furbish pillows make me happy.

apparently, in home design, i love nothing more than a good ol' decorative pillow. i've decided they're the shoes of the decorating world...you change up an outfit with shoes, you change up the look of a room with the switch of pillows. anyway, i had said over at the "whats up whimsy" blog (on her blogger holiday wishlist series) that i would really like for santa to bring me this black and white fleckled pillow, and he did! thanks, dad, i mean santa ;)

here it is hanging out in my bedroom...

  3. You're room is so cozy - I love it! I totally agree with you on pillows being shoes in the decorative world - I have somewhat of a fetish ;)

  4. I love it! Shoes for the room is a great way to put it. Where did you get your wood blinds? I want some for our master but I felt like the ones at Lowe's looked too fakey, or maybe I'm just being too critical?!

  6. Adore that pillow and agree completely! Changing out pillows and moving art can instantly change the look of a room!

  8. thanks, everyone :)

    brandi - my blinds are from bed, bath, and beyond....they were actually on clearance for only 9.99 a few months ago!! i have some from lowes downstairs as well...when you get them up with curtains, i dont think they look as 'cheap' as they do in the store! :)

  9. Pretty!! I tell my husband that pillows are the earring of the room - they make the outfit.. but perhaps shoes is a better analogy.. either way, that pillow is fab in your room!
