The covers we've had on our throw pillows in the living room have been in our house since we were married, almost five years ago. I thought it was time for a change. Using the green fabric leftover from this project, along with some other coordinating fabrics I "happened" to pick up, combined with some inspiration photos from online, I have four new pillows on our couches. Well... they look brand new, at least. I can't ever get myself to buy new pillow forms while I still have perfectly good ones on the couch.
This first picture is from my sister-in-law's blog
and here is my version:
The last three inspiration pillows are all from Anthropologie
We like things a little off-center in our house...
and a close-up of the cummerbund pleats that took me WAY longer than they should have:
They all have envelope closures so they're 1. easier to clean and 2. easier to replace the covers when I get bored of them. I think they bring a little color and whimsy to the room, if that's not too cliche to say. Aren't we all ready for spring to really be here, though?
