What's missing in this photo? COLORFUL pillows! One of the easiest ways to change a decor and add warmth, is PILLOWS!

And pillows are my specialty!

I love designing pillow covers and creating my own textile designs. A pillow collection can change the whole style and vibe of a

photo-HiroshiKumura/Unsplash room. Keeping your existing pillows and just covering them, to create a whole new look. No closets full of pillows of every season, just flat as a sheet, pillow covers! I use them for the holidays as well to create a fresh seasonal decor.

You can make a design impact with one color scheme. Here are my Indigo Pillow Covers in action! All of a rich indigo shade with coordinating patterns. I love the fresh, crisp look of blue and white, it is a classic combination! Shop Indigo Pillow Covers here

When choosing a pillow insert, make sure it is a smidge larger than your pillow cover so your cover gets filled to every corner. Here is a quick chart from Savvy Apron.

One of the color trends of 2022 is color everywhere, mixing retro inspired prints and colors!

We got ya covered! The Prism & Mandala Pillows inspired by Ikat patterns and the beautiful Mandalas of Buddhism. Mix and match and create a bright and exciting space with COLOR! Shop Randi K. Prism Pillow Covers here ; Mandala Pillow Covers here
