This is a nice little decorative pillow, designed by Thomas Paul, who apparently loves birds as much as I do. The outside is cotton (it unzips so you can wash it), and the inside is stuffed with feather down. It measures a little under one foot by two feet, and it would look great thrown on a chair or a bed.
I'm a big fan of this duvet set. It's covered with birds and flowers, which are reminiscent of a cool botany or zoology field guide. Plus, it's made of 320-thread-count cotton and comes with two matching shams.

This cute little throw pillow, which depicts a group of six birds, was designed by Eleanor Grosch, an illustrator from Philadelphia. I like how each bird is a different color or pattern, and that the pillow is sewn in the shape of the birds instead of a typical square.

I've convinced myself that if I had a yard, I'd be kicking back in this right now. As it is, I'm measuring the landing on the fire escape, and the prognosis isn't good. (Surely people could scooch around it if there was a fire, right?) Maybe I can just put it my living room, close my eyes, and picture myself in San Juan.

Though the print on the outside is of a geranium, these pretty little sachets are filled with organic lavendar. You can tuck one of the four and a half inch squares into a drawer, your pillowcase, or any place else that needs a little freshening up.

Maybe this has to do with the fact that I just watched Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette the other night, but I'm really drawn to this decadent velvet pillow case. Like the film, it's mostly eye candy. (Unlike the film, you don't have to stare at it for two hours.)
