I made some headway last weekend sprucing up the apartment – hanging our gorgeous new piece of art, and revamping my sunburst mirror – however, this week, everything has fallen apart. I have been so busy with work, and travel, and the HUNGER GAMES (we can get to that later) that everything is a mess. Clothes are all over the place, hamper overflowing, dishes in the sink, and dead flowers galore. One step forward, two steps back.
I am determined to clean everything from top to bottom, and then I am moving forward with some more small details. I have a few small projects in the works (one involving sea fans that I am rather excited for) but I am also looking into ordering some new pillow covers off Etsy.
Remember the living room inspiration?
Well I am moving forward on the pillows now. As it stands, we are working with a total mishmash of whatever came with me from my last apartment. This leaves us with several sad pillows that are well used (little frays here and there) and there is zero continuity between why they are all together. I want to stick in the same color palate as I originally designed – browns, aqua, blue, tan, grey, and some yellow
That said, I also still find myself to fabrics with pops of color. Would it end up being to matchy matchy without some other color variations? Will this end up looking like a sore thumb or afterthought? That is the problem with Etsy – because most of these shops are a single person running a side business, there are no returns no a lot of it… what do you think? Are these too much? Should I stick with the original plan?
So many options, so little time!
