Pillow Love and a GIVEAWAY



As it pertains to decorating, I like detail....lots of detail and I love pillows...lots of pillows.    I love it when the two marry and a very well designed, detailed pillow is born.  Pillows with trim, pillows made of more than one fabric, pillows with fringe, pillows with beadwork, pillows with embroidery and the list goes on and on.   
My bed is piled with loads of decorative pillows.   Years ago my brother in law was visiting and took a nap on our bed.  When he got up and came out to the living room he remarked, "You have to have a degree in interior design to make your bed."    Pillows make chairs and sofas and beds look so comfy and cozy...and they're  perfect places to add dimension and texture to your decor'.


One of my favorite places to buy pillows and pillow covers is Designs by Derilyn.
Derilyn (isn't that a pretty name?) sent me a few pillows and has very generously offered a $40 gift certificate to one of the Nancy's Daily Dish readers.  Derilyn's Etsy shop showcases a wide variety of her custom pillow designs, handpainted pillows, pillow covers and furnishings.


I've got three styles of Derilyn's pillows.   The Hula pillow
is on the right  (and far left where I've turned it upside down) and features heavyweight tan faux suede and sage fuzzy soft squared texture pattern fabric, with coordinating tassel trim , and the Chichi Sage pillow on the left is an elegant patchwork design of sage, olive, ivory, sable and tan fabrics, with an ivory bullion trim and clear beaded fringe.

Derilyn designed this sage and ivory silk with crinkled taffeta pillow It has long beaded fringe and gathered on one side.  Isn't this gorgeous?


 Derilyn has her own brand and each pillow is tagged with her design:

We have a large, antique Country French armoire/bookcase in our family room and keep some of our books here.  I've got two carved chairs in front and a small wine table.  I piled my pillows on the chairs with books on the shelves and stored underneath.  I placed a burled wood tray on the wine table along with a gorgeous white allium wreath from Decorator's Friend, a crackle glass decanter in olive and some vintage etched roses cordial glasses.


Designs by Derilyn fits my ideal for pillow making as she combines artistry with style and has an eye for detail.

    the pillows are absolutely stunning and what a wonderful giveaway.
    I have my own pillow addiction going and I think the 'pillow police' in this house would get very stern with me if another pillow showed up. LOL
    I wanted to thank you for for your very kind comment on my blog. I greatly appreciate it.
    Hugs,
