While staying at several hotels this summer, I was inspired by some of their decorating ideas. I really liked the idea of having smaller square pillows. They were wrapped envelop-style with standard-sized pillow cases folded in half. We have several king pillows that my husband find too large and could be sized down into several small pillows.
Of course, I had to measure the bed scarf and pillow. The scarf measured 24″ wide by 94″ long, and the pillow 9 1/2″ wide by 25″ long with a 3″ overlap in the back. It would take about 3 yards of 54″ decorator fabric to make both. Extra fabric would be needed if runner were to be lined. I believe these beds were queens. Another thought would be to design a quilt pattern that would look great as a bed scarf (usable as a table runner also) and pillow (see example below.)
I loved these simple ideas for refreshing our sleeping areas.
Have a creative day,
