I know what you're thinking - what?!
When I got the actual [very large] bolster filler pillow from eBay, it didn't look so great with the bright yellow on that little couch... so I decided to go back to the basics. Neutral it is!
(Don't worry, it's not too tragic. I'm thinking of using the bright fabric and bright painting in our dark gray bedroom.)
Here is my reasoning: Instead of fighting the neutral theme that's already in the room, I'm just going to go with it. After all, neutrals are my favorite, and I especially realized that after looking at my inspiration pics over and over again (Literally, all the rooms are neutral. What can I say, I'm a boring chick).
And my reasoning part two: Someday we want to purchase our own place. Therefore, I want to only buy pieces that I know I can use in our future homes, something classic and timeless.
Here is the rug that made my change my mind:
It's simple, casual yet preppy - and see the color? I anticipate it blending nicely with my newly painted console.
I did some quick little mock ups of how the rug can work for us now, and in the future.
- I hope to find a piece of artwork that is similar to my french girl above at the Rose Bowl flea market this weekend. I'd like something large and neutral to place on the console.
- I love this neutral fabric with a fabulous pattern.
I've been dreaming up this future room for a long time. I can't wait until I can make something like this happen. Clean, simple, warm and elegantly casual. My favorite type of design.
