I just got some new pillows for my sofa, and I'm very excited about them! I purchased them from the Etsy shop Kassapanola. I asked Agnes, the shop owner, to make mine 20 inches square, rather than her usual 18 inches. Lucky for me she had a little bit of the Togo Dots fabric left, as it's been discontinued.
The black and white pattern is another step in my quest to tie my white kitchen in with the large black blob (aka sofa) in my living room. The white background also helps as I continue to try to brighten up the room.
Want to take a walk through time as I examine my pillow choices over the past five years?
When we first moved in, my decorating tastes leaned toward a coastal look, with soft blues and browns. I used these crewel circle pillows from Target for a while, paired with the same silky light blue pillows you'll see throughout all my living room photos below.
They were cute when I viewed them on Etsy, but they didn't really class up the place once in my living room.
Side note: Artwork sure did change the room, huh? Next I purchased these pillows by Bobby Berk on Fab. At the time I wanted to bring in pops of red, but they were never my favorite in there either.
Apparently I never even took a photo with them on the sofa! After that I found these Palm Springs pillows by RoomService on Gilt. They help bring out the coral in the painting over the sofa, and I'm a sucker for a geometric pattern.
Next I swapped out the plain blue pillows I'd had forever with these reversible blue and white Hot Springs pillows by Xavier&Me, purchased on Fab.
They're brighter than the blue silk pillows I'd had on the sofa forever, which helped the coral geometric pillows pop. Once I added the black and white Togo Dots pillows, I brought the blue silk pillows back and moved the Hot Springs pillows to the gray club chairs across the room.
I'm sure I'll do some switching around again before too long (don't tell The Mr.), but for now I need your opinion. Do you like option 1, with the Palm Springs pillow in the corner, best? Or do you prefer option 2, without the corner pillow? I could also put a blue silk pillow in the corner, so I guess that's option 3.
