quick change: seasonal pillows & throws

A quick change to your living space can be just switching out your throw pillows and throws seasonally. By changing fabrics and colors from lightweight cottons & linens to brushed wools and velvets in deep jewel tones, your space can turn from summer to fall in a snap. You don’t always have to invest in the entire pillow, just the pillow covers. I use this time to have my pillow covers cleaned and I carefully store them away until the next season. Designer Victoria Hagan always pulls a room together so elegantly. Pictured above is a living room she designed for a client in Los Angeles. She plays with many different whites on the walls in her design and here is such a rich, creamy buttery white on the walls which is the perfect neutral palette for yellows and greens. ┬áThe pops of color come in the pillows, throws and the Amritsar hand-woven antique carpet from India. Her book “Victoria Hagan Interior Portraits” has big gorgeous inspirational photos of the homes she’s designed. Below are a few accessories in our green and yellow color palette that are currently available (but of course they have many colors to choose from) from Crate and Barrel. They have a flat $4.95 shipping fee for pillows and some are on sale!

Pillows from $24.95-$39.95, and Lima Alpaca Citron Throw, $169, all from Crate and Barrel.
