You may be contemplating bigger changes for your home this spring, but in the meantime, place a few new pillows around the house for an immediate seasonal upgrade. From Euro to throw, bolster to boudoir, a pillow is arguably the smartest way to add an immediate touch of seasonal style to any room in the house.
Meet the pillow experts at Blue Moon Bedding. As the name suggests, they are known for creating cozy, beautiful beds with custom shams, duvets, dust ruffles and coordinating drapes, but Blue Moon is also an ideal source for fabric furnishings beyond the bedroom. This local shop, founded by interior designer Rhea Crenshaw, features a brand of custom linens that are hand-sewn in Memphis. Blue Moon’s fabric collection is multifaceted and adaptable to each client’s design story. Join us for a little pillow talk with the design team at Blue Moon Bedding about fabric trends and clever combinations for the spring 2015 fluff-up.
Fabric trends for spring that can easily be interpreted with pillows include tie-dye and plant-dyed fabrics. Saturated colors with a bold presence are always stunning for spring and summer. A hint of metallic is also huge right now and year-round for instant glamour.
If a fresh color combination for a room is in order, neutral creams and browns will always introduce an updated look. Currently, soft blues and lavenders are popular, and pairings with navy blue, especially navy and white, are a constant for this time of year. Of course, Rhea explains, it depends on the project and location of the house. A beach house will inspire different color combinations from a vacation home in the mountains or a Memphis residence.
Blue Moon pillows are mostly made with cottons and linens, and some are linen with embroidery. They have a wide range of pillows in their shop that you can buy and take home. This is a great option for anyone who needs a quick fluff-up before guests come in town.
Personalize with pillows
If you have a little more time, designing pillows is a fun way to personalize your home. The Blue Moon design team is available to help, but Rhea says it is rewarding to see how her DIY clients pull fabrics to create what they envision.
