6 Wilson Pillow Giveaway


I don't know about you but I love Etsy.  I've found some wonderful vintage items
as well as handmade products from shops around the world.  So when friend, fellow blogger  and interior decorator Carol Beck told me she was opening a shop, I couldn't wait to visit
and get a behind the scenes tour of her new virtual pillow shop called 6 Wilson.


Carol had her own custom drapery business so has great sewing chops.  She now works
full-time with an interior design firm in Rhode Island, handles her own design clients and has
now turned her dining room into a workroom to supply her Etsy shop.  Her sewing machine
is set up on one side of the dining table and her serger is on the other side.  


The rest of the table has all of Carol's supplies, trims and tools all set up and ready to go.



I would say Carol is a connoisseur of fabrics.  I tagged along on a shopping trip
to the fabric shop and I learned a lot about fabrics.  All of the fabrics she's using
are beautiful high-end, designer fabrics.  And no corners are being cut
in their construction.  All of the edges are serged, constructed with
invisible zippers and the corners are tapered to minimize dog ears.
Most of the pillow covers use the same fabric on the front and back but if
the back is different, it's an equally beautiful coordinating fabric on the back.

Let me a show you a few of my favorites and then you can head
over to Carol's 6Wilson etsy shop and choose your own favorite.









Aren't they gorgeous?

I just couldn't resist bringing one home to liven up my guest room.


So now it's your turn to choose.  Carol has generously offered to give away
one of her beautiful  pillow covers to one of you.  And you get to pick your own!  



All you have to do is visit 6 Wilson, choose the pillow cover you'd love to have
and come back tell me which one in your comment.  If you're an anonymous
commenter please leave an e-mail address or your name AND the city/state you're
from so we can properly identify you if you're chosen.

For a second chance, follow 6 Wilson on Instagram or "like" 6 Wilson on
 Facebook and leave your Instagram/FB moniker in a second comment.

This offer is open to anyone worldwide.


I'll choose the winner next Sunday, May 5th, and your beautiful
pillow cover will soon be on its way.

Visit 6 Wilson and good luck!

  2. The Lee Jofa Dragon pillow is so cute. I'd probably choose that. Custom shops are so cool. I have worked in several and could hardly stand wanting all of those gorgeous fabrics.

  3. I too would choose the Lee Jofa Dragon pillow. Just love it! Etsy is such an amazing place and now has one more wonderful designer to tempt us. Thanks so much for the offer.

  4. Just LOVE the Highland Court 18inch Blue and Cream Crewel Pillow. Not sure if your contest covers the more expensive fabrics, but if so that would be my first choice. There are so many gorgeous ones it is hard to choose! I also like the Clarke & Clarke 18inch White Embroidered Pillow with Taupe. 2nd choice!

  9. What a beautiful shop. So nice to see high quality fabrics and her craftsmanship! Well done Carol! I LOVE the one in your guest room (gorgeous photos, you stylist you!) but I think I would pick the Emerald and Ivory lumbar pillow (although I'd have to redecorate around it).

    I hope I win! :)

  15. I will be visiting Carol's shop again. Loved so many pillows it was hard to choose one, but I'd have to say the 18" Highland Court charcoal cut velvet is one of my favorites! Thank you, Steve, for this opportunity and for introducing Carol's Etsy shop. And thank you for blogging! I have been quietly following your progress for some time now; reading about your design choices and dilemmas. I always look forward to hearing/seeing what you've been up to.

  18. What a wonderful store with such beautifully chosen fabrics. They are all so lovely, but when I saw your photo of the Designer green leaves in white 20" pillow, my heart nearly stopped. This is exactly what I want to use on the window seat of my new breakfast nook. If I don't win, I would love to know what the fabric is so I can source it. Thanks for the chance to enter the competition.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So hard to choose! Thanks for sharing Carol's Etsy Shop. Designer 18 inch Flax Color Embroidered Linen Pillow would have to be my choice.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love all the pillows! But the Classic Black and White Silk Check would be perfect in my home

    ReplyDelete
  21. Absolutely STUNNING fabrics! The Schumacher Blue Gray Crewel with Gray Linen 20" Pillow is my favorite. Thanks so much for doing this!

    ReplyDelete
  22. These pillows are absolutely beautiful. There are many that I love, but I think that my favorite is the High End Designer Fushia Pink Orange.

    ReplyDelete
  23. First of all I already follow 6Wilson on Instagram and Etsy.....her pillows are gorgeous. Having a pillow giveaway is really cruel because it just feeds my addiction you know! I tried to decide...loved the green vintage Schumacher and the orange Imperial Trellis. You would have to tie me down and threaten me to nail down a selection!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Fun tour! Pillows can really give character to a room. You can play with colors and patterns you might not use on something large. Her workshop and shop are wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm still deciding between between the very first pillow - the vintage Schumacher emerald and ivory long bolster or the Knoll Jaipur in Jasmine. It might take winning to force a decision!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm also following on Instagram as tokyojinja! Thanks to both of you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks for a great giveaway! The pillows are beautiful and one of my favorites is the F.Schumacher Exclusive Trellis II 18" Pillow Orange and White Linen.

  31. Just visited her shop, everything is gorgeous! I would love the Knoll Luxe Jaipur in Jasmine for my bed or do I need the green vintage Schumacher? It would be hard to choose! Since I don't sew, etsy shopping is the perfect way to get custom pillows. Thanks for the chance!

  43. Hi there - I found your blog through my friend Lane's blog at Urban Orchard Interiors. I have a love affair with pillows but, previously, my two small children and what was then a puppy were determined to make it a one-way relationship - spills, chewing...you get the picture. They are older now but I have yet to replace the pillows in our den which is currently a sea of brown leather. The Kravet 18 inch blue and red linen paisley would be just the thing to add a little light to the room. Regardless of the outcome, you and your friend have inspired me to revisit my pillow obsession. Thanks for the opportunity - eestes72@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  44. WOW! I just spent 45 minutes on your site looking at all the fabulous pillows. I love pillows. I am a pillow fanatic. If I were fortunate enough to win a pillow I would pick the Blue & White Linen Floral w/ Ball Trim. Thank you for this generous opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  45. This was very hard. All gorgeous pillows so can I say all?? Kidding, I started eliminating with what wouldn't work with my decor and finally decided on "Designer 18 inch Citrine and White Damask Linen Pillow" tada! Thanks for the introduction Steve.

  47. 18" flax colored embroidered pillow. sorry i had to write that down while I remembered.

    They're all beautiful and very reasonably priced.

    Thanks for the introduction.

    You're a good blog friend.

  54. Lovely pillows! If I won I would have to choose between the designer Highland Court blue & cream crewrl or the HighEnd English designer blue & white floral with ball trim or the designer 18" cream embroidery on blue & white stripe. Love them all.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have never won anything in my life, except for when a nag paid $94 at Suffolk Downs in 1979, but I knew the tour would be a treat. Almost by accident, in the last few months, I've gotten involved in a navy blue/bittersweet sofa makeover, and when I found the 18" Paprika Velvet on the very last last page of 8 Wilson's site, I knew I had to tell you what a loving home it would find here! Thanks Steve, as always, for being such a great mentor and guide.
