Living Room Obsessions

I lusted over this until I could no longer have it!
Ok, so that's an exaggeration, but I did spend so many weeks on West Elm pining for this rug instead of actually buying it that it went on backorder. Until August 5. I couldn't even order it from a store! I'm an instant gratification kind of girl (Cue the The Fear) so I'm certainly not waiting until the end of summer to have my precious yellow rug. Drool worthy though it may be.

And so I bought this little darling.

It's just from Target, but it will do. Free shipping people! One week and $148 later I'm patting myself on the back. And I do love it in my living room. Pictures to follow. Perhaps some of you will chip in with ideas on what fabric I should get for the pillows I'm making. Yes, I'm making--sewing, even--pillows. Pick your jaws up off the floor now.

I guess I should be grateful I narrowly missed matching every other living room in America with that yellow rug. Backorder until August? As if.

Ah! That would be so amazing! Thank you! I want to warm the room up bc it has a lot of grays, blues, and white. Any thoughts?
