Why I Designed Art Pillows

Kids love having bright, colorful soft pillows to cuddle and sit on in our home. For many years, I looked online and in local Toronto stores and couldn't find just the right pillows for our color-filled living room. Last year, I started painting a lot of abstract artwork with bright, bold brushstrokes and many layers of multicolor. My kids kept claiming these small paintings to keep in their rooms.

Then over the winter holidays when I was away with family, I shared the new artwork I made in 2018 (mostly acrylic paintings on board or canvas) with family and friends. My cousin who works in fashion in Montreal saw my Dot Series paintings and suggested that I design artwork for pillows and scarves. 

After many months of design and test work, I'm very proud to display the new pillowcases on my Art Shop!   

New Colorful Pillowcases are Made in Canada

 The new pillowcases come in super soft, smooth velveteen fabric or textured canvas fabric. Below is a bullet-point comparison of the two fabric options. Pillows have black YKK zipper closures, which are manufactured in Montreal, Canada. The fabrics are printed and the pillowcases are hand-sewn in Canada.

I tested my artwork on different fabrics before selecting this luxury manufacturer. I love that the pillowcases are made and sewn in Canada

Colorful Pillows Can Brighten Up a Room

Shown here are the colorful Dot Series 1 Purple Blue pillows on a brown couch in a plain white room. You can see how the pillows liven up an otherwise dull, boring sofa.  The multicolor brushstroke pattern pillows add amazing color to the otherwise plain sofa. 

Adding colorful home decor accent pillows is a great way to inject color to a neutral living room or bedroom. Many interior designers advise home owners to invest in furniture that is neutral and plain in color. Home decorators and stagers recommend buying accent pillows to add fun and interest in the space. Placing bold, vibrant pillows in a room is an easy way to test multiple colors and add fun prints to your home.
