PILLOW TALK





OK....So....we got pretty smug here in Atlanta......  having hardly any days of really hot weather and then BAM.  

We are hot....so hot they are warning us on TV with an "excessive heat advisory".

After that I was afraid to go outside so I stayed home and cleaned my house yesterday.  Seriously that's what it takes sometimes to get the deed done....an act of God.

What is it about cleaning anyway.  It's something you have to stay on top of kind of like calorie intake.  If you don't watch it all hell will break loose in both categories.

I had to get the camera out and take a few pictures of a couple of pillows I am donating to charity  Of course that opened up a whole can of worms and I found myself rummaging through the pillow archives to see what I could come up with.

Thought it might be an interesting post.....of course I will let you guys be the judge of that.

So these are the 2 that are going to charity.

I added the stripe pillow and changed up the coffee table a little.

Threw in some cheetah cause....it always works huh?

And.....a little turquoise can do the trick.

Take out the orange...add brown and white chevron.  Change out the coffee table.

I'm on a roll.

Change out the throw and add a cream pillow....things are crazy town now.

2 different pillows and a little tweaking to the coffee table.  Pink carnations are still working.

In my opinion.  .99 cents at the Kroger [on sale]

Complete overhaul.  Pillows and coffee table accessories.

Change the throw....

Add some texture on the coffee table.
Back to the cream pillow with one from the guest room...

And....drum roll please.  Hands down.


My favorite combination.  I still walk in my LR and swoon when I gaze on this beauty.  Schumacher Pyne Hollyhock in charcoal.

2 years and going strong.

What y'all up to this weekend?  I am thinking of painting my guest bathroom....like I have been for months now.  Then I get busy.....doing nothing:)

You always make my day and of course, I can count on you for my pillow inspiration. Loving your last image…perfection!! So hot in NC too…looking forward to fall now…happy weekend!!

Two years has GOT to be a record. I found that the coral crewel Pottery Barn pillows I bought only lasted two months and now I am tired of them and mad at myself (in a donation pile). The Hollyhock lumbars in my bedroom have been here since we moved…and I still love them, too. Perhaps more neutral is just the way to go.

Your photography is sooo lovely. What camera do you have? A tripod too?

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Yes the heat has set in and my niece is getting married outside at 6:30 on Saturday. Stupid I tell ya. I dread it.

Vel Criste said...

All the combination you did is just perfect, so tough to choose but I agree with you on your winner!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

Two years is impressive. But I think hollyhock will look good 22 years from now. Love your pillow musical chairs! Its damn hot here too.

Krystine @ www.KrystineEdwards.com said...

i love them all!!!

Kristy @ I Design Love said...

My favorite combo is the cheetah print and the Hollyhock. So pretty!

Ok now I have to switch out my living room pillows and re-arrange my coffee table accessories.

René said...

Each one is winner and so are you. Have a great weekend & stay cool.

Judy said...

I love how the white flowered kalanchoe in the dark pot and white beads work with several of the combinations.

Nichole said...

OH Sweet Jesus! That last one makes you wanna slap somebody!!! FABULOUS!!!!! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! So jealous of all your beautiful gear!

The enchanted home said...

Wow Shari they are all soooo beautiful. I miss being here. I cannot wait to get you back on my blogroll (hopefully it will be fixed by this week). Love and miss your humor too. You are a pillow queen!

Oh my goodness I love the styling vignettes...The hollyhock is one of my all time favorites so this set up has my heart...but honestly all were amazing. That was one good styling workout you did!

Sherri Cassara said...

They all look great and I am glad that of them all you still love your current ones. Sometimes when I go back and look at all the different ways my house has changed I wonder, "Why did I change it?". Pillows are such an easy switch! I agree with Mary Ann ... the first thing I thought (besides the pillow love) was how wonderful your photography is. :)
