With a generous nod to those animal pillows from Areaware (which we LOVE), artist and blogger Kim from Yellow Brick Home created a tutorial for those of us wanting photo pillows of our own precious pets. I know I would definitely prefer a snuggly Wrigley or Smash pillow to a random dog (no matter how cute). If you’re in the same boat and eager to see your pooch in pillow form, hit up Yellow Brick Home for the full how-to. While you’re at it, check out her custom pet portrait shop, too!
Erin Flett is a graphic and textile designer from Maine. She designed and silkscreens these awesome dog pillows, and I want one in every color (brown, blue, and orange). Erin hand-silkscreens the pillows on 100% natural cotton bark cloth (pretty funny, right? Bark cloth?), and they feature a sweet portrait of Bruiser, the beloved dog of a family friend. My birthday was yesterday, so… HINT.
I’ve always gotten a kick out of these animal-shaped cushions from Areaware, so I was happy to see that they’ve added some new doggy designs recently! Which pillow pup would you bring home?
Cute wiener dog decor alert!
Spotted these beauties over at Urban Outfitters. The problem is deciding who sleeps on the butt.

DesignStory, my new go-to site for great deals on modern home furnishings is currently running a sale on Ilmiriita textiles by Russian designer Johanna Kunelius. ?Ilmiriita? is a Finnish word for an open quarrel or brawl, but Johanna explains that it has several meanings for her. It partially represents a source of inspiration — her grandmother Ilmi and also reflects her own struggle as a designer between art and commercialism.
If you sign up for DesignStory before November 9th, you’re entered to win one of 10 Eero Aarnio Soap Chairs, but even if you don’t win at least you can get a good deal on these adorable pillows (and much more)!
