I don't know if you heart Anthropologie as much as I do. But I just found another reason to love it even more.
I've been adding a few finishing touches to our apartment and was looking for some new pillows for the couch. I'm usually not a fan of the pillows that come with most couches. They're a tad boring, don't you think? But if you still have the pillows that came with your couch, I'm not going to judge you.
Anyway, I've been noticing all the beautiful crewel wool pillows on-line and in a lot of the stores. Then I noticed their price tags. Most of these type pillows are $200 dollars or more for just one tiny one. Pretty - yes. Pretty expensive - that would also be a yes. And since we're on a b-u-d-g-e-t living in the city, I just couldn't justify it.
Then I went to Anthro and saw this:
It's called their Floral Fresco rug. It's made out of wool and has a cotton backing. I loved the colors. Loved the size. I wished it was a pillow instead of a rug. I even said out loud, "I wish you were a pillow instead of a rug." What? Don't you talk to items as you shop? Then I noticed there was a cotton backing that was actually sewn onto the rug. It was like a pillowcase (but with no opening.) Why couldn't I turn it into a pillow?
I bought it and brought it home. Lily and I ripped it open and stuffed it with the down from the old sofa pillows. I was going to take a picture of the actual process, but that would have required leaving Lily in the room ALONE with feathers while I retrieved my camera. I'm sure you can understand my decision.
Here's a picture of the finished project:
I love how big it is and that it makes a statement. It also breaks up a lot of the beige I have going on.
Would love to know what you think! And please tell me you love Anthro as much as I do.
