Yesterday we introduced you guys to a new mini-series that we’re doing this week called Pillow Panache. It’s all about giving you inspiration for what to print onto pillows outside of the usual pictures. We started with black and white photos, that could seamlessly meld into any color scheme you already have. Today, we’re doing the complete opposite and showing you what our perfect color-punched couch would look like.
If you’ve been around for a while, or follow us on Instagram, then you know that we’re kind of a fan of color. If we could paint the walls of our office hot pink, we totally would, and we kind of did when we applied all of this peel & stick. So, when we started thinking about what types of photos printed on pillows inspire us, we grabbed all of the bright colors and fun pictures that we could!
We tried to combine some of our favorite things: food (the egg pillow and the pineapple), toys (that frenchie and dinosaur), fun things (the ferris wheel and color-blocked walls), and color (that hot pink pillow on the left). All of these photos have something about them that can be easily duplicated, and all you need for a bright background is some foam board and your favorite paint colors.
A style like this would be perfect in a space where you need images that inspire you, like an office or maybe your breakfast bar if you’re not a morning person.
Also, I just want to point out one thing about that hot pink pillow. A lot of people think that they should be printing a picture of someone or something, but sometimes a splash of uninterrupted color is all you need, especially if it’s a specific color you can’t find in the store. Say you’re looking for a teal that’s more blue than green but it needs to be lighter than what you’re finding and it needs to match that same teal in your curtains. All you have to do is take a picture of the color you want, import it into Photoshop and color pick it to get the hex code. Then, during the ordering process in SnapBox you can just enter in the hex code and print a solid color. Now you have an exact match to the color you need! Easy peasy.
So what do you think? Would you be brave enough to print bright colors like this, and where would you put them? Let us know in the comments below and make sure to check us out on Instagram because we’re going to have a ton of pillow-fun!
