Warmer tones for Cooler days

By changing the pillows in my living room from the lighter colored ones that I used during the summer to these warmer colored ones, it gave the room a cozier feel for the cooler months ahead. 


 I can't even tell you how many of these toffee checked covers I bought from Ballards, they're my favorite.  I also ordered the velvet ones in Latte.
Sorry for the glare. This is how the room looks with the early morning sun coming thru the windows.
I love how Kim added the antlers above the pics in her sitting room. I was thinking of adding them in here, what do you think? 

I love how a simple change gave this room a whole new look, and I'm liking it!

The pillows make for such a cozy look this time of year! Love them!

Leslie Harris said...

Martina, I'm such a fan of chocolate brown, especially checks. I agree that it warms the room which is perfect for the change of seasons. And yes, I do think the antlers would add a bit of fun...although I haven't bought any yet, either.

Antlers would certainly fit right in. Loving the Ballard pillow covers. I have been switching my slip covers over from yellow to denim for winter.

Martina, what fabulous fall pillows. I just might have to get those brown/white check ones! I think small antlers would be PERFECT above your sofa as part of the wall vignette!
Martina, you have great style!

The pillows look fabulous in your pretty room...and I think antlers would be perfect above your pictures.

Those checked pillows are so pretty and now...yep....now I want some just like them. Going to search on Ballard and see if they are in my budget. I really love them.

Your room is lovely. The antlers would be a nice touch, but of course it looks nice just the way it is too. Love the check pillows.

Babs said...

Love your neutral color living room and the check pillows. Every time I see your living room, I wish I had a neutral sofa in my LR instead of the moss green one. Great lamp on your side table, too.

Those pillows are wonderful Martina. Perfect warm up.

Happy Weekend!

Cindy said...

Your couch is lovely and those pillows are beautiful. I love the arrangement of pictures above the couch, of course antlers would look fabulous above them, but it looks great as is, I think.
That whole room is beautiful.
Hugs, Cindy

Isn't nice how a simple change can give a room a different feeling for the seasons.

Becca said...

Cozier, indeed! I love your pillows, Martina (and the sun streaming in)! And, I just might *have* to purchase a few of the checked covers, myself. And, the demijohn on your table makes for a perfect vignette.

Your room looks cozy and inviting Martina. I love your checked pillows. Hope you have a great week coming up!

I think the antlers would look wonderful on your wall! Love the pillow covers!
