DIY baroque print cushion cover – Redecorating part 4

baroque-cushion-DIY12

Hello hello !

Here we go for our third day of redecorating my new video space and today it’s a baroque print cushion cover (by the way, I have a question… do Americans say pillow instead of cusion ?! I have seen many projects online saying pillow and I know many of my lovely readers are American, so is it weird that I say “cushion”?!!). I love baroque prints and mixed with pompoms they’re the perfect Anthropologie-style mix. Will we ever get over that brand ? I don’t know. Maybe not. It’s so full of inspiraton !

As you can see, the window seat cushion cover inspired me for colours again, the flowery fabric really has been my palette for the whole redecorating project. I love dipping into one of the fabrics used for colour inspiration, it means that everything turns out just right !

I don’t just want to share the tips with you today, I want to share the tools, too !
