Target, baby! And as pillow luck would have it, these even contain the same shade of citrine green as the West Elm ikats, and perfectly match the tomato red in the rug.
The red pillows (sorry, but I can't find them online), along with the pops of red in the bookcase, give this room just the edge I was looking for! Didn't someone say every room needs a touch of red?
The red DIY Elephant Bookends help to balance the soft pink of the bookcases, and bring out the vibrant colors in the artwork.
Ooops, I just realized I've yet to post the other DIY projects in the bookcases. Those are coming right up. Sometime. Eventually.
I kept the Wilmington Covington pillow because it combines all the colors of the room, and the floral is a nice contrast to the geometric. I do wish it was a different size or shape, but I'll try not to obsess over that
I also struck gold with Target's Chevron Shade. I'm crazy about the stripey pattern paired with the sweet bird floral of the lamp, and the gold is just perfect. Duh!
The gold has a nice metallic sheen in real life, and even more so when the lamp is turned on.
So what do you think...did I hit a bullseye with my Target finds? (Get it? Target, bullseye??!) We're getting down to the end on the Living Room To Do List....obviously I'm dragging my feet where the secretary is concerned. (Anyone want to come help me?!) Oh, and you may have noticed the lamps behind the sofa aren't the black and gold ones. I did a little switcheroo, and stumbled upon some new ones! Lamp-a-Looza vote coming up next!!
