Bedding store Blue Springs Home might feel overwhelming at first glance, with pillows made from vintage fabrics stacked floor to ceiling. But point to any one of them and owner Susan Ellison will tell you its age and the country it came from. “We do that with a lot of our fabrics that are old and don’t have a life in a stack, but when you make pillows out of them, they just come alive again,” Ellison says. “And they should be reinvented because they’re so fabulous.” Customers can shop her collection or hire her for interior design—what she refers to as “bedroom therapy.”
