The Power of a Pillow

OK, I will admit to a bit of a pillow addiction.  I love me some pretty pillows.  Often, when decorating a room my first “go to” fabric will become a pillow.  Usually I am drawn to the colors or the pattern but it may be too much for window treatments or a large piece of furniture.  But for a sofa pillow…. yep, half a yard of that fancy fabric and we are off to the races!


See what I mean?  Your entire color palette can come from this one pillow.  Neutral sofa…green and blue stripe at the windows…a sweet little red side table…sage green and cream geometric rug…artwork in red, orange,blue and green!  Folks, we have a room design!  Easy, peasy.

( Well, not that easy or you wouldn’t need me, right?)

See how the color from the pillows pulls thru the entire room?  That’s how you do it.

Neutral sofa + pretty pillows.  Tah-dah!

Pillows don’t even have to be in a pattern.  The graphic look of these are oh, so chic.

You can work it in a bedroom….  Love the rug, BTW.

Or even on a porch. Looks like the perfect spot for a nap to me!


So there you have some pillow inspiration.  Think about the power of a single pillow next time you find a fabric you love.  Many a beautiful room was born from a single pillow.  Now that’s what I call a profound decorating statement!  Just call me your design guru…..

Time to Refresh..Renew…Reimagine your home!


A few months ago I came up with a new “tag line” for Perfect Home.  This image is from the billboard that was running them.  After the crazy winter we lived thru, it is even more appropriate!  Weeks of hibernating at home will make you reassess your rooms, right?  I know it works that way for me.  There is something about staring at the same old upholstery, the same tired curtains, the same dated lamps that says…. time to REFRESH…RENEW…REIMAGINE…. can I get an “Amen”?  No, well maybe it’s just me. 

Except I don’t think it is…..

This spring Perfect Home has been BUSY!  Quite a few folks must have been suffering from cabin fever because we have been blessed with lots of new projects, which makes us happy, happy.  But we can always find time for new clients so…….

How about a beautiful bedroom redo?  This is in my color combo of the moment, blue+green.  So fresh!

More blue and white…. this time in a coastal look with white washed plank walls.  Love the look of the wicker chairs and mercury glass lamps.


I’m always up for a POP of orange.  So pretty with blue and white.


How about REFRESH those windows with a cute new roman shade?

Or RENEW your bedroom with one accent wall in a striking new wallpaper?

Oh heck, let’s just REIMAGINE your entire home while we are at it!  That’s what we do at Perfect Home, remember?

So now that we have all recovered from those winter doldrums, and summer is finally here, are you ready for a fresh new look?  New fabric and wall paper collections just arrived and the latest rug samples are in.   I hope you will visit Perfect Home soon to see what we have “in store” for you.  We can reinvent those rooms in no time.  Promise!
