeks inspiration! I have been busy busy busy getting ready for the Springfield, Ohio Antique Extravaganza May 19, 20, 21st. I probably won't have the time to do anymore weekly inspirations until after the show but I do plan on doing a post showing some of the goodies I am taking there! Until next time friends!

  6. I love the idea of a pillow coverlet. I love the color palette throughout your house. I strive to remove color from my rooms little by little. I find that with each replacement....There is a calm that comes with it. Ironstone is just what is needed in every room.

    Thank you and Happy Marketing for your Extravaganza!
