Etsy Therapy: Perfect Pillows

by Amy on April 1, 2021

It’s an interesting phenomenon: after spending a bit of time on Etsy, even when we don’t buy anything and walk away from our “shopping expedition” empty-handed, we still feel the euphoric rush — and then the satisfied afterglow — of going on a shopping spree. The upside of that is, it’s free therapy and a perfectly harmless diversion. The downside, though, is that it sucks away all sorts of time and before we know it, we’re well behind on our schedule.

So, here at Modern Home Modern Baby, we’ll be doing a bit of personal shopping, if you will, on your behalf. From time to time, we’ll do a sweep of Etsy for a particular genre or style of home decor product and show you the best of the best.

Your time is precious, so we’re here to make sure you have as much of it as possible to do whatever you please… and you’ll still have the benefit of doing a little supersonic window shopping while you’re at it.

Today, we’ve rounded up the cutest of the cute in the pillow department. Above, Counter Couture hits a triple word score with its Scrabble tile-inspired pillows, which can be ordered in any combination of letters (in the interest of full disclosure: the author of this post just might have a trio on her couch that spell the word “YAY.”)

Next, we found so many awesome selections in the Festive Home Decor shop that we couldn’t settle on just one. In fact, we’ve snuck four into two images, just to be sneaky. There’s a duo of Greek-patterned cushions in red and blue, and then a sublime robin’s egg blue Ikat print, as well as some gorgeous antique script:



And last but not least, there’s a very cool and very personal option from Blue Leaf Boutique, in which your family’s first names can be custom-embroidered onto a one-of-a-kind family tree pillow. Very sweet indeed.


Want to see more from these shops in particular, or snap up one of the above for yourself?  Look no further than the photo credits below. Happy speed-shopping!

I love Etsy! I’d like to see you all give the link to the site directly under the picture. It would make it easier to find it and the artisan credit. Buy handmade!

Thank you so much for including my family tree pillow cover among so many great handmade artists and selections!

Thanks for the suggestion, Busykidshappymom… and Annie: you’re very welcome! We’re happy to share the best and brightest works of up-and-coming artisans as well as established designers. That’s part of what makes home decor blogging so much fun. :)
