I have reached a peak in my pillow obsession. My 7-year-old commented on it. Actually, he asked me why I buy so many. I wish I had an answer for his sweet face but, all I could come up with was, “I have a sickness, sweetie.” He seemed to understand. Speaking of pillows, Taylor tried to “let me know” this weekend that I am to never buy pillow inserts with “stupid feathers in them again!!!” Oh, my dear innocent husband. It ain’t happening. Yes, love, you will have to endure feathers poking you until there is a cotton insert that doesn’t collapse under everyday use. He told me it feels like leaning back on a hen. A little dramatic. It was one of those occasions that I tried unsuccessfully to make him understand that comfort comes second to aesthetics. BUT, if any of you have recommendations for a better alternative I am willing to listen 🙂
Anyhoo I have been on a real winning streak lately with pillows. My latest scores are seriously moving me into a “finished” stage with my couch. I know, I know no one believes me but, I really do feel like I am so much closer to the look I love with this combo. As I said on Instagram, I have heard that you should decorate your house the way you dress and you will be happy. I live in black, denim, and on my favorite days, stripes, so I think I may just love this look for a long time!!
Also, on another note, I loved this post from Emily Henderson this week. I love her style and personality and this post was a refreshing reminder that even the professionals deal with the same mundane choices as the rest of us. They even have to make decisions based around function and budget and the answers don’t always come easily. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by what I should pick, should like, or should have based solely on what I decipher from the world of blogging, pinning, and instagramming, which is no where near reality most of the time. Glad to know one of my idols has a real life too!
+ Don’t forget to come back tomorrow when I will be sharing my last ORC update before the final reveal!
