chevron throw pillows

While I love throw pillows, I have a few struggles with them.  
1.  It's hard to choose what color/pattern to put with our brown leather couches.
2.  I love to change pillows often, so where in the world do I store tons of unused throw pillows?  

While shopping one day, I saw some black and white chevron pillow covers.  (If you aren't a fan of chevron, I'm sorry.  I still am a fan and probably will be forever.) I thought they would go with my wall decor well, but was worried about what they would look like on my couch.  


I bought the covers anyway.  I am pretty happy with how it all looks together.  
I like the mix of patterns and textures on the brown leather.  


I used my favorite trick for pillow inserts (see this post).
I bought some inexpensive decorative pillows at Ross (2 for $13.99).  
I took off the original covers and I then had inserts for a steal of a price.  


The pillow covers are from Hobby Lobby. 
 $7.99 and then used my 40% off coupon on top of it!  Woo hoo!




Less than $15 for 2 new pillows!  When I decide to change these out, I only have to put on a new cover.  The covers will be much easier to store than the entire pillow!


Of course, these will only last a few more weeks until I decide to add some new colors when I redecorate for Spring.  Oh well!  :)
