...because home doesn't happen overnight.

Many of you have asked about the throw pillows in my home.  Nearly all of them hail from Etsy. Today I’d like to share with you 3 Etsy sellers that I’ve bought from time and again because I just can’t get enough of ’em. These aren’t the only sellers I’ve bought from and been thoroughly satisfied with, but they’re definitely a few of my faves.  Check ’em out.

KainKain: Modern and Contemporary Home Decor

{Green Fern Throw Pillow}

{Teracotta Sunflower Throw Pillow}

{Chrysant Throw Pillow}

KainKain specializes in embroidery.  The motifs are usually nature-inspired {think leaves and flowers} and of high quality.  Since this seller is from Indonesia, shipping can take a while but it’s well worth the wait.  I’ve always been 100% satisfied with the craftsmanship, and the prices are hard to beat.  Many covers sell for less than $25.  So far, the pillows covers I’ve purchased all have zipper closures. In case you aren’t into leaves and flowers, KainKain offers other designs as well: coral, birds and even snowflakes for the holiday season.

Marie’s Cosy Cushions: Home of Very Funky Cosy Cushions

{Contemporary Green Design Funky Pillow Cover}

{Duck Egg Blue Flower Pillow Cover}

Marie’s Cosy Cushions are simple covers with envelope closures but made from thick cotton fabric.  The prints are unique {to the US anyways} and modern with many different color schemes available.  Several of the covers come as pairs for less than $30/pair.  That’s a steal!

Nena Von: Specializing in Decorative Designer Pillows

{Imperial Java Trellis Lumbar Pillow}

{Black Trellis Lantern Lumbar Pillow}

This third seller is the priciest of the 3 I’m mentioning today but still affordable.  Nena Von uses truly designer fabrics.  I’m especially fond of the geometric and trellis prints.  I have a hard time choosing only one {or two!}.  Why not buy more than one?  Etsy shipping rates normally decrease with multiple purchases from the same seller.  Pillow covers weigh next to nothing so shipping charges aren’t too awful.  You can cover a pillow you already have or buy an insert for cheap from any craft store.

If you’re looking for a way to freshen up your home on a budget, Etsy pillow covers might be worth looking at.  So, what do you think?  Have you purchased from Etsy before?  Do you like the idea of me featuring Etsy products for the home here on House*Tweaking?  I’ve got a list of favorites I’d love to share with you!

I was not compensated for telling you how much I love these Etsy sellers and their products.  I just love sharing good stuff.

I’ve come out of lurker-dom to tell you how much I love your blog! I purchased from seller KainKain back in the spring & was super happy with my experience (and my pillow cover)! I was a little nervous ordering from someone so far away, but was glad I decided to. Nena Von has great stuff too…just haven’t been able to pull the trigger yet…

I have also bought a couple of pillow covers from KainKain and they are beautifully made. Esty has some amazing things, but its very addictive!

First of all, LOVE your house! I took note of all your paint colors. I saw that you had letter pillows – could I ask where you found these? Thanks!

Gemma – I’m not sure what letter pillows you’re talking about. I have # pillows on my porch pew. See how I DIY’d them here….
