Thanks to an after-Christmas sale, and some
dumb color luck, the Living Room sofa now has pillows that coordinate with the rest of the room!
Oops! You can’t see them too well with the stems on the coffee table. So as Mr. Sugarplum would so eloquently say, “Can we get this tree off the table?!”
Much better. As luck would have it, I was browsing the sales at West Elm when I spied these ikat pillows….for $14 each! (For some reason they aren’t on sale online.) Because they were final sale though, ‘Rita Return’ (aka, me) wouldn’t be able to pull her usual tricks…but I took a chance the colors would work anyway.
The down inserts are Ikea, and from unused pillows I already own. The zebra is an oldie from Pier 1 that used to live on my bed. And the lumbar was wrestled from the sweaty clutches of a maniac shopper at the Missoni for Target sale. *Part of that statement may be embellished.* Oh, and the striped throw is an Ikea goodie, as well.
Turns out Rita had nothing to worry about. The pillow colors perfectly coordinate with the room, and pull together the sofa, green wingback and peacock armoire.
I think maybe I need one more pillow (in place of the zebra) that includes the pink from the bookcases and rug. I do have leftover fabric from the bookcase project…perhaps with a dark blue piping? And even though this Living Room Makeover has been derailed, I haven’t forgotten about the little nook on the left.
I just don’t know what to do with it yet. I’d love to hear your opinions on the new pillows…adding another pink pillow…and ideas on the back nook. That’s a lot of homework for this freaky Friday!
