Roux. Pillows. June 16th , 2017.
The first thing you`ll want to do is think about what color and type of fabric you want to use. Look at your other room decor and take into consideration the overall color scheme. Do you want your pillows to complement what you already have or stand out as a bold accent?
Like the story of the mouse asking for a cookie, and then proceeding to hop from one project to another only to come back around to the cookie, I immediately decided I needed new home throw pillows. I resorted to the web to browse options and was simply floored by the endless choices - bright colors, shiny metallics, black and white patterned throw pillows everywhere. There were pillows in stripes, pastels, patterned with flowers or nature prints, circle pillows, bolster pillows, and pillows covered in dots. Yellow pillows, gray pillows, purple pillows and even pillows covered in what looked like shag carpeting.
For years, I only ever had one set of throw pillows for my home. They matched the furniture on which they sat and they stayed there until I changed furniture. In fact, they probably came with the furniture. Those pillows became invisible. There they sat, day after day, in the same spot doing their same old thing. I took them for granted and did not realize what an opportunity I was missing.
One day, my oldest son - still a toddler at the time - left quite a bright, orange Cheetos stained hand print on a tan throw pillow. First, food - any food - is not allowed to leave my kitchen table in the hands of any of my boys. I have never been made of either money or time and I like to make cleaning as easy as possible so food and drink are only allowed in one room of my house. I am, however, one of those regular mothers with only one pair of eyes. I must admit I wasn`t always paying the best of attention and I would suddenly find that one of my little troopers or another had marked their territory with a swipe of grape jelly on the wall or a swish of peanut butter across a piece of furniture. Or, with a Cheetos hand print on my throw pillow.
The material you choose for your new pillow isn`t the only decision you will have to make; size is something you will also have to consider. Feather pillows come in many sizes and many people make the decision of size based on the size of their bed. If you have a queen size you would also choose queen sized pillows, just like for your children who probably have a twin size bed you would choose a small standard size pillow. A good feather pillow of any size will assure you a good night sleep, and help you to wake up feeling rested.
