There’s really something to be said about decorating in black and white. Even the novice decorator can do it well! It’s really easy to accomplish a sophisticated look and really difficult to “mess it up.” One of my favorite makers of eco-friendly textiles in black and white (or more accurately, black and natural), is Ortolan Organic. And their new line of pillows, debuted along with their new website, does not disappoint.
I am seriously in love with the graphic New Girls pillow, shown at top above. I have never been much of a comic book fan, but there’s something fresh and fun about this design by artist David Foote that just pulls me in. It’s the type of pillow that could easily be the centerpiece of your decor and one that all your guests will ask about. And as if I needed another reason to love it, 10% of the proceeds from the sale of this pillow will go to St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital.
My biggest problem with pillows is choosing which ones to use, because I have so many favorites. Any of these, however, could easily be part of my decor arsenal for years to come, and they’d never go out of style. That’s what I call smart shopping.
