Lately, when decorating a bedroom for some of my clients, I have shown them how a simple body pillow can become an impressive decoration to their bed:
It is not an original idea, but I do not see them used very often:
Look how this pillow below made the whole bed into a statement piece:
One reason I love these pillows is because it gives many different options for finishing the bed:
The actual pillows are easy to find online and at stores such as Target and Wal-Mart for only about $10.00 each. It is the body pillow case that is hard to find anywhere. I understand that these pillows are supposed to be used to cuddle and sleep with, but I just want to decorate with them!
Since I could not find any attractive covers to purchase, I bought an (ugly) cover and copied it with some spare fabric I had:
Very easy to sew up the sides and end with a zipper or even ties to close:
These pillow cases above from Pottery Barn have since been discontinued. Since my clients seem to love them so much, I have asked my seamstress to make me a few that I will offer for sale. She can make the nice edging and buttons and other decorative touches that I just can not do. More on that later. Here are just a couple prints we are thinking of using:
Don’t you think they really dress up and finish the bed? A very creative statement for the bedroom!
I have also seen these long body pillows on sofas:
But I do not like the look as well on a sofa- I think they are too large and awkward to arrange on a sofa or a chair.
Do you use these body pillows for decoration? Don’t you think it is a great idea to use for layering?
