Pillow Power Personality

For many of us a great way to have your personality pop in your home is to update  your style through decorative accessories, perhaps a more affordable option than replacing a sofa, chair or ottoman…and a quick fix to any room in your home!

Choices today can vary through color, material, texture, weave and pattern. Trim detail is another way of adding dimension such as cross stitch accents, metallic trim detailing, fringe, pom-poms and piping.

Most of us have a color scheme defined already by the larger items in our home like a sofa or chair so work with updating these items with colors that will compliment these pieces. Sometimes  that means bringing a bit of contrast into the room…it’s not always good to match your pillows to the exact tone of your furniture. Try experimenting with patterns and colors out of your comfort zone to update your style. Many stores today have a 48 hour return policy so you can take home your choices to see you made the right design choice!

Some fun finds both local as well as overseas…

A Whole Lotta Love #DOAD (design on a dime) New York City


If you have never been to a “Design On A Dime” event…you should put it on your “interior bucket list”…take some of interior industries movers and shakers, donated interior products from top manufactures, prices below wholesale and an amazing cause…building homes for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS…this equals “A Whole Lotta Love”… not to mention a whole lotta FUN……warning…this event is packed to the brim with serious buyers that are willing, ready and able to snatch up their incredible finds in a matter of seconds…take me for example..I am beyond thrilled with my “Pelle Bubble Gold Leaf Light Fixture” handmade in Brooklyn that I spied…..and waited until 6:30pm when the event went live…reached for the ticket and literally turned around and paid to secure my amazing purchase. 

Take a peek at some of the very creative vignettes curated by top industry movers and shakers…(this event successfully debuted in Miami earlier this year) and happens in NYC every April at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 West 18th Street.
