rustic living room

I think it’s safe to say I have a real thing for throw pillows in the living room.

(She says with a sheepish grin.)

It started innocently enough – a pillow here, a pillow there.

Until I had a whole collection of throw pillows in the living room.

But when I find really awesome throw pillows it’s just so darn hard to say no.

And truthfully, I’m a bit of a particular pillow addict.

I only buy feather inserts. (I only buy the $7 Ikea versions.)

And I don’t normally spend much more than $20 for a cover.

Sometimes I even make my own.

Come to think of it I believe it’s a good thing, my throw pillow addiction.

How else would throw pillow artists make a living?

  1. I love it! I was hoping you knew where you got the loveseats, because I have one that is the same design. I have been trying to figure it out. I have the loveseat, a large armchair, and a small armchair, and I don’t have room for a full sofa. The loveseat was free to me from a friend whose inlaws were getting rid of nice quality furniture to replace it with a new style. I was definitely blessed! Mine was dingy, but I covered it with a nice cream slipcover. Free is a good thing.

    I like your style. It is creative and cute! The pillows you chose hit just the right note together.

    1. Unfortunately the loveseats were bought second-hand and I can’t remember where they were from originally. Thanks so much for the compliments!
