I've been working on the dining room lately. Just little things here and there. Isn't decorating a process of adding and editing! This week I've added new velvet pillows.
But not just any pillows... velvet pillows. They always say elegance to me...
I made them myself and because they were envelope pillows they were super easy to whip up!
I think velvet pillows can sometimes look old fashioned. So, that's why I made them envelope style... and added a row of fabric posies! Much more updated and far less stodgy. Elegant with a twist!
I chose a gold/camel/greenish color to bring out the golds in the dining room. I adore gold!
I think the color compliments the rug and buffet.
Just the lighting from one side of the room to the next really changes it's color.
I added very easy to make posies using the curtain and chair fabric.
Aren't they fun and sassy! You can see a posy making tutorial by clicking HERE.
Pillows give my plain head chairs a little more pizzazz!
It was pure, blissful serendipity that the flowers peeked out over the table!
I have another project that I am working on in the dining room... but that's for later this week!
Look for an upcoming MAKING AN ENVELOPE PILLOW DIY soon!
