Every single day I pick out pretty pillows for other people.. but we've lived in this house for a year and I have yet to get one for myself.. until now! It's actually pretty funny if you think about it.
In our family room, we've been using two blue pillows from when we lived in California and two pillow forms with no case (ah!) for the past year. You can see that situation in this picture here:
The throw pillow in the vintage chair was purchased for a client, but he didn't need it so I kept (and don't worry, paid for it) instead.
Well, if you remember back in this post, I decided to put a Nympheus pillow in our family room. A couple months later.. it's here!
I purchased the pillow (in June, before my spending freeze haha) from Etsy seller Woody Liana. She was so sweet and great to work with, and her construction was flawless.
I got to pick every little detail.. the front and the back pattern, the color of the welt.
I love it!!!
You can see in the above picture the other fabrics I have for this room. Here they are in more detail:
The charcoal Betwixt will be two pillows on my sofa. The striped fabric Liana sent to me because she knew it would go with my new Nympheus pillow!! SO sweet! I'm going to use it for a lumbar on the sofa. The two blues are going to be a front and back of a new blue pillow behind the Nympheus pillow.
As I mentioned during my no-spend month of July, making these pillows is on my to-do list. It will be a free project (I already own all the materials) and I can finally have a room with throw pillows in it! yay!
Still sooo much left to do in this room.. the biggest thing is an art installation above the sofa + chaise. But that will have to wait.
