Inspiration can be found anywhere, sometimes in the most unlikely places.
I owe this week’s inspiration to a good friend. C has many passions, but, by her own admission, decorating is not one of them. Even so, over the past couple weeks, she made simple changes that had a big impact. She cleared a bit of clutter and added colorful pottery to a couple shelves, added new throw pillows, and replaced a “well-loved” ottoman. The room looks fantastic.
My friend reminded me that the feel of a room is in the details. Changing throw pillows is a fast, inexpensive and very effective way to add a new color, change decor with the seasons, or just have a little decorating fun.
Now inspired, I set off to create a couple pillows. These red fabric scraps were plucked from a plastic storage bin and put to work. There weren’t any pieces large enough to cover a whole pillow, so they ended up as a bit of patchwork. Love how they turned out…even got a compliment from my better half. Well, he asked, “Can we keep those?” That’s a compliment, right???
Also found these fun blue scraps and vintage tea towel…more pillows to come.
