I went shopping at Homesense yesterday for new bedroom pillows. Unfortunately I can never get out of that store with just the things on my list. I did get lovely new pillows but I didn't take a picture of them (pretty boring and utilitarian).
I did take a picture of the new lampshades I bought for the living room. They had ones that were burlap with French calligraphy on them but I decided they would be a bit busy. I ended up buying ones that were pleated burlap with covered buttons...
This may seem counter-productive when my goal in this room is to tweak a few things and bring more colour to the room. But I want to add some homespun charm to this room with colourful cushions and drapes, maybe a quilt or two, a new light fixture and by painting some furniture white and distressing it. I think these new lamp shades will be perfect. I'll have to donate the old ones.
These weren't the only things I bought - I got a new set of Cynthia Rowley towels in Apricot for the bathroom - bringing a splash of spring colour into it as well. I will post a picture after I hang my spring/summer shower curtain (yes - I change them seasonally although some people thing that's crazy!).
Then I got to the checkout and found they had bags for $1.49 - I HAD to have one. Now I can carry a little French flair around with me when I'm shopping...
