A fun client of mine has asked me to have some pillows made for her bedroom.  The trick was to find something that will work for her winter duvet and her summer coverlet so she can easily switch between the two without having a truckload of pillows to go along with the two looks.

Winter - warm silky gray with some gold undertones and a touch of red

Summer - fun red pattern shown below {3}

 What I've done is chosen a neutral pillow with a fantastic soft pattern and a bit more of formal look as the center pillow {1} and it will be flanked on either side with a lighter, floral patterned fabric with a thick 3" red border around the edge for some summer spunk {2}.  The backside will be made in the red fabric shown above so she can flip them over in the winter for a solid red pillow.

For both seasons she'll have two king size shams {21" x 37"} in the silver fabric set in front of the 3 Euro Shams behind {27" x27"}.  Total of 5 pillows which makes her husband happy since the idea of more pillows has him squeamish. {Think Ben Stiller going manic on his excessive pillows in that one movie.}
Fabricut all the way {except existing coverlet from Pottery Barn}

  1. The comedian, Jeff Foxworthy, once commented, "If you have seven pillows and a bed skirt on your bed you are either married or you're gay."

    I thought that was hilarious until I went upstairs and saw that I had seven pillows (now nine) and a bed skirt on my bed. With your combination I think you can't have too many pillows. Absolutely smashing.
