Today I wanted to share my favorite new home accessory with you all. It's a small addition to our living room that has made an enormous difference. You know, in the way only the best of accessories can liven up a space difference?
Here's the living room last week.
And here it is this week. Do you notice the difference? (Besides my needing overhead lights to make the space bright enough to photograph? Sigh. Summer I already miss you.)
That's right. We have a new pillow!
Now, I know. Some of you are thinking: seriously Jenn? But friends, this is exciting stuff. The last time I added a new pillow to the living room was THREE years ago. For a person who loves pillows, and has the ability to make her own, that's just sad.
This lovely pillow was made by my friend Jane, of the Janery and The Borrowed Abode fame*. Isn't the fabric gorgeous? She posted a sneak peak when she first bought the fabric a few months ago and I knew I needed it in my house. Blue + yellow = perfect for my living room. I immediately emailed and told her I had to have one when she made them.
You guys need to go check out her shop, if you haven't already. These pillow are perfection. I am so impressed by the quality. The fabric is not only gorgeous, but the perfect pillow weight, and what I'm showing you in this picture is the nearly invisible zipper. My Pottery Barn zippers aren't even invisible! It's truly gorgeously made.
I think my favorite part (which is NOT my incredibly wrinkled couch - ew), and what drew me to this fabric, is the navy blue. I've been thinking that adding touches of darker colors to the room might add some depth. So, now I'm inspired to make some changes, maybe add some more deeper, richer color to the room. And it will not be three years before I switch out my pillows again. Next to my new gem, the current pillows feel a little stale. I'll keep you updated :).
What small updates have you made lately that made a room feel new? Or, that inspired you to take a bigger leap?
*I was not compensated for this post. I just like Jane, and I wanted to support her lovely shop the Janery. Make sure you go check it out!
