Hi all. I hope you've had a good week thus far. It always takes me a little time to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. The desire to stay in my jammies all day and eat sugary treat after sugary treat still lingers, but I'm trying to kick back into real life. The working out has commenced once again and that's helping.
I want to give you a look at a little project I worked on for friends of ours. They recently purchased their first non-IKEA living room set - a sofa, ottoman and two chairs. I haven't actually seen the set in real life yet, but here's a picture of it.

It's a charcoal colour as you can see which is great for their family of 6. I think they made an excellent choice. Modern but classic lines and the tufted detail is nice.
My friend asked for some help choosing pillows. She had black, white, and moss green in mind but was open to other suggestions. She also said she liked dots and chevron.
I came up with three different options. I kind of thought that they may want lighter colours since the charcoal of the sofa and chairs was already quite dark. Option No.1 was my favourite and was their favourite in the end too. I strayed from the black, white and green but delivered the dots and chevron. The dark charcoal colour appears in the chevron pattern (which ties in nicely with the sofa & chairs) alongside other shades of grey and a little bit of gold to warm things up.
I did try and find some nice black, white and green options if she did want to stick to those colours. These options could work as well.
I so enjoy doing this kind of thing. Thanks for asking, Kim! Can't wait to see it come together.
I *heart* pillows. They're the perfect way to add colour, pattern and pretty to your space.
