Ulrika May Pillows

July 20, 2009

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!
