Find your muse

Now that spring has arrived, if you’re anything like me, you might be looking for something… something to add a little boost of colour or a bit of change in your environment.

Well, voilĂ ! mazizmuse|home can help! These handcrafted modern-chic pillows are a fantastic (and affordable!) way to change things up for the season. This silk appliqued tulip pillow is so vibrant and would bring a shot of warmth into any space!

Tulips always mean the arrival of spring for me!

So graphic and lovely!

I also really love these outdoor pillows! No April showers could keep me down if these were around…

This stripe takes me right to the beach. Summer!
