So, if it works for my wardrobe then why not work scarves into my home decor? I'm particularly transfixed by scarves with bold colors and patterns and I love a statement-making pillow, so naturally, I want to turn every scarf that I fall in love with into a pillow. It seems that I'm not the only one with this problem...a favorite Etsy seller of mine, Sayso Design, offers an awesome selection of Vera Neumann scarves-turned-pillows.
Anyhow, I've decided to start putting my ideas into action. Although it's not technically a scarf, here's a batik (that I inherited from my grandmother) that I've been using to play pillow dress-up...
These scarves by Theodora & Callum would be great if you're looking to get something similar to my batik:
If you've been following this blog for a while, you might know that I've been toying with new color schemes for our guest room. Instead of using Schumacher's Chiang Mai Dragon on an oversized bolster pillow across the bed, I'm thinking of using a vintage scarf to make a pillow. Maybe the fun polka-dotted one below...
I still have the urge to use the Chiang Mai in the Mocha colorway...and with the blue in the scarf, I could easily make it work. If money was no object, I'd use the CMD on one of the following:
- A custom, super tall, nailhead trimmed headboard
- The wingback chair in the corner
- Floor-to-ceiling custom drapes

Until I win the lottery, I'll just keep dreaming and the scarf pillow might have to stand alone. I suppose that if I won the lottery, I might just buy three identical square silk scarves from Hermès (like the ones shown in the first pic) and make them into euro pillow shams. The lottery-winning dream world is so much more fun, isn't it?
Have a wonderful weekend!
