UB Spotlight: Get Fresh With Pillows


There’s no better quick and easy way to update a space than updating key accents with the season. The impact you’ll create by changing toss cushions is huge! Plus, changing up your textiles like pillows and throws is a great way to stay current with trends without the big investment, and is much less work than pulling out the gallon of paint and the brushes. Not that I’m lazy, but I’ve got better things to do in the summertime than redecorate my home.

We all naturally think to make these updates to your living room, but don’t neglect the boudoir – I love muted grey tones in the winter months, but when summer comes along I like to bring my space alive with bright colours – my white bedding didn’t know what happened to it when the orange and cobalt toss cushions showed up!


Another tip – don’t be afraid to play with sizes, shapes and patterns. Graphic and intricate designs layered with solid colours work well together, and feel fresh and modern.


Some of my current favourites: The Tessa pleated pillow comes in multiple colours, and is always a favourite to layer. The oversized Clooney toss pillow is a great new size (26 x 26″) and features a plush fabric that adds great texture. If you’re looking for something that will be sure to put a smile on people’s faces the Little Piggy toss pillow is a definite crowd pleaser!

Don’t miss the upcoming workshop in select stores this Saturday June 14th, where you’ll learn all sorts of great tips and design ideas about pillows and throws. Be sure to RSVP to reserve your space!
