New DIY Pillows

When my 87-year-old mother visited me this summer, we went to the local fabric shop where I have bought some great remnants to use on DIY pillows.  (I wrote about that here.)  Although they aren’t traditional fall colors, I found two fabrics that made some some nice pillows for a fall look on the great room sofa.

If you’ve been around here a while, then you know I like to decorate with blues, greens, golds, and reds.  I broke that rule this time though and brought in some brown for fall.  You also know that one way I like to change up the look of a room is by switching out the pillows.  I did it here last week in our sunroom.

To add to the mix, I also bought two nice navy pillows to act as the anchors for the other pillows.  I selected the brown and cream fabric remnant because it has big leaves on it – as in big brown fall leaves.

I borrowed this pillow from the new chair in our master bedroom that I tweaked a month or so ago.

I might love it even more on the sofa.

This remnant was great because it had this great detailing that I was able to center on the pillow.  It adds dimension and texture.  All of these remnants were 50 cents each, and I am still using my original painters drop cloth for the backing.  Those two details make changing the pillows frequently such an easy thing to do.

This is another reason why I like having a neutral sofa on a neutral rug in a room with neutral paint.  It is easy to add that punch of color.

 

How do you make small changes in a room?

 

Take care.
