All of your fabric patterns are great!  I have silk pillowcases on my sofa and they look nice, but it's hard to get them to match texture-wise to any other fabric.  Are all the fabrics the same kind of material?  Did that effect your choice?


well, it kinda helped that i bought them together...but i try to stick to cotton since it's pretty durable and cheap...but since you already have silk ones, what i'd do is find other fabrics that are similar in color but don't have a crazy pattern on them.  that way you have many pillows, but the extras don't overshadow the nice silk ones...or....you could go crazy and choose fabrics that all have different textures so that it looks like you went for the "eclectic" look on purpose, just keep them in the same color scheme...

I love your candleholders - they're so tiki lounge! Do you mind me asking how you made them?

sure, it was pretty simple.  i had some small glass jars (ours were from artichoke hearts) and then i hot glued chopsticks around them and then hot glued some hemp around the base to disguise the messyness of the bottom...easy as pie!!! (not that pie is easy to make or anything...)
