Two Red Sofas!

I’ve had two red sofas for 5 years and I love them!


The before photos were taken at Christmas! lol


I found the perfect pillows for them....5 years ago! lol


So for a ‘new look’ I ordered these from Kohl’s!

The prices were GREAT AND I got FREE shipping! I was very pleased with the quality! They are indoor/outdoor so they are very sturdy ‘canvas like’ fabric! I think the colors look better than the website shows, too!

If you go to Maya’s post at Completely Coastal...HERE


you will see what inspired me to get new throw pillows!


So what do you think?


I LOVE them!


And I saved the best for last...


the Flamingo in the lanai!


Thanks Maya!

Great sofas and the pillows are terrific. It does perk everything right up...good thing all it took was a change of pillows...sofas are not so easy to replace.

Donnie said...

Loved the pillows and that flamingo is right up my alley. What a difference a few pillows make to show off your lovely red couches.

Oh they are so really are great accents to the red couches. Funny, but I grew up with my Mother's big red sectional with two chairs that matches. They were in the Parlor so we kids were not allowed to sit on them. Brought back some memories...thanks

Completely Coastal said...

Perfect my dear!!!! As you already know, I love the pillows. And the red in them reflects the red of your couch..., so it's a great great match!! Big difference! You've got many more coastal pillows than I have, haha. Am looking forward to show this in my weekend Coastal Mix!

Hi there,
I just love a touch of red in a home. The red couches are very nice and look super comfy! The pillows are a lovely touch and bring your love of the ocean into the area. I love getting new bedding and pillows for my home. It is a nice way to "change it up" and give it all a new look. I LOVE your flamingo pillow! Too cute... and perfect on the lanai. Enjoy your new look! xoox Kim

I love RED! Your sofas are fabulous and your new pillows are wonderful. Isn't it amazing what a difference pillows can make to a whole room?

I peeked back and saw your bed linens, they are very similar to mine. As much as I love the beach, I always want to sleep in flowers. I have pillowcases that my mother embroidered for me many years ago. I love vintage linens and although I always look when I go to the thrift stores, I've never found anything in Florida as lovely as those you scored. You have a real knack for thrifting!

Thanks for all your sweet comments on my driftshells, I just love making them, it's a real labor of love, PLUS, now I HAVE to go shelling!

The red sofas are FAB-U-LOUS and your pillows are adorable ~ I can't believe that you found a flamingo ;-) (ofcourse I am from Ontario - nothing like that here)

Very Pretty! Pillows are such a great way to change a look! It can make a dramatic difference.

Hi Diane,

Your lounge is lovely with the red sofas and your new cushions.
We had red sofas, which I really loved too, but replaced them with leather.

Have a happy week

There is something wonderful about a red sofa. I was looking through a catalog the other day and my co worker and I were oohing and ahhing over a red slipcovered sofa, they make such a statement. What fun Beachy pillows too! Great job, thanks for taking a peek at my fun project this week, xoxo tami

I love pillows, and your new ones are wonderful. I am adoring that flamingo one. Wow us Wednesday, I have never heard of that party. I must have a peek, thanks for the link.

I was in a shop the other day and they had the sweetest dolls. I thought of you.

Have a lovely evening.

Absolutely perfect for the beach area...and a prettier Flamingo I have never seen! Your red sofa's are wonderful! HOW I would love to have red sofa's...perhaps one day.
I finally posted on my new doll. I hope you like her. She is different but I really things she is special. If you don't like her, don't tell me, ok? LOL
I know she won't be everyone's idea of a pretty doll.

I LOVE that room where your sofa's are...your home is just beautiful. The location is amazing!!
Love and hugs,

Your new pillows are perfect for your Florida home!
I love how changing pillows can change a room. [I'm planning to make some pillows from the antique indigo fabrics when they come!]

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

They are all wonderful pillows, Diane! They are perfect for Spring and Summer and perfect for Florida with the pretty seaside theme and the fun flamingo!

Thanks so much for your congratulations! We are thrilled!
