New Couch

While I was back at work full time, we got a new couch. While I love our couch and how comfortable it is, I've been frustrated because I'd like to see some pops of color in the room.

Our curtains are from West Elm and the color is blue sage. I like the contrast between the blue and the wall color. (Notice the unsightly mom jean jumper colored chair in the corner. Phil named it. It's not really working for me.)

Here are the pillows I picked up at Target. I really like them, but I would also like to see some warmer colors in the room.

I found this rug on West Elm and would really like this to be the color palette but I don't know how to put it in place.

I find myself drawn to the color palette in the photos below but I'm not sure how to translate this into my room. Any ideas? Any fabric that you've seen lately that would work?


  1. I don't know if this is what you have in mind, but I've really been loving this fabric:


    It doesn't quite work with my family room decor, but I think it would look so cute!

  2. Oooh that fabric is good Katie! It goes with your naturals but still has the pop! I like your inspiration pic... You could do a small print an frame it?

  3. I was thinking that since Rita will obviously grace the new couch with her presence, you could always paint her whatever color you want to make the couch pop! Then, when she takes her naps, she will not only look so stinking cute, but she'll also be an accessory! :) I love that Rita dog!

  4. That red color in the rug is calling your name! Cover your MJJ chair with it. You can do it!

  5. cute fabrics and rug! i say just go for it and somehow make it work!
