"Pillow Addict IX" • Savvy Southern Style

So, I am losing track of all these addicts...originally I posted this as "Pillow Addict VIII" but it should be "IX."  Our group is growing and you are invited to join us...

Kim, from Savvy Southern Style has a classic, colorful, warm but edited style.  
I love visiting her charming blog and home 
(and her Wow Us Wednesdays feature is always fun).
She creates an elegant look and gets the most for the money (love that).
Kim, Pillow Fanatic
I was so thrilled when Mary Ann asked me if I could do a guest post in her pillow addict series. 
Then I stopped and thought to myself is she saying I have a problem? 
Who me? Okay, yes, I may have a slight addiction. 
Alright already, yes, I have a huge addiction. 
I can't help it. I go straight to pretty pillows when I'm shopping. I just love them. 
Let's take a look at a few. It would take a very looooong post to show them all.
As you will see in my sun room I am not afraid of color. 
In fact I feel better in a home with color than without.
I am also a big believer in mixing patterns.

This is a mix of patterns on the bed in one of the guest rooms.
Last winter I found these plaid flannel sheets and put them on the bed with some red velvet PB shams that my daughter gave me. I can't wait to put these back on the bed.
This is in the other guest room.
And this is the same room in the winter. Such an easy way to warm up a room is by adding darker warmer color with pillows.
The toile pillows in the master are my favorites (I think) and I love that they are fat and overstuffed with lots of down. They are my favorite find from Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta.
I love the texture and colors of this small pillow.
Another favorite little pillow that I found at Scott's. I love the mix of patterns in this room.
These are a couple of colorful pillows in the sun room.
Another one with great texture. Love the button detail on this one. Most of my pillow covers are from Pottery Barn. They really do make nice ones and not bad prices either. They are so easy to change. Just unzip or unbutton and take off the old one and replace with a new one. Then fold up the ones you aren't using and store them away to bring out another time. The easiest way to change up a room is by changing the pillows. There will be a few changes made for the cooler weather coming up.  Thanks so much for allowing me to share my pillow addiction love.

Thanks, Kim, for the great advice (and making me want to iron all my pillow cases).
You have me thinking it is time to change my summer pillows for Fall.  
Speaking of which, check out Kim's beautiful Autumn dining room HERE.

  20. Mary Ann, Thank you for featuring Kim, I have been following her FOREVER!! We both love Pottery Barn for Pillows and (especially if on sale) have several of the same!
