Pillow Mania from the Polar Vortex

You will be happy to know that I didn't leave you out while I was on break.  Nope.  I am right where we left off:  fretting about the living room rug.  Lonny just named Beni Ourain rugs one of the three trends they hope will die in 2014.  So that's nice.  Nothing like getting in on the way down.  (Does anyone else feel that the popularity of the beni can be traced almost single-handedly to the pages of Lonny?)

No, really, I love it, and I don't care so much about being "current."  These rugs are one of those items that have been trending lately, but the authentic ones are classics that will never go out of style.

Next up?  Finishing off the space.  In this case, that means pillows.  Since we haven't left the house in 4 days, I have had plenty of time to search the internets high and low and put together too many schemes.

(actually, this was helpful.)

It feels like the room wants to be sort of neutralish with so much going on, but I want color.  Who wins?  Let's take a look.

1. Major color

2. Minor color

3.  Gold and black

4. Black and tan

5. Green and Brown

What do you think?

Of course, I could always recover the green chair.  And those lamps could be spray painted.  Like a dog chasing its own tail......
