Tag: Throw Pillows
Hey girl…heeeeeey. I almost forgot how to type, since it’s been about 4 thousand days since I last posted. In my defense, I’ve been feverishly gatherin’ up sticks to fancify my new love nest. It’s exhausting, but SO cool to be living in our very own home.
Home ownership hasn’t changed us too much. Except that we’ve become obsessive about saving the floor from scratches and the walls from scuffs. Oh, and we watch HGTV /misc. home shows exclusively and spend our weekends building stuff, like ladders and kitchen islands. We’ve become totally racist against TV shows that don’t involve remodeling, house hunting, and/or interior design. Basically, we are the equivalent of a marriage between the male/female version of Bob Villa and Jeff Lewis – both of whom sit around thinking of stuff they could demo, rebuild and then show off. We are both awesome and weird now.
In any event..I’m back and super excited to get back into writing and bragging about really cool stuff I find. Which brings me to my newest love. Chickity, check yourself before you wreck yourself, because this place is legit:
There’s not much I can say about Nesta other than they are A-W-E-S-O-M-E (I said that in my wanna-be cheerleader voice, fyi). If you have a flair for industrial-esque, artsy, urban/vintage screen and hand-stamped housewares add this place to your fave list and get yer’ shoppin’ on. Once my husband Bob Villa gives the a-okay, I plan on snaggin all of the following:
I’m totally lovin’ on these antique block, hand-stamped, beer-themed towels available here for around $24 bucks (set of 4 – “IPA”, “Stout”, “Pilsner” and “Porter”). And, now I want to start drinking in the afternoon again. Shoot.
SUPER COOL THROW PILLOW:
I love a room that has statement pieces. They don’t have to be super big or super small. Any piece that strikes up a conversation is cool in my book. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these kick-bootie “Style no.23 – Milwaukee Pabst Brewery” pillow available here for $28 bucks. I mean, I’ve never been to Milwaukee or anything, but this design is much fun and I really wanna lay may head on it. Aaaaaaaaaand, I still wanna drink. I forgot to mention that signing the deed instantly made me an alcoholic.
A numbered pillow gives a vintage feel without, having to rest your noggin on an old, ratty-real-life vintage pillow. I like this Magenta “Numbers Collection” one available here for $28 buck-aroons.
Oh, and P.S: Right now they are having a Mother’s Day sale. Just enter code mom2012 for 15% off your order through 5/13. Yeah boy!
Ok. I have to go build something now. Happy home accessory shopping!
I won’t lie. I’d love to throw 3,000 pillows at the lottery dudes for getting my so amped up for a big win and then crushing my dreams, in like 2 seconds flat. BUT, since I’m much more poised and professional than that, I will instead brag about an awesome company I found in my search to deck out my new pad (which, I will be officially moving into in 8 days and around 5 hours or so, FYI). Ladies and gentle men folk, put your hands together for:
Ha ha. LOVE THIS and love the throw pillow designs from Pillow Flight. In the search for awesome accents for our new living room I have come to realize that I have MAJOR style A.D.D.
Alright, let’s be honest. I’m A.D.D., period. But, it has really reared its ugly head recently as I attempt to come up with a design/look/style for our new digs. Cue, Pillow Flight.
I’m in love with this lil’ Etsy shop for a couple reasons:
#1 – Selection. They have a huge selection of stuff to pick from, most of which includes interchangeable styles & patterns. This is particularly handy for a weird like me, because I don’t have to hop from site to site to get a variety. It’s all in one place. Boom.
#2 – Price. Although they are certainly not the cheapest place I’ve come across, the pricing is pretty reasonable for custom pillows (especially if purchasing “pairs”). I mean, have you ever searched for throw pillows online? I’m sorry, but I’m pretty sure I’m not going to sell my soul to the devil any time soon, and I’m certainly not going to sell my soul for a $300 throw pillow either. I have morals, people. I’d rather spend the extra dough on a new outfit or a case of cupcakes or somethin’ like that.
What was I talking about again? Oh, yeah..Pillow Flight, duh. Here’s some of my faves.
This 18×18 decorative pillow cover has a coordinating natural woven backing. It’s double stitched (yey for durability!) and overlocked to prevent the fray. Zip close. This is great for covering a ratty old pillow that you hate.

This guy looks like linen via it’s designer cotton slub fabric by Dwell Studio.

Coordinating Black & White Lattice Pillow available here for $26 bucks.
These 18 x 18 babies are made from Robert Allen Designer home decor fabric. I dig em’.

Happy Pillow Shopping!
