Refresh Your Home For Spring With New Pillows

Blue and white patterned pillow for spring living room decor | design by Randi Garrett

We're loving this pillow combination that designer Randi Garrett chose for her living room featuring (from left to right) our Mughal Flower Monsoon Blue and Green, Tika Dot Blue, and Chinois Fret Sky. The pillows instantly transformed her beige sofa and brightened up her living room. The overall feeling is elegant yet relaxed and inviting. 

Pillows shown on the chairs are the Wide Stripe French Blue in size 22x22.

How to Use a Pillow as the Catalyst for a Room's Color Palette

When you're decorating a room, sometimes it's hard to know where to even begin. Next time you're stuck, try this: find a multi-colored pillow you love, then use it as the catalyst for your color palette.  Let's take a look at how interior designer Sita Montgomery did this with our Hot House Spark pillow for this beautiful living room.

If you look closely, you'll see that the pillow has several colors that can be pulled out, including blue, teal, red-orange, and green. 

For a cohesive look, it's ideal to use the "Rule of 3" and repeat each color in a palette three times or more within a room. Sita did exactly this. Let's break it down:

She repeated the blue color with a deep blue accent wall, art, a Zig Zag Navy pillow, and blue rug.

The red-orange is repeated with a throw blanket draped over the sofa, a Rust Velvet pillow, and art. 

The green shows up in the green spotted pillow, floral arrangement and greenery.  green living room decor details and accents

The teal color is repeated with a teal throw, teal geometric print pillow, and rug.

We could keep going with some of the other colors but you probably get the idea. I think you'd agree that the way everything ties together is so visually satisfying. 

Hope this inspires your own decor!

The room is eclectic and bold, yet sophisticated. It brings together the things she loves and celebrates her maximalist sensibility.

By incorporating classic details and sticking to a mostly black and white palette, Veronica expertly layered various patterns and textures in a way that looks cohesive. These two photos show other parts of the room not shown in the magazine:

5 Tips to Keep Peonies Fresh

How to Keep Cut Peony Flowers Fresh Longer | Arianna Belle Blog 

Are peonies your favorite flower? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Mine too.

With their season being so short, below are 5 quick tips to enjoy every last peony bunch as long as possible.

1. Buy them as closed buds  - At the market, choose the ones that are as closed as possible.  It's tempting to get the pretty ones that have already fully bloomed, but those will only last a few days in your home, and they're more likely to get damaged during transit - petals falling off, etc. Buying them as buds requires a bit of patience, however it usually doesn't take long for them to open up. If you want to help them along once they're safe in your home, you can put them in warm water or a warm location.

2. Before placing into a vase, make sure to remove any leaves from the lower part of the stems so that they're not submerged in the water. This prevents them from rotting.

    3. Keep them away from direct sunlight - I learned this the hard way. I made the mistake of leaving an arrangement right next to a window that received a lot of direct sun, and came back to find out they had drastically lost their color and some petals had started falling off.

      4. Store them in the fridge at night -  If you have the space, put them in your fridge. Doing so will prolong their life.

        5. Trim the stems and replace the water every day or every other day - Cut the stems at a diagonal for maximum water absorption. Use cold water or drop an ice cube or two into the vase.
