So, I was traveling for a full week last week. On a whirlwind schedule for 6 days straight. Mainly was moving about for work but had the good fortune to have a little personal time too. I was so happy to get to see so many of my dear friends over the visit. I stopped in New York City twice, visited Westchester County in New York (had never been there) and then I went to Chicago. For nearly 7 days I stayed in a different bed. On one of my non-work nights, I stayed with best of friend AM at her Soho apartment and was so happy to see her and her family. In addition to AM and her hubby JE and their kids, I got to see dear friends A.Ro., CJ, WH and designer/blogger friend Nicole Gibbons. I managed to make it to a NYC party and caught up with some people I hadn’t seen in years and I went to a chess tournament. I went to a work conference (for my day job) for two days where my team of executives won a team building challenge. I even got a chance to stop at a trade show to see some of my COCOCOZY throws on display. Then I jetted off to Chicago where I spent one night at the Four Seasons there and spent 5 hours standing outside in 16 degree weather (some day I’ll tell you why). A fun fulfilling week but imagine how happy I was to land in sunny Los Angeles on Friday late afternoon and to be picked up by my car service and whisked home to my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills.
Home sweet home!
A few weeks ago, I was playing around with our COCOCOZY black and white pillow collection at my little house that is nestled in the hills. I took a few styles from the collection and tried them in my bedroom and then on my sofa. I love mixing and matching prints from this collection. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns on pillows or fabrics that are in the same color family when planning your home decor. A mix of patterns add for a lively visual mix without injecting too many different colors. I wish my sofa didn’t have the chocolate brown contrast welt piping then I think the black and white would really work in the living room. For now, I think I will stick to the black and white pillows in my all white bedroom.
The nice thing about having your own pillow collection is that you can change out your decor any time!
My favorite pillow from this collection is this one. Through tomorrow, we will give you 20% off at check out on my fave pillow at check out if you type in promo code COCOBW!
P.S. Each day, I am trying to remember things to be thankful for. Today, in light of this post and the picture of me and Mr. Boo here, I am just happy that he is older now and doesn’t eat (destroy) all the pillows on my sofa or bed every time I leave the house! Mr. Boo is a small one but in his younger days was big trouble as he had regular field day with chewing holes in sofas, rugs, pillows, expensive shoes, throws, socks and much more! Don’t let his flopping ears and innoncent eyes fool you.
