Check It: Globally Inspired Pillows

You know how every fall there is that Crate and Barrel catalog with the same old jewel-toned velvet pillows that they try and pass off as a hot trend?  I wonder how many of those they actually sell.  I mean, it must be a significant number, but there are only so many moss green, goldenrod and burnt orange velvet squares the world can absorb, right?

After seeing the gorgeous pillow that Jessie posted about last week, I was reminded about how much more interesting a simple throw pillow can be when you incorporate fabric patterns that have been around for centuries.  Here are some great examples from etsy using globally inspired prints and techniques.

Happy Monday!
