Ticking Stripes and Plaid

Hello everyone!

Hope your week is going well so far.  It has been so cloudy and rainy here for the last several days.  I miss the sunshine!  The house has been dark and dreary as a result.  

I did manage to get a few pics of the new pillows and throw that I received recently though.  I bought these at Pottery Barn during their winter clearance so everything was 50% off and free shipping!  

I have recently fallen IN LOVE with brown and white ticking stripes!  So, when I saw these European shams for sale, I knew just where they would go.


I like the fact that they fill up the entire back side of the chairs.  I placed one in this chair by the fireplace and  in the other chair on the opposite side of the room.  


It just says farmhouse to me!  It also blends perfectly with the white and burlap already in the room.


Here is a close-up of the stripes.


These pillows blend in nicely with the smaller ones on my sofa too.


I also purchased this plaid fringed throw.  It is so soft and the colors work perfectly in here too.  We use our throws every day. No kidding!  I have this one and a thick charcoal grey one that gets a lot of use in the winter.  


So, since it's raining and cold out, we may just have to use these throws tonight and build us a fire!  

Oh..........and do any of you watch American Idol?  The first show of the season is coming on tonight!  Yay! Can't wait to see it. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your new pillows and throw. Still warm here and I am sick of the rain.

Robin said...

All three are a great additon to your room. In my book you can never go wrong with ticking stripe and plaid. It's too perfect.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Kelly. You never can have too many pillows or throws. They have been coming in handy already this winter. Yeah, AI. Love it but sort of get tired of the crazies but it is fun to watch from the beginning to see if you can spot the final winner. I picked PP last year the first time I saw him..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Bonnie said...

Your ticking pillows make a great new addition to your room.

After 76-77 for days I think I am ready for cooler temps. I have daffadills blooming already!

I love to view your great stoneware collection. It looks fabulous in your cabinet.

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Kelly, love your new goodies!! You make everything look so warm and cozy! Looking forward to AI, too!

Love your ticking shams and your new throw. I'm sitting here with a cozy throw on my lap and my little yorkie, Zoey, is enjoying it too...while we watch American Idol.

Funny you posted this. I found a down filled brown and white ticking striped pillow at the Goodwill for $4. It had an "E" monogram on it so I bought it anyway and just turned it around. Love the brown stripe!

It's been pretty cloudy and dreary here too. Hard for me to get good pictures for the blog!

Blondie's Journal said...

Did I miss this sale?! I love the pillows and throw. In fact, my kitchen curtains are the same brown ticking stripe.

We are actually having a lot of sun but it is bitter cold...20's. Lots of quilts on the bed at night!

XO,
Jane

That looks so cosy and warm - I love this look.

Daphne Bryson said...

Good Morning Kelly, I could light a fire and curl up in your chair and read my book.....of course with your lovely throw draped around me. Have a lovely day, Best Wishes Daphne

Cynthia said...

Love the pillows and ticking stripe, it works with any decor. I also love the armoire in the picture, is that ironstone, I see, very pretty.

Your pillows are perfect for your room. They add so much warmth and comfort. You and Kim have such an eye for great pillows. Not my forte, so I'm trying to learn from both of you.

Susan said...

Kelly, you have such great style. :)

Olive said...

I love ticking stripes too. I found the PB blue and white shams and Q duvet at a yard sale for ten dollars. I use it in my guest room.

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

The brown really warms up your space and coordinates nicely with your cow picture over the mantel. I'm covered in 2 afghans right now. We're in a deep freeze in MN and our old drafty house has lots of fresh air leaking in. :@

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Great Euro shams Kelly...I have the same ones...bought them when I bought the Winter Birds bedding at PB...It looks great on your chair!!!...love the throw too...Just got my rewards from PB and gift cards from my birthday...so off to PB soon to hopefully take advantage of some great deals as yours!!!

Bliss said...

I love that new pillow, and try as I might NOT to watch American Idol, the kids always do and I find myself being sucked in.

Love your new pillows...what a great deal! I love your style...I'm a new follower:)

Debby said...

A nice cozy fire sounds good to me, but here in California we have something called "spare the air days," which seems to be just about every day recently. We cannot burn indoors or out because of the air quality. It has been unseasonably gold here the past few weeks, in the 20s at night,but still really cold during the day even with the sun out. It's not like I live in LA or anything, I live in northern CA, but they are real strict about the air quality.

The brown ticking looks wonderful. I've been eyeing a bolt of this fabric on eBay for a few weeks. I may just have to buy it. :o) Way to go on hitting the sale too!

Katarina said...

Great additions to your lovely home! :-)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love ticking, especially as a second pattern in a room with florals or toile. These look very pretty on your chairs, too. Love your new throw. I've got them all over, too, and we do use ours as well. Nothing better than pulling one over you when there's a bit of a chill!

The plaid throw combined with the ticking looks wonderful, Kelly
