Pattern Problems

As many of you have already discovered if you’ve read this blog even once, I am giving my house a bit of a facelift. This is mine and Colby’s first year of marriage, and I’m working tirelessly at trying to make this house more of a home.

I have a confession to make. I have problems.

Problem #1:

Pillows are still on my couch from Christmas.

Problem #2:

The reason pillows are still on my couch from Christmas is because I have commitment issues.

Problem #3:

The reason I have commitment issues is because I love pattern, but I really don’t have that sense that tells you IMMEDIATELY when two patterns can sit by each other and like each other with no problem.

Problem #4:

I love color. Love it, I tell you! I’m a bit scared of it though. This is what I’m trying to break. I will pick a boring brown any day, but when it comes to true color…I freak. I can’t commit. That’s why I need your help!

Here are a couple of pillows I’m particularly drawn to because they go with my color scheme.

pillow 1

pillow 4

pillow 2

pillow 3

pillow 6

pillow 5

pillow 7

If you really feel sorry for me, please feel free to browse etsy and help me out! Which do you like of these? Got some suggestions? I’m particularly drawn to the first set. Please share!

Love and kisses!


  1. Tough choice. I like them all. As for your Christmas pillows, who says you can't have peace and hope all year long? :) Oh, and I have been meaning to thank you for the wedding pictures for so long. Sorry for the delayed thanks. They came during a very busy time for me. Your thoughtfulness didn't go unnoticed. I promise.

  2. I think I have the same pillow commitment a-phobia as you. It's an illness. I googled it.

    I really like the striped pillow and the one with the trees? (I think they're trees). But putting them together?? No idea....
