WHEN: January 2, 2015 (really got after it that Friday)
WHERE: HD Buttercup
WHAT: 2 rust colored throw pillows; $242.30 (total)
WHY: HD Buttercup is a fabulous home furnishing store in San Francisco. The space is massive and jammed with a million interesting pieces. Twice a year they have a sale with deep discounts and I always make sure to stop by. This time, I was on the hunt for some new throw pillows to go on our cream sofa, replace the existing floral pillows (which are a bit small) and coordinate with a relatively new rug. Wasn’t sure if these (the square, stripey ones, on the ends in the picture above) would work or not but knew I could return if necessary.
WELL? I thought they were good, not great. Husband declared them “too Navajo” and I see what he means. The colors were pretty much a perfect match with the rug but I think maybe they were too dark/high contrast with the ivory couch? I don’t know. I love looking at home decor blogs and sites like Houzz.com, but when it comes down to details like finding the perfect throw pillow, I lose patience (and interest) very quickly. These went back and have yet to be replaced. Suggestions happily welcomed.
