Finally




I finally found some throw pillows for my funny red couch. Let me tell you it was not easy to find something that would match, at least in the stores around here. I discovered these two yesterday at Home Goods. I wish they had more but only the two were there.

They match perfectly. Now I want to find some cute accent pillows.
Now to replace that ugly old green throw rug. I really doesn't go in here any longer but I am having trouble finding something with the right shade of red in it. We have dogs and kids so it can't be too light in color. Any suggestions?

Looks great Elaine -- love the reds -- toiles and tickings are some of my favorites. If the rug is in good shape, have you considered dying it? Might be the way to go :)

Blessings!

Oh Elaine, I am smitten! It looks fantastic! I wish I had access to that store. My suggestion for a rug, from a person with pets, is to shop for an indoor/outdoor rug. I have been quite pleased with those from Ballards catalog/online shopping. I never use indoor (only) rugs indoors. With the others, you can take them down and just hose them off.

Very French looking. I love it! I was having trouble finding a rug to match our sofa, and finally found one on a children's decor site - Land of Nod. My DIL had bought a small one and it was just right for us. I hope you have good luck finding something.

Great find!
I love old fashioned braided wool rugs. They wear like cast iron. There is a store -- gardnervillage.com that you buy them from.
Have a great day!

Hi Elaine. Love the pillows, and love your red toile sofa!! I don't know how you feel about adding a color to your room, but yellow looks smashing with red, and a little bit will go a long way! I pop of color in a yellow pillow, or a throw, even an area rug with some yellow in it, would be so fun. You could go for a more subdued hue, like the golden yellow of sunflowers even. A vase of sunflowers on your coffee table too, that would be a fun way to pull some yellow in. Just a thought.

Loving those pillows. I'm thinking an oatmeal colored rug maybe? Something with specks in it so it doesn't show the pet hair or stains very well.

The pillows look fantastic on your toile sofa. :D Very pretty. I personally do not like rugs because of allergies and asthma, so don't ask me because you know my answer;P
