Luxurious, Navy Velvet

I have always loved the look of navy velvet. My grandmother did have a navy velvet sofa, when I was little; maybe that’s when the appreciation started? Navy velvet looks so luscious, dramatic, elegant and timeless. Here’s some great navy velvet inspiration.

Brandi was the first one to answer that call with her INCREDIBLE wing chairs!! She got the chairs super cheap via Craigslist and had them upholstered (by Stevens Upholstery in Carrollton, TX) in a suzani style fabric that she got from High Fashion Home!! Love them so much!!

>Pillows, Part 2! Eco-Friendly and Fair Trade Options

>Last week I did a post on pillows and got a suggestion, from Decorative Pillows, to showcase some eco-friendly and fair trade pillow options. They asked and shall receive.
For those of you not familiar with the term “fair trade” here is what it means- “Fair Trade is an organized social movement and market based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.” (Thank you for that explanation Wikipedia) And I’m pretty sure most of us out there know what eco-friendly means so I will just get on with showing the pillows! Enjoy! : )

These first 2 pillows are by Modernality via Etsy. The pillows are made of felt that is made from recycled plastic bottles! 



These next pillows come from a company called Gianna. Gianna offers lots of eco-friendly AND fair trade items but since we are talking pillows; here are some options from Gianna.


Organic Cotton Bubbles Pillow

 Organic Cotton Snowflake Neckroll Pillow


The next few pillows come from Humble Creations. They use organic cotton and non-toxic water based inks on their items.


Lattice Pillow (available in other colors too)
And last but not least, Ten Thousand Villages. We actually have a Ten Thousand Villages (a fair trade retailer) here in Houston. They sell items by artisans from all over the world.

Handmade Tree of Life Pillow



Handmade Hands Around the World Pillow



Handmade Rags to Riches Pillow



There are LOTS of eco-friendly and fair trade houseware options out there; just search the internet! A lot of the companies listed above sell other items too, not just pillows. Check ’em out!

>Gotta Love Nate!!

>Nate Berkus is such a cute, interior designing genius. There, I said it. And, I really love his show. Today he did a segment on wall design without paint. For those of us who live in apartments or lease condos and can’t paint walls, Nate offers his upholstered wall idea. On the show, he actually took a printed tablecloth (but you could use a sheet or other cotton fabric) and “glued” it to the wall with liquid starch. The liquid starch doesn’t harm the walls and is easy to remove when you need to. Check out the video and then get starching!

 That’s the tablecloth on the wall! Looks great and doesn’t look difficult to do. Thanks Nate. : )
