picking pillows

The living room got lots of use last week with all the visitors ... but one thing was missing: couch pillows! The new West Elm catalog came recently, and I fell in love with their new colors and patterns. So I stopped by today, and grabbed a selection to try out.

Here's what I landed on:

And here's what didn't quite make the cut:

What do you think? Am I crazy for loving the brown and cream zebra print? Does the slightly-off turquoise pillow look chic and mismatched, or just awkward? Can I really get away with two patterns next to each other? Share your thoughts, stylish friends :)


  1. Love it! Although I may or may not have an unhealthy obsession with animal print...

  2. Yes... yes, I love the mixed patterns and the turquoise. The couch is a solid color, and provides a lot of contrast. GO FOR IT! Pillows are not meant to be uniform/boring (especially in the home of a hip, with-it, 20-something!)
