How striking is this pillow? I love that you chose to use such a bold blue behind the red flower. I think the contrast makes this pillow much more stunning and interesting than the traditional red and green. I want to make a couple sets of these pillows. I want to put one in my living room on the sofa, and the other set on my bed.
