More Pillow Talk

If you saw our previous post "my pretties", you would realize that we are currently in accessory mode.  We have been amassing ideas for on-going projects these past few weeks while simultaneously prepping for an upcoming photoshoot.  I tend to default to the tear sheets and cards hanging around on my desk, and I remember these beautiful pillows by Brooklyn based textile company, Aviva Stanoff, on our walk-through of the Architectural Digest Show last month.  I am really drawn to the technique and the beauty of these textured textiles.  The company employs an interesting process by pressing real materials (feathers, leaves, etc.) into the fabrics, each done individually by hand using beautiful silks as the base.  I remember running my hand over the impressions on the pillows and was sold.  Click here for more images from the wonderful Aviva Stanoff.

Thought the styling of the pillows to be quite beautiful too.  Can't wait to see these in person again.  I love Brooklyn!
