You wouldn’t think a simple pillow would make such an impact. I recently found my bedroom in a state I didn’t want anymore. I had painted the walls a darker terra cotta when we moved in, but was so sick of how dark it made the room feel. I definitely wanted a change. Something neutral and modern and that I could change things up by just adding a different quilt or pillow or lampshade. I don’t like being stuck with a certain decorating scheme.
So I daringly went and picked out my gray wall color, against my husbands wishes, haha. I had to prime and paint, but it wasn’t too bad. Emily hung out with me while I painted, she pointed out where all the ants were crawling along the walls and I gladly got rid of them – one by one (luckily they’re gone now but I was getting worried). In the end I LOVE it and am so glad I made the change. Now the room is open to possibilities!
So the first thing I thought of after starting a gigantic quilt (and am definitely not ready to finish it) was to make something simple. A pillow. It was a quick and fun project that didn’t take long, but really made my night! After I finished it I was skipping and jumping all the way up to bed I was so excited. Funny how that works.
I used a king size pillow (one I scored on clearance at target) and Sew Katie Did‘s invisible zipper tutorial again. The fabrics are Alexander Henry Laurel Canyon in Pink and Heath (a home dec weight, one I spotted here). Love it!
And here’s another gratuitous shot of my bedroom, hopefully I’ll be able to get a night stand and maybe a cool chair to put in there someday….oh and a headboard would be nice… (hey! at least I have pictures on the walls!)
