Which Came First, the Pillow or the Urn?

Vase and Pillow

Antique Porcelain Urn with Brass Mounts and Distressed Pillow at Glam Vintage & Moderne

In this pic, the colourful distressed pattern on the pillow in the background mimics the vivid beauty of the mid 19th century urn in the foreground.

The distressed almost faded print on this pillow is on trend for 2013.

You’ve no doubt seen this look on area rugs where a vivid colour is used with a distressed print as though it  had been worn out over time. It leaves the impression of a rare antique find as opposed to a spanking new quality reproduction.

Using today’s distressed yet colourful  interpretations of accessories against the “real deal” like this urn lends credibility to your colour choices.

In other words, you’ll look like you know what you are doing.
