Comforts of Home

Personalizing your home is important in achieving comfort.  Notice how you love to cuddle in a certain blanket, or look at a special piece of art.  Maybe you have a family heirloom that gives a sense of history or a quirky accessory that brings a smile.  Although just objects, they make you feel good.

We may not all have a talent for HGTV style decorating, but hopefully you know personal likes and dislikes.  By filling the spaces you live in with plenty of “likes” you’ll build a place you can take refuge in when times get stressful.  A new addition to my personal likes, is a lovely Monogrammed Linen Pillow Cover from Oh!Koey, which I’m placing on my new king size bed.

Oh! Koey is an online boutique and etsy shop where you can find handcrafted items personalized in your style.  You’ll find purses, tablet covers, camera straps and pillow covers in fabrics that inspire.

The minute I saw this Pillow Cover on the Oh!Koey website, I knew its simple, classic design was exactly what I had been looking for.  I’ve had to add quite a few pillows to fill my bed while trying to keep a variety of sizing and interest, so I selected a rectangular 12″x 24″ cover for the down insert I already owned.  (There are 4 other size options offered, both square and rectangular).  I love the personalization factor, too.  Oh!Koey has 13 popular embroidery colors to choose from, although if you don’t see a color you like you can let them know and they’ll work with you on that.  There are also a number of fonts.   I went with white thread and asked that a monogram representing the initials of me and my hubby be sewn on.

I received my Pillow Cover (* notice I said cover…….an insert is not included) soon after ordering, and it was beautifully made.  The linen was durable and the embroidery was thick and crisp.  As I expected, the linen needed a quick ironing to get the folds out from shipping, but once on my down insert looked great.  **Designer Tip:  Looking for a luxe insert?  Try Homegoods, or Marshalls……you can often find pillows on clearance there that don’t have the prettiest of covers but are cheap.  Simply discard the original cover and recover.  My down insert was only $9.99!
