pillow talk


It is no secret that I love pillows! In fact, before I share some of my latest favourite pillows (so many fabulous motifs, prints, and patterns to show you!), I would like to take a minute to tell you why I think the humble throw pillow is, indeed, an extremely versatile accessory.

Kerry's Top 10 Reasons to ADORE Pillows 

  1. Pillows are small and light (i.e. easily stored if necessary). 
  2. Pillows have the ability to pull an otherwise dis-jointed space together (through colour, texture, or pattern). 
  3. They are available in a multitude of shapes, sizes, materials, colours, prints, and textures
  4. Pillows add instant warmth and a layer of softness to a space. 
  5. Pillows are available in a wide range of price points (from economical ready-mades, to pricier custom-mades). 
  6. They are the most highly-coveted items during family movie night (i.e. they serve a practical function in addition to an aesthetic one). 
  7. Adorable non-human members of the family seem to covet them as well (not sure if this is a pro or a con?) 
  8. Pillows can reflect ANY style or mood imaginable. 
  9. They can easily be changed to reflect the season. 
  10. They are just plain PRETTY!

And here are some current patterns, textures, and motifs that I have been seeing lately: 

And I could go on and on.....There are hundreds of gorgeous pillows available today in a rainbow of colours. Hmmm...where do we start?

Here are a few of my favourite places to find affordable, contemporary, and just plain pretty, pillows: 

Until next time,
