The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Apartment
Something a little different for Interior Looks- the first post using a room in a TV show. And what could be better than Marshall and Lily’s apartment in How I Met Your Mother? If you watch the show, you’ll know that this is their first home together with Ted, following graduation when they all moved to New York- so it makes me think of how decoration is usually odds and ends picked up cheaply or free when furnishing your first house out of necessity rather than because of aesthetics.

The yellow, white and brown/red grid cushion reminds me of crocheted cushions like these. You could make something that looks similar choosing a dark red/brown wool for the centre, yellow for the next three rows, and white for the outer edge.
