Pillow Drama

Ok, faithful readers, I need your help deciding which pillow combination to go with on my sofa in the den. I have desperately been wanting to add some pink accents in my house. Well, I found some pink pillows at Tuesday Mornings of all places. I mean that place is seriously creepy and I did feel like I needed to take a shower after I left there, but they did have some decent rugs and pillows. I think this pink might be too bright in my den. I was looking for more of a peony/honeysuckle pink but for the price ($19.99) I thought I had to try these out (and they are returnable). I have taken pictures of the 4 different combos of pillows for my den. Take a look and vote for your favorite or please give me a suggestion for a different pillow to add to the mix! Thanks girls! xoxo

COMBO ONE: LEOPARD NEEDLEPOINT + HOT PINK



COMBO TWO: LEOPARD NEEDLEPOINT + SOLID GREEN



COMBO THREE: CHOCOLATE BROWN GEOMETRIC + MONOGRAM "M"



COMBO FOUR: LEOPARD NEEDLEPOINT + MONOGRAM "M"



Thoughts? After looking at these pictures I am not sure I love the pink. Curious what ya'll think.

I really like the chocolate and the monogram but if you wanted to lighten up the room maybe try a third pillow or lumbar pillow with the green (to tie in with the apples) and a lighter pink?

Alicia xoxxo said...

I like the pink! It is fun and bright! I love bright colors! I vote go for it!

Pink and leopard are two of my absolute favorite things, so my first instinct is that one. But I see what you're saying about the pink not being quite right, so I think the 4th option is a great alternative!

PS thanks so much for your sweet comment, it made my day!

I love all things green, pink, leopard & monogrammed. So many great options. I think a pop of color is always ok ;)

Kerr said...

I like the green pillows with the leopard. But all of them are cute!

Jill said...

The leopard and the hot pink!!!

kindrathings said...

Great options! My vote is for the chocolate geometric & monogram:-)

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Hmmm...that is a toughie! I'm always going to go for bright...I totally love the pink! I think you may be right, though, about it needing to perhaps be a bit more toned down...but hey, I think I would still rock it! (c:

im as traditional as they come, and i still looove the pink. such a bold punch of color. a close runner up is the monogram and the chocolate geometric - good gracious, i love a monogram! maybe you could use the pink for spring/summer, then rotate to a more toned down combo for fall/winter. xx.

GiGi said...

i love the leopard/pink combo, as well as the leopard monogrammed combo....if you aren't sure about the pink pillows, maybe you could find a lacquered pink tray for the coffee table?

Lisa Fergus said...

I like the first 2, but honestly the hot pink is my favorite! Great finds!!!

I love the monogram pillows - but I'm a sucker for anything monogrammed - and I just love the look of them! My vote is for the monogram/brown geometric combo, but to add a punch of pink (which I also love) I'm with GiGi above - a lacquered pink tray would be P.E.R.F.E.C.T under your glass vase w/ the apples!!

Christina said...

pink!!! combo 1. it really makes it pop.

lizziefitz said...

i am loving #3 and #4. Does that mean I am not much of a risk taker?

Cassie {Hi Sugarplum!} said...

option #5 -- 2 leopard, 2 pink and 1 monogram

UPTOWN WIFE said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. My pick would definitely be the monogram pillows. It looks very elegant and classic.

UPTOWN WIFE said...

oh and with the brown geometric pillows... forgot that part :)

TeresaG said...

They all look great but I love the pink in the mix and of course the monogram is great for a Den (or any room)!

Melanie said...

I love the pink, it's a fun pop of color to the room.

Natalie said...

I love the leopard and pink, maybe throw a monogrammed in there too?

Erin {HuddyP} said...

I'm a fan of the pink sista. Pink and leopard it is. Then maybe save the geometric and monogram for the fall?

Laura said...

I really like the pink. I'd say pink and leopard or leopard and monogram!

Michaela said...

I agree with Cassie! More pillows the better, right?! I love the leopard though (: It says that you're daring and I like that!

I don't think you can go wrong here, I love the leopard. I think paired with the green is my favorite combo!

Mimi said...

I loove combo #3

Nikosmommy said...

I'm liking the choco brown and monogram! Personally I'd go with a solid choco brown with a satin finish AND the leopard print pillows too. (texture and pattern together!)

TamStyles said...

something in me likes the pink..a punch of color...the monogram pillows are nice as well...and great blog. my first visit here.

Sweet Southern Prep said...

Love the pink! Looks great with your green apples, too.

Michelle @ Ten June said...

Cassie hit the nail on the head! That's exactly what I was going to suggest. I love the pink/leopard but you could "sophisticate" it up a bit with one monogrammed pillow. Ohh yeah. That will be cute! Let us know when you try taht combo!

Married...with a Pup said...

I personally love the monogram and leopard pillow combo! A nice touch of both classic and fun!
