Throw pillows + Singapore thunderstorm…

So we had a bit of a comical situation early on Sunday morning.  We’d had some friends over for dins the night before and had totally forgotten to bring in all our cushions etc from our roof terrace before hitting the hay.  We woke up crazy early on Sunday when a huge bolt of thunder cracked right above our heads, immediately leaped out of bed and sprinted up to the terrace in our pjs to wrestle said cushions etc. back inside in the pelting tropical rain while trying to not get hit by lightning.  Not a good start to the day…

Bit of a wake up call (literally as well as figuratively) that it might be worth investing in some outdoors pillows in the future.

Anyhoo so I thought today I’d take a peek at what’s out there in terms of indoor/outdoor goodies, here’s my round up!

Slightly over of my budget but I am obsessing over that trio of Trina Turk deliciousness! But which is your fave…?

    I know exactly which clap of thunder you are referring to! It woke both Lukus and myself up as well as the baby!!!! Lately it seems that weekends have been stormy and the week gorgeous… ODD!

    Great pillow finds!!!!

    Lol, I can imagine how fast you have brought the cushions and all the stuff inside:) Your finds are very nice, my fav is the gold one on the middle’s top, kisses! xo

  3. The white and yellow prints in the top (middle) and the orange/red in the last line (also middle) are my fav. I can imagine how sporty you were while running to save your cushions, I should have done the same :))) So is there in Singapore more than summer, is there rain and thunder, can’t believe it 😀 Have a lovely weekend 😀 (we are having a long vacation, 1st of May plus Easter) so I’ll be back next Tuesday. Kisses

    Hi Elly, I hope your pillows were saved in time! Beautiful prints, they would uplift any couch or chair. I am floating towards all the pretty oranges, pinks and yellows, somehow those colours perfectly depict spring. Also like the modern striped black and white one.Thank you for taking the time to stop by! The bag you mentioned is actually real reptilian leather – yipes!

  5. The Trina Turk ones – OH MAH GAWD. They don’t do ‘outdoor’ fabrics here in the UK, do they? I never see cool fabrics like this (booo). Looks like paying shipping charges from the States is in order to get a bit of this loveliness. Yummmmm. xxx
