Decorative Throw Pillows

There’s no better way to classify our primary product line here at Stitch9.com than Decorative Throw Pillows.  When I imagine throwing things, I usually like to have more than one, but a throw pillow just means a small decorative pillow, so it can be singular.  In the case of Stitch9 each pillow is so original, but Emily often has pillow sets in her inventory, and you can certainly request a matching set for custom order.

Decorative throw pillows, can assist most bedroom design ideas, but you can also use them outside of the bedroom.  Even in the car, a special handmade pillow, can help you cheer you up when you are stuck in traffic, and they’re great for long days spent at the computer.  Stitch9 pillows offer firm support for the lazy lumbar, and help you maintain posture throughout the day.

Personalized Pillows

So the Season is upon us…Black Friday is looming.  There will be gifts, whether you celebrate Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, Xmas, or … maybe someone special’s birthday is coming up.  Rather than making a trek out to the mall, why not shop from the comfort of your own home?  Maybe while sitting on your own Stitch9 pillow.  Don’t worry- you will find such creative, original designs that your Loved Ones will know that they were in your heart and mind when you acquired their gifts.

What if you don’t see a handcrafted gift that calls out your friend or family member’s name?  That is when personalized pillows are the perfect gift.  “I don’t know how to sew,” you might say.  No worries, Emily does, and she would be happy to speak to you about just the right personalized pillow for you and […continued]

What is better than handmade artistic upholstery?  Handmade Crafts, of course!  Maybe you don’t want to put holes in your wall, but want to look upon something creative and unique?  This is where handmade crafts are the perfect compliment to your living space!  Or what better house/apartment warming gift?  Handmade crafts, create a space in your home that draws people into conversations, and creates a sense of well being.

Handmade

These days, in our modern world, so much of what we encounter is prepackaged, mass produce, and made without care.  I don’t know about you, but I find it refreshing when something is made by someone’s hands with thought, intention, and feeling.  I enjoy products that showcase an artist’s hard-work and dedication to their craft.  I feel satisfaction when I know that there was care and intention given.  If I know the artisan personally there is always an added level of endearment towards his/her artwork, when I enjoy it my home or office setting.

I love to receive handmade gifts.  While fine-art crafts are extraordinary, even novice hands can create cherished adornments for the home.  I try to make my own presents for friends and family, although sometimes there just isn’t the time.  Everyone can use a break, to rest their […continued]

Room Design Ideas

What is your favorite color?  I like strong, dark colors.  Colors that I know would be “too much” to paint the walls.  This is where accessories work perfectly to compliment more neutral tones.  When coming up with room designs, I consider what I want the room to feel like as well as the room size.  Especially, if the room is smaller, I like the the dominant theme to be lighter, neutral colors.  Tans, grays, and off-white are ideal for walls and large pieces of furniture.

To create the feel that I desire, I use art and accessories.  This is where bold colors come into play.  Frames, the art within them, decorative pillows…these are all useful in designing the flawless room.  Also, these pieces can be swapped out to bring about whatever mood I may want to express!  Sometimes the mood that […continued]

Bedroom Interior Design Ideas

Hunting down bedroom interior design ideas?  While Stitch9 pillows are appropriate for everything from your couch to your car, the heart of the pillow palace is in the bedroom.  Since you arguably spend more time in bed, than even the kitchen, you may wonder what the possibilities are, as far as enhancing what you’ve already got going.

Enhancement is a great option when looking for bedroom interior design ideas.  A custom pillow, or pillow set can be crafted to accentuate your bedroom design, and you don’t have to re-paint the woodwork, so save yourself the hassle and just accessorize.

If you haven’t started your bedroom yet, then you will probably be considering all the different options available to choose from.  Of course, options are nice, but price is always an issue.  If you can’t afford that Cezanne masterpiece you’ve been eye-balling at […continued]

Living Room Interior Design

Relaxing, socializing, reading, watching tv, e-mailing…what don’t we do in our living rooms?  This is the room that we share with our friends, families, and neighbors, so we aim to make an impression with our living room interior design choices!  Bright colors will get their attention!  However, it is probably best for the *couch* and chairs to be neutral.  These pieces of furniture can be tame while our accessories are the bold ones!  Although if you are feeling that wild red, leopard print, neon green, orange, pink couch or chair- go for it!  Just don’t expect your mother to dig it!

We can use mirrors, lamps, and ceiling lights to direct our guests attention and create flow.  A great way to express our appreciation for the creative and artistic is through our choice of rugs, curtains, artwork, picture frames, and most importantly decorative pillows!  We can swap these out when we feel like experiencing a new living room.  Why not have a variety to choose from depending on the mood that we are trying to create?

Bedroom Design Ideas

After a long day, many of us look forward to retreating into the sanctuary of our bedrooms.  This is where we can relax and unwind.  It is time to curl up with a book, our phone, or laptop.  This is where we go to be “far from the maddening crowd.”  So when we are looking at bedroom design ideas, we want to make sure to use comforting colors, create flow and ease.

I love walking into my bedroom to see my favorite comforter and pillows.  For proper flow, it is recommended that we do not have our beds in line with the door or under a window.  We also want to be able to jump into bed from either side.  And of course, we need comfortable, cozy decorative pillows that welcome us into our space.  Placed on the bed, not the […continued]
