Pillows, a Cushion, and a Throw

After my no-sew pillow cover post, I decided I would post about all the pillows in my house.  My sister first turned me on to mixing and matching different pattern and color on throw blankets and pillows.  I have brown walls, white curtains and brown leather couches, so a pop of color from pillows is a must!


Red/Cream Striped:  Pottery Barn (on sale for $13)
Blue/White Chevron:  Dwell for Target ($24.99 new, but I paid $10 for it at Goodwill with the tags attached)
Green Floral:  Cover is made from (2) World Market napkins for $6

Red/White:  same as above, I have two of them
Blue/White Bird Pillow:  Homegoods on clearance for $8!

Green Floral:  I made two of these no-sew pillows in this fabric
Silk Blue:  Homegoods for $19.99


(3) Black and White:  IKEA ($12 each and that includes the insert!)
Blue Silk with Black embellishment:  Pillow was from Kirklands for $7.99 and I jazzed it up.  More to come on that in another post!


Bench Cushion:  Pier One for $39.99
"1" Pillow:  Pottery Barn Outlet ($17.99)


Red/White Striped:  Pottery Barn on clearnace for $13.99 (it's an outdoor pillow that I use indoors)
Orange:  Crate & Barrel from like 10 years ago (no idea on the cost)
Colorful Striped:  IKEA ($6)

Lastly, my sister picked out this cute throw for me when we first moved in.  It is from Homegoods ($19.99).

There you have it!  And don't buy expensive pillow inserts!  Go to Ross or Kirklands or somewhere that sells inexpensive pillows, purchase a pillow you either like or don't like and remove the insert. 

Happy Wednesday!


  1. I'm curious - how is the no sew pillow holding up? I saw the same blog post, but wondered how sturdy the pillows would be, or if they would just fall apart.

  2. Brooklyn-I have only had the pillow covers for about a week, so I cannot comment on long term, but I feel like they will hold up fine with the fabric napkin. I use my pillows for decorative mostly, so no one is really laying on them for them to get damaged. If you try it, let me know how it goes!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love hearing what you have to say and I will do my best to answer all questions as quickly as possible. I will respond to comments/questions in the comments feed unless you prefer I email you, in which case, please leave your email address.
