Decorating With Scarves Week
Eddie Ross just put together a helpful blog post about making pillows from scarves. His tutorial reminded me of the Bouvier sisters. (The other day I mentioned that in the 1970s Jackie O had sofa pillows made from her own Liberty silk scarves, and I think many of you already know that her sister, Lee Radziwell, had dining room walls covered with lacquered scarves.) A glance through vintage decorating books indicates that many other tastemakers enjoyed finding new uses for scarves too, especially in the late 60s and throughout the 70s.
If you are not a hands-on person, The Baobab Tree, a UK-based shop, sells pillows made from vintage Liberty scarves, as well as untouched scarves that can be used however you please.
