Awhile back, a friend shared this tweet with me and asked if it reminded me of anyone…
I’m secretly doing an investigation on how many decorative pillows I can put around the house till husband loses his shit.

If you listen to Instagram stories, almost every single person talks about their “obsessions.” They’re obsessed with a new lipstick, outfit, shoes and the list goes on and on. Well, in all honesty, I do not think it’s a real obsession unless they are hiding their crap in the back of their car, a closet or some secret compartment in an ottoman. If they are… then it just may be a real honest to goodness obsession!
Now, we are going to see if my husband actually reads this little blog because if he does the gig is up! Today I am sharing my obsession with pillows and it may be a real obsession. Husband of mine, you may want to stop reading at this point!
I feel like my love of pillows is a fairly new thing for me. It probably started a few years back at Christmas time. I mean have you seen some of the fabulous pillow designs around the holidays? I really think that is where this all began and it has since spiraled into other holidays and seasons. It is so easy to change the look of a room with a few pillows.
Let’s start with my most recent purchase. If I’m being totally honest, I order this months ago but it was on backorder and I kind of forgot about it until it showed up on my doorstep yesterday.
I debated on this one for a while but it was too cute to pass up. I order it from The Painted Fox and it makes a lovely addition to the other 50 pillows on our bed! While I was waiting for this pillow to come in (or forgot that I ordered it, however you want to look at it) I found another one that has since been moved to the chest at the end of our bed.
I was kind of hoping my husband wouldn’t notice but he did. You can’t see them all but there are actually only 9 pillows on our bed. To be fair I sleep with 2 of those 9.
Now on to my sitting room which is a little cozy nook off of our bedroom. I have two chairs and an ottoman in this room. It is where I watch all of my shows. It is a news free zone!
If you are wondering what this is, it is my hidden loot. I have four Holiday pillows stored in my ottoman. Next year, when I start to decorate for Christmas, can someone please remind me that they are in there? You know I am going to forget!
Yes, there are several pillows inside my Goodwill Credenza. This piece is great for hiding/storing extra pillows. I also have my Fall pillows stored in my closet.
Since my oldest son has graduated and moved out, I redid his room. It’s probably a little more my style now than his, hence the green decorative pillow. I will share more on his old room in the next few weeks.
This is another bedroom revamp, I added these decorative pillows to all white bedding to finish off the look. I will share this room in a few weeks as well.
I added blush pillows to the family room recently. I thought there would be some push back on the color choice. Either no one has noticed or they really do not care. I think this room transforms the most by changing out the pillows. Apparently, I am the only one…still no comment from the other members of this household. Maybe that is why I keep buying pillows…no one notices!
This pillow on my bench in the kitchen is one of my favorites and has been around for several years. I really like the texture of it. It is very reminiscent of the Magnolia line of pillows minus the cost. The pillows in my office are also similar to the Magnolia line as well. I picked them up at HomeGoods for a great price.
It’s a good dupe isn’t it?
I added a few new pillows to the sunroom and kept my favorite whale pillow. Charlie is always laying up against it.
more hidden pillows.
Until Next Time,
