with the influx of autumn inspired magazines, all styled with cozy looking blankets, cable knit pillows, and crock pots galore it is officially beginning to feel like fall. aside from the (still) 100 degree days, we can’t help but look forward to holiday decor and hot chocolate by the fire.
today my inspiration board made the transition from summer brights to fall, with cooler colors and warmer looking rooms. loving lots of texture and repeat patterns in the gray and turquoise palette, perfectly curated by west elm and sur la table (oddly enough). my wall looks something like this…

it would seem we have been searching for the perfect throw pillows to complete our living room look for quite some time. failing to find what we were hoping for in the way of stripes and rustic vintage i finally decided to sew some myself.
we picked up a couple of yards of lightweight stripe fabric and some lovely burlap looking linen at Joann’s over the weekend. despite the fact that it has been over 100 degrees all summer long, monday it decided to rain. rainy days are perfectly acceptable sewing days. so i used this super helpful tutorial for reference and within an hour we had two pretty new pillows.
i think i might make dozens more. in every fabric. for every holiday.
