Home Decor, Presto Chango Pillows

When I redecorated the family room last fall I choose a gray and white palette.  I didn’t realize at the time how versatile this would turn out to be~

Gray and white works just as well as black and white as a background for one accent color

I have a wardrobe of pillows that I use to decorate with but my spring lime chevron pillows were a pattern overload, yikes!

Red looked great for Valentines Day

and pink for the first pop of Spring

Orange worked well  for Halloween

For Christmas I covered the numeral pillows with burlap and ribbon

and used accents of gold and silver

One or two pillows can change the whole mood of a room

So I took my spring green chevron pillows [which are burnt orange moire underneath ] and covered them yet again with gray polka dot duck

I fell in love with this painted pillow from Pottery Barn~

It looks cute with this Ikat pillow too

The mantle is decorated with my “Curious Bunny” and a wreath of cotton

Hmmmm….after Easter I think I’ll bring in some turquoise…. or maybe purple!

 

Thanks for so much for “hopping” by!

    I love the Christmas theme with the gold and silver. Very elegant! I have to admit, I’m not usually a big fan of gray, but you make it look so lovely. And I adore the rabbit pillow.

  9. Hey, Jenna! I’m going to forward this to my Mom. She recently went grey (not her hair…that’s BEEN grey! 🙂 ) throughout the top floor of her home, and I think she’ll benefit from seeing all the different ways she can spice it up. I was just watching the news here locally, and they were talking about how grey is the new brown as a neutral. You hit the nail on the head, girl!

    Have a great weekend!!!

    • thanks Laurie, I should have mentioned that it is just a faux cotton garland that I bought from Grandin Road on clearance after Christmas~ I just hung it on a nail and it formed a wreath sort of~ I loved the natural shape/look so I just left it alone~
