Hello Betty



I currently live in a (teeny) tiny basement apartment with hand-me-down furniture. A few months back I was finally able to get a slipcover for our plush yellow love seat from the 80s. With the new gray slipcover also came the desire to add a few decorative pillows and a valance. I’ve had the fabric for a few months now, a few beautiful selections from the Hello Betty line, and have finally completed my redecoration project.

The pillows are pretty basic, but for two of them I added a covered button in the center. (I’ll probably add a button to the center of the 3rd pillow, but right now the pillow form is pretty lopsided…)


The valance is backed with a cream corduroy to add stability and so it hangs straight. I added some orange stripes down the sides, with covered buttons.


I think it turned out great and love that it makes our basement dwelling more habitable.
