Not sure if it is the lack of sleep caused by hubby’s new alarm clock, the boy’s new-found early wake-up time, or my daughters mopey-ness is rubbing off on me, or the fact that I just can’t seem to find the ‘right’ decorative pillow for my bed is causing me to feel down – whatever it is, is driving me bonkers. Grey, if you will. Not blue, because that is to clichéic, and the color grey is the cause of my new pillow obsession that is threatening my marriage, and challenging my decorating skills. Okay, not really, but Hubby really doesn’t understand my need for decorative pillows and the sheer happiness that they bring me (usually). Surely, he would have a much better reason to leave me then that. Ahem.
Recently, I moved the rug that used to be in my bedroom, to the entryway, which hubby agreed was a good move. However, it left a void in the bedroom. So, of course, I had to buy a new rug…a Target special, nonetheless. Here it is, in the space…
The new rug has created a need for new pillows to tie the look together. I realize my bedroom is on the verge of pattern overload, but if I have learned nothing from Candice Olson and HGTV, it is that mixing different textiles, patterns and prints, creates a luxurious feel. Who doesn’t want that?
It is only fair to show you the whole space so you can get the overall look and feel I am going for
In a perfect world, I would love to tie in the coral color from the bench, and the grey color from the rug. So far, this has proven to be impossible.
I am sure there is one out there but it probably costs a pretty penny. Remember, I am not Oprah rich, so I refuse to spend more than $15 per pillow. It is the thrifter in me.
