Fall Pillows in the Great Room

Fall pillows in the great room are a perfect way to introduce autumn to the somewhat neutral room.  When I look at our great room with its neutral walls, furniture, and rugs, I realize the importance that colorful accessories play.  Without them, I think the room would look flat.  That’s the best word I can think of to describe it.  So, it’s very important to me to have some color on the sofa to add some life to the large space.  Last week I showed you the cute fall pillow that I made using linen and painter’s drop cloth.   To add some more color to the sofa area, I made two more pillows that have the navy that I love but also some browns and deep orange.

Fabric Choice for the Pillows

I found some cute fabric at my local fabric shop, and thought it would make some colorful fall pillows.

I actually bought the fabric last spring and just saved it away like a squirrel till just a few weeks ago.  I used this method to make them, and they took less than an hour.

Buffalo Check Pillows, Too


I paired them with two large 24 inch pillows that are a beige buffalo check.  I lucked into those covers one day in Pottery Barn, and they had been reduced by 50 percent.  Of course, I had to buy some more feather inserts, but now I have them to use again and again.

Our house is at its best in the fall, and these pillows just tie everything together.  I brought out the antique rug that Jordan and I selected when we were bicycling through Morocco.  This time I put it at an angle on top of the seagrass rug.  Its colors work very well with the pillows.  We are gradually getting into fall around here, and I am just so excited about my favorite season.


Take care.

    Those pillows!! How perfect with your rug! I am also loving your white couch and chair. I just purchased a white couch and think I HAVE to get my chairs covered in white. I just love switching out pillows!
