Winter Blue Deer Pillow

Friday, January 25, 2019


When winter blues settle in, use a blue deer embroidered velvety pillow to give your home winter warmth.

While crisp and bright whites help cool inside on hot summer days, those same whites cool inside on cold winter days. Color mixed with white and warm natural woods give winter rooms more warmth than austere neutrals only.

Texture along with color provides more warmth. A blue velvety deer with embroidered highlights appears warmer than a cotton print. The thick herringbone fabric of the pillow also adds warmth compared to a thin lightweight linen fabric. 

Some designs lend themselves to different seasons of the year. Flowers for spring and summer, russet leaves for fall, evergreen hollies for Christmas, and snowflakes for winter are traditional design-season combinations. 

A blue deer pillow has a winter feel for me. Why is it we think deer are a winter design and not a summer design?

Layers of pillows and a coverlet are warmer to the touch than a bare wood pew. The quilted throw provides both visual warmth and actual warmth for wrapping around your arms and legs on chilly days and nights. 

With fabric weight, texture, and design a winter room can be warmed and cheered with a blue deer pillow and a throw. 

Here's hoping your home is snug and warm during the wintry days of December through March.

  1. Interesting point, which I share as well, about deer being associated with winter. Perhaps we are thinking of Santa's reindeer?

    I love the pillow and it looks perfect on the pew. Thank you for a close up of the pew. So much history there. It looks well loved and well used. I'm glad it found its way to your home!
