Taffeta, Darling | Manolo's Basement of the Bargains

Taffeta, Darling

Now is the time of year when so many of us long to redecorate our nests. We look around us and realize that the whole house looks shabby and uninspired. We are sick of looking at the same things we’ve been looking at for years, and imagine tearing it all down and starting over from scratch.

Well, before you do too much damage to domestic tranquility (not to mention your bank account and credit rating), perhaps it would be best to consider whether adding or changing up one or two details will be just about as satisfying as a full redo.

R Lauren Adriana Tafetta Throw Pillow This charming taffeta throw pillow by Ralph Lauren, for instance, would go a long way to brightening up a sofa, chair, window seat, or day bed.  At 18″ x 18″ it makes a bold statement. The colors are rich, the Madras plaid is both classic and casual, the feel of the taffeta is delightfully cool and unexpected on a warm day…all in all, it’s a quick and effective way of making the place seem newer again.

What’s more, it’s a bargain as redecorating ideas go. It’s usually priced at $99.99, but for a limited time it’s been marked down to just $69.99.

Look at it this way, you could probably paint the room for the same price (assuming you DIY the project), but this is so much faster and easier, and you won’t wind up spattering paint on the carpet. But if you decide to paint the walls, too, then a softer shade of one of these colors would be amazingly gorgeous.
