Sparkle Plenty

July 30, 2014
If I had to choose two of my favorite things I may just have to pick whimsical accent pillows and anything sparkly.  When I saw the handmade pillows on Belquist I was immediately smitten because these accent pillows are both fun AND sparkly!

Almost all of the furniture in my apartment is colorful and fun, except for the elephant in the giant brown leather recliner.  Once I saw these pillows I knew they would be the perfect way to glam up this masculine piece of furniture.  I chose the Merida in Azure because I loved the glitzy geometric accent and the bold blue color.

Aren't the jewels a unique touch?

I paired it with a sheepskin from Ikea, which is another easy way to soften up a more masculine item.  If you are a woman who has a man in your life, you likely have a piece of furniture that is the "man's chair."  Even if it is a bit of an eyesore, you can easily make it a little more girly by adding soft and feminine touches.  Just let him throw the pillow out of the way when he's sitting on it :)

Note: Thanks to Belquist for providing me with this lovely pillow!  I love to feature high quality products that fit the theme of Life with a Dash of Whimsy.  Thanks to all my supporters who make this blog possible!

  1. I love that pillow! I would have to get the blue as well because I dont think my husband would like the pink one that I love...

    1. Thanks Laurel! Yeah I wanted the pink one too but thought that because I already have 3 pink chairs in this room I should probably go for something different...
