On the cover of the May 2010 House Beautiful are some gorgeous pillows. The one that caught my eye also sold the magazine to me. It’s the cream one with felted circles below. I was shocked to check the resources and see that this 20″ pillow, with insert included, is from Crate and Barrel for just $59.95. I’ll take two please.
I love the modern trend toward the mixes of high and low. Here is my friend Amy’s modern dining room. The lighting is pretty fabulous isn’t it? Well, they almost splurged on a VERY SIMILAR lighting piece. But, their designer Rachel Halvoson found this one at World Market for $15. Yep…it pays to look around!
So, don’t be afraid to pile on cheap pillows, if you love them, or add a Target lamp to your high-end living room. It’s the mix of styles and economies that keeps it real and interesting.
