Spring Cleaning | Pillow Talk

Happy first day of Spring! (if you’re getting this on Thursday, that is…)  I was in Virginia last week for work and the high on Wednesday was like 37.  Yeah.  No thank you.  I’ll take my Florida 80s anytime.

There’s no place like home.

Since I’m sure many of your are trying to fluff your house for Spring ( I mean, Easter is only  a few short weeks away.  No, seriously.  It is.), I thought it was appropriate to share a tip and a deal with you today to help you get your spring cleaning moving right along.

The deal.

The Bluebird Shop is having a 15% off Sale on all of it’s pillow covers!  They’ve got some fantastic and fun fabrics AND the price is right.  Check out a few of my top picks for under $20.

The Bluebird Shop Pillows

keep in mind that these are only the covers so you’ll have to purchase the pillow forms separately. Which leads me right into The Tip.

Well, actually a few tips…

#1 When purchasing pillow forms (or pillows in general, for that matter), always go with the down-filled pillows.  They are a little more expensive, typically, but they can be fluffed-up so that they look super-full which is totally worth a couple of extra bucks.  My little trick is to buy pillows from the clearance section (you know, the ones in that very last aisle at HomeGoods), keep the form and throw the cover away.  Then, as long as the size is right, it doesn’t matter if the cover is ugly because you won’t be using it!

#2 If your cover is made for a 20 x 20 pillow, buy the pillow form that’s one size larger.  Again, it makes for super fluffy, full pillows which are the best!

#3 I wouldn’t recommend buying pillows that are any smaller than 18×18 (filled with a 20″ form, of course), especially if it’s for a sofa.  Smaller pillows can be ok for an accent here and there or maybe for a dining chair, but not for some place where they’re really going to get used.

Hope this was helpful!  See you next week!
