[ whole grain goodness ]

GRAINSACKS have become more and more popular and there's just something about them that says homey, comfy to me. They're soft, rugged and textural - the perfect pairing with linen and white slipcovers.


I ordered one months ago from a lovely Etsy seller in Austria with an enormous selection of antique linens {see her shop here}.

My plan was to make a couple of cushions for my sofa after being inspired by these great spaces:


Aren't these rooms lovely? 

I finally got around to making my cushions and here's a sneak peek...


I managed to get 2 cushions from one grainsack with a piece leftover that could become the front of another cushion, or cut into little lavender sachets.

I'll show you how they look on my sofa when I reveal my art grouping {yup, I got it done!} ... stay tuned!

Nice job!! I guess this is going to replace the burlap we've been seeing so much of,huh? Love this.

They're great! I think they go with almost any interior as well. I can totally see them in my modern home, my mother's traditional place or my daughter's shabby chic vintage apartment :)

What beautiful images. They all so scrummy, don't they? It's nice seeing a themed collection of photos - it makes me appreciate more fully the gorgeousness of these cushions!

Love your cushions and all your photos. I have just recently purchased my first piece of vintage hemp which I am going to use as a stair runner. I am thrilled with it. I purchased it from Christina too and she was such a delight to deal with, I certainly will be going back for more. Looking forward to seeing your art installation. Love Linda x
