One day recently, I was at a friend's house consulting on a living room reinvention (maximum change for minimal cash) and I spent some time extolling the virtues of throw pillows and their ability to pull together a room through pattern, update a couch or chair, or just generally add visual interest to a space that's spare on accessories. So on that note, let me share some of my faves from this season:
As the Fourth of July approaches and I reflect in my renewed sense of pride in our country, I'm loving the American Pillow Cover Collection from Restoration Hardware, particularly that little boudoir Flag pillow cover.
Because there are so many unique, affordable options for pillows from major retailers, as well as local artisans through sites like Etsy, I wouldn't normally advocate for a spending a ton of hard-earned cash. But after catching a glimpse of John Robshaw's new collection which includes a series of stunning handpainted pillows, I'm advocating. If you can spare it, I support it...and feel free to pick up the Painted Stork for me while you're at it.
