i scream for ikat

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

If you have been reading my blog lately you know that I am lovin' anything ikat pattern. I scoured Etsy and found some pillows that I love and they arrived at our house while we were in Yosemite. Such a fun surprise to open when I got home! I also changed out the center piece on the coffee table for a different look that goes better with the new pillows. Stay tuned for that DIY update tomorrow! Here are some before pictures of our family room...

hard to get a good photo when it's light out but this is another shot of the "wintery" pillows

and after...

 i even saw ikat print pillows in my newest pottery barn catalog!

 a little ikat print and a little trellis print   
this picture is a little dark but do you think i should get one more ikat pillow for the right side of the couch to match the left side? or do you like that it's not matchy matchy?

On a side note, Matt created a video from our backpacking trip that I really want to share but youtube and facebook both disabled it from being posted because it contains music that is copyrighted. I am SO bummed because the movie is not the same without the music. Suggestions? If you still want to take a peak of us in action click on my facebook tab to the right and you can watch it there. And while you are there watching the video be sure to "like" my page. Thanks!

See you tomorrow with the updated coffee table tray!

PS Matt says it's okay to update the pillows every few years just not every season. ;)
