Granny Chic: Pink and Teal Afghan

I mentioned in February’s sponsor shout out post that I was totally digging the teal and pink afghan Brandi had for sale. Well luckily she and I are personal friends and she said it could live at my house for a little bit while I decide whether it’s right for me.

I am really liking the colors and the granny-tastic vibe, but I worry that combined with the rug it’s kind of a lot of geometric pattern.

Maybe I need a floral bolster pillow to mix things up. Or just a solid-colored blanket across the back of the sofa. I could diy one, perhaps, with a few yards of flannel. I just need

covering the back of this sofa because it’s a favorite perch for dogs and cats alike and I am so over squeezing the slipcover back onto those cushions after washing. I’m kind of digging the granny squares but I’m just not sure. What do y’all think?

    I love the quilt; but, no, I don’t really think it meshes well with the rug. I like the idea of a solid color.

  2. I agree with the no, not working with the rug. It is really pretty, is there anywhere else it could go?

  3. I think it needs a solid, or a tiny pattern that looks solid from a short distance

  4. I agree it’s too much geometric pattern. Maybe it could live on an easy chair or rocker in Jack’s room or your bedroom?
    You are such an inspiration. I used to have zero interest in interior decorating but now I realize it’s because I didn’t have a DIY goddess to inspire me! This spring and summer after my conference trip season is over, I’m planning some things and will be asking your advice!

  5. I have to agree…I think you need some more texture and less pattern. I’m happy my afghan has helped though! Let me know if you find another place in your home for it.
