Pillow Talk

I feel as though the major battle between husband and wife when it comes to home décor is agreeing on an appropriate number of pillows for each piece of furniture. I can’t get enough of them. Chris (and 99% of husbands around the world) find toss pillows useless.

I find that though disturbing.

Here is how I jazzed up my amazing couch from La-Z-Boy with some cute accessories.

Pillows from left to right:

Aqua Blue Pillow– Chris and I actually made this pillow! The fabric is pre-cut from Michael’s. Pillows are easy to make! If you find fabric you love but are not sure what to do with it just ask for a yard (it is enough to make one big pillow or two smaller pillows like the one in this photo) and sew it up almost until it is closed. Stuff with plush stuffing (also at Michael’s) and sew up.

His & Hers Pillow– I picked this pillow up at T.J. Maxx about six months before we got married. It used to have a home on our bed but we recently got a new duvet and pillows that matched, so I found a new place for it! I have seen this pillow and the “Mr. & Mrs.” version floating around at Home Goods. You may still be able to find it! Here is a similar burlap style pillow from Etsy!

Orange Pom Pom Pillow– Recently picked this one up at Bed & Bath! Now is a great time to shop for throw pillows there because they have many different collections for college students. This pillow was so unique and I though it would be a great addition to the one behind it (which I also picked up at Bed & Bath). Don’t forget to bring your 20% off coupon!

Boho Print Pillow: I LOVE the print on this pillow! I wanted a boho look for my living room couch and I though that mixing and matching prints would be perfect. I stuck with an orange/red color pallet for this side of the couch. This pillow was a little expensive ($49.99) but I think it is so versatile that you can match it with many different colors or prints.

Square Printed Pillow: I just picked this one up today at the Long Beach craft fair. It is from Surf Chic Designs– check them out online! I loved all their pillows but this one was the most perfect for my couch.

I mixed and matched patterns, colors and sizes to create a fun splash of color in my mainly neutral living room. The coffee table (which is actually a wooden wine trunk) is from Pier1 as is the tray. Here are a few of my picks for other great throw pillows!
