We've spent about a year and a half in our new place now and slowly but surely we've made it ours. When we first moved in we sort of overwhelmingly attacked everything, from new carpet to new paint, a new couch and a new bed. Then we tapered off and took more time with our decisions. Basically, just waited for things to come to us. My boyfriend found a good Salvation Army so he was making weekly stops on his way home from work looking for a dining table. We were looking for a very specific style, so one day when he walked in to SA for his regular stop on the way home from work and found our perfect table he was so EXcited!! He bought it and we brought our new favorite piece of furniture home the next day.
Then more recently I was feeling like our couch needed a little pick me up. Ideally I would have been able to afford, or would have come across extremely discounted, Jonathan Adler throw pillows. Since that didn't end up being the case I took my search to Etsy for some handmade pillows. I found these blue starburst/retro pillow covers by CottonColors on Etsy. I ordered them and she had them in the mail about three days later, it couldn't have been easier. Now we're all ready for Summer with our bright pillow updates!
