People often ask why I like to decorate with white, and the answer is simple. Besides the fact that I love the color white and feel it always looks fresh and clean … you can easily change up the look and feel of a white room from season to season by adding beautiful color and pattern with pillows and textiles. I recently added a touch of color in the family room. I was actually shopping for something specific for the kitchen and wandered into the home decor section, and yada yada yada … I now have new spring pillows in the family room!
Or I find a bunch of pillows I like but they don’t go together. So when I found a grouping at Home Goods that were the right color, the right patterns, and went together beautifully … well, it was hard to resist.
But I kept thinking about how cute those pillows would look in my family room.
And so I went back a few days later because this colorful bird pillow kept tugging at my heart strings. They were bundled in a set of 2 for around $25. A good price when you consider some pillows cost over $50 apiece.
I also grabbed the rectangular, solid light blue pillow on the left. It has a soft, white whale on the opposite side that’s not showing. This summer, I’ll change out a few of the pillows for a nautical look and that’s when I’ll show the whale side.
The rest of the pillows I already had and added them to the mix. It may sound silly, but I’m really happy with my pillow selection. Like I said, I have some sort of decorating block when it comes to pillows. Part of why I struggle is because I’m not willing to spend $50 or more for a single pillow. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it … I just can’t bring myself to do it. It’s probably all those years of frugality when I was a single mom that give me pause.
It was worth taking a trip back to the store to get them!
