Poached from interior design blog, Occasion…
Preface: I love the concept of Etsy. I think it’s vital that small time/part time artists, designers, crafters, etc. have a platform with which they can showcase and sell their goods.
That being said, I have little-to-no patience for actually browsing the site. I end up overwhelmed by the amount of cheesy headbands, ironic wallets and very “handmade”-looking home decor (I know… I’m awful). What I do like is when my much more patient friends scour the site and find truly exceptional pieces! Enter Sonia Sharma.
My dear friend, super stylish gal, and principal at Southern California-based Sonia Sharma Events, sent over some of her favorite Etsy finds for me to check out… and here’s the 1st taste of what she found by way of pillows* (the fastest, easiest and least expensive way to update the look of a room – or change it seasonally!):
Red & Gold Lace Medallion Extra-long Lumbar pillow… a perfect punch of color and exoticism for a sofa, chair or bed.
Red & Tuquoise Ogee pillow case*… I love the Moroccan influence here! Very faraway land-meets-city chic.
Also in Turquoise & Ultramarine.
And I’m personally swooning over this Pink & Dark Orange Sunflower color combo… It’s my favorite thing for Spring!
*I’ve noticed that a lot of pillow cases on Etsy don’t come with the forms – which I personally prefer because I’m pro-Kapok and Eco-fiber and anti “down” feather, so here’s a great resource for pillow inserts.
Thanks for being my Etsy spy, Ms. Sharma!
