...put a pillow over your face and scream. Especially if it is an exceptionally pretty pillow from potterybarn.com.
Exhibit A. Contrast, elegance, appliqué. I have an understated tropical feel.
Exhibit B. The patterns on each of these pillow are unique and simple yet striking. I am simply saddened by the fact that never would I think to put these three patterns together and even imagine such a beautiful result. I especially like the color of the green pillow.
Exhibit C. These are pillows that might actually have a chance of appearing in my home. Very simple and restrained yet colorful and balanced. I would totally nap on those stripes. Plus, they're slimming...
Exhibit D. I have an obsession with polka dots that was acquired within the past few years. There's just something about the symmetry...it's...hypnotizing...
Exhibit E. I wouldn't use the butterfly pillow in my house now, because the overtly feminine design wouldn't be fair to Husband (I don't think he could properly play one of his first person shooter video games while leaning against this pillow). However, if I was single and had a pink couch, I would be all over this pillow, because YUM.
The good news? BEAUTIFUL SHINY PRETTY THINGS. The bad news? Not one of these pillows is available for under $25 (and most are OVER $50...for serious). I do not keep my hatred of our current sofa throw pillows a secret. But I also would not pay $25 for ONE PILLOW. Even if it was as pretty as these.
