Happy Friday! I feel like I’m always shuffling throw pillows around in search of that perfect mix and color combination. Are you with me? And just when I think I’m there, I see something online or in a magazine that makes me go ga ga, and the shuffle begins again. This shabby quirky cottage is always looking for a little spruce up of sorts. So here’s what the living room has going on after my latest run around the house mad woman pillow swap. Ahem…
I went with whites, blues, floral, and ruffles for a soft shabby chic look that will easily transition into the holidays, if this look sticks around that long. Of course, I’m not big on making long term commitments as you probably guessed by now. Wink. The floor pillows are more of a Robin’s egg blue compared to the brighter blue sofa pillows, but I ‘m diggin’ the mix of blues in here.I thought this bouquet looked fall-ish and since the fall decorating is at a minimum this year, I went with these autumn inspired flowers to compliment all the blue and white. The tarnished silver pitcher works well this time of year too.And do you see that teensie tiny little plant? Well, that’s Mr. Manly’s project. He’s trying to bring her back to life after he accidentally brought her to the brink of death. I wonder how many times he’s watered her since he re-potted her. I wonder if I should water her now. She’s a Peace Lily after all.
Have a lovely weekend!
PS Paisley insisted on not budging for these pictures
PPS If only she was better at posing! lol
PPPS It turns out that we both watered it.
Your pillows are all so pretty. I change mine up frequently too. It’s so easy and fun!
As always, it all looks cozy and lovely! I hope Mr. Manly can nurse that peace lily back to life!
Oh yes, I can definitely relate to the pillow shuffle! I’ve had mine in the same spot since we moved, it seems to be working. I have enough for my head and to also prop my feet up if I take a nap:) Yours look so lovely and cozy! I hope your hubby’s plant is still hanging in there. I’m terrible with plants of any sort, they die just by being looked at by me. The ones on our patio have done well but only due to the FL summer rain, now that rainy season’s over I’m sure they’ll all keel over on me:(
I’ve been in a sea of paint over here! Eveeeerything was painted peach, peach doors, peach walls…ugh! I had to paint 3 doors upstairs, only one left to go then painted the last of the peach walls in the kitchen yesterday. Today I’m tackling the living room, I chose a Behr paint called “Silver Polish”…I can’t wait! Going to finish my coffee, hop in the shower then get to work:)
Have a wonderful rest of the week Sally, see you on IG I’m sure!
I never tire of your blue and whites no matter what the arrangement…always so pretty. Beautiful photography!
