Guest Picks: Pillows, Pillows And More Pillows
For those of us with design ADD, pillows are our best friends. Just by swapping out a set of pillows or combining them in different ways, you can instantly give a room a new look (and keep you from redecorating your entire house). It's also the easiest way to add colors, patterns and humor to a space without making a huge commitment. That's why, despite the embarrassing number in my stash, I'm always on the hunt for great pillows. Here's a roundup of my latest finds.

Envelope Cushion Cover - GBP 80
Embroidery and pompoms in black and white? This pillow could not combine any more things I love. I see it as the finishing touch on a neutral bed.
DIANE von FURSTENBERG Spotted Cat Decorative Pillow - $145
Everyone needs a little animal print in their lives and this DVF pattern is one of the most stylish around.
Contemporary Decorative Pillows - $55
This great pattern could go from Chinoiserie to modern and would work in just about any space.
Alphabet Needlepoint Pillow - $29
Use these adorable needlepoint pillows for initials or to spell out whole words. The black and white takes these from granny chic to graphic and modern.
Primrose Decorative Pillow - $110
There's amazing detail in this block-print and mirrored pillow, and the color combination is one of my absolute favorites.
Pomegranate Bolster - $175
I'm currently coveting this handwoven ikat pillow. The large size is perfect to top off a bed.
Reversible Violet Banner Pattern Canvas Pillow By Thomas Paul - $78
If you like to change things up as often as I do, this reversible pillow is for you. It's orange zigzag on one side and violet block print on the other, so it's two pillows in one!
Indigo Kyoto Block Print Pillow - $88
This gorgeous pattern is block printed by hand and made even more luxe with touches of metallic.
American Flag Pillow - $115
Raised blue and pink velvet make for a soft and interesting take on stars and stripes.
Blissliving Home "Jack" Decorative Pillow - $85
I'm kind of addicted to Union Jacks, so it's great that there are so many fun versions out there, like this one. Velvet, linen, floral-print appliqués and metallic linen — this one has it all!
Citron Dec Pillow - $165
Yellow embroidery over blue and white polka dots is such a unique design. I would mix it in with more yellow and plop them all on a white sofa.
Cobalt Hong Kong Pillow - $55
This graphic pattern in pretty blue is so versatile I can picture it mixed with pillows in red, yellow, green and just about any other color.
Hessian Cushion, White - $89
Florence Broadhurst's classic Hessian pattern on hopsack — what could be better or more versatile?
Mongolian Lamb Pillow Cover - $54
Ever since I felt how warm and soft these Mongolian lambskin pillows are I've been in love. They come in multiple sizes in the most beautiful subtle colors. They are perfect for layering!
Blissliving Home "Sasha" Decorative Pillow - $65
Sequins and zigzag. Really, is there need to say more?
Atom Cushion, Zinc - $89
This is the classic hexagon kicked up a notch with silver foil print on linen. It would be perfect on a black or white chair.
Blue & White Lulu DK Pillow - $155
I can't get enough of this shade of blue. It's the perfect thing to freshen up a room for spring and summer.
Crest Pillow In Plum - $75
I'm all about lavender these days and this pale shade is so pretty, as is the embroidery.
Hand-Painted Pillow, Pink And White - $250
This hand-painted pillow is a work of art and definitely a one of a kind.
