I love throw pillows. They warm up a room and you can buy them on the cheap. I also love throw blankets for that very same reason, but that’s a topic for another time. Lately, I have been obsessed with buying pillows. I am mildly embarrassed (to put it lightly) at exactly how many (5? 25? nobody will ever know) have come in and out of my house over the last few months.
Finally, I feel I have found the perfect mix of shapes, sizes and colors. This latest purchase really rounded out my living room couch nicely. Sadly, my husband is not amused nor will he ever understand my appreciation for all things home decor. In fact, when he returned from his latest work trip, he noticed said pillow. The conversation went something like this…
Husband: WHAT…is THIS?!?
Husband: Exactly how many more pillows are going to be coming into this house?
Me: None, I swear this is the last one (and I meant it). The Feng Shui was off and I felt this really tied everything together. [Side note: I’m not entirely sure what Feng Shui means and know for damn sure he doesn’t either. At this particular point in the conversation I needed to at least sound like I knew what I was talking about.]
Husband: No more pillows!
Me: But this one spoke to me!
Husband: Yeah, and you know what it said? “HAHA! Gotcha now bitch!”
The point is, never underestimate the value of a good throw pillow – and certainly don’t let your husband tell you any different. They add dimension, color, pattern and texture to any space. They can also be purchased on the cheap. The items below were purchased at: Target, TJ Maxx, Home Goods and Ashley Furniture online. Just more proof that you CAN decorate on a dime.
