Punchy Pillows

Happy happy day!  I'm not sure about you, but I have found 2013 to be a great year so far.  I have a little living room update to share today.

The color scheme in my living room and dining room is evolving nicely.  I am following the inspiration board I blogged about last year.  You all know that I usually gravitate toward white, cream, ivory.  But my home was built in the 1980s and has a more modern vibe than cottage.  I cannot really get away with a cottage style in this place.  So while I am using all shades of white, I also brought in some colors that I love: pink, coral, yellow, seaglass green/blue and turquoise.  All of these colors are in the inspiration board, which I'll repost to refresh your memory.

Here were my couches and pillows until just recently.  I ordered the fabric in the pillows on the left and right had someone on Etsy make pillow covers for me.  I love them.   And the center pillow is the now-ubiquitous Dwell pillow from Target.

The loveseat had a large coral print pillow and two navy and white pillows.

While I love the print on the navy and white guys, there is something about them that just does not work.  They are too heavy for the space, I think.  So I put them aside (they are actually outdoor pillows and I got them on clearance at Target a few years ago for maybe $3 each ... I think I'll use them outside in the Spring!) and decided to bring in more pink and seaglass.  I got some pink and white pillow covers at Milk and Cookies Canada on Etsy. I like that they are mostly white, which I think keeps the space nice and light.  I bought the seaglass green pillow covers at the Pottery Barn Outlet on our last journey there.  

And here they are in the room!

Ahhhh ... pillows.  They make such a difference!  I'd like to bring in a couple more - definitely more yellow and maybe one more.  What do you think?  What would you do?

See you swoon,
