blue + white lumbar pillow love

Mark D. Sikes

I have the itch to change things up around here so bad.  I blame Instagram and the fact that I've been too exhausted / busy with my littles the last nine months to do anything more than a little zhushing of my corner built-ins, but change is good and so I'm going to start small with some new pillows for my living room.  First up is lumbar pillows for the two chairs.  I'm so excited to bring a different shade of blue and white to my linen pieces for the warmer months because, let's face it, there's no other color combination that screams summer.  As for my beloved Robert Allen pillows on my sofa now, I'm too attached to part with them so I'll be relocating them to the new guest room upstairs! 

Etsy is always my first stop for budget-friendly pillows; I used to source fabric by the yard and then have my seamstress make them for me in year's past but, in the end, it actually ended up being more expensive and time consuming, so now it's Etsy all the way!   Spark Modern is always my first stop for pillows and, in this case, I didn't have to look any further as I'm obsessed with pretty much each and every one of the blue and white lumbar pillows.  Here are a few picks I'm loving lately.  Now to just narrow it down (I want them ALL!)

Happy Monday!


shop the manor + save 30%

A few weeks ago, on a particularly difficult night in the throws of teething (and somewhere around eight or nine wakeups), I had just gotten Baby Girl back to sleep and, unable to sleep myself at that point, resorted to Instagram (naturally) when a gorgeous champagne and cream sequined chevron table runner caught my eye.  A few clicks later and I discovered that one of my oldest friends had launched an online boutique a few weeks back!  I may be a day late in learning this exciting news, but I'm certainly not a dollar short...I'm thrilled to introduce you to Manor, home to some of the chicest home decorative accessories, lighting, fabulous accent furniture pieces, luxe pillows, cozy throws and much, much more!

3 great Etsy sources for throw pillows

When it comes to giving your living room, bedroom, porch or patio a quick pick-me-up without dropping a ton of dough, throw pillows are a decorator's best friend!  I'm super fortunate to have THE BEST seamstress right around the corner for me (who not only bumps my client's projects to the top of her mile-long waiting list, but always have banana bread for me when I pick up!)  Lately, though, it's been a little more affordable - and time saving - to order custom designer pillows for clients from a few different Etsy sellers - below are three in particular who have knocked the socks off me with their selection of designer fabrics and amazing quality.  Here are a few samplings from each shop - happy shopping!
