Once again, Ye Olde Craigslist has turned up unique treasure! Look at these striped velvet bolsters from Istanbul (or is it Constantinople?). The ends are antique fez caps!

Bolster alongside my wool Aubusson pillow to show colors.
I am keeping the red ones and I dunno what I am going to do with the green ones. They are so interesting, no?
I decided they would look perfect with my newly painted fauteuils (foe-TURS). What do you think? The velvet leopard print is reflecting the light in such a way that it looks stripey...it isn't. *Edit* I hated them together after all. I am so capricious!

Where would you like to go, little pillows from a faraway place?
Back to neutral-ish...
Boy this room is orange! All that hideous builder's oak just mocking me! It turns out that the rugs require more than two people to drag them in from the garage. *sigh* I really want to cover those floors.
Thank you so much for your input on the guest room bed! I am sticking with #4
You cannot beat the price at $100! It is being delivered on Thursday!
I may buy one of the other beds for Gracie's room. I have the perfect corona to drape toile fabric from!
