Now that you have seen Melrose's den, don't you think this collection of 4 plates would be perfect to display on the wall and accompany some of the coastal items? I am thinking next to the mantel above the La-Z-Boy (yes, we have a La-Z-Boy). I especially love the knot set.
I all ready have 2 Thomas Paul pillows on the couch - the oblong whale pillow and a square anchor pillow. They aren't the best pillows to lay your head on, but they get the job done. Who knew burlap was not soft to the skin? ;) I got them on sale at Anthro! Check their sale rooms frequently - they are often hiding some exciting items.
