There are two things I love finding in my mailbox: this week’s edition of New York magazine
and the Crate & Barrel catalog. I walk into my apartment, grab a pen and place either issue on my bed. I arrange them perfectly, in order to study them later and take notes. Like any
normal nerdy person would. And then I take off my coat and put down my purse. That’s how giddy excited I get.
I love to think about each and every page, mentally redecorating my entire apartment. I pick new furniture. I pick new accessories. I think about parties I would host. It is an hour of daydreaming excitement.
About a year ago, I decided that the next piece of furniture I purchase will be the Aidan Sofa.
It was love at first sight. Each time I’m in a Crate & Barrel store, I gaze at it longingly. Je T’aime. Me Amo. Love in all languages. It’s a full on courtship.
Imagine my delight when the catalog arrived and new fabrics had been chosen for the pillows. Fandom proved, I know which are year-round and which are seasonal fabrics. The new fabrics set in motion a chain reaction of mentally accessorizing my “new” sofa many times over. Here are my 9 favorite pillows:
And you? Is the sofa your style? What pillows would you use to accessorize that sofa? Do you also mentally redecorate while flipping through home decor catalogs?
Until next time!
