This is one seriously classy line of pillows. I’ve been crushing on the designs of AphroChic lately, and in case you haven’t heard of the collection yet consider today your lucky day! Jeanine Hays is the founder and creative director behind AphroChic and her Dreamland pillow collection is just great — modern and soulful. The colors and patterns are vibrant with tons of personality but also high quality and eco-friendly produced from 100% natural fabrics like Belgian linen, cotton and silk. My favorite: the yellow and white haze pattern – beautiful!




And don’t miss this… Jeanine authors a fantastic blog where she blogs about her life and inspirations, you simply must check it out (it’s blog of the week!).

    I love her style! The new pillows are fantastic. I wonder if that’s her living room? I love the relaxed lived in vibe!

    Yes! We love Jeanine (she would have easily been in Donimino were it still around) and we are giving away one of her pillows. She is a wonderful person!! Thank you, Holly, for giving attention to this wonderful designer!

    Oh Holly I am SOOOOOO happy you wrote about Aprho Chic today! She is giving away one of her large haze pillows in mimosa (the yellow) this week on The Bright Side Project. I will include the link (I hope that is okay).


    Jeanine is the sweetest most professional lady and I am THRILLED that you are giving her some much deserved attention.

    Thank you so much Holly for posting about our pillow collection, and to all of you for your lovely comments! A few of you have commented about the living room, and I would love to say it’s mine. Actually it’s the beautiful home of a friend who lives in Harlem. We shot some great photos there, and I just had to use his home because of the mix of modern and ethnic elements like that gorgeous rug! So glad you like it.

    I love the pillows! Add a lot of dimension, spunky-ness and colors to plain and boring furniture.
