Tweaking my Family Room

Last week, my husband was away on business, got back and had a crazy amount of work.  I got flowers out of the deal. He was trying to sweeten me up after being out of the house for days.  I would have to say, this is my favorite combination of colors in flowers. So bright and pretty.

A light bulb went off when I placed them in my family room.  What if I go with that color scheme for my pillows.  It would be perfect for spring and summer and my family room could use a little color. Everything is brown, grey, white, and these green pillows.
So I'm on a hunt for fabric or actual pillow covers already made.  Any suggestions?  I'm thinking an Ikat in coral, watermelon colors and then some type of geometric in the coral/watermelon family. I've been searching on Etsy but I have a really hard time mixing patterns and wondering if it really goes. There are so many choices...please help!

I think the coral/watermelon color will work great for that space and match the colors perfectly, that you already have in there.

As far as pattern I can really see the ikat pattern and maybe add in some quatrefoil patterned fabric.

I think the coral ikat will add a nice pop to your room. When mixing patterns try for different scale in patterns. I could see a fun stripe with the ikat. In my opinion, scale is the big factor, one smaller, one larger.

I love MASONMOONBEAMS for pillow covers...it is an Etsy shop....don't know it they have anything like that....made she could find fabric for you.

Go with your gut! If you stay within your colors or a theme then the pillows will all totally match! I love the idea for sprucing up the family room with some new pillows! <3 Mine are all the same right now and I'm itching to add a few oddballs into the mix for a fun pop of color!
