all things pillows and a GIVEAWAY

I am seriously obsessed with pillows (I have a gazillion pillows in my collection and might have a problem) which is why I have decided to dedicate today's post to all things PILLOWS! 

In my opinion pillows are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to decorate, accessorize and even change the look and feel of a room. I have all kinds of unique and colorful pillows and covers on hand and stored away. I like to change pillows with the seasons or even when I need to freshen up a room. I have put together a few SIMPLE tips and my favorite ways to use pillows in decorating. I am not a decorator or an expert, I just have a serious passion for pillows! 



I love getting creative and making my own pillows- here are a few of my favorite pillow tutorials that I've shared over the years.



While I love to make pillows I also buy them from all kinds of stores (Target, Cost Plus, Urban Outfitters) but my favorite place to shop for unique pillows is on Etsy. My #1 resource (see examples above) is the shop Festive Home Decor- I've purchased more covers than I care to share! Our home is full of colorful covers from Festive Home Decor so imagine my excitement when shop owner Michelle contacted me to see if I wanted to offer a giveaway AND a 20% discount to my readers! It was a no brainer for me!

So here you go-

Festive Home Decor is giving away a $75 store credit to one person

I'll draw one name and announce later this week.

AND

I've never been the first one to comment on your site before! I am up early for a day off and a trip to NYC with my friend. I don't use pillows because I have 2 cats and just figure it is one more thing to get hair on, but if I can frequently change the covers, it might be a nice way to freshen up a drab room.

I was never creative with my home, as I spend all of my money on my supplies to create, but pillows may be a start. Thank you for the give away.

You look great! I love these type of updates

tiff said...

On my bare couches! Thanks!

Adrienne said...

I love pillows too. I tried to create a little nook in the living room with some big floor pillows. I only have 3 right now, I really could use some more to spice it up!

Pat said...

The pillows on my studio couch tell a personal story....Florida, Maryland and North Carolina Catstudio pillows (states in which I have lived), a large creamy white pillow with a black number 5 embroidered on the front (I am one of 5 sisters), and two small decorative pillows with all of the other pillows' colors.

Natalie B said...

I would love to brighten/freshen up my out door chairs with some colourful pillows :-) thank you for the offer.

Weronika K said...

I loooove cushions. I have like a gazillion of them. I keep changing the colour schemes to freshen up the living room.
I made only one cushion myself (a little ginger fox), but I hope to make some more some time in the future.
Thanks for inspirations.
:)

maren said...

Oooh! Pillows! I need some for my blah brown couch!

HollyM said...

I've got a lot of beige and neutral and would love some pillows to brighten up my living room. I made a couple but I feel I still need a little more color.

M R-B said...

I am getting ready to move and just recently found some vintage bedding. All white. Now I have a blank canvas for pillows. I love them and agree, they add so much fun to any space. Thanks for posting all the great ideas :)

Fran said...

I have bright yellow chairs in my living room/office and I need to pull colors from the other parts of the house. Pillow would do that wonderfully!!

Papper said...

I love pillows ! They encourage me to sink down, relax, read and reflect. I find they are an easy way to add a little (or a lot) of colour into any environment. Right now I am looking for materials that are outdoor friendly so I can use them on the deck and not have to take them inside in the evening.

Casita Knapp said...

I would use it to decorate my bedroom, it's small and it's hard to move furniture around, so it's been the same way for a long time.

Cristi Baxter Clothier said...

Oh, I have 2 brown leather sofas in my living room that need some serious spicing up! Some fab pillows would fit the bill.

Thanks
Cristi

Megan said...

My pillow selection is so sad - we are just using the ones that came with our couch (boring!!). We could really use a colorful fun update!!

Kate Stuckey said...

I use them in what I would describe as places of comfort and relaxation including the lounge, bed, reading nook, outdoor seat etc. They add colour, extra comfort and they are easily changeable!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Diane said...

We found in the evening that we were always competing with our dogs for the pillows. I went to the store and got many pillows for them an area to lay on that didnt include the pillows from the couch that were ours.
They love them, and seem to be able to stick to their own.
Yeah!

Lauren said...

I love using cushions and pillows as extra seating on the floor when we have people over....it adds a lot of coziness to our tiny space!

the Domina said...

Oh yes! Pillows! I think a handful of pillows on my deck would make for some cozy spring lounging.

ariadne said...

Lovely colours!I need some new additions to change the mood here!Count me in!AriadnefromGreece!

Audrey said...

My couch is a hand-me-down, and while it's comfortable, it has no back cushions! So I'd love to have a bunch of mix-matched throw pillows to use instead!

Mrs. Mary Virginia said...

Oh- I would love new throw pillows for our bed to incorporate the burnt orange color from our wall! :)

Mali.S said...

I'm also crazy about pillows!. Unfortunatly, i don't have much space since i have a really tiny one room flat, however (or because of that), i use pillows to transform my bed to a cosy sofa when inviting my friends.
My dream when i'll get to a bigger place, is to create a cosy space with pillows where one could dream, read, drink tea...

Chrissy Farnan said...

I have a great bench and I need a few pillows for it and also I'm going to need a couple euro pillows for my bed!!!

Ashley said...

My girls love to make forts in the living room with all my pillows, so adding a few extra would be a huge hit!

Angie said...

I love all your different ideas for pillows and decorating. We just moved from a small townhouse to a little single family. We could use pillows all over the place, but for now - if I won - I would buy some for the girls room! We are going turquoise, pink, yellow, etc. for their room...

Blair said...

I love pillows. I don't love picking them up after my husband and 2 boys throw them off the couch as they just don't get it:). I like the idea of covers to switch out either seasonally or whenever the mood strikes.

I'm Nicole, said...

I would love to replace the pillows that came with my couch (and are the same color) with pillows that add more color, and are unique!

Kathy Haddock said...

I have pillows everywhere - the more the merrier! They make a room so much cozier and comfortable. I have crocheted pillow tops, quilted them, stenciled, and just made simple covers. Making a pillow was the first sewing project that I taught to my daughter. Just love them!

Kat Lange said...

With my decor I tend to be safe by sticking with neutrals but that is definitely not my personality, I want to be bold and add some pops of color and texture to liven up the spaces that I spend so much time in. Pillows are a perfect way to do that. I LoveLove the relaxing reading nook you created for the oh so sweet Lucy, my babes would love that. I LoveLove your blog. Thank you so much for the everyday inspiration.

Jeanette said...

I too love pillows in all shapes and sizes and styles. I would love to add a few to a cozy seating nook in the dormer portion of our bedroom.
Thanks for your generosity!
Best,
Jeanette

Amber Malarsie said...

I would dress up our hand made adirondack chairs gifted to us last year by my father in law. After 8.5 years of waiting around, the hubs finally went through with it. Nice,fashionable, hand crafted pillows would top off the special hand crafted chairs!

Stacy Kristine said...

I just love pillow and blankets! I can't get enough of their comfort and beauty. I'm currently working on changing up my decor style, so pillow covers from Festive Home Decor would be a fantastic start and great inspiration! Thanks for the lovely post and giveaway.

tropicslady said...

We just bought a cute little vintage Airstream and I want to boho and gypsy-fy the interior a bit, and pillows is one way to add all of the color that we need inside what is now a drab brown interior.

Lisa said...

I would start a colorful collection on my naked white sofa. Poor thing, it is just screaming for color!!!

ArtSea Chic said...

She has so many fabulous pillows!! (LOVE)! I really like the destination pillows of Hawaii and France paired with green/turquoise shades next to them. On my brown leather couch - they would look fabulous and give the living-room that extra pop of color and much needed day-dreaming feel :)

Colleayn said...

This would be so fun to win to change the look of my bedroom. I would put them all over my bed and on my meditation chair. I love all of your pillows. It looks so warm, cozy and happy.

Hi, Im Kelly! said...

thank you for the chance to win, I love how many pillows you have!

I would use it in my sons room, I am moving here soon with just him and I and I am creating a space for him in our one bedroom place and would love to add a pillow to it! Hi room is vintage themed and looking to add blues, blacks and golds

Michelle Joy Wecksler said...

I LOVE the cozy little space you created on the floor with the pillows!!!! I might have to find a little corner in a room and create a cozy space of my own!!!! :) Thanks for the opportunity to win and thank you for sharing so much inspiration every day!!!!!

Cindy (JunqueArt) said...

I LOVE using pillows to change up the look and feel of a room. It's a great way to update without spending a ton of money. It's definitely time for a spring update. Thanks for the giveaway and the discount! Keeping my fingers crossed!

daydream kate said...

This is such a timely post! I just got done majorly cleaning/purging my house over the last week, and just yesterday I was on Etsy looking at fun pillows. I would use pillows to add some much needed color and personality to our living room. Plus, it would be an excuse to get rid of the awful ones that came with our couch.

Amanda T. said...

We recently moved into a new house that is very neutral, but with a new baby, we don't have much time to paint or renovate. I'm using pillows to add color and fun and to make a new house feel like home.

Kate said...

I would love to add some color to my daughter's room with pillows and give her a more grown up look now that she is 11

pulverschwein said...

My daughter and son-in-law are building a home and starting from the ground up. She was just at my house talking about pillows, we were looking at catalogs together.
I would love to win pillows for her and her new home! That would be such a treat for her during this slow and frustrating building process! Your style and hers match up well!

Natalie Murphy said...

So excited for this chance to win as I have been searching for more pillows to add to, well everywhere. Right now I need a few more for my upstairs couch and then I need them for the two bedrooms and basement couch. I love using pillows because to me they provide not only comfort for the body when resting on them, but for the mind as well. When I see your photos of all of those pillows you have placed around your home I just get an overall feeling of comfort and want that in my new, first ever home. Plus, I love the COLOR!!!!

ms. molly said...

Oh how fun! We are moving into a new home and I have been dreaming about neutral backgrounds and lots of bright coloured pillows! I have to admit that I am so inspired by this look in your home. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Valerie Brown said...

My old pillows (on the couch) are on their last legs!! I guess they got too much love! I've been looking around locally to replace them (or their covers) - I would love to be able to do that!

chelsea said...

I love pillows! My bed is covered in them! But I also have a window seat that could use some love...

Have you shopped on Society 6? I just recently got a shop there and I love what you can find there! Especially since you have the option to find a design you like and see it on a bunch of different products, including pillows!

Jana K said...

I have four boys and our pillows are used for play all the time! They build forts, they jump off bunk beds or stairs into a pile of them, they make stepping stones to cross hot lava from one piece of furniture to another, they make an enormous bed on the floor and all sleep together in a bed of pillows . . .their imagination is endless. So, since my pillows get a lot of use, I use pillow covers a lot to keep them decent looking. I love this post and your bright pillows! Thanks for the discount!

Tiffany said...

I would get new pillows for my couch and for my sons room. He loves using pillows for forts and snuggling!

Rachel said...

I would make a little reading nook for my kiddos (and me)! Thanks for the giveaway!!

Currumichuti said...

I love pillows everywhere. I love them for play on the floor.
love

drooz doodles said...

Pillows are my favorite "change out accessory" too!
I could use some new summery bright pillows to wake up our rooms- we have dark wood trim everywhere- which is ok- but needs even more pops to POP! (FYI: I shop Marshall's, etc for ugly clearance pillows- the inserts are sometimes really nice down filled (vs foam) and very inexpensive. ...making it even more reasonable to purchase more new pillow covers!)

Tammy Gilley said...

Hi Alisa! What fun! We're building a window seat, thanks to your inspiration, so I would use my prize to outfit it with glorious pillows. :) Fun post today - I'm a bit obsessed with pillows too. xo

KGS said...

I need to brighten up my denim couch with a new pillow or two! Thanks, Alisa!

Laurie said...

These pillows inspire me to be brave and add some color happiness to my otherwise neutral family room. I love it!

Robin Sanchez said...

I have a pillow obsession too. Any store Im in I always check out the pillows. Love your style. I need some fresh new pillows for my sofa.....thats where I would put mine.
Robin

Kim said...

Pillows, cheap and so pretty!

Maria Ontiveros said...

I use them to "freshen up" the living room and our bedroom decor.
Rinda

Lindsey said...

I love to use pillows! I use them most often to make our bedroom seem fresh - it can get boring to have the same decor on the bed every day!

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!
Lindsey

Debi Kibbee said...

I have never used pillows, I don't think I even own any other than the ones that came with the couch. I can see what a diffrence it makes, would love to win and start my own pillow collection

Cecile said...

I'm renting my place and don't want to spend money in renovations. Pillows are an easy (and pretty cheap) way to change the mood in my living room... With Spring coming, I'm ready for bright and cheeful pillow covers!

Erin Walrath said...

As a renter pillows are amazing! We can't paint but I have lots of art and pillows would be a perfect compliment for our bare furniture.

Rosemariee said...

I love all of your pillows! I need some pillows for my living room!

ragamuffin diva said...

I'd use pillows to create a cozy, colorful nook in my painting studio.

Gramma Sue ~ Grampa Max said...

Pillows charm my bed and my daughters bed...she has more though. Love the brightnes it brings to a room.

Saundra Lane Galloway said...

Not only do I use pillows in all ways as you have described, but also use them as a door stop as a festive way to enter a room along with keeping a door open that often gets blown by the wind! FUN DOINS!

Little Ella Lu said...

I would love some pillows to put in our living room.

dianne anderson said...

I would make my first pillow if I won the giveaway!

Saskia Z said...

My husband actually hates our current bedding! So I'd use this as way to start over w/ something he actually likes..

Catherine said...

I can now create my own space without concern for someone elses likes or dislikes. Pillows would allow me to explore and find my style.

~ Donna Peter said...

WOW, so generous. I am truly inspired as I don't use pillows much but I do like the looks of them, ans what an inexpensive way to spruce things up with the seasons.
I only have a few on my bed and on the sofas, the ones in the living room are boring, so maybe something new there would be a nice refreshing change.
Thankyou

Becca said...

Love pillows! I am turning a spare bedroom into a studio. I have pushed the twin bed against the wall (with no headboard) to use as a daybed. I am actually in the process of selecting colors and sizes of pillows so this would be great. Thanks for the giveaway! By the way, love all of your pillows.

JoAnn Stevens said...

Oh! Do I need pillows! I love them as well (love this post) but my dog has chewed up quite a few and I need some new ones! He has finally out grown chewing on such things ;) Thank Goodness!!!

Teacher5Reader said...

I'd love to have pillows to add some pizazz to our brown leather sofa and love seat in the living room. I need bright and alive to celebrate spring!

TayLor said...

The only pillows I have in the house besides the one on my bed, are the ones that came with my couches. They are boring! I'd love to freshen up my living room and family room with pillows for the couches!

Jana said...

What a bunch of very cool pillows! Love the patterns and colors. I'd love to add to our collection on our couch - we have a couple, but need MORE! Thanks for this opportunity!!

Jen said...

I don't think I use them quite as much as you do, but I have quite a few decorative pillows in my livingroom, the bedrooms,and the chairs in my art room. I've even made most of them!

joojoo said...

OMG! I love pillows too =) what I do is I like to collect all different colors and shapes and thrown them on the bed, sofas, and anywhere that needs to be comfy n pretty haha
thanks for the inspiration!

Lynda said...

I would love to update my living room with some great pillows - I am thinking floor pillows for when my grandchildren visit - triplets who are 21 months old today!

Christina said...

EEEEEeeek! (Fingers crossed that I win.) I LOVE pillows! I use them very practically because I'm short, so I have to stick pillows behind my back if I want to sit comfortably on normal furniture. I love using coordinating colors in a variety of prints and textures. My current living room pillows are made of a vintage floral print fabric, wool plaid, slubby silk, and an upcycled striped sweater. They're starting to all get worn out (all that back propping and kid-playing has been pretty hard on them), so I would really love to win! Did I mention I LOVE pillows? Lol.

Vicki said...

We use them as seat cushions around our ginormous coffee table for a more casual dining experience. Then they either stack in the corner of the living room in a cheery pile, or go back on the couches. I love pillows!

Rachel said...

I'm afraid I might have a slight obsession with pillows...just a tiny one. When my husband and I got married and I was decorating our bed, he walked in and asked with a rather bewildered look on his face, "Wait, these are ALL for our bed?!" He is a modern with a slightly minimalist flavor graphic designer, I'm a much more collected and colorful one. It's actually a beautiful unity. But I digress! :D I'd love to add a pillow to the couch for my eight month old to pull off and play with:)

MzAshleyQ said...

What a cool giveaway!

I love to use pillows to barricade my baby girl from rolling off the bed when we snuggle ;)

Dana Weibel said...

Hello Alisa,
I'm so excited to enter your pillow give-away! Just yesterday I sent your blog link to my sister, touting all of your strengths. Also, I'm in the fourth lesson of your water color class. I'm learning so much about color and shading.
Pillows are a great way to add color to a boring couch or bed.
Keep blogging, I'm a dedicated follower.

kathy n said...

i have a drab grey couch on the porch that i'd love to give a pop of color too!

Megs said...

I just moved into a new home, so it really is a blank slate in the decor department :) It's screaming for new colors & patterns! Thanks for this!!

Stacey said...

I would love to use the pillows on the sunlit reading nook!

inkytoes said...

as live-in caretaker for my 90 yr old, disabled mother, i don't have a lot of pillows now. but i do like having lots of them in really bright colors to cheer up my bedroom. When on my own they gravitate all over the house.

Kelley said...

I don't really have any decorating know how, but I think I could do pillow forms! Thanks for the giveaway...heading over to the etsy store now to have a look!

Shine on!
Kelley

Laurie said...

I love using pillows to accent the bed, sofa, chairs - anything! I'm in need of some new ones!!!

Becky K. said...

I work at JoAnn Fabrics and have a hard time resisting buying all the great fabrics I see daily. My stash is accumulating and I recently figured out that I could easily use some up by making pillow covers. I love the easy change in decorating style/mood of a room by just adding new pillows. With Spring emerging, it's time for some new pillows for the couch and bed.

Hope Amen said...

Love all of your pillow ideas. At the moment I have now decorative pillows. I would love to get some color and inspiration by way of new pillows. Thanks so much for the giveaway....heading over to etsy now to check out her store.

Maria said...

I'd like to make my bedroom look more put together. Thanks for the chance to win!

Tara@Aquamarine said...

I am completely obsessed with pillows too {or cushions as we call them here in the UK :)} ~ I just moved and now have a whole different colour scheme from my last place so some new cushions would be the perfect way to pull it together.

susiecarranzastudio said...

i love using colorful pillows on our light blue couch - adds some punch and pattern! :)

Vicki said...

Hi Alisa,
I love these pillows, and need new ones for my renovation.

Today is my birthday, so maybe I'll be lucky:)
Thanks for the chance!
Vicki

Lanie said...

Oh! I could really, really use some pretty, unique pillows to spice up my boring living room furniture! Thanks for the chance to win!

Mendy Kay said...

I have a new couch that came with two throw pillows that are matchy-matchy. I need some fun pillows to express my personality. I've always dreamed of having a different quilted pillow cover for every holiday also. Love the blog!!!

Jo Murray said...

The floor is my favourite place, and boy could I use some floor cushions! At the mo' I just have stacks of small ones, not so flash.

Vanessa said...

I would totally use pillows to redefine my bedroom. I love redecorating and I love pillows!

Sarah Johnson said...

I believe I would make it a gift for a married sister of mine who always seemed rather like a kindred spirit to you! I think she would love it, and any of them would be splendid for her coastal home.

cheryl.mccann said...

i would spruce up my sofa - it still just has the plain boring pillows that came with it. no fun in that.
i've been meaning to do something - but just haven't figured out what is right.

Melanie jade said...

We have two white chairs that could definitely use some bold, beautiful accent pillows. Thank you for this giveaway!

Rose said...

We use pillows all of the time on our TV coach for lounging. I love to have a pillow corner for reading, too.

Mary-Beth said...

I love pillows and also use them to decorate. After I saw a pic of your daughter's room with the Sarah Young puppet pillows, I fell in love and ordered the set for my kiddos (and me).

lizibeth said...

With three little ones, a gray couch is our best bet, so I use pillows to add pops of color (they're SO much easier to throw in the wash than the couch's cover :D)

Adrienne said...

I need some new couch pillows! I would love to find some ones that matched my black, grey and white striped ones that I already have.

Mrs. C said...

I'm a little pillow obsessed myself! sometimes I buy them sometimes ( they need to be cozy ) but mostly I make them myself, pieced and quilted or crocheted. They have been used to decorate, create forts and cozy places to play. They get hugged and loved and loved some more. My kids are teenagers now ( it seems like I blinked and they grew up!) but these pillows would still get well used! :)

" m(i)e " said...

OMG ! I've already choosen the ones I want when I win !ç they are gorgeous!

Jennifer Blevins said...

I, too, am a lover of pillows. I don't have a zillion of them like you do, but I definitely would love to add to my collection. Thanks for sharing your obsession! My fav of yours is the rosette pillow you made.
-Jennifer

Lori said...

I love pillows, even though I don't have very many. I'd buy a couple to brighten up the living room!

mbi said...

I just first want to say that I absolutely LOVE, LOVE your new window seat! I have always wanted one of those (ever since reading The Secret Garden), and you have such a perfect spot for it! And all those beautiful pillows. We have big pillows (probably 60cm or 22" square!) on our couch in the tv room for snuggling up with, leaning against and falling asleep on, and I have some in the living room for adding colour, but I would like more... The ones on the Festive Home Decor page are great!! And it is so nice that they are offering a discount for all of us who don't win the giveaway... YAY!

Debby said...

I just purchased new furniture for the family room and could use some new pillows.

Erin Keane said...

Nine months ago I moved out of my old house and gave away 75% of my belongings--because I was moving in with my boyfriend and planned to make a new "home" with him. Immediately after moving, things turned sour, and with a sad heavy heart I held off on decorating the house we shared.

Now nine months later I've moved forward--and into another new wonderful home. I have a blank slate and look forward to starting fresh.

Lisa said...

Love your tips on mixing prints...maybe I will finally get around to making the cushion for my window covering and add pillows...right now it is bare and has been for 12 years...yikes.

Hillary said...

I'd love some new pillows & honestly our dog would probably use them more them us (he hogs the couch). Awesome giveaway!

Emily said...

I would use these to spice up my living room! I could definitely use the black graphic pillows she has :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Tapintoart said...

I have a great love of pillows as well..am inspired to make some for my family room from my quilting stash, but would LOVE to have some of yours! 8-)

Sharon R said...

I just made slip covers for my old, beat up couch and have *nothing* to match...guess I should've thought about that:-)

Anonymous said...

My sad monochromatic couch needs some new pattern and color! That's probably where they'd go. Thanks, Alisa, for sharing all your lovely creativity - your blog is inspiring!

Nancy Brumfield said...

My walls are tan and my furniture is golden, so I desperately need to add color to my Living Room.

Susan Libertiny said...

I'm redecorating my bedroom, so a new pillow might be just the inspiration needed to finalize the color scheme. Thanks for offering such a fun give away!
Susan

ginigin said...

Some great looking pillows, so snuggly and bright. I'd love some more pillows to make my overstuffed chair more cozy. It swallows me up and needs some pillowfying.

Cindy said...

Eeeeee! I have a couple things in mind. I have an ivory slip covered canvas couch and love seat so color is a MUST.I love this shop's chevron and ikat prints!! I also think I'd have to gift a little of the cheese to my baby sis-she'd love to get her hands on this fabric! Finally, my little 5 month old is starting to sit up on his own a few minutes at a time and then...splat. Pillows have to surround his blanket on the floor. And shouldn't he look fabulous when he lands safely? ;) Thank you for the chance to win something so fun! Be well.

Doris said...

I can use on pillow as a throw pillow to add a pop of color to ur new home.

meg said...

They would brighten up my all black furniture.

Jamie said...

Bright, cheerful pillows will help add comfort and character to our living room space and liven up our hopefully-soon-to-be-replaced boring man-sofa until it can be traded in for something more stylish & adequate for our growing family.

Jessica Strader said...

I would use some on my bare couch!! Thanks!

Msita said...

I have a few pillows on my couch but I definitely need more and new pillow covers. I'm fascinated by the Green Turqoise collection from festive Home Decor!

Lori said...

I love pillows. Living in 320 square feet means that decorating or tiny space isn't easy but pillows add a pop of color, are functional. I can always use a new pillow.

BlessieNelson said...

I would use pillows to cozy up my curl in sofa and in the patio lounge chair to rest in softness!

Natasha said...

My living room and couch are in desperate need of new colour. Desperate.

Mary C. Nasser said...

What an inspiring and colorful post!
My guest room (and the brown leather futon)are in desperate need of colorful pillows!

Thank you for the chance to win!
Fingers crossed! :)

Kristal Norton said...

OH I am loving all of your pillows! We recently bought our first home, and have yet to decorate it. I own a total of two decorative pillows (that came with our couch), so I am in dire need of some. lol I'd love to get a bunch of pillows to make our new home more cozy. Thanks for the chance to win some from this lovely Etsy seller, her shop is awesome!

Beached Librarian said...

I've been starting to work on making some of my own pillow covers and looking around for fun pillows to add punches of colour to my living room and bedroom. I love to read in bed, so lots of pillows there are a must!

Judy grieve said...

I love to give pillows as house warming gifts...something to go with their decor...or sometimes the little girls room....

Amy Milne said...

I Love the idea of using them as a decorating tool, to mix up colours and patterns, especially since we are renting and are therefore unable to paint. I love the way that you can use them to change the feel of a room, from funky to calm. I actually only have two at this minute, a blue star shaped one and a purple heart sheped one that were a present when i was a teenager :) But your pillow combinations are very inspiring :)

Patter Cross said...

Oh wow, such a colorful and beautiful post! I would love to get some new colorful pillows for our new home. We moved across country, and the walls in the 5 year old house we bought are a yellow with red stained glass accents on the door, lighting, etc. Not my color scheme but I think with the right pillows, this could REALLY perk it up! Thanks for the chance to win. Blessings,

sibel said...

Great giveaway just after my spring cleaning!

patty a. said...

It is amazing how Lucy has changed from the pillow fort picture to laying on the floor looking at a book! I have made a lot of pillows over the years for myself and gifts. I think they fill in that empty space on a couch.

I could use some new pillows for my living room. This Summer I'm going to redecorate my living room to more of a neutral theme and then some bright, fun pillows would be awesome. Thanks for the change to win!!!

Silvia said...

I'm looking to re-decorate our bedroom & could definitely use some new, fun pillows!

Thanks for the give-away

hcolvin said...

I agree, pillows are an easy way to change the look and feel of a room! I would use new pillows in my bedroom and guest room! I especially need some in my guest room. Thanks for the chance to win!

Stephanie said...

I need to spiff up our master bedroom. I'd use them for the bed there.

Kristen D said...

I love all of your bright patten pillows. I would use the pillows to brighten up my bedroom.

Heather Williams said...

I love pillows!!! I have them in the usual places...on the couch, on a chair, on beds...but, I, also, have some larger ones as floor cushions that are great for dining outdoors at at a low table. Thank you for the generous opportunity! ~H♥~

Kristen said...

I loved this post! I have been trying to bring new color into our otherwise white living room - so this would be perfect. Thank you for the opportunity!

Meghan Thimjon said...

Clearly I need to be using more pillows! Love all of yours!

Becky said...

I love the color that pillows add to a space. I would use pillows to change up our living room as there aren't many options in moving around furniture!

rachel said...

We're moving soon and I'd use it to brighten up our new space!

Liz said...

I definitely need some new pillows for our brown leather couches in our great room! Love the pillows that have a message on them! So cute!

Denise said...

Cheerfull pillows on our love seat in the family room would really make my 8 year old son happy. He loves to cosy up on the couch with his favorite blanket and watch t.v., play video games and snuggle when his father and I read to him. Also when he gets sick and stays on the couch all day, fun pillows would certainly make him feel better! Thank you for the opportunity!

Jessie Price said...

I would love to use cheerful pillows in my dorm room. Living in a dorm is a little sad, and as a college students I don't extra money to decorate. Decorative pillows would be a good way to add color, "homeyness" and happiness to my room.

Cindy Tobey said...

I'd use new pillows to add some pattern and color to our brown leather couches.

April O. said...

Oh, our living room would get such a great color pick-me-up with throw pillows!

What a wonderful giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity and 20% off info!

Lisa said...

Ahhh... I love pillows and would love to win this giveaway! I would use them in my family room. Thanks and have a great day!

Kimberly Fasone said...

To change things up for spring!

krystal said...

Pillows can be used to quickly change the mood of any room. Currently our living room is rather boring. I have trouble finding pillows that are child proof. I have a one year old boy, Giovanni. Anything with fringe, buttons or other materials easily pulled off by him...have been removed from our couches. This has left us with 2 pillows...both beige and boring. I would love to win...so that maybe I could buy new pillows for our couch...and help to bring some excitement back into our home. Thanks

Janet said...

I like pillows on the couches and beds. I used to build forts with them all the time when I was a kid. I think if I had more pillows, my kids could really get going with the forts again.

Leah said...

It is time for me to update my pillows. Ours have been loved to pieces.

Stacey said...

I could really use some more pillows in my life! Thanks for the tips. I just bought some new furniture for my living room and right now my furniture is sitting pillowless. I would love to dress it up with some new pillows.

Holly S said...

I love pillows too! My living room (kinda boring right now) could use some new, bright fluffy pillows to usher in a new season. Thank you for the chance to win!

omasdarlins said...

I love pillows, too. I still have a silk organza heart shaped pillow my great-aunt made me over 40 years ago for my Hope Chest.

MrsKeebler said...

I love little accent pillows with sayings. My cats & enjoy soft pillows for naps.

Jess G said...

Only pillows on my couch now are the ones that came with it, blah!! Need some color to spice it up

Melody M. Nunez said...

Thank you, and Festive Home Decor, for this giveaway! I'd love some bright pillows to add some color and pattern to our brown sofa. I looked at the FHD website and my goodness - such wonderful prints to choose from! :)

Pez said...

I would love to add some turquoise and coral to my all tan living room.

terip said...

My sofa is starting to look tired and in need of recovering. i have been wanting to put some new pillows on it to help spruce it up until we can recover the sofas.

Vee said...

I don't have a lot of space, but I love changing out pillows on my couch and bed. I try to keep everything else neutral and let the pillows and art do the talking.

Nancy said...

I love to see your pillow collection and did already watch out for them in your previous posts! Thanks a lot for sharing this great discount and the giveaway. If I would one I would great a whole new space using the pillows as I am just about to move from the UK to Germany and it would be so important to me to have a cozy and stylish hime there. Thanks a lot for the chance. (And please go on showing us your future pillows!) Nancy

beth.gibson said...

I love pillows, but my husband always throws them on the floor! ha! I would love to decorate our family room with bright and colorful pillows like yours. We don't have a lot of other decorations in there, so I think that some pillows would really spruce things up!

myownplace said...

I'd use new pillows to accessorize my bedroom. I did it over in aqua and white and it really needs a POW of color.

Danielle M. said...

I could really use some new pillows for my living room, or even outside on the Adirondack chairs!

dawn darling said...

I would use the pillows to add a pop of color to my bedroom. I have a cream bed cover and taupe walls and aqua raw silk drapes. I NEED COLOR!

Holly Marie said...

I haven't accumulated much of a collection yet, but I'd love to have a bunch of pillows in pretty and clashing prints so that my apartment feels both homey and a little boho.

Javacurls said...

My family & I spend a lot of time at the dining table... it's where we come together to eat, talk, play games, and create! But sitting for hours can wear on my back. What I'd love to do is place a pillow on the back of each chair so they'll be more comfortable. ;)

vintagevixenarts said...

Well lemme just say I would be thrilled to have some pillows/cover's to "finally" cover my down filled blank, white pillows that have been waiting for some color on my couch for three sadsack year's!!:O Thankyou kindly,xo

Turquoise Diaries - Sahildeki Ev said...

We are living in a small Mediterranean town and summer is almost here so I can use lots and lots of colorful pillows on the sofa at our balcony...

Meg S said...

I really need some new pillows for my sofa! It's spring and I need some bright colors!

KnitSix said...

I like to use pillows to take my black and white toile duvet cover from elegant to funky. They also double as book holders, pet beds, seat cushions, and (because I have ME) props to support and cushion me while sleeping.

Debbie Rosenkranz said...

i plan to use some new pillows to decorate a little window nook just like the one you all constructed. We have been wanting to do this for some time but your blog post just sent us right into it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Alibé Made said...

I would buy some lovely pillows using your advise and from there redesign my bedroom around the colors in them. I love colorful pillows! Thanks for the chance to win!

elena prikhodko knapp said...

i d love to win, i love pillows,

Alissa said...

Ooo, pick me! I'd love a new pillow as a backrest on my glider.

Roselanni Bowyer said...

I love using pillows to decorate my couches in the living room, and on the master bedroom! I looooove pillows! They can add so much character to a room!

hdrapetis said...

Ι'm in love with pillows too! Great giveaway! I'd use my pillows on my bed and later on when I have my own house I'd put them everywhere!

bluesky said...

It is so much fun to find a fabulous fabric remnant or a unique piece at an estate sale and create a fresh face for existing pillows--love to recover them! Right now I would love to find pillows for my bed that make my heart sing! Something that says 'Spring is here!'--thanks so much for sharing your joy in creating with us! Love it!

winnsangels said...

Wow, fabulous giveaway. I love pillows and I love all the inspiration you give for making and using pillows. Thank you.
Mostly I use pillows on our bed for decoration, but pillows are often tossed here and there on the floor, a couch, or chair as well.

Ellen J said...

I would wake up from a little snooze and be delighted to see myself surrounded by fabulous colors!

Karen said...

I am obsessed with pillows now, and its all YOUR fault! :P I inherited a couch and love seat set in off white from my mother and I have been slowly collecting funky pillows for them*because I loved how yours looked so much). So if I won this giveaway..that would be like you contributing to my pillow crack habit.Jus sayin.

Onna said...

I love your site, your color use and inspiration! We are moving May 1st and to make the move more palatable I'm redoing our bedroom decor. I love color, but have never been very good at putting it all together, so this post (and giveaway, hopefully :) is PERFECT timing to help me assemble the bedroom! I love love love ALL the turquoise on the site! Thanks for the chance!

Vivian said...

i have been wanting to replace my pillow covers for a looong time. i so need this..

We could use some more pillows to relax on & to brighten up our living room. The kids love to use my hand-made pillows as true "throw" pillows, and they could use replacing! Will definitely check out their site - thanks!
