It goes without saying that Krista and I are bonafide textile addicts and our personal homes reflect that obsession at every turn. So, when Krista was asked to submit an image of herself along with her favorite pillow to House Beautiful for their March 2014 issue, she knew immediately which one fit the bill.
Even though she could throw a rock in practically any direction and hit the motherload of textile goodness in her home, she immediately settled on a bolster pillow she customized from an antique ikat hand-stitched with suzani embroidery and then backed with Seema Krish’s Glitterati in Silver Natural.
Paired with both a John Robshaw quilt in Periwinkle and duvet in Pipal Indigo in her master bedroom, the pillow anchors a fun interplay of patterns and texture, all in a room sun soaked through draperies also made from Seema Krish’s Glitterati in Silver Natural.
We wanted to give a shout out to favorite designers Steve McKenzie and Suzanne Tucker, also featured in this month’s Send Us A Picture alongside Krista – their pillow selections are faves of ours as well. A HUGE thank you to House Beautiful and editor Julia Lewis for including us in their pages yet again, it is truly an honor! If you didn’t catch our prior House Beautiful mentions, check them out here and here.
So now it’s your turn… tell us about your favorite pillow and if you send us a couple of images to info(at)clothandkind(dot)com we just may feature you in an upcoming Show & Tell column.
