The last of the fiinshing touches have been put on the master bedroom makeover. I have to say, I really do like it and it looks so fresh and inviting. Black/White/Beige is one of my favorite color combos and allows me to add any accent color I like. For summer, I used Raspberry Pink and I really like the sharp contrast it has to the neutral background. A little unexpected and just plain fun.
My old comforter set had matching euro shams and I really like that look, so I wanted to make some to coordinate with my new drapes. Since I added the two black ribbon stripes to the drapes, I thought the shams needed a similar treatment.
I thought you might like to see a step by step on how I made them.
I like for mine to be snug, so since the Euro pillows measure 26 x 26, I cut out 4 pieces of my fabric 26 x 26. (Front and back for two pillows)
Next sew the cording on the face of your pillow cover. Cut the edge of the cording selvage as you round the corner for a smooth turn.
These small custom touches create a look of luxury for just pennies.
The most luxurious part of these are the fabulous Feather Euro Pillow inserts from PillowCubes. When they contacted me to see if I could use some of their pillows for my makeover, of course I said yes. They have the most unique company. PillowCubes means they ship you a "cube" or box or pillows. They have tons of sizes and shapes and their prices are extremely reasonable. Now I know most of us buy more than one pillow insert, so buying them by the cube makes total sense. This video explains their company beautifully. (Click on pic to view)
Isn't that a genius concept. When I opened my cube, I found two fabulous feather down euro pillows enclosed in plastic.
A really nice beautiful quality cotton with double stitched seams. No wandering feathers sticking out anywhere. The quality is very evident.
A small karate chop and these add the perfect finishing touch to my bed.
Now they are offering all of my readers a 10% discount on your orders - just use the code - -aStrollThruLife10. I am honestly really impressed with the quality of their pillows. Check out their site, I think you will be impressed too.
