Poppy Cotton Vintage Fabric Pillow

Poppy Cotton Vintage Fabric Pillow

We just can’t get enough of Melissa Cotton. Melissa has been featured several times on Inhabitat now - most famously as the author of the ever popular How-To-Make-a-Terrarium article that we ran last year, but the girl is more than just a creative green thumb. Melissa also has a line of home accessories that are as playful and inventive as her terrariums, called Poppycotton. Inspired by the colorful (and slightly creepy) pop-art aesthetic of 1960’s cinema like Rosemary’s Baby and The Stepford Wives, Melissa scours flea markets and vintage stores looking for bold vintage fabrics that hearken back to an era when homes weren’t afraid of a little pop and color. She recycles these unique retro textiles into vibrant pillows, lampshades and wall hangings, creating the perfect colorful accent pieces for an otherwise minimalist room.
