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.
