This week’s Spotlight focuses on a favorite decor item: pillows! Between hooked and embroidered, wool and cotton, you are sure to find a pillow (or pillows) that fit your style and your comfort needs. These five pillows are great for spring decorating, with themes relating to animals, gardens, and farm life; but they will also fit in with your decor and home’s style throughout the year, giving you design and comfort options that last.
Country Style and Comfort
This Dianna Swartz design combines the classic look of check with a representative farm scene that looks great with almost all decor. It can be used as an accent piece among other check furnishings, or can be added to a collection of farm or domestic animal themed decor for a complete look. The hooked wool and cotton velvet back make this a comfortable pillow no matter where you place it: on a bench, a bookshelf, or on your sofa as a cozy head rest.
If you have a smaller chair, shelf, or bench on which an average-sized pillow is just too big, but you still want to maintain a unique, country look, our Farm Fresh Pillow is an excellent option. The simple color palette allows this pillow to complement any decor, while adding a hint of comfort to any surface in your home.
This rich red cottage will bring a cozy, friendly feeling to your already warm home. Teresa Kogut is behind this design, which you can combine with other hooked Red House Collection items to create a cohesive look throughout your entire home; or, just use the pillow as a vibrant accent piece in your living room. The crow and flower accents add natural elements to this folk-artsy furnishing – elements that you will love admiring time and time again.
Stephanie Stouffer designed the Tabby Cat & Bird Pillow, which is made up of soft yellow and simple brown colors, making it an instant classic among your own home decor. The friendly bird and cat are wonderful additions to a living room or reading nook; the hooked wool and cotton velvet back create a comfortable spot on which you and your guests can rest.
These pillows are a little more novel in their designs, but provide the same wonderful decor options for any room of your home as do our other pillows. The Vintage Vegetable Pillow would look great in breakfast nook near the kitchen, or in a mudroom that leads out into a garden. This pillow also gives you slightly more design options, as it reverses to neutral-colored stripes on back which can be accented with your own home decor.
Our Boston’s Best Cream Pie Pillow is more vibrant in color, but will give any room a little more personality when combined with a similar color scheme. Artist Ken Bailey designed the image in the style of vintage advertisements, so this pillow would even look great next to your antique treasures or vintage decor.
