Well, when my duvet cover and two euro shams arrived I wasn't digging the two pillows and realized that it was because of the horizontal stripes on the duvet. They were visually making the bed seem wider, therefore making the pillows look smaller.
So, I went back to the West Elm website to look into getting another sham. When I bought the first two shams they were on sale for $12.99 but now they were $19.99. They were still on sale from the original $24.99 price, but with tax and shipping I was looking at $28 just for the sham, and I was still going to have to purchase a pillow insert. I was not happy about that, so I thought I would just wait it out and hope that someday they would go back to the $12.99 price. I had been checking for a couple weeks when I realized I should try my local Downeast Home. For those of you who don't know what Downeast Home is (it is a Idaho and Utah thing) they are kind of like a home outlet store. They sell either showroom floor items or slightly damaged items from stores like Pottery Barn, West Elm, Restoration Hardware, and such. You can find some pretty great deals there. I bought my Pottery Barn Wingback Seagrass Chair there for $125 where it normally sells for $499!! Anyway, so to finish my story, I went to Downeast Home thinking that finding a West Elm Parachute Euro Sham in Feather Gray would probably be a long shot, but lo and behold there it was!! The price was normally $11.99 but it was on sale for $6!! BUT when I went to purchase it, I found out that all their clearance was an additional 20% off!! So total with tax it as $5.08!!! That is amazing compared to the $28 I would have spent getting it from West Elm. I then found a pillow insert at a local fabric store for $14.99. I am so thrilled with my find!! So finally, after my long story, this is how it looks,
We had some crazy wind here in Idaho yesterday! It knocked down an entire tree in the park down the street from us, and it obliterated the shutters on the side of our house. They were in pieces all over our driveway and street. I'll have to take some pics.
