The couch and curtains in my lounge are various shades of brown and gold. At the time I bought these, it seemed sensible and smart to buy neutral furnshings. Then one day I walked into my lounge and was depressed at how very beige and boring the room looked. I ended up going to Etsy to search for something unique to add. And my cushion covers are certainly not beige. They're not to everyone's taste I know, but I have always been a fan of Frida Kahlo - of both her art and her person. She had such strength through so much pain.
