1. Summer Pillow Swap

    With Memorial Day weekend coming up fast, we are ready to shift into summer mode and embrace it’s wonderful characteristics – green lawns, blue pools, white pants, pink watermelon, yellow corn on the cob, popsicles in every color of the rainbow. With this season of exploding color inspiration, we want to share some fresh throw pillow combinations to transition your home into warm and sunny carefree days.

    To try out your own combination, we suggest pairing a small-scale print + organic/botanical print + large scale print. One geometric pattern, either large or small, is a good contrast to the organic choice.

    Find a summer style that suits you below!
