Pillow Change-up for a Summer Look

Sometimes, just a few small change-ups can make a space more seasonal. And since you all know that I'm a certified pillow fanatic, that's just what a pillow switch accomplished. Last week we had one of the warmest days so far, so I thought I might need to put away the furry leopard print pillows and the animal print PB throw. Instantly lighter and more "summery".




These next few pics were taken at Christmas, 
and I think that's the last time I even shared photos of the Living Room.




This was before we had much up on the wall.
We still don't have a lot, but there was even less at Christmas.


This is why I love a neutral space,
it's so much easier to change things up.



I made these very simple floral pillows for both sofa's
 a few years ago as an option at the old house.




This one is a hand lettered calligraphy pillow from The Feathered Nest.



These are from Restoration Hardware a few years ago.






My sis made this monogrammed pillow for me for Christmas
a while back with her Silhouette Machine.


Funny, I hadn't even thought about these pillows until I was rummaging
around in my quilt and pillow storage.
 Having things visible makes it so much easier to see what might work.



If I had limitless funds,
 I'd buy these same rugs in the mushroom color too,
 for a lighter Summer look.




A large sisal rug would be an option, but with chewing kitties,
I think I'll stick with the ones I have.

Hope you all had a great weekend,
We worked in the garage and storage room downstairs,
still unpacking wayward boxes and organizing.

Around the Bend and Into the Past...


I know most of us believe in the term "Serendipity".


ser·en·dip·i·ty
ˌserənˈdipədē/
noun
  1. the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
    "a fortunate stroke of serendipity"
    synonyms:(happy) chance, (happy) accident, fluke
    luck, good luck, good fortune,fortuityprovidence
    happy coincidence
    "the consequence of serendipity is sometimes a brilliant discovery"


This little occurrence by chance wasn't by chance at all,
and it started for me about 23 years ago.
