Erin Napier’s Pillow Looks Like an Heirloom but Costs Under $50
The one thing fans and followers love most about Erin Napier’s home is that it looks “lived in.” Though the “Home Town” host’s sense of style and design knowledge has clearly been put into practice in her own home, there’s a coziness and a collected aesthetic that one can only get through living a busy life full of friends and family.
And although the throw pillow that makes an appearance in Napier’s recent Instagram looks like it’s part of that heirloom collection, it’s actually a piece from Pottery Barn that you can buy new to hand down to the next generation.
The Dara Velvet Pillow Cover from Pottery Barn is 100 percent cotton and is actually reversible (the other side is a solid color). It’s part of an entire Pottery Barn collection of pillows inspired by classic antique kilim works that are usually hand-knotted by Turkish, African, Middle Eastern, or Asian textile artisans.
The worn look to the velvet works perfectly with Napier’s lived-in aesthetic.
And speaking of heirlooms, one eagle-eyed fan asked Napier if the photos on her gallery wall were labeled with the subjects’ names. “If so what a beautiful idea,” the person commented.
If you look closely at the pictures behind a sleepy Ben, you’ll notice the vintage-style labels at the bottom of each black frame. Labeling family photos (especially ones from past generations) is an awesome way to remember and learn more about your roots and keep family and loved ones at the center of any home design.
Something borrowed, something new is the name of the game and, as is true with all her designs, Napier is nailing it.
