In addition to the colourful bedding I wrote about, now I am dying for colourful pillows. Having worked at Anthropologie for sometime, I acquired the flair for layering textures and patterns in a way that is just right. Being a person who loves clean lines, and wears pretty simple cuts and colors, this has changed my taste a bit. Home design is something that is very personal, and I did love it all white and clean, until i figured out that white and clean only looks good in the magazines, but when you live in it, it come at you very sterile. So I am all for color and pattern now.
Colourful pillows are the little spots of colour that bring joy in a room. They can be used in a very clean interiors as accents, or add to the joy and bright magic as layers of colour in a busier decors. I am in love pillows since forever, and think they are like the shoes of interiors a girl can never have too many!
I recommend a browse at the Anthropologie site for home. The pillow section is amazing! I love the detailing – fringe, embroidery, and all the small things that make these pillows little works of art. My faves are these:
But then I started looking for pillow awesomeness at my favourite site for all things pretty – Etsy. I found two shops that are fantastic! Pillow ThrowDecor on Etsy is a little bit less fancy version of the Anthropologie pillows. They don’t have the detailing of the Anthro pillows, but still are beautiful!
Pillows give that extra little pizzazz to an atmosphere, that makes a home special. And to make it your own- color is all you need!
