I've done a little sprucing up of the place lately, including making these new pillows for the living room.
I'm not in love with our couch at all but it was free and I'm actually glad because I don't worry so much when my 3 year old spills something on them. It is a grayish sage green color and I find it challenging to coordinate colors with it.
When I first saw the Echo fabric collection by Lotta Jansdotter I knew it would be great for home decor.
The little pillow goes on the chair (which is a really nice light chocolate brown scored on Craigs List). I made it entirely using the Standing Stones print in heather.
For the big pillow I knew I wanted to piece a design together and I eventually came up with alternating strips, left and right, on a Kona Coal background. You'll see Alexander Henry "Heath" in this one too.
I definitely wanted to be able to remove the covers from the pillow forms so I installed invisible zippers on each. Thankfully, with Rachel's wonderful tutorial, it was a breeze!
I LOOOOVE how these came out and they make me smile every time I walk into the living room!
