Pillow Heaven


Let’s start by taking a nap or two. Good old Winnie the Pooh knew the importance of a solid nap!

Anyone else a huge fan of naps & pretty things?! If so, todays blog post is for you! When I started on my most recent yacht, the pillows on our beds were over 4 years old. It goes without saying, that they were pretty gross & needed to be thrown out ASAP. The ladies over at Centerpiece were amazing at finding us the exact sized pillows we needed (the pillow cases onboard did not fit standard sized pillows!) and created washable custom pillow protectors for us. With the new Pillows onboard, it was the perfect chance to add a little more personality to our cabin, so I bought us super cozy decorative pillows – perfect for an afternoon nap!


Below are a few of my favourite pillows that I’ve found online!



This Pompom pillowcase from Zara Home is currently on sale for £9.99. You’ll have to buy the actual pillow separately online. With it being white, it will add some brightness to your cabin, especially if you are on the bottom bunk!

I cannot wait to start designing my house one day & buy a million & one pillows. I hope this post has inspired you to get creative in your cabin!

Big hugs!
