Pillow Talk

How many home bloggers do you think make a post about pillows and call it pillow talk? I thought about calling it Kilim All, but found that maybe a little too morbid, and Metallica would probably find some way to come after me for royalties.

Anyways, back to the topic at hand. So a few months back, Andy and I got a new sofa (I don't think I ever really blogged about it, but one day the ugly one was gone and a sexy one was in it's place, due to the ugly one just collapsing onto itself). The sexy one has these great clean lines, which look amazing but are not conducive to couch napping, which kind of blows.


So we were checking out this new place down the street called Humboldt House and spotted these kilim-patterned babies. They were $25 a piece, and the most comfortable things ever. It was totally worth it to now have a cushy couch to lay on. 

The store itself its beautiful, and I wanted literally every last thing in there. The selection of affordable, gorgeous textiles slaaaayed me, I cannot wait until a new rug is in my budget. 


Located at 1045 N. California, it's definitely worth stopping by if you are in Chicago. It was kind of nice to have a vintage shop that was spot on with my taste but I could also afford, since most of the curated vintage shops are waaay out of my practically nonexistent budget. 

Now all I need is a sexy rug to match.

Someone is appreciating their nap-ableness levels.

  7. Do they have zippers? When they need to be cleaned (and they will) you will be glad you took them to a seamstress (or even your dry-cleaner) and have zippers put in. It's cheap. Just saying.

  9. Humboldt House: I need to go there. And you are totally right about the typical curated vintage markup... I spend enough time on the internet that at a certain price point it just makes more sense for me to do the "curating" myself.
