How do you compare pillows and a staircase?
Sometimes, color and pattern can create unlikely relationships when in reality there appears to be no connection except for a visual idea. The pillow collage [top]was assembled by an etsy seller from Utah to show the various patterns she sells in a single colorway – yellow. Mainly geometric yellow-and-white, the fabric patterns used for the pillow covers also include some animal prints and florals and a damask-print as well. (For anyone instantly falling in love with one of the pillows, I’ve linked the source below.)
A yellow-and-white stenciled staircase using Moroccan-inspired geometrics from Royal Designs – was created by Massachusetts decorative painter Carol Leonesio and posted on her blog, Painter Girl. The stencils in question are: Curved Connection, Eastern Lattice Small, Moorish Fleur de Lis, and Endless Moorish Circle. And actually, Leonesio says she did two identical staircases in the same house. When I first saw the stairs I immediately thought of the pillows! Conceptually, they are similar but unrelated — hence “decoincidence.” Perhaps the people who own the house will buy some of the pillows to tie things together for us in blogland.
