colors of fall…indoors

wetfall
It’s kinda sad.  All the leaves in our neighborhood have fallen.  The tree in our front yard was the last to hold out.  It’s leaves turned a beautiful golden yellow and are now decorating our entire front yard beautifully.  I couldn’t resist going out to snap a few pics while it was raining this morning.
Just looking outside was enough inspiration for a color palette for some fresh new pillows for our bedroom.

I love the golden yellows and browns and everything else thrown in there. 

And of course they’re made with an invisible zip, so they reverse to this pretty little number:
Innocent Crush, oh how I love this fabric.  There’s just something so different about it.  And Anna Maria’s color choices never disappoint, there’s really nothing like them out there.  Good in a way, but I couldn’t find anything in my stash to go with them, so I ended up using 7 of her prints and made this side a simple square patchwork. 
So there are my pillows for the Pillow Challenge.  I think I’ll be on a pillow break for a bit (maybe).  Have a great weekend!

    While you were getting rain, we got snow all day. Blech. It’s melting, though.

  3. Love your two look pillows Anna! I was not thinking Innocent Crush at all when you said they reverse!

    I just bought a yard of the fabric on your left pillow, first picture. I loooove it! I haven’t decided what to do with it yet, but I just HAD to have it!

    Your pillows are gorgeous. As usual!

    I love pillows, fun and fast gratification.
    I thought I was going to be able to resist this line for a bit longer, but not if people keep blogging about their fabulous creations! :)

  8. I love the golden, warm colors. Perfect. I wouldn’t think of using 3 different pillows, but I love it. Looks great.

    Your pillows look amazing and I love that they reverse. I always have trouble storing extra pillow covers (i don’t have a lot of storage space). Thanks for the great idea!
