Seat Cushions by Grain de couleur

Ooo, more eye trickery, and this time it benefits our derrière. Grain de Couleur specializes in digital printing on fabric, and as you can see here, they’ve created these seat cushions that have the look of other various materials, front and back. They are a bit on the smallish (and poofy) side, so take note of the size before buying a full set for a dining chair makeover.

RELAX Quilted Picnic Blanket

Of course, the weather is not anywhere nice enough to have a picnic outside, but there’s only a few of these ‘RELAX’ blankets around, and you’d be upset if you missed out just because it’s January. Seeing as the blanket is quilted and looks rather robust, it would do well as a sit-and-dine surface*. Plus, we all need reminding to stop and smell the roses, no matter what our surroundings may be.

Scholten & Baijings’ Comforter Cover and Pillow Cases

Hello, hello. Does this mean we don’t have to settle for boring bedding? Yes, if you don’t mind the $228 price tag, which actually isn’t too bad considering what quality bedding cost nowadays. You might recognize Scholten & Baijings’ color and pattern work from their delightful tea towels, blankets and pillows, but now they’ve branched out into the bedding arena, thank goodness, with what I can only call an excellent shot at success.

Cloud Pillows

If you’re handy enough with a sewing machine (or needle and thread) you could whip one of these up in no time, but for anyone else that would prefer immediate gratification, these cloud pillows by Donna Wilson are slightly on sale from Tate Online Shop. Also, if you’re into the whole cloud shaped pillow thing, check out the super cute Giant Ricestorm Cushion from noodoll (it has a tiny lightning bolt in its hand).

Curve Cushion

If you’re in need of a cushion that doesn’t clash with your existing color scheme, black and white is always a good bet… and, as a close second (or third, rather) grey is an excellent choice as well. These two cushions from CUSTHOM have a simple circle design that add just the right amount of interest. And, if you like these pillows, you’ll like the Curve Mugs (£18.50).

InterAbstract Shower Curtain

To make a long story short, I had some horrible shower doors from the 1950’s which I removed after hating them for 2 years. I’m planning a rather large bath remodel which involves moving walls and basically redoing everything, so my goal was to make the current bath nicer with a budget of $100, knowing that I’ll be spending way more in a few months to build an entirely new bathroom.

After removing the shower doors, I needed a shower curtain that wasn’t too expensive and was also pleasant to look at. After looking through several hundred shower curtains (I’m obsessive, what can I say?), I finally found this little minimal beauty for under $20. I’m very happy with the purchase and more than likely I’ll keep it in the remodeled bath as well.

You will also need a plastic liner with this.
