Moroccan Wedding Blanket Pillow

diy moroccan wedding banket

Today, I am bursting at the seams to share this DIY. I feel like I say this every time, but this project has been looming in my mind for a while now.  Ok, so maybe just around 2 months, but still. I doubted whether I could do it with the resources I have in my town and searched online for fringes, trims, sequins, and whatnot.  At the end of the day, I bought one hundred percent of the materials in this project from my local JoAnn’s. Go figure!

Moroccan wedding blankets have been on the design scene for a few years now and are just starting to go more mainstream with offerings at West Elm, Urban Outfitters, and Pottery Barn. They are all still pretty pricey, however, and the cream pillow from Pottery Barn is still close to $80. Not my version, though.  This beauty came in at just $29 for all the fabrics and trims. It’s a tad pricier than most of my DIYs, but I definitely think it’s worth the cash, sweat, and tears.

Most of the fun of this project was placing the lines of alternating fringe, sequins and mohair where I wanted.  Although this project is a snap with a sewing machine, you could do it all by hand if you don’t have one since it’s a whole 12 straight lines. I decided to take the help and use my machine this time even though on most projects I spend ample time trying to figure out how NOT to use the sewing machine.  You guys know I hate to sew, right? So I did it anyway for this project because I just wanted to do it that badly.  If you feel the same, keep on reading for the full instructions (and more photos)!  Continue Reading…

Preppy Cane Pillow DIY

DSC_4804

I’m pretty open about the point that I am not huge on color, but I did add some navy into my decor this year and I’m loving the results. As I transition my home into the warmer months, I was looking for a way to add a summery feel while still sticking with my navy and neutral scheme.

Cane patterns just scream summer to me but, of course, finding something in my desired shade of navy wasn’t super easy.  Like so many things, I just decided to go ahead and make something instead.

This navy cane patterned pillow was so downright easy, you’d be silly not to try it.  It rolled in at under $10 too, which makes it all the more satisfying. A few strips of ScotchBlueTM Painter’s Tape Delicate Surfaces #2080EL and I was on my way. The materials needed are simple enough: Continue Reading…

Silhouette Stitched Pillow

If you’ve followed House of Earnest for a while, you’ll probably know that my love for my dog is probably rivaled by my love for pillows (don’t tell her that), but this project brings the best of both worlds.  A simple stitch on an open weave pillow covering is easy to configure in any shape.  I considered a quirky word, but I’m kind of over ‘word’ art in my house.  I thought a nice big heart would be darling, or even a more abstract stitched pattern for the design included would be amazing.

I landed on the silhouette idea in an effort to mesh something classic with something current and glam (like the metallic finish on the pillow) for a bit of design contrast.

Dog Silhouette Diptych

It was very easy, and anyone with a spare 30 minutes could do something similar.  I stitched it up just last night while watching Downton Abbey. I felt a little like Martha Washington or someone – darning fireside – but it was over in a flash.

Hand Made: Scalloped Edge Pillowcases

I found some giant (1″) rickrack in the fabric store the other day and knew I just had to use it for something.  My mind immediately went toward showcasing the scalloped edge only, allowing it to take on a classic, sculptural element rather than a be too young or sweet.

I love that the black against white makes it feel like more of a luxe edging that pops.

It wasn’t too difficult, and you don’t need a sewing machine!  If you like where this is going, KEEP READING for the full instructions!

Have & Make: Graphic Triangle Pillow

It’s a little known fact, that you can buy transfer paper to feed through your printer.   I used to make shirts and bags for every possible occasion in school, but this past weekend it just hit me to use it for a blank pillow that I was going to throw out because it was so boring.

Side note: Make sure your pillow insert can be removed before trying this quick project

If you have a blank boring pillow that needs a new lease on life, make something graphically inspired by whatever is out there (right now, triangles).

Have a FANTASTIC Wednesday, guys!

p.s. Do you want to see my very own special plate from yesterday’s post?  Like House of Earnest on Facebook for additional photos and musings!

Soapbox: Antler pillows

I made it a point yesterday to get out of the house and ‘have the stink blown off of me’, as my mother would say.   Really, it’s just another way to say that you’re getting some fresh air… Regardless,  I was in one of my favorite stores, Collier West (where I always find things I lust after but cannot afford), and happened upon a printed antler pillow.

While in your mind you may conjure up ideas of camouflage gone wrong, may I convince you … these are amazing.

Above at Collier West where I love it with contrast piping on the couch cushions.   It is a nice contrast between preppy traditional and modern rustic.

What does it work with?

The above mood board from Polyvore pairs this pillow with a slew of other items that give an overall edgy natural luxe feeling.

If the tromp l’oeil version of this trend isn’t for you, you might like a more direct graphic style.

Either way, I LOVE these antler pillows for the modern twist they can give to a space while keeping the overall feeling of warmth.  I hope you love them too!!

DIY Linen Tufted Headboard

DSC_7410_2

diy tufted linen headboard king

I’m ecstatic today to finally share with you my completed headboard and transition to the king bed!  As we spoke about last week, Matty and I got a new mattress from Tuft & Needle, and were able to upgrade to a king! Previously we wouldn’t have been able to fit a King sized mattress up our bending staircase, but the mattress from Tuft & Needle came in a 12″ x 12″ x 60″ box, so it fit up the stairs just fine.

With my previous queen bed, I’d made a linen headboard with a nailhead border.  The past design took just an hour or so to complete and was under $60.  I wanted to up the ante a little bit this time and create a headboard that was inspired by the restoration hardware chesterfield style that I loved.  After we got the mattress in the room, however, I realized that a rectangular headboard would cut off way too much of the built-in bookcases, so I decided instead to create a scrolling design which allowed more of the bookcases to be visible.

For this design, there was more work involved due to the tufting and creating covered buttons.  The majority of the cost of the entire project was actually wrapped up in the 2″ foam that I used to creating deep tufts (whereas on the last headboard, I just used batting).  None of the steps taken were very difficult, but I can certainly say that covering over 40 buttons was certainly time consuming.  All in, the total cost was $318.  I used lots of JoAnn’s coupons (60% off this weekend!).  Definitely make sure to get those coupons out of the mail (or just use their app) before buying the materials, as I saved about $250 using them.

Aside from the actual headboard, I dressed the bed in the dotted West Elm sheets, a while West Elm duvet cover, and various throw pillows.  I still want to explore a few more pillow options to be closer to my original vision (and add it a little more brown and navy)!   Are you interested in seeing the step by step headboard tutorial?  Keep on reading for the full material list, photos of our process, and PDF with plans and measurements.   Continue Reading…

Friday Faves 11.7

friday faves 11.7

ONE I’ve heard great things about Martha’s new One Pot Cookbook!  I might treat myself to it this weekend since it’s just $16 on Amazon! TWO these gilded stemless wine glasses from World Market would be perfect for entertaining from Thanksgiving straight through until Christmas and at just $19 for a set of four, they’d make a great gift too.  THREE If you want a great live wreath that will bridge the holidays, try one made of Bay laurel.  It smells awesome, but is totally appropriate for before Christmas. This one from McFadden Farms is just $34 which is a steal for a live wreath.  FOUR isn’t this rust colored arrow rug gorgeous?  Would you ever believe it was just $149 from Urban outfitters?  I might have to snag it! FIVE I’m still on the lookout for pretty B&W patterned pillows for my bedroom makeover.  These from Chanee Vijay Textiles are printed on greige hemp which makes them look more rustic and natural than start black and white can be. SIX if you’re looking for a good beverage bucket for entertaining this year, look no further than this planter from Ikea.  It’s just $19, which is such a deal.

 

Happy Friday guys!  Have you ever actually had a week where Friday gets here too soon and you’re left with a long to-do list still?  I know its a little crazy, but I kind of wish I had just one more weekday to get some things done which would allow me to enjoy my weekend a little more.

This weekend, I have friends coming in from out of town and we’re going to do all of my favorite columbus things and eat at my favorite columbus restaurants.  We’re starting this morning with a trip to Pistacia Vera, doing a little Short North Shopping during the day, eating tonight at 3rd & Hollywood.  Tomorrow we’re heading out east to Wyandotte Winery then doing dinner at Basi Italia.  Of course there’ll be a trip to Jeni’s thrown in there as well.  Any suggestions to show my guests?

Have a happy November weekend, all!

Neutral Cool Master Bedroom Re-Design

bedroom inspiration

I told you guys last week in my ‘things that are making me nervous’ post about how I need to revamp my master bedroom – and quickly!  We ordered a new king mattress from Tuft & Needle (upgrade from our current queen!) and although it was a bit of a quick decision at the time, I then got to thinking about all of the things that must be updated along with the mattress.

Our current bed has a grey, white, and lemony yellow theme and I really like it, but am a little excited about the opportunity to change things up a bit and get closer to my overall design vision for the home.  I want to add more rustic indie feeling with the worn, aged neutrals and a very neutral theme.  The photo above from Decor Pad really stood out at me as a great representation of what I’d like to achieve. So here is my plan:

bedroom design

BED  Our current bed is a headboard with a metal frame.  The headboard was a fun and easy DIY, so I know that I can take a stab at making another one.  This time, however, I’m going to tuft it and also try to upholster a whole bed so that a bedskirt isn’t needed. I am going to cover the bed in a natural linen that really stands out from our dark gray bedroom walls.

DUVET I’ve talked before about my love for all white bedding and although I’ve loved the Crane & Canopy Dove Gray pintuck that I’ve had for the past year, I’m going with all white this time around.

SHEETS  I love pairing patterned sheets with a solid duvet.  Mostly because I don’t like big patterns and think the solid duvet calms pattern so that it doesn’t overwhelm my small bedroom.  I love these reverse dot sheets from West Elm in a camel color that will tie back to the headboard and add a warm level to the otherwise black and white design.

SHAMS adding in a different pattern or color through shams is always a good idea.  I love these block print border euro shams from Dwell Studio because they are a classic border design, but still have an Indian flair with the block print design.

RUG I’ve been wanting a place to use my Asta Rug in our home!  I think this will be a great opportunity since the floor will be cleared out.  Plus, the easy black and white pattern enforces the global theme without being too much pattern.

THROW PILLOWS the throw pillows are really going to be the thing that ties the whole look together.  Varying neutrals in global, but minimal patterns bring together the essence of the look. I’m mixing brown, navy, black, and cream in various textures.  I am leaning toward a grey/brown sheepskin, a stark black and white geo, a grey/brown basket weave, and a turkish kilim pillow in blue and black.

How do you guys like it?  It’s definitely a change from my current bedroom, but still holds a lot of the design elements that I use throughout the rest of the house! I’m excited to get started on the tufted bed this weekend!

Friday Faves 10.23

Friday Faves 10.23

ONE light lavender is one of my favorite colors for this winter.  A little card case is the perfect place to get a trendy color into your everyday (check out their hair calf style too!) $20 from Gift Shop Brooklyn. TWO for my new bedding scheme, these herringbone patterned sheets from Crane & Canopy are on my list! $169 for King. THREE the smoky, undefined line of this ‘dipped’ pillow makes it so modern! $159 by Rebecca Atwood. FOUR if only I didn’t have a glass door!  This hexagon door knocker is perfection! Someone needs to get it so that I can live vicariously through you! $85 in Oil Rubbed Bronze. FIVE what a statement piece! The price of this glazed terra cotta salad bowl is a bit steep, but it would make a wonderful gift for that hostess to has everything. $225 from Huzza. SIX I just bought four of these grey linen storage boxes to stow away some summer clothes, let the winter prep begin! $16 from Ikea.

 

Happy Friday, guys! I am getting into full wedding flower mode over here and am spending the majority of the morning cutting stems, getting all of the blooms into water, and cleaning vases.  After flowers are processed and vases are clean, the arranging will begin!  Follow along on insta for some photos of the process!

After the flowers are delivered tomorrow, I’m going to lay low and spend some much needed time with Matty. Sunday I think I’m going to sit in my office and organize the next two months my life – menus for parties, decor to make, and gifts to buy (christmas is just two months away!).

What’s on your weekend agenda?
