Golden yellow is a color that "plays well with others." So these pillows are perfect in combination with other colors, or, as shown here, clustered in groups.
Swirls of ribbon and a liberal sprinkling of mother-of-pearl buttons add whimsy to this basic bolster. The ribbons -- gold on top of yellow, twisted for a two-tone effect -- were sewn in place with the buttons for a striking embellishment.
Taking its cue from an American favorite -- the quilt -- this pillow is high on homespun charm. Fabric squares of gingham, polka dots, flowers, and leaves team up in a checkerboard pattern, while yellow ties highlight the intersections. The decorative-edge triangles, folded and stitched on the diagonal, are the same size as the fabric squares.
Boxy pillows with button centers once played prominently in interiors. Covered in sophisticated matelasse, this pillow style gets a fashionable update. From the fabric-covered button to the piping around the edges, the attention to detail gives this one a place of prominence.
As pleasing to the touch as it is the eye, this plush velvet pillow has an unlikely mate: casual linen. The combination proves that opposites can, indeed, attract. A tiny feather adds yet another bit of whimsy and texture.
