Etsy Love Oh My Pillow

Etsy Love for Oh My Pillow!

By

Yesterday I posted up some Trina Turk pillows on the board for Kate’s Cottage Do Over, but realistically we can’t be dropping two hundred and fifty bones per toss pillow. I know it’s what we SAY we should do, but y’all – I don’t really do that. Not yet. Here are a few totally affordable pillows for Kate’s space that caught my eye today. Oh My Pillow chooses really great fabrics, her product appears to be well made – and it’s totally more in the price range that doesn’t make you think – oh I’ll just buy the fabric and sew em up myself. (Cause I never actually will do the sewing.) All pillows found on Etsy, here.

Meanwhile, I’m having trouble even picking out the inspiration images. Here’s what I’ve gathered thus far. Looks like I’m more interested in books than tchotkes… but I have a lot of tchotke to factor into the project. Would love your suggestions.

Heffe House: Bringing in Color with Accessories

By

I’m happy to report that my initial post about the Heffe House went over quite well with the dude. As mentioned in that introduction, he is diametrically opposed to a turquoise couch.  Color is at the crux of our “push and pull.” If you are like Heffe…….. and hesitant to commit to color, here are a few examples of rooms that look colorful and lively, but aren’t packing a ton of investment. Accessories aren’t long-term, so its much easier to pack big pops of hue without a) breaking the bank….. or b) giving the faint of heart an anxiety attack when you ask them to drop $2500 on a deep teal velvet couch. The first room comes from Sarah’s suggestion to check out the Ruffalo home that was featured in Domino in 2009. She has an exceptional memory. But even I remember that she found some of the real estate photos from…
