I've been really excited to write this post since the minute I thought of the title. Have you seen movie, Pillow Talk, with Rock Hundson and Doris Day? Doris's character, Jan Morrow, is also an interior designer. How fitting, right?
I'm a big fan of old movies. If you are as well, you"ll love it.
Accent pillows, are one of my favorite ways to accessorize almost any space in a house. They just add life and feeling, "you are home".
The are a fun way to welcome different seasons, to bring color, mood and style into your home. Changing accent pillows is the easiest and most cost-efficient way to refresh a room.
But not all pillows are the same. There is a little trick to make them pretty so that your room looks more "designer" than "frumpy".
Make sure that your pillow fabric is designed for upholstery-grade. It will hold up better and last longer. Most fabric stores have upholstery fabrics, although they may not always have good selection.
On line stores like Etsy have tons of accounts that sell beautiful fabrics as well as ready-made pillow covers.
Of course, if you are local to UT, then you must check out my gal Katie at The Sewing Nerd. She creates beautiful pillows.
