Lumbar Love

Southern Living

I have loved the above picture from Southern Living magazine since it came out 2 plus years ago.  When I saw that velvet couch with the over sized lumbar pillow I squealed out loud!  I have kept it on my inspiration board for years now.  Then when The picture below came out in Lonny last year with the ikat West Elm lumbar pillow I had to have one.  It now lives on my bed. 
Lumbar pillows are one of those accessories that I find super appealing.  My favorite is when they are used over sized on a couch.  Anyway they are used it is a great way to add a bit of pattern and scale to a room.

Do you have any thoughts on lumbar pillows?


Make sure to check out a really fun Spring Series over at Interior Design Musings.  Mandi is featuring seven blogger's this week.  They are sharing their 7 favorite things of Spring.  I was tickled when Mandi asked me to be apart of this series!  I will be sharing my 7 favorite Spring things on Thursday. 

Be Well,


  1. Well, of course, now I feel I have to have a lumbar pillow if Heather thinks their chic! Love that SL living room too -- although I think when it came out, I was still in my new mom fog, so I think I saw it last year for the first time. I might have squealed too. :)

    Can't wait to see your picks!

  2. I love large lumbar pillows too! I have plans for one on our master bedroom bed. I have the fabric....just need to pull the trigger and have it made.

  3. Meant to write "they're" not their. Hee.

  4. I love lumbar pillows but do not have one yet. Will have to figure out what room I will buy one for.

  5. I fell in love with that Southern Living photo, too. And I do love the look of one big lumbar pillow, but I just don't think I'd be happy with only one pillow - so many fabrics I love!

  6. Yes, yes, and yes. I need more lumbar pillows in my life.
