A Good Pillow

...is hard to find.

When last we left "The Room", I showed you my idea for window treatments from a duvet cover. I still haven't finished painting yet, but I'm slowly making progress.

I have been on the lookout for accessories, more specifically, throw pillows. So. Hard. To. Find. At least, hard to find ones that are cute, colorful and affordable - my three top criteria.

There are some wonderful ones on Etsy for sure, but they can get a bit pricey because they are custom made. Some places I've found good pillows, but not necessarily in my colors, are HomeGoods, Target, TJ Max and Pier One. But have you ever looked at the pillows and home accessories at Urban Outfitters? We dropped into one while we were in Charleston because I wanted to check out their home stuff I'd seen online and I was pretty impressed. The style is somewhat similar to some of the items you'd find at Anthropologie, but nowhere near as expensive.

I picked up these two for $32.00 each. Of course, still not cheap, but they look really expensive. I love the feel of these and the velvet puff comes in a bunch of different colors. I may just have to go back and get more!




Urban Outfitters has lots of other cool, fun house decor. Here are some of my faves.



What about you guys? Have you found some great things at Urban Outfitters? Any other good resources for throw pillows?

  3. I'm a stay-at-home mom married to a school teacher in a very low-paying state, so I don't think I could ever pay $32 for a pillow...but OH MY that blue pillow is the most BEAUTIFUL pillow I have ever seen! I might just have to ask Santa for it!

  4. I have been purposefully avoiding going to UO website cause I know I will want everything. And then you go and post things that I think are SO cute! Darn you!! :)

  5. I love that round blue fella. Yummy. There's quite a trend these days of pillow covers that are very affordable ($10-ish) so you can swap out every once in awhile without breaking the bank. Of course you have to invest in a pillow form but after that, the covers are pretty cute and very affordable. Beth/Bath/Beyond has them, as does Target, Wal-Mart and Pottery Barn. Though I think PB stuff is terrible quality and avoid it like that plague if it's anything that will be used like bed linens, etc. Just sayin'.

  8. Very cute. They really do look expensive, which can be hard to find. Although that price tag is a little more than I've usually spent on pillows, I think these are great finds... and worth the little extra! :)

  9. My retail gurus tell me Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters are the same company... making Urban Outfitters brand geared toward the "younger" crowd and somewhat "less expensive."

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
