Always get samples! Here’s why: The ‘Color of the Day’ posts are intended to provide design inspiration. I select projects and products for each ‘Color of the Day’ post based on the color my eye sees in the photographs. It can be extremely difficult to render color with 100% accuracy when taking photographs, especially of interior spaces. The same color can also appear  entirely different in different lighting conditions. For these reasons, the actual color of the projects or products  may not be an actual match to the ‘Color of the Day’. Always review actual samples from the product manufacturer before making final purchases.

Pillow Sets {Royal Bouquet Medley}


I love this bouquet design from Renee Landry. It’s such a beautiful collection of textures and colors. And, the dark blue dresses make the perfect backdrop to showcase this color combo. So, this got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be great to capture this ‘look’ with a throw pillow arrangement? I would start off with a generous pile of deep blue pillows as the base. Then, strategically place a few white pillows with various patterns and colors to mimic the bouquet. What do you think?

If you’d like to ‘Get this Look’, here are the pillows and covers that make up the set shown above:
