My $8 Ikea pillow covers were the perfect color match for our living room. I already have have a number of feather and down pillow inserts, so it was nice to only pay for the pillow cover. More later why our living colors are challenging. I’ll apologize now for the crappy photos from my Blackberry.
Here’s what they look like in place on the vintage bamboo sofa: The rougher texture adds visual interest against the smoothness of the sofa fabric and the lushness of the berry velvet throw pillow. I like that they’re silk, but they have more texture than the usual smooth texture that dupioni silk imparts. Now, our biggest challenge will be keeping our two Grrr Girls off of them.
