With spring well underway I have been thinking about making some new pillows for our living/dining room to brighten and lighten things up a little. One of the least expensive and easiest ways to change the look of a room is through pillows. I will post a simple envelope pillow tutorial really soon, but for now I am gathering together some fabric inspiration. Click on any of the fabrics shown individually below to be taken to their online source.
I already have a couple of fabrics that I plan to start with. A gorgeous yellow and white chevron by Premier Prints from Fabric.com
And, of course, I have leftovers of my beloved corn yellow and white Premier Prints Suzani that you saw in the laundry room curtains.
Now for some additional inspiration… I would love to go with some more blues and greens in the living/dining room area. We are even considering switching our red TV armoire with the turqouise armoire that we chalk painted last fall. It is living in our basement family room right now… but you may see it move upstairs soon (fingers crossed).
At Tonic Living, I am LOVING these faux boix (wood grain) fabrics by Premier Prints (Willow)… in yellow, blue, and green! (Also available in other colours… check it out).
It is just a matter of choosing which faux woodgrain colour to go for!I also love this blue/green ikat print by Braemore called Journey, Aquamarine (also at Tonic Living.)
I also love these new fabrics by Waverly that just arrived at Fabric.com.
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Bekko Home Decor fabrics by Michael Miller at Fabric.com. Some of my favourites are:
Dreaming, Dreaming… now what to choose (can’t have them all, maybe one or two??)
What are you doing at your house to freshen up for spring?
Thanks for reading. And remember, my housie friends, HOME isn’t built in a day. Enjoy the journey!
I am not affiliated with either of these companies and was not reimbursed in any way for pumping up some of their gorgeous products… just wanted to share!
