Love this pillow! This beautiful design and cheerful golden yellow color brings a bright spot to my guest room. I chose the down insert which adds to the softness of the wool knit. A sure comfort pillow.

Updates

My specialty is taking a design motif and expressing it in different textile mediums. Here, the tops for my 'Balinavia' pillows that I designed in on original print fabric, an original knit and a luxe embossed velvet.
Didn't the tonal magenta Merino wool, and the white USA-grown wool yarns knit up into beautiful, wide stripes? Such a warm & joyful pillow.
Rich magenta fine-wale corduroy, and silk sari strips in gorgeous oranges & golds? Heck yes! Loving the uncommon fabric combo of the Verona Tower Stripes pillow.

About

Uncommon Artisan Pillows, for Your Signature Vibrant Style

Your home decor is an art, as are HomeWorkshopKathy's vibrant, handcrafted throw pillows and textiles. Hatch or complement your distinctive room designs with the abundant color and uncommon motif you'll find here.

Designer Kathy Barlow is inspired by her love of, and her photographs of architecture and nature.

Mix and match from Kathy's color-coordinated collections of designer-quality throw pillows, proudly handmade in exclusive, limited editions in the USA.

Kathy carries a common motif or theme throughout a collection, while mixing up the textures and her textile art methods. Her designs include hand screen printed, hand embossed and hand embroidered elements, as well as original fabric patterns.

She also adores the place where Tech meets Textile, and can be found laser cutting designs at her local maker space, or knitting a new pattern on her hand-manipulated knitting machine.

How did Kathy's design business come to be?

Kathy Barlow of HomeWorkshop.com was a fearless design blogger. To write more than design fluff, she phoned interior designers she had only read about. She Skyped across continents and worked her thesaurus into the night.

She strolled the reclaimed wood of designer rooms, while her SLR snapped fab details. She even produced on-location videos and Tweetable special events with big-time designers. But a funny thing happened to the girl that told the Technicolor tale.

She jumped into the story.

Hearing first-hand what propelled artists and designers to produce jaw-dropping goodness, Kathy realized that she never felt more satisfaction than when she designed and made her own pieces.

Her love of all things textile was deep rooted, with a passion for sewing Home Decor, vibrant needlework and art quilts. She frequented textile exhibits and jammed her bookshelves with vintage textile volumes. Color and texture caused her to happy dance.

So Kathy created her own line of luxurious, home decor textiles and pillows.

The love affair with design continues. Only now the designers are calling Kathy.

It's all good.
