color + pattern

One of my first etsy crushes was Plum Cushion. Shop owner, Melanie, creates amazing pillows using designer fabrics and sells them for very reasonable prices. I was recently discovered that she write an incredibly inspirational blog that among other things features DIY projects and photos of her home. It comes as no surprise that she has impeccable taste and a beyond gorgeous home full of lively color and bold pattern...

Just the pick me up I needed to get through the rest of the day!

The living room looks cozy and love colour scheme in a bathroom. Except the wallpaper in a bedroom, I feel dizzy just to look at it. I'll have a nightmare in there!

I would have never ever put together the bedroom the way she did, but I love LOVE it all! I suppose that's why I'm not the designer :-)

I crush on Plum Cushion, too. In fact, I just got new cushion covers from Melanie and they rock! Totally changed the room, they did. She's amazing!

The colors in that living room are amazing. And I was going to say she picked out really nice pillows, but then I saw that she made them! I'll definitely have to keep her shop in mind because these are beautiful!

Lovely!

I love her pillows and use them for clients all the time.

Can't believe I didn't realize she had a blog!

Thanks for the heads up!

Just wanted to chime in here that Plum Cushion's proprietress is none other than "Melanie," not Stephanie, but other than that this entry could not be more accurate: She is brilliant, lovely, and truly talented -- a fabulous design resource with a rare combination of style savvy, accessibility, and genuine charm.

Christina Song said...

wow the pillows are great! her designs are phenomenal :)

LC said...

I love her sofa! Any idea where she got it?? :) And the bathroom reminds me of a favorite livingroom in Domino that I know you loved as well... she's not the same designer, is she?

Sarah Z said...

I love this couch because it reminds me of my own! I have the impulse to go purchase everything to match!

Melanie said...

Thanks to everyone for their very nice comments!
LC - that designer is Mary McDonald (who I LOVE and used as inspiration for the bathroom shown).
The sofa is the "Palm Beach" from Schumacher. It's super cozy too. Well worth the investment.
Thanks again y'all. I'm blushing.
xx, M
