I know, I know. Navy and French Blue Pillows. Didn’t I just post about the rust colored fall pillows I added to the living room? Yes, yes, I did. We all know I have a throw pillow addiction. It’s a well documented problem.
Although the closet under the stairs has now turned into “the pillow closet” aka – a giant pillow pile/padded room that has become the favorite reading nook in the house for my kids. So you say “pillow problem.” I say “educational opportunity.” It’s all about perspective. :)
If I could live anywhere, it would be inside a Serena and Lily magazine. Or actually I don’t want to live there because my kids would destroy it, but maybe visit by myself as my very own personal happy space.
So, when they offered to send me some of their new fall navy and french blue pillows I jumped at the chance to partner with them. Although truth be told, these pillows will be carrying me all through winter as well.
I love the deep navy blues and brighter tones of the french blue against our all white everything. These pillows are so well made and the detail on them is beautiful.
And yes, they are Charlie approved.
As evidenced by the fact that he is in every stinking shot, I finally had to stick him outside so I could finish shooting this ha!
When the lake freezes over the view out the window is still beautiful, albeit a bit bleak and typically all snowy white. That’s when I really crave more color in the house which is probably opposite of how most people decorate for winter.
I love the punch of color they add to our space, and they look so pretty with the blue water in the background.
I also changed up the mantel with a more streamlined mirror. I’ve actually had that old DIY mirror above our mantel at this house and our old house for 3 years. That has to be some kind of world record for me! I’m thinking ahead to Christmas decor and realized I wanted a simpler mirror for my mantel plans this year.
I actually plan on hanging it up, but it weighs quite a bit and I need the Mr. to help me hang it. He’s been traveling all week and I know at the top of his list when he comes home is a little DIY project! ;)
I also found these pretty vases to add some more color to the mantel. Well, that and the little copper pot I used for my fall home tour was my utensil holder in the kitchen. It was driving me nuts that I couldn’t find anything in my drawers! I shop my home a lot when I want to change things up (case in point all those rust pillows are now on the basement couch) but I think that’s the last time I borrow from the kitchen.
I’m loving my little room refresh. Speaking of room refreshes, if you follow me on instagram you know the pantry got new wallpaper this week! Which funnily enough I bought at Serena and Lily as well – I guess I’m inching my way into that catalog life. I have been busy organizing and rearranging everything in there and I’m hoping to share that next week.
Also quick note – I always include a source list at the end of my blog posts listing where everything is from, but I have been getting some comments and emails lately asking where to find things.
