…quick fix series: pillows & inserts

My last quick fix is fairly self explanatory. Paint gives you instant gratification. Pillows are the next best thing.

Step one is to go and buy a few – I’d say at least 4 – pillow inserts. I’ve found the cheapest ones at JoAnn Fabric and Ikea. You can also find them on Amazon & at Pottery Barn.


If you can sew this is your place to shine. Order some fabric online and go to town. I am not a sewer, but even I can fumble my way to a pillow. If you don’t have time to sew then most retail shops sell pillow covers. You can check out your PB shop, but if you want something more interesting then do a search on Etsy.

I do love this one from PB. A pattern like this can be timeless.


I, of course, have my favorite designers.

Jessica from Alelier be makes some beautiful covers from old European grain sacks. I bought these from her for my family room chairs.


You have also see Helkat Designs all over my home. Many of you have asked about the fighting hares pillow. Here you go!


Best part is when the seasons change or you are ready to refresh, all you do is take your cover off and replace. Store them in your linen closet and you can always use them again!
