Hey friends, what home accessories do you like? For me – accessorizing means pillows! I love adding an unusual throw pillow here and there (to the great chagrin of my husband!). Sometimes it’s all about a pop of color. Other times I’m attracted to an interesting pattern.
Today I’m featuring throw pillows that accessorize my living room, although they have a tendency to move around from room to room depending on my whim (lol). Our home is decorated in a minimalist, somewhat mid-century modern style with a grey color palette. So any accessory I add must fit the room’s clean simple vibe or it will tip the scale into the category of “cluttered”.
My pillows are printed with the pattern “Edgy Black and White” from my Textures and Patterns Collection. The design flows across the surface organically, lending an intriguing element to a simple pillow. And of course the black and white print coordinates beautifully with the muted tones of the room.
Here’s a little secret – “Edgy” was created from a photograph of ice crystals! No kidding! One chilly winter morning a few years ago I walked into our guest bedroom and saw the prettiest ice crystals spreading across the window pane. Wow! I grabbed my camera and snapped a few images before the sun peaked around the corner of the house, melting nature’s etch-a-sketch artwork. Although I had no idea how I would use the photographs, capturing that moment of frozen patterns inspired me to create several digital designs based on the images.
(FYI – besides pillows, I also have a cute mini skirt and a chiffon scarf printed with “Edgy Grey”. But that’s another blog post!)
You can find “Edgy” in three versions: Black and White, Turquoise and Grey. Wouldn’t this pattern perfectly accessorize a bedroom as a mix-and-match set of five or six pillows scattered across a bed?
