If you want to make your home feel cozy and warm, interesting and unique pillows can really make it happen. 

While working with a client to establish a new plan for their living room, I found a fabulous source for Kilim Pillows. 


She started with a beautiful new leather couch prior to engaging my help, and what she requested was a cozy, warm, down-to-earth look, while maintaining a modern sense.


This room is meant for the whole family to pile into for lounging and playing games. I started with a light, soft, (did I say soft?), soft rug that everyone could sink their toes into.



Then I added a chair (with bold stripes) to keep it modern but down home,


A smaller settee for more lounging,


A larger settee for more people to snuggle in (opposite the couch)


A few fun and inexpensive side tables


Excellent lighting of course. A console table behind the couch for lights and books.

 And to top it off, some beautiful hand made Kilim pillows created from antique Kilim rugs in Istanbul.  All of the Kilim is inspired by geographic, historical patterns with spiritual traces from Anatolia to Central Asia. 


Just mix them up with some Crate and Barrel solid cotton velvet or tweed pillows and you will create a unique and cozy environment.
