One Couch, Three Ways

Hello dear readers! Happy Fat Tuesday to you all.  Are you doing anything special today?  😉

So I’ve been experimenting with different looks for my couch and side tables and wanted to share with you three different looks.   Here’s the first look, you probably will recognize it if you have been here before. 

I added a couple of accessories that I will tell you about later.  You can see this looks has a lot of gray, purple, and green.

I added these colors to “modernize” the yellow walls (because we are not allowed to paint them).  They compliment the yellow nicely but nothing ever stays the same for very long around here. 😉



For the second look, I wanted to take away the purple and green and add boldness with black and white. I switched out the lamps and tried my new pillow covers.

I love the gold bowl on the coffee table with the black and white pillows. (One of my new accessories.)
There is also a new pencil box with a pretty etched-scallop detail.

For the final look, I brought back my purple and green pillows and purple lamps but kept the bigger black and white pillow.  I have a feeling there will be a change to the lamps soon.

I love this look!

Just the balance I was looking for. Do you have a favorite? I would love to hear what you think.

  1. Kathy, I enjoyed the different looks very much! I rarely change things around…..this is making me want to try some new looks! I do like the third arrangement- it looks fresh, like spring. Thanks for the ideas! ♥ If you have time, I’d love for you to share this with us at Treasure Box Tuesday today! 🙂

    1. Thank you Joy! I just linked up to Treasure Box. I can’t turn down a personal invitation! 😉 So sweet of you. Have fun trying new looks.

    1. LOL, seriously girl, you are so stinkin cute. You always make me laugh. 😉 Have a fabulous Tuesday my friend!

  2. I love that you have different looks… I’m so lacking in the decor area. 😛 Which is a shame because I absolutely love the first look, with the green! You are right that it complements the yellow – I wouldn’t have thought that, but it totally works!

    1. Thanks for the comment Adrianne! You are so creative I know you could rock some decor. It’s all about trial and error. 😉

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment Amanda!! We are really happy with the rug and I love that black and white pillow on the couch. I’m glad I tried it out!

  3. Oh how I love black, white and stripes! Loving the second look! It made my heart jump a beat–for real, for real 🙂

  4. I love it! All three look completely different even though there are only small, subtle changes. I wish I had the gift of decorating! 🙂

  5. You have such excellent taste! When the hubs and I buy our first house, I am coming straight to your blog!! Thank you for sharing 🙂

    1. Thanks Nancy! Having your first house is such a fun (and sometimes stressful) adventure. I can’t wait for you guys to experience it! 😉

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment!! I LOVE having the black and white graphic pillow against the softer colors. I think it will stay a while. 😉
