It’s no secret that I’m digging animal accents for 2013 (just check out the DHome and Shoebox Decor articles) and I am so excited to finally share these custom Belgian Nubby Linen pillows with the embroidered rams head.
First, a little background info about this project. The concept was directly inspired by the client’s zodiac sign, aries. She has a few special pieces of jewelry and accessories that she’s collected over the years. We though it would be fun to incorporate this into the space, but didn’t want it to scream “zodiac sign.”
The custom-made pillows from Ankasa used a special embroidery technique to create the stunning 3D effect. These are the initial sketches of the concept for the pillows. Pictured below is the strike off that we approved for the final design.
And here’s the finished product: a chic interpretation of the aries sign. I love how this represents something near and dear to the client’s heart and creates a one-of-a-kind animal accent (one of my very favorite trends for 2013).
