A call for color advice

This tiny pillow has been made as part of a "tote bag exchange" for a miniature workshop. The workshop is a roombox in 1" scale done in "Shabby Chic" decor. I'm so not shabby chic, but I wanted to do something new and different for a change.

My question to my fellow miniaturists, to decorators with more talent than me for this sort of thing, and to fiber artists who have an eye for color: Should I embroider any contrasting accents onto the pillow? Or should I just leave it alone? I could always add color to mine after I get the scheme of the room done, but then my friends would either have to go without or do it themselves.

Thanks for any help you can give. I have five more of these to make tonight. The workshop is this weekend, so I have plenty of time to add color after I get them sewn.

Leave it as it is, but maybe make the suggestion that accents could be added to have it match the decor. Since you don't know where they will be used, it is hard to guess what color to make the accents.

Have fun at the workshop! I am envious.

I will be posting pictures of the finished project sometime this weekend.

Thanks for the help. FH agreed with you, btw. He's not into minis, but he comes up with great suggestions.

I would leave it alone. Let the ivory be the star.

I love it the way it is. Keep us posted on the weekend workshop!
