I’ve been on the lookout for more pillows for the sectional in the family room for awhile. I’ve had a hard time picking something out because I’m afraid something with too much pattern or color will compete with the oversized prints on the wall. I’m certain there’s a way to do it, but it would require someone far more talented than me to put it together.
It’s difficult to tell in this photo, but the lighter colored pillows are actually in the same fabric as my striped background image. The lighting blew them out in the photo, but in actuality it looks much more like the stripes you see here.
I recently came across pillows on etsy made out of Shumacher’s Betwixt fabric in Biscuit/Ivory.
This particular pillow is from etsy seller NelsonDesign. I think the color of this fabric would tie into the gold tones of the prints I have. I ordered a swatch of the fabric, and it is a high quality linen – very lovely. I’m trying to decide if I should make them myself, order them from NelsonDeisgn to save myself the hassle, or order the fabric and have them made locally. A tip I learned from Eddie Ross over the weekend was that many dry cleaners will sew pillows for a fraction of the price of seamstresses, and they’re just as capable.
I’ll price it out and keep you posted!
