{Help Me Choose!} Pillow Shams

You guys {or should I say "girls"...let's be honest!} I need your help!  My beloved curtain fabric arrived at my house on Tuesday and to say I was excited when I opened the package would be an understatement.  I can't wait to help my grandma sew these curtains and show you what we have up our sleeves :) 


The next step for my bedroom is picking pillow shams to adorn my bed. What's more fun than fabulous pillows?? -- not much, that's what!  I already have a few neutral colored shams, but I also want to add some pink to the mix.  Here's where I need your help. I've picked two pillow fabrics I love from Skoope Home etsy shop.  The covers I get will be standard pillow shams, not throw pillows.  
Here are my choices:

Which one would YOU choose?! Leave a comment below with your choice (either #1 or #2)
Thanks for your help :)
Happy Thursday!

  2. Ooooo, they are both fabulous! I love the colour scheme you're going with Michaela. My favourite is number 2. Can't wait to see your decision. I'm loving this "decorating your bedroom" process :)

  3. #1! It has a better contrast to the curtains. :)

  4. Great etsy shop, thanks for introducing me to it!

    I really love both patterns, but with the fabric for the curtains, my eye keeps going to #2!

  5. I like #2! The curtain fabric is gorgeous...love! Can't wait to see your room!!

  6. I'm drawn to 2. Love the amount of white it has in it.

  7. #1- your eye is drawn more to the coral color where in #2 you see more of the white and I think it is too much white when paired with the curtains.

  8. It's a close call, but I leaning towards #2!

  9. I would choose pillow 2. I think it fits better with the curtains and the fine detailing that both materials display.

  10. #2, I like the contrast of the more square shape in that pattern to the rounded flowers in your curtain fabric. The other looks too similar.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Definitely # 1... a much prettier contrast! :)

  12. It is such a close call, after staring at them for a few minutes, #2 definately matches them better, there is more white, and the pink isn't as dark.
    However, if you want something to be a little more contrasting, and you want the pink to really show then I would choose #1.
    I think it comes down to the look you're going for, although both pillow covers are very beuatiful, and either one would be a good buy.
    Hope this helps!

  13. I am definitely going to go with #2! The greek key pattern is just SO classic, yet young & fun. It would look so gorg on the bed, and accent the curtains perfectly! I love the fabric of #1 as well, I just think the greek key is timeless, and #1 is more of a trend.

    Good luck, love!

  14. I like them both...but to pair with your curtains I prefer #2. the other one has similar round shapes as the floral fabric and I prefer the more geometric square of the greek key with it. Great fabric choices!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. #1 has softer edges similar to those of the flowers, that would be my choice.

    ReplyDelete
  16. #1!
    It seems to be a bit more 'feminine'

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would go with option #1! There is more red overall, which brings out the red flowers in your curtains. Super cute! Love :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Option 2, the color is a better match. Option 1, while pretty, is too red. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  19. #2!!! Oh and I love the floral fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm loving two - I like how the boxy greek key plays against the pretty curvy florals!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love them both but I would go with #1.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would choose number 2! That fabric for the curtains is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  23. #1! while I love a good greek key, number 1 provides more contrast to the curtains.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Number 2! Number 2! Number 2!
    There is more white in it, compliments the curtains more than the cushion 1.

  25. I like them both but my instinct says number 2. The straight lines contrast with the soft lines of the floral curtains and the greek key is beautiful. Obviously judging by everyone's votes, either would be stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  26. What if you did both?? Would that be too much?? :) if not both, then definitely #1

    ReplyDelete
  27. #1 for sure... 2 is a little too busy

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like number 2 for it's more intricate pattern that adds a little more interest! But whatever you go with will be beautiful!

  29. Tough call! I feel like #2 coordinates better color-wise but pattern-wise I'm leaning towards #1. Apparently, I'm not much help but wanted to put my 2 cents in anyway! LOL Good luck :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. i vote one :) but you really can't go wrong with either!

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's really win, win, let's be honest. So cute. But I'd say the greek key, #2. It works best with the fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love greek key prints, so definitely #2 for me! Both would look amazing though--excited to see what you decide on :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. i'm all about the greek key!! so #2 is my pick!
    can't wait to see your room! it's going to be fabulous! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like #2...but I love #1, too. I will take those instead. Ship them to me. : )
