My Heart is Set

Don't you hate it when you have your heart set on the perfect print, the perfect color , or in my case the perfect sham.  Oh yes, I will not spend a dime until I find the perfect Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis European sham (HUGE thanks to Ashley for the pointer).  And if when I find the perfect pillow, I may very well spend a fortune.  It's an investment!

Turns out I've been smitten on this print since February, as blogged about here.   I had just forgotten about it with all the other lovely distractions in life: duvet shopping, Lonny magazine July/Aug issue, and Pinterest!  You follow?

I have searched high and low for a set of European shams in this exact or nearly identical print.  The one pictured below is a beauty sold by WillaSkyeHome on Etsy.  She has an Ahh-mazing collection.  Seriously, I could pretty much spend a month's (or two) paycheck at her store alone!  One problem, they are not Euro shams {cue sad face}.  These are 20 x 20, and I must have 26 x 26.  Six more inches really does make a world of difference.

I'm almost tempted to purchase the fabric myself but... ok, two problems. It's expensive!  And since I have no sewing capabilities what-so-ever, I am staying far, far away from that idea.  So if any of you design enthusiast have any further pointers, I'd love to hear what you have to say!  However, keep in mind that I'm not a huge fan of DIY.  I prefer BIY (Buy It Yourself).  I'd die for your patience!

On that note, here's a little Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis eye candy for your enjoyment.

I hope everyone has a HAPPY Friday!


  1. I am here to save the day!♥♥ I happen to sell fabric that looks just like the Imperial Trellis pattern! For only $34/per yard! See it in my Etsy Shop (below).


  2. Thanks for the tip Candace! However, I was hoping for ready made shams. :( I'll be sure to keep you in mind if I can't find any.
    Thanks again!!
