Bright and Cheery Spring/Summer Throw Pillows

I decided to go bright and cheerful in the living room for spring and summer this year. Since I’ve got the perfect neutral background with white and gray couches and pale blue-green-gray walls, I knew the room could handle some color.

I found the gorgeous watercolor floral print at Home Fabrics and coordinated everything else around it. I threw in the gray fabric to tie into my gray couch and chairs that have the same fabric for cushions.

I still haven’t figured out how I’m going to arrange the room. I know I need a coffee table, so I’ll be on the look out at thrift stores and yard sales. And obviously I need wall art. I just can’t decide what I want to hang and I do not want a bunch of holes in my new paint job until I’m sure what I want.

This little side table probably isn’t right for the space, but I love it. It’s antiqued metal and I found it alongside the road. Roadkill rescue! I bought the lamp used for $10, and the yellow mirror is one I got at the dollar store years ago and painted.

I crocheted the coral pillow with yarn I already had and whipped up the rest of the pillows in one afternoon. Since I already owned all the pillow forms, the pillows only cost me about $20 in fabric. Talk about bang for your buck!
