I love pillows. I think that accent pillows are the jewelry in a room... especially if they're done well. I was reading the NY Times "Key" magazine on property this afternoon (it takes all week to read the Sunday edition) and there were four rooms from country singers in Nashville. One of them caught my eye and kept me staring, but in horror, not admiration.
LeAnn Rimes, the singer who had her first hit at age 13, had designed this and maybe other rooms in her house. I applaud her for that undertaking, but I am left to wonder what's up with the pillows! If you look carefully, there are pillows on almost the entire surface of both sofas, with barely room to sit. They're all chopped in the middle, too. And then there are the pillows on the floor. Not big poofy sitting pillows either. I can't imagine just plunking down on those!
This room adjoins the kitchen, so I am sure that it's a sitting room. But when you want to sit on the facing sofas, do you have to throw all of those pillows on the floor with the others? I need someone to explain this to me. Any helpers?
