Pillow Collection Additions

I would like to introduce the first four throw pillow designs for sale through Carly Ahlman Design (www.carlyahlmandesign/store). All throw pillows will be sold in pairs and are "two-of-a-kind", so once they're gone, they're gone! Pillow fabrics are high-end, designer quality. All pillow backs have envelope openings so that pillow inserts can easily be removed if necessary. Mix and match different pairs of throw pillows in coordinating colors for a more eclectic look, or keep things simpler with a single matching pair.

Additional designs will be added on a regular basis, so stay tuned!

Four Poster Beds

Even though your bedroom isn't one of the "public" spaces in your home, its decor shouldn't be any less important. Build your room around the main piece of bedroom furniture, the bed. Accentuate this focal point by opting for a dominant four poster bed. It'll give the feel of a high-end hotel and create a space that will provide a nice, relaxing escape. Four poster beds can be found in a variety of styles and materials. Select a style that is more decorative to give your bedroom a more traditional and romantic feel. Or opt for a bed with simpler details for a more contemporary look.

Introducing: Pillows!

My latest endeavor is developing a line of one-of-a-kind (or sometimes pairs-of-a-kind) decorative throw pillows. Made with high-end designer quality fabrics, they are the perfect addition to almost any space. Select pillows in different patterns but the same colorway, or opt for multiple coordinating colorways for a more eclectic look. All pillows have a patterned or textured decorative front and a coordinating solid back with envelope opening (easy for getting inserts in and out when necessary).

Below is a sneak peek of two of the first pillows in my line. All items will be available for sale through my website, Keep checking back with the site for new product additions and pillow options!

Pantone 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Another year, another beautiful color. Pantone has named its Color of the Year for 2014; Radiant Orchid. It's a fresh, light purple with subtle a touch of pink. If you're anything like me, then you're constantly looking for ways to update your home's decor. Try incorporating Radiant Orchid into your home through a new piece of furniture, light fixture, or a few small accessories. This color pairs beautifully with a rich teal, bright coral, or bold yellow. Or simply let it speak for itself against a simple palette of white and gray. Face the new year by giving your home a bright new look!
