A Summer Arrival At My House

Would you believe I am still making summer changes to my family room?

Even with the whisperings of Fall that are going around blogland I will still hold onto Summer for a bit.

Yesterday helped me hold onto Summer with the arrival of my Summer pillows.

It took me awhile to find just the perfect fabric, but when I saw it, I KNEW it would be perfect in the room.

I have two 22 in. pillows with a 5/8in flange of the ticking stripe on the diagonal. I love a trimmed out look and the addition of the flange was the perfect touch for my room.

Here they are in their Summer Room!

They seem to add a coolness to the room. Just what I wanted!

They mix well with the other blues in the room.

The next Summer pillow is for the blue ticking sofa.

I decided for a clean simple look so I only have one pillow on my sofa! You heard right, just ONE pillow.

BUT! This pillow is a big one!! It is 15” X 44”

I would have made it even larger, but I have a plan for this pillow. Yes, there is more to be added.

The way the pattern layed out this was the maximum length I could get in order to have the  solid cream panel in the middle.

I am going to take this big beauty to have a very large blue letter, “P” monogrammed right in the center  of the middle cream panel. 

So there you have it! My latest Summer look for my family room.
