about a year and a half ago, i bought an orange, tan and black throw rug at ikea (the no longer available jyllinge rug).
it was on sale for $3.99, and at the time i had NO idea what i was going to do with it...i just knew i LOVED the colors and i HAD to have it.
seat, i decided that i would use the rug to have some new cushions made for the top of the window seat.
here is the result!
as you can see, i rehung his old curtains, and added a few pillows.
(the one on the right is made from thom filicia's lawrence fabric in taupe)
the wood stool is from home goods.
the wall color is benjamin moore's blue springs 1592.
the fabric for the curtains was purchased on clearance for $1 a yard at walmart. (yes, walmart!)
the brown herringbone fabric on the larger pillow is by ralph lauren, which i purchased on ebay.
the banded leather and cowhide pillow was purchased at joss and main.
the rug wasn't quite big enough to have all two 36" cushions made, so i opted to cover the bottom of the cushions with a faux leather, purchased at my local joanns.
i really love the way the cushions turned out!
there are still quite a few projects left to do in his room, and i have yet to hang anything on the wall, but i am hoping to have his room totally finished in the next two weeks.
notice that i said "hoping"....
