New Pillows

A. Sorry for the Instagram and Blogger overload lately, I've been trying to figure something out and kept accidentally posting!!

B. I finally have all the accent pillows for my sofa! I had an Ikea Klippan sofa that I inherited years ago from an old roommate. The slipcover was in rough shape, but the sofa itself was fine, so I figured I kinda like modern lines, why not keep using it? Ikea had a great turquoise slipcover (well, it had to be great because my other options were bright school bus yellow, navy which I already had, or huge red and white Minnie Mouse polka dots) so I was on a mission to find pillows that would look good with it.

Well, I got super, super lucky and first won a giveaway from W. 26th Bliss for a fabulous coral chevron pillow, then just a few days later, I won a giveaway on Cornflake Dreams for a credit to Fiscally Chic's Etsy shop. I picked out two pillows in this bright Marimeko fabric and then bought two more just because I loved the print so much! The colors are stunning and all the pillows and the sofa came together so beautifully.

Also, you can see just a little of the coffee table I bought off craigslist. I was looking for a big gold and glass coffee table so you can imagine my excitement when I found a 42" square brass and glass coffee table with Greek key detailing... for $40. Unbelievable. I'm sure I'll have this for years. 


  1. I'm so glad you love your new Marimekko pillow covers! If you don't mind, I'd love to share this post on my FB page.

    Have a great day!

    1. Definitely feel free to share it!! Thanks again for the beautiful covers!

  2. LOVE IT! seriously! I'm obsessed. I can't believe that coffee table was only $40.
