Pillow Drama

Feb 9, 2011

Ok, faithful readers, I need your help deciding which pillow combination to go with on my sofa in the den. I have desperately been wanting to add some pink accents in my house. Well, I found some pink pillows at Tuesday Mornings of all places. I mean that place is seriously creepy and I did feel like I needed to take a shower after I left there, but they did have some decent rugs and pillows. I think this pink might be too bright in my den. I was looking for more of a peony/honeysuckle pink but for the price ($19.99) I thought I had to try these out (and they are returnable). I have taken pictures of the 4 different combos of pillows for my den. Take a look and vote for your favorite or please give me a suggestion for a different pillow to add to the mix! Thanks girls! xoxo





Thoughts? After looking at these pictures I am not sure I love the pink. Curious what ya’ll think.

    I really like the chocolate and the monogram but if you wanted to lighten up the room maybe try a third pillow or lumbar pillow with the green (to tie in with the apples) and a lighter pink?

  2. tickled. says:

    Oh! I personally LOVE the pink with leopard … But I'm all about bright colors! šŸ™‚


  3. Love the pink – definitely gives the space a punch!! Also love the monogram pillows too! Lots of good options šŸ™‚

  4. Alicia xoxxo says:

    I like the pink! It is fun and bright! I love bright colors! I vote go for it!

  5. Pink and leopard are two of my absolute favorite things, so my first instinct is that one. But I see what you're saying about the pink not being quite right, so I think the 4th option is a great alternative!

    PS thanks so much for your sweet comment, it made my day!

  6. Kathy Robey says:

    I love all things green, pink, leopard & monogrammed. So many great options. I think a pop of color is always ok šŸ˜‰

  7. Kerr says:

    I like the green pillows with the leopard. But all of them are cute!

  8. Jill says:

    The leopard and the hot pink!!!

  9. kindrathings says:

    Great options! My vote is for the chocolate geometric & monogram:-)

  10. Hmmm…that is a toughie! I'm always going to go for bright…I totally love the pink! I think you may be right, though, about it needing to perhaps be a bit more toned down…but hey, I think I would still rock it! (c:

  11. im as traditional as they come, and i still looove the pink. such a bold punch of color. a close runner up is the monogram and the chocolate geometric – good gracious, i love a monogram! maybe you could use the pink for spring/summer, then rotate to a more toned down combo for fall/winter. xx.

  12. GiGi says:

    i love the leopard/pink combo, as well as the leopard monogrammed combo….if you aren't sure about the pink pillows, maybe you could find a lacquered pink tray for the coffee table?

  13. Lisa Fergus says:

    I like the first 2, but honestly the hot pink is my favorite! Great finds!!!


  14. Nicole says:

    I love the monogram pillows – but I'm a sucker for anything monogrammed – and I just love the look of them! My vote is for the monogram/brown geometric combo, but to add a punch of pink (which I also love) I'm with GiGi above – a lacquered pink tray would be P.E.R.F.E.C.T under your glass vase w/ the apples!!

  15. Christina says:

    pink!!! combo 1. it really makes it pop.

  16. lizziefitz says:

    i am loving #3 and #4. Does that mean I am not much of a risk taker?

  17. option #5 — 2 leopard, 2 pink and 1 monogram

  18. UPTOWN WIFE says:

    Thanks for visiting my blog. My pick would definitely be the monogram pillows. It looks very elegant and classic.

  19. UPTOWN WIFE says:

    oh and with the brown geometric pillows… forgot that part šŸ™‚

  20. TeresaG says:

    They all look great but I love the pink in the mix and of course the monogram is great for a Den (or any room)!

  21. Melanie says:

    I love the pink, it's a fun pop of color to the room.

  22. Natalie says:

    I love the leopard and pink, maybe throw a monogrammed in there too?

  23. I'm a fan of the pink sista. Pink and leopard it is. Then maybe save the geometric and monogram for the fall?

  24. Laura says:

    I really like the pink. I'd say pink and leopard or leopard and monogram!

  25. Michaela says:

    I agree with Cassie! More pillows the better, right?! I love the leopard though (: It says that you're daring and I like that!

  26. Megan says:

    I don't think you can go wrong here, I love the leopard. I think paired with the green is my favorite combo!

  27. Nikosmommy says:

    I'm liking the choco brown and monogram! Personally I'd go with a solid choco brown with a satin finish AND the leopard print pillows too. (texture and pattern together!)

  28. TamStyles says:

    something in me likes the pink..a punch of color…the monogram pillows are nice as well…and great blog. my first visit here.

  29. Love the pink! Looks great with your green apples, too.

  30. Cassie hit the nail on the head! That's exactly what I was going to suggest. I love the pink/leopard but you could "sophisticate" it up a bit with one monogrammed pillow. Ohh yeah. That will be cute! Let us know when you try taht combo!

  31. I personally love the monogram and leopard pillow combo! A nice touch of both classic and fun!

    Love your blog- New follower!
