Since moving in I’ve managed to only get a few projects done. I’ve tried to take it slow.. one room at a time but let’s be honest.. at what point does one ever stop decorating?
I’ll admit it…I have mastered the art of having champagne taste on a beer budget. It’s actually a gift that I’m quite proud of and I love a good deal. After making a few updates in our living room this summer a new couch isn’t really an option for me right now so for the time being, accent pillows will suffice. On Saturday morning, I arrived at HomeGoods right as they were opening their doors – I was a girl on a mission for pillows. After perusing aisle after aisle, unfortunately, I just couldn’t find what I was looking for- trust me, as a loyal patron of Homegoods this is sad for me to admit. So, I cheated and ventured off to TJ Max, then to Pier 1, and still… nothing.
Store after store I began feeling defeated so I did what any millennial would do. I grabbed my phone and googled “accent pillows near me”. It was too good to be true! Pottery Barn had its Rhett Print Pillow Cover on sale and it’s what I had envisioned all along. I’m in love with Caitlin Wilson Pillows but with my “beer budget” $70 per pillow cover + insert isn’t feasible for me at this time so I knew I had to be creative. Online, these pillow covers were showing on sale for $28 but The Summit Pottery Barn had them on clearance for $9.99 each. So, I still had to buy the inserts but that that means I snagged these beauts for about $36 total. So far, I’m happy with the outcome. Oh, and although I went in for pillows I also managed to snag another deal on this Jamie Stripe Linen Cotton Duvet for a whopping… get ready for it… $39. I’ll do a post about that soon… There are a million more things that I need to do in here but for now, I’m content and have to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
