Freshening the Nest

This loveseat has been in my living room for over 30 years.
It looks pretty good here, but it has been bleached by the sun
and scratched by the cat.
It was time for an change.
I decided to go neutral, which was harder for me to decide 
on than something colorful.
So here you go, the new loveseat, neutral with pillows to
add color.
Well then the chairs needed freshening too.
Off with the checks and on with vintage flowers.
I found the vintage flower fabric about 15 years ago
in an antique shop in Colorado.
I thought I would make tea cozies with the fabric,
but I am loving it on the chairs.
How fun to finally see it being used on two chairs.
It may not look like the loveseat and chair goes together,
but the same creams and greys are in the texture of the loveseat.
My "live-in gardener" wasn't sure until I pointed it out.
Subtle, yes, but I love it and I love freshening the nest.
Freshening the nest is so much fun.
Do you like adding a pillow or doing
something more drastic to freshen your nest?
