Boys, Dogs, & Pillows


Can anyone guess what is wrong with this picture?  Most days our family room looks like this.  Well, minus the umbrella.  Someone who thinks he is clever put that there.  In the early morning hours, my husband and I go to the gym.  Before we leave we "flip the pillows" to keep our dog off of the couch.  After the gym comes a flurry of activities which doesn't end until the evening.  So all this to say, this is my reality.  Reality posts are good from time to time aren't they?


In other news, I moved the pillows from the kitchen banquette to the living room and love the way they pop against the inky blue pillows ( from Radiance From Ruins).  Why did I not do this sooner?  You gotta love a free update.


Do you have plans this weekend?  My husband comes home today and we plan to spend time outside in the garden enjoying this pretty spring weather.  Gosh I've missed that man!  Have a great weekend!

  1. That looks great - I love the green against the blue! What color are your walls in this room? I'm looking for a soft neutral to repaint our den. Thanks!

  2. My white sofa does not look as white as yours!! I have a dog and two young kids. Probably getting a white sofa wasn't the smartest thing but at least I can wash it! The green pillows look SO great with the navy! Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Love your switch up of the pillows and enjoy your weekend with the family. I have a client meeting next week and she has already told me that her husband doesn't "do" throw pillows....mmmm....I'm going to have to be doing lots and lots of arm twisting.

  8. Well...well....that is a good idea...I usually have a sheet on my furniture. I don't know why they like to sleep on the sofa and chairs....I guess because I let them in the beginning huh???? Dang it. It does drive me crazy though. Love those pillows on the sofa....but now do you need new ones on the banquet?

  9. The pillows look great there. Have you tried putting aluminum foil on the couch? Just a piece of it...dogs usually don't like it and find another spot.

  13. Oh Rene, I love that you shared your real-life pictures! My couch is usually covered in stuffed-animals and various cars.

    I love the way your green and blue pillows look on your white slip-covers. Striking and springy and gorgeous. My favorite color combo, too.
