Pillow Talk: Part One

The husband and I are in the process of sprucing up our monochromatic living room. We have ecru-colored walls {we live in an apartment and don't plan on painting}, an oatmeal-colored sofa and chair, and a creamy beige rug. We'd like to use throw pillows to inject a little color {stay tuned for Part Two), but first, we'd like to add my favorite color to the mix. So, are are going to add cushion covers to the pillows we currently have. Here is what our sofa looks like {just to give you an idea of the color/shape}:

We have 2 large {24"} suede/linen pillows from West Elm by each arm of the sofa:

I like brown, but I love gray, so I would like to purchase gray pillow covers for them. IKEA has these to offer:


Unfortunately, the "felicia" cover is only 20" and the "sanela" cover is 26". Any ideas on how to make either size fit our 24" pillows? If not, feel free to share where we can find some 24" gray pillow covers.


Speaking of pillows, be sure to stop by the DIY showoff for your chance to win up to $80 at CSN Stores! If I win, I am definitely going to buy the pillow I've been dreaming of for the past 4 months:

That's my dream pillow, too! I can't decide which color I love the most for the chevron -- I want them all.

Your dream pillow would look great beside the gray pillows you want too. If you don't win, I saw a very similar chevron pillow on Target's site for only $25. That might be a good option too.
