Obsessed with / More Pillows

I’m mildly obsessed with throw pillows. Mildly. I have a cart full of them on CB2’s website, and may have one on the way to me from Anthropologie. It’s honest to goodness the easiest way to change up the look of a room, and right now I’m craving monochrome, monochrome, monochrome. Here are some of the ones in my cart(s)…
