Throw Pillow Love

Does anyone else obsess over finding the perfect throw pillows? I have spent months looking for throw pillows for our couch. I even bought some and haven't loved and sent them back. 

But I think I have found a fun combination for our living room couch.  

These were ordered from Joss & Main today! They were sold as a pair. Can't wait until they come!

 This pillow I found at Home Goods a few weeks back. Well not this exact pillow, but a similar one with this pattern. This particular pillow can be found on Etsy.

And this one is from West Elm. This was the most expensive on for $34.00 - and free shipping!
I know I will love the West Elm and Joss and Main pillows together, but I'm not sure about my Home Good fine. I will post a picture next week when everything is here and you can let me know if they work together.

Have a great weekend!

Dark Wood or Sleek White Wood

In the near future will be making over our half bath. It's a small space so I'm hoping to add a big wow factor. We already picked out and purchased the floor tile.

The tile is a marble hexagon from Tile City. We loved the hexagon shape and the light variations of greens, blues and grays in the tile. 

Here is a good photo of a already finished bathroom with the same tile.

Now the big issue and what is stalling us is a) - finding a vanity we can afford (wow why are vanities so expensive) and b) - should we use a white vanity or a vanity with a dark stain?

 We are loving this vanity from Pottery Barn (above) but sadly it WAY out of our price range. But we did find an interesting DIY tutorial at Knock of Decor. Not sure if we are that brave!

Also loving this vanity from Overstock. I love the big white sink and dark wood. I think we would need a vanity with more storage, but I'm digging the white against the dark stain. 

What are you thoughts? What type of vanity would look best with our new tile? Any tips where I can get a cheap nice vanity or a anyone know a good Carpenter in Pittsburgh, PA that can build me the knock off Pottery Barn Vanity? 

P.S. Please forgive me, some links are not working and I can't seem to figure out why. But all sources are listed!
