Flower Power

Florals are big for Spring and by big we mean BIG! Ok well maybe not this big- a little extreme Ms. Bradshaw! But florals are indeed very hot this Spring with celebs...


...and in the home of course! One day you will see Jessica Alba wearing a flowing frock of black and white floral and the next, you will find almost the same print on a pillow at Pottery Barn!
As we are getting ready for Spring, us here at Material Girls are very excited about all the fresh new pillows coming onto the market! Flowers, flowers, and more flowers! Makes a prettier room even more breathtaking!
I love this ad for Duralee. Very cute! They don't need a lot of floral pillows- just one in the middle seems to be the focal point of this sofa

How can you add a little floral into your Living Room or Bedroom? Here are some of our favorite pillows that have just arrived in stores:

Pillows from Gumps- pure wool woven by Nepalese artists- available in green or orange!
Pretty in Pink! Love these floral beauties from Designer's Guild- U.K.

Z Gallerie finds- I love the colors in this dupioni silk pillow!

Another chic find from Designer's Guild- USA

Jayson Home and Garden produced these lookers- I love how understated and mod these are! Your couch will be the most stylish in town with this year's hottest new color...gray!

William Sonoma Home introduced these into their Spring '08 Collection. Absolutely love the brown and white combo- so fresh and so tropical! Makes me wish I was on Spring Break!

Modern floral from West Elm- young and simple looking, I see these in a mid 20 year old's condo or loft.

Tracy Porter designed these- you know how I love pink and green! The pattern here is very eye catching. All of the intricate detail that went into this larger 22"x22" pillow makes it more understandable why the price on this one is a bit steep! ($284 per pillow)

I always seem to find something great at Target. This brown Victoria Hagan embroidered pillow for only $29.99 is well worth it!

With St. Patty's day having been this week, I am still in the Irish spirit. How could you not love these artichoke green and brown pillows- the leaves almost look like little shamrocks! Adorable!

These girly pillows from Anthropologie would look lovely in a woman's bedroom on a white loveseat or chair!

I actually know a few people who have this pink pillow shown here from Pottery barn (one of which is my sister!) Even just this little punch of color thrown in with a few other zebra pillows makes her solid neutral sofa come to life! Now on sale!

Lauren - thanks for the comment. I adore that living room in Renea's new house too - so glamorous!

I love the Duralee ad too and went there the other day to get that lilac zebra print, to die for! Too cute!
