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!


spring pillow picks

When it comes to color combinations for spring, I don't think There isn't another more perfect than blue and green.  It's fresh and crisp and reminiscent of all the new growth right outside our door and it's a great way to bring the outdoors inside for the change in season.  Spark Modern is one of my favorite sources for affordable throw pillows in the most gorgeous designer fabrics - I just sourced a pair of these beauties for the living room in a client's beach house and can't wait to see how they look installed!  They also have a pretty good variety of pillows in blue and green so I thought I'd round up some that I'm loving lately.  Any and all of these would look amazing on neutral furniture and would add just the right pop of color and texture!  Be sure to check out the rest of their selection here:

If there's a better way to give your living room, bedroom or porch an inexpensive pick-me-up than by changing out your throw pillows, I have no idea what it could possibly be.  You'd be surprised how much a 20x20 inch square of gorgeous fabric can completely change the feel of a room!  Etsy seller Spark Modern is one of my go-to shops for a great selection of beautiful designer fabric pillows at unbeatable prices - many clients have ordered from them and they never disappoint!  Most designer fabrics are available to the trade only, and for those that aren't, there is usually a minimum yardage requirement, so a pillow in your favorite designer fabric for less than $100 is a steal!  If you're looking to add a pop of color or pattern to your decor this spring without dropping a lot of dough, check out their selection here.  Here are a few of my favorites:
