Monochromatic Plan- Again

You probably thought we were done with this little pillow, but no! Let's tackle this monochromatic thing from the other direction and focus on the sage green background of our little bolster.

Funny enough, I'm finishing up a green bedroom where this pillow would fit beautifully (that wasn't planned- I swear!). Wish I could show you the finished photos, but we're still waiting for the custom duvet. You'll be the first to know when it's all ready. 'Til then, here's the plan:

Here's a sneak peek at the progress...

Bad photos (sorry!), but you'll notice that most of the accessories are green or white. The headboard fills a tight awkward space make the room feel more spacious. The fabric draped over the pillows is for the duvet. Can't wait to get it back from the seamstress!
