Finessing the Details

I am really enjoying the soft aqua in my LR/DR for a change, and the touch of burnt orange/rust for fall is fun, but  there are always a few things that need to be tweaked.

I always look at GW for down filled pillows.  They usually have some for as little as $2 to $3.  So perfect to take off their pillow cover and use your own.  I was looking for a jelly roll form and saw this for $2, so in my basket it jumped.





 Then when I got it home, it looks perfect with the fabrics I am already using, so I don't even need to recover it. There is the slightest undertone of a soft green in the fabric.   How fabulous is that.


Don't you just love it when you find something and it unexpectedly turns out to be just perfect.


Hope you have a super Sunday.  See you Monday for Table Top Tuesday.

  1. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting! It's great to see a "new face!" (My new accent colors in my living room are aqua and green...love the freshness of it!)

  3. That is the perfect touch. I really like the soft shades of burnt orange that you're using. Sometimes they can be a bit much, but yours look lovely.

  6. How lucky were you. I have looked at GW for PILLOWS but never thought of looking for what lies beneath! I will form now on -- I only use down -- it is so much nicer!

  8. Marty,
    WoW!!! What luck, dear friend! That new pillow is "perfect", indeed in your living room color palette! I adore the softness of the hues!!! I've been pillow and throw hunting. Found some fabulous pillows...but...when I went to order them...no longer available. Guess I'll be looking elsewhere!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  9. Beautiful pillow. I have one that is very similar, in guess what color? aqua. It came with a comforter set from Belk.

    Have a great week!

  10. Marty, I am always on the lookout for down filled pillows! Great find! I just found a place here in Murfreesboro last week that has down pillow inserts for $7. That is the price for the 16 x 16. They have several sizes that are all reasonably priced. I sure would like to find one for $2! At least I now have a good source for when I can't find a great pillow at thrift! Life to the full, Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

  11. The pillow works out perfectly! I love the cream colors in your living room. The huge mirror is such an elegant focal point too.

    I cannot get over how lively you are Marty. Your energy comes right through in every one of your posts.
