Black and White Pillows

I recently posted about my dilemma in finding reasonably priced throw pillows. A bunch of you shared your favorite places for finding reasonably priced options and it looked liked HomeGoods was a favorite for most. It's usually my go to store, but I hadn't found anything I liked in the past. It turned out that the week I posted my dilemma also happened to be an employee discount weekend for them. I have a family member who works there that asked me if I wanted to come, so I figured with all of the recommendations and the discount, I should definitely give it another shot. I'm so glad I did!
They must have had a pillow event going on because when I walked into the store there were pillows in the front aisles and there were more pillows than I've ever seen at a HomeGoods. I ended up leaving with six pillows in four different designs. Far more than we actually need. Which brings me to a new dilemma, which ones should we keep? The beige striped pillows and the black and off white trellis pillow we already own.
We took a few different variations on what we'd like to do.


In case anyone is interested, here is where the pillows are from and their pricing:
Striped beige pillows from Jordan's Furniture, came with the couch
Black and off white trellis pillow, Park on Etsy $55
White ruffle pillows, Homegoods $16.99 each
Black and off white chevron pillow, Marshalls $19.99 set of two
Black diamond design pillow, HomeGoods $14.99
Black and off white floral pillow, HomeGoods $19.99

Jim and I are usually on a similar page, but we're pretty torn about this. I'm leaning more towards the look of the first photo. I love having lots of pillows in a mix of patterns. Jim likes the look of the second photo with just the beige and white pillows. We're both in agreement on adding black accents to the living room though, so I think the second option doesn't works as well.

What do you think? Any favorite pillows you think we should keep? Do you like the mix of patterns, or more neutral with the beige and white? Any other combinations you think we should try?


  1. FIRST PICTURE!!!!!! Definitely!!! Great job with finding such great deals, they're all great!

  2. i really like the b/w pillow and the white pillows! they add lots of pretty to your couch :)

    1. It's so reassuring to hear thatt. I really do love the black and white.

  3. I'm lovin' the first picture with the mixture of pillows!

  4. I don't know how I missed this post :) I like the look of the first pic too, but I know how men are.. they don't like anything geometric or colorful! haha Maybe you could compromise and put a black and white pillow on the sitting chair and keep the couch neutral? Either way, both options look great!
