Quick Change Friday

I finished up sewing all those vintage scarves into pillows. I sewed invisible zippers in each one so I can change them out on a whim. Also since I use many of the same colors throughout my house they can migrate from room to room. Yay for functionality!


I made all these pillows myself except for the sparkly one. It's from Urban Outfitters. The only pillow not from a vintage scarf is the blue watercolor one.


The scarves only cost $1-$3 each and the blue frabric was a few dollars from Joann's. With that cost and a few dollars for the zipper each pillow only cost about $7 to make. The fillers are down and cost about $10 each.


The rug is a new addition from John Robshaw, purchased on One Kings Lane for a steal. I'm not sure if I'll keep it in here, hence the layering .

The duvet is from Ikea. It's a nice duvet but I can definitely tell it's cheaply made. The fabric is sewn crookedly and is pulling on the seams already. Also the insert, which I also purchased at Ikea, is not the right size. WTF Ikea! You make both of these can't you make the inserts the right size for your duvets!!!!

IKEA duvets are weird. I have one, too, it fits my Pottery Barn cover all wrong! I love the screens you used as a headboard--my parents have the same ones and my sister did the same thing with them when we were younger! Love the look.

What a gorgeous bedroom! I particularly love the scarf pillow with the red, pink and grey. I've been wanting to do a scarf pillow for a while.

Fabulous room! Don't you dare move the rug b/c it MAKES the room and pulls it all together! I am so freakin jealous you got that rug. I love those night stands too and where the heck did you get the PINK lamps??!! Sensational Brandi and don't you love windows that do to the floor! I have some.

I'm in awe of your skills. Those pillows are gorgeous. Now I'm going to keep my eyes open for scarfs that can be used as pillows as well as ones for me. Your room is beautiful.
