CMH Studio  New Summer Pillows from Cheeky Monkey Home!

Happy summer to you! I am thrilled to introduce Cheeky Monkey Home’s new mix-and-match pillow collection.  My new designs draw from timeless moroccan quatrefoil and wave designs, and the classic greek key motif.  Wool felt appliques in vivid pinks, blues and corals, are striking on soft oatmeal linen and creamy cotton canvas. In the Cheeky Monkey tradition, I design, hand-cut, and stitch every pillow with loving care and precision. Take a stroll with this summery bunch!



Below is a pile-up of passionate pinks, corals and peach pillows–don’t they all look just beautiful together?





Above are the greek key and quatrefoil designs in my favorite coral felt–shown on toothy oatmeal linen.  The quatrefoil design has handmade wool tassels trimmed with gold ribbon.  Yay!



Now for the navy—I never can get enough of nautical navy blue and white!  All of our summer designs come in these blue combinations, and you can see how well they group—or stand alone–to make a striking accent.  




The same designs look luscious in hot pink, coral and the softest petal pink–all lovely and fresh.  Something about a room with lots of contrasting pinks feels so indulgent and luxurious to me! 



And finally, featuring my wave design of repeating scallops, with one splashy wave that wants to stand out.  I just love these because they are vibrant, classic, modern and fun. (Also available in navy blue, not shown.)



Thank you for visiting Cheeky Monkey’s new summer collection!  All of our designs are available on the Cheeky Monkey Home Etsy Shop.  As always, I make most pillows to order and any design can be made for you in colors and sizes of your choice, so please contact me to make a custom order.  


Hooray for summer!  I say, let’s start relaxing today!


Inspiration  Cheeky Monkey Home Does Turquoise & Greige

This week I am pulling together the things that I love the most from my favorite designers, and pairing them with Cheeky Monkey Home pillows. Turquoise is fresh and vibrant, and I think it is especially beautiful set off by a warm beige-grey (“greige”).  As you can see,  a strong color identity can be all you need to unify a huge range of style and texture in your decor.



I love Caitlin Wilson’s textiles and home decor.  She is amazingly talented, successful and prolific (and so young!).  Her newest collection of rugs seem inspired by her international travel, and I love how they pair with so many Cheeky Monkey designs.  I have also been eyeing everything in the new Serena & Lily catalogue, and especially this gorgeous Palmetto wallpaper!  It feels rich, Indian, and very handmade to me.  


CMH Studio  Custom Elephant Pillows by Cheeky Monkey Home


Some of my best designs come from a request for a custom pillow—when a client loves a Cheeky Monkey design, but want to change the color or composition slightly to fit their decor needs.  This summer I had two requests for our elephant designs in turquoise, and I was excited to try them out!
