One of our more popular photos on Facebook was the one above. Who doesn't love a big leather sectional (if you have the space for it). Our client already owned the sofa, but something just never seemed finished. She opted for some color changes in her living room, and purchased the Hickory Chair ottoman. Now, how to add the dark blue with some aqua and not look disjointed.......sounds like a job for some oversized throw pillows.

|Smaller scale plaid with a navy and a small stripe of the aqua|
|Large scale plaid with brown, navy and aqua|
Now that our fabrics are chosen, deciding on the appropriate sizes was another important factor. The large sectional needed larger than normal pillows to take up more space, and add a sense of coziness. It was decided that 22" would be a good size for this particular sofa, and since there was enough room to spread them out, we had them all done in the same size. If your sofa is smaller, you might need to do a couple of sizes so when the pillows are pushed together, you can still see the ones behind the front pillow (stair-step sizes).
The client had a large rectangular pillow purchased that would look great right in the middle! Now, go back and look at the photo--can you imagine that sofa without the throw pillows?
Changing the look of a room is as easy as throwing a few new pillows in the mix. Whether they are custom made or from our ready-made pillows, enjoy the quick and easy decorative changes you can make with pillows!
I DO love pillows.....even the princess Posie cat has her own pillow to sleep on....leopard print faux fur of course!!!
It's been cold here and we enjoyed our new candles all weekend. I put one of the small ones in the tart warmer and we burned the bigger ones (different each day :) in the kitchen. They are all wonderful!!
Take care, stay warm, and blessings to you as you prepare shop and home for the holidays!
Thanks Jackie! It is hard to beat those Trapp candles. I'll bet Posie cat is nice and warm on her faux fur pillow!
