Close Up-After


In a previous post (click here to view it), I wrote about changing the living room sofa pillows and throw blanket to cold weather fabrics like wool, chenille and cashmere.  At the time, it was too cold for cotton and linen.  Now that warmer weather has returned, it’s time to change the pillows back to airier fabrics. The new pillow covers are from Pottery Barn (click here and here to view the pillow covers) and Williams Sonoma Home (click here to view them), and I think they bring a casual coolness to the room. 

You may notice I didn’t change the cashmere throw, but I haven’t found just the right piece to replace it.  In my younger days, I would have bought a throw that was slightly off, just to have something there.  At this point, I’d rather make do or do without than to waste money on something I don’t love.  I also justified not buying a new throw on the fact that it’s lightly woven, so even though it’s cashmere, it’s not too heavy.
