It’s December first! The self-imposed moratorium on Christmas decorating is OVER! (Well, I will be honest; I started last night). But the tree goes up today. I get a lot of red and white (Danish flag colors) when I go to my parents’ house for Christmas, so my tree ornaments are silver and light blue. In a small space like an apartment, I want to go overboard on the decorating. Thus, my orange throw pillows are out, and I go hunting for their seasonal replacements in today’s Wednesday Wants.
Not over-the-top flashy, but with a nice shine to it and a deconstructed look. I’ve actually been wanting this pillow for everyday use; the fact that it would go with my Christmas decor is just a bonus.
More traditional and seasonal, this white and blue pillow would pick up the snowflake accents on my tree. I like the clean, folksy look of it.
This would be my number one choice if it were velvet on both sides. I’m a huge texture person; the joke is that shopping with me is like shopping with the blind–I have to touch everything. So velvet is highly appealing to me. Plus the color is perfect.
Similar to the first pillow in its understated glitz, this one has a little more symmetry to it. Plus it’s a sturdy linen/cotton blend. The Dwell Studio designs are amazing, in general.
Is it too over-the-top to get Christmas pillows? Or is this a common thing?
