I have fallen in love with the FRENCH NORDIC LOOK, so I am going to start to incorporate this design into my Romantic Farmhouse. You will see some of this look a little at a time.
Pillows, pillows, pillows, are so easy to make and it adds a new seasonal flare to your house.
Here are some new fabrics that I choose, all from Walmart for less that $5.00 a yard. I can usually make 2 pillows out of 1 yard, depending on the size of course.
I also will show how I placed the pillows according to size and color.
I started out with a 20″x 20″ pillow in a plan beige muslin pillow cover. I made 2 and put one on each end of the sofa.
Then I made one of the same but with 2 ties at the top, I had a piece of vintage embroidery that I sewed around the edges then glued on with fabric glue. I set this pillow in the center. Always put the larger sizes toward the back.
Here are 2 18″ x 18″ pillows that I covered in black and beige check. With a darling beige ruffle on them. I placed them next to the muslin pillows.
I was so excited when I found this next lovely fabric. The colors are of black, deep purples, gold, and olive green.
I made 2 pillows one 18″ x 18″ and the other a lumbar pillow for a different shape I didn’t want it to get boring with all the same sizes. I placed the 18″ x 18″ size pillow in front of the checked one and the middle beige pillow. The lumbar pillow at the end next to the beige pillow at the end.
Now for the final pillows. I made 2 different sizes but the same fabric. I found this great soft pink rose pattern and made a 15″ x 15″ pillow with a beige ruffle. I placed it at the center of the sofa next to the purple flowered pillow. Then a small pillow 15″ x 12″, sitting at the end of the sofa.
Then I made a deep wine, and gold pillow and placed it right in the center. I think that they turned out very lovely. All of these pillows have pillow forms that I recover season after season. I just simply replace them when I get the feeling. LOL
Along with recovering the pillows I made a new curtain for my work bench to match the new season, out of the muslin fabric that I had. I really like the frayed edges so I didn’t hem it. Now I’m already to add more color to my home for Fall. See you next time!
It’s all LOVERLY!
