black & white pillows

by Amy Azzarito

I’ve been working on updating my living room for fall. I’ve rearranged some furniture, painted and found a new rug, but my progress was stopped short by a pillow quandary. I wanted to do a huge mass of pillows on my silver-gray velvet sofa and had been leaning toward a bunch of kilim pillows (we did this in the office, and it looks pretty great), but then I got the souk rug from West Elm and started thinking about carrying the black and white of the rug to the sofa. I think a grouping of graphic black and white pillows could look pretty spectacular on any sofa. But now every time I look at my sofa, I have this refrain: kilim or black and white, kilim or black and white? Oh, small decisions. Don’t do this to me! — Amy Azzarito
