Moroccan Shag Pillows


The week before we went on vacation, I had stumbled upon a delightful surprise. These Nate Berkus Moroccan Shag Pillows. They are from Target. They are sold out online, however, the website was saying they were sold out when I looked them up right after I purchased them, too. This leads me to believe that some stores might still have them.


I had been wanting these pillows for months. But the day I decided to get them in the middle of May, they were gone. Two weeks later, I found them again. Someone had returned them. I was not going to let them be sold out from under me again.


I love the black and white pattern in the room that is full of color. It is a nice contrast. And the shag effect on them makes them feel soft. I had to replace the pillows that used to be on the chairs. They had become too worn. And the Rabbit Pillows I purchased a few months ago, have been a little dog-handled. I need to fix the pompoms or cut them off completely.

I will say the insert in this pillow is not the best. The pillow is stiff because of that, but for $25, that is to be expected. The pillow does not have a zipper so it is not possible (without some work) to change its insert.


Do you have a thing for pillows? I cannot get enough.

  1. So cute! Oh, I just love Target. And I adore your house! It seems like we have a TON of pillows too. Thank you for your kind words yesterday – it helps so much to know I am not alone when it comes to getting frustrated or feeling doubt. I hope you’ve recovered from your bad day too. My massage was absolutely wonderful! I would definitely go back to that lady, and hope to do so again during this pregnancy.

    • Thank you Heather. I appreciate that. I try to make it fun. I have recovered. It was a trying couple of days being a parent. I am surprised I have hair left. Thankfully, it looks like it has worked out. I am so happy you had a good massage! I hope you get to go again during the pregnancy, too. I remember getting a massage while I was pregnant and it just was so much better. You must do it!

      I hope you have a happy week!

      So excited about your baby boy! : )


  2. Your house is amazing. I love it, especially your library ladder! We only have a few couch pillows from TJ Maxx and Urban Outfitters and they are used more for throwing/pillow fights and fort building than anything else…so I have not invested in any more 🙂 The black and white one is awesome. I am glad that you found it again!

    • Thank you Alicia. : ). I agree with little ones not investing in them. My dog was actually the one who destroyed my last two. My husband’s favorite thing to say is, “this is why we can’t have nice things.” : ). I have always disagreed with that. I love Urban Outfitters home stuff!

      Have a great week!


    • Thank you Sarah! Yes, pillows are so expensive. I have made my own, but that can be expensive, too. I have a really cool idea for a new pillow I want to make soon, but that probably will not come into fruition until August.

      Have a beautiful week!


  3. I have a thing for pillows. Some (crazy people who don’t understand) might say it’s an addiction. In fact, when I find an especially good throw pillow, I’ll sometimes buy an extra as “back up.” Because, uh, back up throw pillows are really a thing. It’s good to be prepared for emergencies, right? Including pillow emergencies?… And, uh, pillow emergencies are also really a thing.

    Crate and Barrel has a new super colorful otomi pillow, but it’s too pricey for me right now (sigh.) So I’m stalking it (pillow stalking is also really a thing.)

    • Oh my gosh. Soul sister! Yes, pillow stalking is definitely a thing! I do it, too! And I have bought backup pillows, too! Yes, there are definitely such things as pillow emergencies! Definitely! I love moving pillows around the house. That Crate and Barrel pillow is so pretty. I hope you are able to score it on a sale!

      Have a wonderful week!


  4. i am always confused by how to decorate with pillows. The cats usually claim them anyway. I would like for you to come over and decorate my apartment because your house looks so inviting!! Gosh I love the colors and the bookshelf and ladder!

    • I would love to come help you! I have done that for friends before. I love picking stuff out. I get it with the cats. My dogs do that, too. Especially Murphy. But he is a cat-dog. Thank you for your sweet words. I think my house can be too much for a lot of people, so I appreciate it! : )

      Have a gorgeous week!


  5. I love the pattern on those pillows. I also have a lot of throw pillows, including a raccoon playing a washtub bass and a squirrel riding a bike. My husband hates throw pillows.

    I think I’ve said it before but I love your bookshelves.

    • Your pillows sound so cool! I love that! It sounds whimsical and fun. I love that you have fun with your house. I think that is the most important thing.

      Thank you for the compliment. We are really glad we built them but we all ready need more!

      Sweet dreams!
