Quick tip to spruce up an old couch
Confession: We have had our couches for 12 years and I am so over them, but they have held up so well, and we don't have a good reason for replacing them, other than the fact that I am so over them. So. I am doing my best to be happy with them and all their brown-ness for now.
I was trying to think of ways to hide the fact that the bottom cushions are starting to look a bit worn. So I ordered a throw blanket in the perfect size from Amazon and laid it over the bottom cushions, and it hides those worn spots just fine. I also have lots of fun, textured pillows I've collected over time that draw the attention away from the brown couch and lighten it up.
I look for throws and pillows with:
:: interesting texture
:: different sizes
:: neutral colors that play well together
:: subtle patterns
Here are some of my favorite affordable pillows and throws that will help spruce up your space too:
