Pillow Talk

A friend of mine came to me with a question about her Master Bedroom;

She is not yet ready to completely re-do the space, but wants to do a few little things to spruce it up and make it feel more hers.

She recently ordered this awesome bedding from Kohls which is super chic.

Since it has been my mecca for pillows, I pointed her in the direction of West Elm, as all of their pillows ship for free.

I found a few that I thought could work for her.

Finally, I checked out CB2, Crate and Barrel’s more modern (and affordable) line, where I have found some awesome throws for more modern spaces.

I found some pillows that were awesome, but a little out there:

Which is why this last pillow is my favorite. I’d put the one she bought from Etsy in the middle and have one of these on either side, making it super crisp and clean. A calm oasis for two busy parents with two busy kids.
