After moving last year, we made the decision to start fresh. Being influenced by all of the Real People Renos, design tips and new features like Creative Spaces, we got rid of most of our existing furniture and attempted to start achieving some sort of “look” in our living space. I took a chance on revamping a major item — my couch. The couch has great bones, but needs some work. It’ll be a neutral colour when finished. I want to take some advice from Sarah Richardson and use my pillows to accent the color scheme in the room. Sure there are tons of them in store, but I realize after going through some of our Flickr members’ posts that making my own pillows is a more personal touch.
Create, Illustrate, Fabricate
I was already impressed by blancucha‘s white pillow with my favorite rustic colored buildings, but after scrolling through his gallery, his work as a Madrid-based illustrator and designer was revealed. His pillows are not only a handmade, but also custom designed.
For a Friend
On the left, PinkFriday not only loves HGTV but also loves to share her bright and cheerful color scheme with guests. On the right, Michelle Sews had a great time making this pillow for her friend Terri.
