Ulrika May Pillows

Oh Ulrika May, what you do to me! Ulrika May Pillows are so pretty, made from vintage silk scarves and repurposed into perky pillows. What a nice way to begin the week – bursts of juicy color!

Ulrika May Pillows

These once-loved pieces have all their own stories to tell. Originating from the forties, fifties, sixties and seventies they have been kept precious at a time when life was at a slower pace and possessions were lovingly cared for. All scarves have been collected by Ulrika from antique fairs and flea markets in Great Britain and other cities around the world. ” What a charming description. I’m so glad I found out about these lovely pillows via LiviaConcept.

How was your weekend? I hope that you had a lovely one! And speaking of juicy color, wait until you see the beautiful home of a blogger I had the opportunity to interview recently — stay tuned for that going live on decor8 after lunch today. :)

    Looks like they would be so soft and comfy. Is it nap time, already?

    Oh lovely – the sheen of the silk really brings out those vibrant colors. What a great way to reuse!

    Silk pillows stuffed with feathers always have such a comforting feel about them and silk always shows off colors so nicely. What a nice way to repurpose an already beautiful item! Thank you for sharing!
