It’s no big secret that I am obsessed with Etsy. What a brilliant concept–allowing artists to sell directly to customers via online shops. Everyone has their one “why the hell didn’t I think of that” thing in their life. Etsy just so happens to be mine. I can spend hours sifting through the wonderful, creative art …and laughing at the epic fails.
A few months ago, I happened upon some pillows from dedeetsyshop. I just love the whimsical designs and detailing. I have the French Rose Pillow on my bed, which looks great. This pillow in particular is my absolute favorite, and it looks even better in person. My boyfriend Jeff is usually anti-decorative pillows, but even he admits he’s a fan.
There’s something to be said about filling your home with handmade, one-of-a-kind items, instead of your normal mass produced stuff. You can usually work with the artists on Etsy to customize details and colors, which is something you can’t do at Ikea. As an added bonus, price points on Etsy are usually a little less than your average brand name store. Win!
