There’s a lot to say about this spot. Herringbone throw, something crocheted, swing arm lamp, shabby chic mantle flying solo with no fireplace, and a paisley chair (Or are those amoebas? Paisley? Amoebas? Amoebas? Paisley? Just wondering. Always have.)
But our eye goes to the sequined pillow. Monotoned … or as monotoned as something like a sequin that reflects light can be. And, because of that refracted light, the pillow manages to match all the other gray tones in the room. The chair. The crocheted foot rest. The scrapes on the solo mantle. The rug. That is it’s genius. If it weren’t for the pillow this room would be manic.
And, who knew you could get your bling on with pillows? But you can. Pillows are harmless. Seemingly. But these harmless swatches of fabric and stuffing can take room bubbling with chaos and sit all the players in a row and get them to raise their hands. Pillows can be the generals in a room where the battle is on for focus.
