How was everyone’s weekend? We had a productive one over here renovating- speaking of, I owe you a staircase and entryway update. I’ll work on that for Wednesday or Friday because all of our parts are here and things are well underway. Today, I’ve got a fun post lined up- this Best of Etsy is perfect as we look toward cooler months ahead! I’ve been seeing so many beautiful block prints, patterned pillows, and desaturated colors beginning to make their appearance. With textiles on my mind, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to share some of my saved block print pillows from Etsy for a little early fall inspiration. If you’re beginning to think of switching out your summer textiles for different colors and patterns this fall, these pillows are a classic way to do just that. Click through for a beautiful roundup filled with hand blocked inspiration!
It’s no secret I love a good block print. They always feel timeless to me, and it’s nice to see they have been gaining popularity lately. I still have my blue block print pillows on my living room sofa (pictured above), but soon I’ll be swapping them for darker colors and patterns for fall.
Neutral patterns look lovely any time of year, but even better- they’re easy to pair alongside deeper hues for the cooler months ahead. Another pattern pairing tip? Mix patterns of varying scales… contrast is the best way to ensure they look perfect paired alongside each other. Ready to see my top picks from Etsy?

There are so many beautiful options in the mix, it’s too difficult to narrow down my favorites. I’d be happy with all of them! Do you have any top picks or pairings?
Jordan and I have been photographing a lot of new arrivals for fall lately- including plenty of pillows. We have some amazing similar options we’ve been adding to the Tuesday Made shop… all ethically handmade & hand blocked from women-owned businesses! If you’re looking for superb quality or pillows that include a down insert (not just the cover), definitely hop over and check some of those out.
As I mentioned, these printed pillows pair well with other patterns of a varying scale or color- but they work especially well alongside solids or stripes. That’s personally my favorite look! Think ticking stripes, windowpane patterns, plaid, and tartan for fall. It has me excited to layer as the weather cools! We’re already having cooler nights over here, which means fall is around the corner.
To everyone who has been having air conditioning issues this summer (because there seem to be a LOT of us in that boat), hang in there! Cooler temps are coming. Is anyone else itching for fall this year? We had our units serviced and repaired last week, as opposed to replacing them because that is definitely an expensive & unexpected cost we were most certainly not budgeting for. Why does it seem the most expensive home ownership items are never ones that make an aesthetic change? Ha. I’d much rather sink $30k into a laundry room renovation, as opposed to replacing two A/C units. Sheesh.
Here’s to a good week ahead! It’s jam packed over here… aside from work, renovating, and more doctor appointments, Emmett & I are finishing our advanced scuba certification this week… which means we’re taking the camper out to the lake for a couple days of diving. We also ended up selling my SUV, so we’re unexpectedly vehicle shopping. Remind me to stop overcommitting and planning next summer, ok? It has been a whirlwind, but all good things! Does your week feel equally as crammed? Mondays. I hope you get to relax a little. Let’s make it a good one!
