Wake up eyeballs
Now before you all yell at me, "I thought you didn't like anything from the 70s!" you are right - I normally recoil at most brown, orange and psychedelic combinations in honor of the horrible stretchy crimpoline monstrosities we had to wear in that decade of bad taste - BUT this is different - take those retro patterns and colours and combine them with some calm white space, group them in complimentary ways  and I can be convinced of their merit - yes I can! These super pillows and quilts are produced by Canadians Ouno Design, who use, amongst other things, vintage scarves to produce these wonderful home wares. They also have an Etsy shop.

Those bedspreads might be a little too eclectic even for an avowed color-lover liike me, but those pillows are divine. I could see having a whole collection of them. Etsy is great!

Cool! We're with you....70's aren't quite our favorite, but we've been seeing these colors & patterns in our vendor's lines and we are finding that we like them!
You have an awesome blog - we found you off of Canadian House & Home...so glad we did!

Glad you like these - thanks for the comments!
It's funny how at a first glance the bedspreads almost looked middle eastern in their multi coloured randomness. I could definitely get obsessed with hunting for iconic vintage silk scarves- always looking for a new obsession, that's me!
