Paola Brings Luxury Home

Your pillow begins in my Litchfield, Connecticut garden. In Autumn, thoughts turn again indoors in anticipation of holiday celebrating. How about you? What’s new in your inside colors??? Pillows!

Aquilina means “little eagle” in italian. Aquilina is my sister’s middle name-beautiful, sometimes flighty and strong. Here, you can see light shining through her leaf even as dew sparkles across the surface. “They’ll know you by the company you keep.” No raspberries were eaten in this photo shoot. But she’s still a crowd pleaser. This photo was taken some time after it when a neighboring spirea plant was blooming gracefully over top. Marvelous partners.

The flowers of this hosta are unique in their size and creamy whiteness. People don’t often look to a hosta for its flowers. I’m a huge gardenia fan –Classic reminds me of that treasured hot house plant. 

This pillow is made from an image of a True Blue Hosta- with thick, seer suckered leaves that hold dew effortlessly.  We named it “Ancienne” because these days, “old” has all sorts of negative connotations. Old age is a very dynamic  and beautiful phase for this hosta.

Palma has soft, calm green colors that blend with any décor.  This pillow was made from a hosta called August Moon. Clean, green leaves allow light to play across an otherwise quiet surface with enticing results.

In fall, woodland colors are everywhere. Tan and brown and rust colors are synonymous with “Autumn in Connecticut”. Woodland is made from the photo of an end- of -season hosta leaf – after first frost. 

Rosa is one of my favorites, as was the color red for many years. I love roses of all kinds, especially large ones that smell divine and feel silky. 

Roses are one of my favorite flowers. They exemplify the sometimes unfamiliar juxtaposition of beauty and strength. This one called Pink, has a wonderful slightly blue tint to her petals. 

Perfection is in the eye of the beholder. When I see a rose this symmetrical it takes me by surprise. I had to name her Perfect and  she goes well with the other two. 

Peachy, is without a doubt, a wildly desirable pillow for rose lovers. She’s the least predictable of the roses, in that the lines are a little out of sync. Salmon-hued roses have always been a favorite of my mother- which is good enough for me.

    Congratulations. Guess your resolution for 2014 to finally make your pillows available to the awaiting public has come to pass. We really like the new catalogue of choices. Are we going to see Cherry Blossoms in the Spring?

    I purchased your pillows at the Litchfield Community Center Auction. They are absolutely beautiful and I receive many compliments on them. The colors are vibrant yet very easy to live with. Thank you for your contribution to the Community Center and for giving me an opportunity to own your outstanding work. Another great talent in Litchfield, CT!

    • Deborah!

      Thanks so much for your kind words. Paola pillows are a passion of mine but I truly make them for others to enjoy- so this is great to hear. I’m crazy about vibrant colors but try to be considerate because pillows really do need to blend in very different homes. Could I ask what your decor preference is? People have told me that the pillows need to live in a contemporary setting but I wouldn’t want to limit them. My roses are quite romantic and different from the greens for example. Thanks again for writing! Mary

    Mary,
    We live in an 1829 Historic home in Litchfield. I have put the pillows on an enclosed porch with antique wicker, tall brass floor lamps, Italian and Spanish pottery pieces so the environment is not contemporary. They work beautifully in the room and add a surprise element which I think every room needs. When I saw them at the auction, I knew I had to have them.
    I go into your website often and am always pleased to look at your beautiful pillows.
    Deborah
