You think crafting is a yawner. Fortunately, you can rest your weary head on a soft, welcoming pillow made by someone who doesn’t.
Chicagoan Meg Stevens started crafting at age 9 (her Christmas cross-stitch ornaments were all the rage). She took a break to pursue interior design (she does big-name hotels) and now is back at it with her own home accessories biz, White Nest.
We’re fans of her inspired, crafted pillows in particular. Stevens uses everything from thick threads to jute twine to neatly stitch birds (on branches, wires, in flight), peonies, circles, and other modern-meets-natural designs onto two-tone textiles (heavy linen, velvet, cotton, wool). Pewter studs, leather flowers, and other textured accents add a hint of flair.
Choose from 18-by-18-inch squares (one for each couch corner) and 12-by-21-inch kidneys (good for beds or chairs). She does custom work, too. Just pick your fabrics, colors, and accoutrements, and she’ll brighten up your nest.
