Style Sunday: Comfy Cushions and Pretty Pillows

I've been in my apartment for two years this Labor Day weekend and it's still a work in progress. In celebration, I bought a couple of things for both the indoors and outdoors with my last paycheck.

I purchased a pair of red round outdoor dining cushions for my bistro set on my balcony.

Each one cost as much as each antique chair did, but I'm pleased with them and hope they make my guests more comfortable. The UPS guy delivered the package right to me among the crowd at my community's annual block party on Friday. I still need to paint the chairs brownish or soft black. Maybe that'll be a project for next weekend. I am thrilled to have Sunday-Monday weekends now! This is what they look like today...

I'd love to add an outdoor rug too. This one has been on my wishlist for a year and a half now...

Maybe the one in chocolate?

When my balcony is finished, I will post more artfully-arranged pictures. And hopefully I can enjoy it all autumn long or until I move.

I also picked up two throw pillows for my sofa. A pleated chocolate brown one with some silver stitching came from my favorite store HomeGoods. And this one is from Pier 1...

I declare this my Winthrop pillow as it is my alma mater's colors-garnet and gold.
I am very impressed with its quality.
I love the refined quatrefoils!

Going for a modern look, I want to curate a mixed collection of pillows. Here are the others...

The two on the left are from HomeGoods and the one on the right is from Target.

I may need another one to complete the look...
