Pillow Love: Get the Look for Less

I’ve admired the beautiful Sheesha pillows ever since I first saw ‘em in the living room below. Unfortunately though the price tag on these babies is a bit more than I am able and willing to shell out for a pillow. John Robshaw sells a 20×20 version (pictured below right) for $200 (each!) and Jayson Home and Garden sells ‘em for $250 for the 20×20 version and $345 for the 26×26 version (yikes!).

Recently I was excited to find a few pillows that have a similar look for much much less. West Elm sells the Bijoux Dots Pillow (below left) for $34.00, and Etsy seller The Home Centric sells the White Mirrors Throw Pillow (below right) for $33.20 as well as the Light Beige Reflections Throw Pillow for $33.20 to $39.90 (price depending on size).

DIY Artwork: Tonal Concentric Squares

Given my love for the pillows mentioned in this post its no surprise I’m drawn to this artwork:

It’s a similar idea; tonal concentric squares. What I love is that the color combos are endless and it’s an easy DIY paint or Photoshop project. Great way to inject color into a space!

BTW you can find pillows similar to the ones in the above mentioned post over at Jonathan Adler:

The cool thing? The colors are customizable!

Bolster Pillows

Bolster pillows are a nice alternative {or addition} to using common square/rectangular pillows. They look great in simple solid colored fabrics which don’t detract attention from their cylindrical shape.

Here they make an appearance in the loveliest of rooms, looking fabulous on the sofas and chaises:
