We’ve been working on our bedroom recently: painted the walls, hung curtains/valance, built and hung floating night stands and finally got our new duvet cover! We bought a white duvet cover so we can display our beautiful wedding quilt that my incredibly talented cousin made, plus it’s easier to clean (‘ello bleach!). However, I wanted some more colour/pattern on the bed and remembered that my Mom had given me some beautiful vintage fabric: thus leading to a new pillow!
The lovely fabric from my Mom is a Greeff fabric, Tennessee Nightingale from Golden Odyssey, printed in England in the 1970’s. I just love the colours and the sweet little birds.
Our Lake Life has an easy tutorial on how to make an envelope back pillow (check it out here). My pillow form was 16″x16″-speaking of pillow forms, they are incredibly expensive. One of my girlfriends (check her out at Beautifully Contained) suggested buying the discounted ugo pillows from your favourite home-style store. So that’s what I did. Thrifty friends are the best.
It didn’t take that long to throw it all together and I just love it!
I need to find a couple more simple patterns in the same colour scheme to round out the throw-pillows. As you can tell, I’m loving the blue/yellow/green colour scheme.
