Some New Pillows

A while back, I lightened up my bedroom with some more pink and
green for spring and summer.  I have always loved pink and green in
a bedroom.  Actually, I love pink and green for clothing too.  The first
pillow shams I found were the pink and green check.

Then I found these two Ralph Lauren Yorkshire Rose pillow shams.  
It's a retired pattern, but on eBay and Etsy, it's not too hard to find.  The 
pink and green check shams are custom and have a double ruffle in a
complementary pattern.  I like them with the pink and white toile
plates and the vintage framed botanical print above the bed.

Then I found this ....  a sweet rectangular pillow in the same Yorkshire
Rose pattern.  The pillow is corded in the same fabric and has two
covered buttons.  It's a vintage style pillow which just suits this room.

At the end of the bed is a patchwork quilt.  It's not vintage, but it is 
made with fabric that is made to look as if it is.

This is the first time I have ever had a bedroom with light sage walls and
I love it.  Sage is such a restful color and it's a neutral because just about
any color will compliment it.

Stay cool everyone.  It's very hot and humid here and oh so tempting to
take an afternoon nap.  That's just what Bentley is doing right now.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Love your bedroom! I'm a pink girl also and I too think green is great with pink. I'm mostly using pink, white and black in my bedroom right now. A bit of a Paris theme also!

  2. Lovely bedroom, restful colours.

  3. I Love your bedroom especially the mix of florals and checks with the old-fashioned quilt! Growing up I had a pink and green bedroom too and a hand stitched quilt in green and pink and yellow which my great grandmother made especially for me. ahhhh such fond memories

    1. Your room must have been lovely, and especially the quilt made by your great grandmother!

  4. I love your pink and green theme, Susan, and the pillow mix is perfect! The soft sage green walls are such a soothing color.
    Happy belated birthday wishes to you and your hubby! I'm a little behind as having been in Colorado, but now back in the Texas heat.
    Thank you for visiting my post about my Mom's 88th birthday. Freshening up her bedroom made her so happy! It's amazing how shopping the house can change things up.

    1. Thanks Kitty! Are you sure that you want to be back in our heat??? Texas is scorching hot right now. Colorado temps are lovely

  5. Your home and decorating style are delightful! I always become so overwhelmed with decisions on how to decorate...
    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. So feminine and pretty! Reminds me of my single days!!! Pink and sage...especially the plaid!!!

  7. I have the hand knotted canopy over my bed, too, and it is in need of washing (from the ceiling fan debris!), but I hesitate to take it off, for fear I'll never find the corner openings again! When it first came, it had red yarn strung through each opening to indicate where it would fit on the posts, but I removed them. I guess I should just thread new yarn through those openings before I remove the canopy. Have you attempted to remove your canopy and wash it? if so, did you use a gentle cycle or hand washing method?

  8. thanks for sharing such a good article,Interesting topic.


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
