I'm a little obsessed with throw pillows.
I like to switch them out frequently, and even have some holiday printed ones that I display in the winter (seen here).
so when I received the new C&B catalog, I knew I had to have the Savona stripe pillow, which I mentioned in my Friday loves post last week. I recently bought the orange storage boxes from IKEA and knew I wanted to bring a little more brightness to the room in general. I already have tons of yellow decor and accessories, so I went on a hunt for some orange and purple toned pillows to tie everything together.
also? I'm kinda cheap when it comes to pillows. the Savona pillow is really a stretch for me - I don't normally spend $30 on pillows. I figured this time around, I'd get smarter and just buy pillow covers for the pillows that I already own. duh... why didn't I think of that before?
I have a few greens, a few browns, one brown polka dot, some tans, and a red pillow, but they're all just solid colors and I want to bring in some funky patterns. I knew I wanted to get one 16" x 16" cover, three 18" x 18" covers, and a 20" x 20" cover, so I went where I always go for cheap and creative solutions - Etsy. here's what I'm envisioning.
16" x 16":

18" x 18":
|grey chevron pillow cover from Etsy seller TheLaceyPlacey|
|vintage rust flower pillow cover from Etsy seller TheHomeCentric|
|yellow suzani pillow cover from Etsy seller thefarley4|
20" x 20":
|plum ocean pillow cover from Etsy seller TheHomeCentric|
I love all the colors of the above pillows, but I also love that some of them (mainly the plum and rust ones) bring a little bit more texture to the room, which is just as important as color schemes. so that's where my head is at right now.
I already purchased the yellow & grey ones for less than $30 combined, but I'm having a hard time with the rest because they are a little more expensive...
I find it kind of difficult to pull the trigger on a $24+ pillow cover (not including shipping) when I could get an entire pillow for that much, know what I mean?
please tell me I'm not the only one who
1: has an obscene pillow obsession,
and 2: agonizes over small purchases like a crazy person.
