Psychedelic Seaside

So when I first got my grubby mitts on Thomas Knauers' new line, Flock (hitting stores this month), I thought it was all about psychedelic London in the swinging sixties.  And so for the front of my Flock pillows, I fussy cut and fused my favourite Flock motifs for a modern, clean psychedelic look.


But then my twin daughters intervened and explained that I had it all wrong.  The theme of these fabrics was a flock of seagulls at the seaside at sunset and could I please incorporate that into the pillows.  And so, duly chastised, I did as I was told.  And we are now debating which side of the pillows we prefer.  Twin one prefers the "fronts" (photo above) and twin two prefers the "backs" (photo below) and so they are now doing that annoying thing where one turns her favourite side to the front and then the other turns her favourite side to the front and so on and so forth.   But which twin is right?  Which side do you prefer?

  1. I'm agreeing with twin #2 the backs. But I do like the fronts too. Oh well, you can flip them constantly and enjoy both.

  2. Keep the peace and have one of each! I am obviously a 60's girl - love the psychedelics!

  3. lordy that's like asking if you prefer Starsky or Hutch, Bodie or Doyle, tea or coffee. Personally, they are both amazing.

  4. I'd show the fronts in my livingroom and then I'd put them in my campervan and show the backs when out and about each weekend!

  5. All sides are amazing but I'm a seaside dog so I'm going with the back! That way I can chase the seagulls...

  6. I prefer the back, the fronts remind me too much of my mis-spent youth in the swinging sixties!

  11. Honestly, that's like choosing which twin you love the most. Both sides are lovely and I didn't realize one side was the back until I read your blog. Before you asked the question, I thought they would look nice on twin beds with a different side facing front on each.

  12. If there is one thing I've learned from having twins is that neither of them is ever right (or wrong) over the other. I like both sides of the cushions, you could always have one with the front facing and one with the back facing!

  13. In my experience, twins are never right! I'd give up and leave them to it x

  15. I love the fronts (although it makes my eyes go a little funny!). The backs are fun too though

  16. Think you might have to have lived thro the 60s to appreciate the fronts fully - the backs are very calming in contrast.

  17. Well, as a 60's born wild child, confused, and in love with both sides :)

  18. I'm with Nicky - one each way!
    (although if they were in my house we'd be looking at the fronts!!)

  19. I can't make up my mind I like both sides. You could always make one with the 2 backs and one with the 2 fronts and make both twins happy.

  20. I love both the front and the back

  25. I love them both. I think they are perfect they way they are then you can show whichever side suits you that day!

  26. I like the back side with the fabric looking like birds flying.

  27. I am glad that I am not the only one who is told what to do by my children :-)

    I like the front. However the back is good too.

  29. I prefer twin 2's choice of the back! Love both sides though!

  30. I really love the back. But I would just flip them back and forth, like the front on the even days, and back on the odd days. Because both sides rock!
