Family Room Tour

I finally found some checked pillows in my favorite shade of blue. I have been looking for pillows like these forever and I'm so happy I finally found them. I just love checks and to me, they really embody the cottage style.

It's nice to have a fresh look especially on some of these  dreary winter days.
