If you have followed StoneGable for awhile you will know that I L-O-V-E pillows! I really feel that I have a bit of an addiction to them. When I see them in a store or online or on a blog my heart races and I get that familiar pins and needles feeling! So, changing up pillows for each new season is something I look forward to with great anticipation! I’m starting by sharing with you the neutral, shop-the-house pillows for the summer. And I can’t help but show you some of summer’s best decorative pillows I’ve found around the web! Pssssst… I’ve ordered a few of them too!
This summer my pillows are taking a distinctively neutral turn. No pops of contrasting blacks. No summer prints. Just calm neutrals.
My living room will be going through a few changes this summer so I wanted to keep my pillows more subdued!
Most of us would think that mixing neutral pillows is easy. But, it’s not as easy as it looks. Neutral pairings need a balance of tones and textures and trims and whites and other subdued colors.
They need to work together to create a serene look that is not boring or too stiff!
Texture and detail becomes important when decorating with all neutral pillows. This little embroidered pillow is full of both!
The caramel colored trim on a white linen pillow adds another layer of texture to the pillow grouping. I think this trim has a distinctively summery feel, don’t you?
It’s amazing what a little bit of trim can do! Look for pillows that have textured and interesting trim.
Many times when I arrange pillows I like one pillow to be a stripe or check even when arranging a neutral color palette. These pillows add pattern without being overtly distracting. My favorites are pillow ticking and buffalo checks.
I’m using a great neutral buffalo check in between two solid pillows to keep the neutrals from looking boring!
Now let’s look at my summer’s best pillow picks from around the web!
If you love color and an upscale island feel how about this BATIK FISH PILLOW. I love love love this happy pillow!
Of course, nautical motifs are very popular in the summer. And so are beach, fish and anything ocean inspired! This is a gorgeous NAUTILUS SHELL pillow!
Blue is always a popular home decor color but this summer it’s gone viral! I think this pillow is so interesting. The NEVE pillow look so fresh and crisp with updated graphics!
