Adding color

I'm a regular old girl who likes to watch me some good ol'HGTV however with our fancy rabbit ears (aka antenna in our atic) we don't have that option. Thankfully Netflix has be covered!!! I've been watching it from time to time and we were hosting Easter dinner I wanted something different.
After the Easter bunny had picked out stuff for the boys mommy went shopping at home goods. I have always planned to have our very neutral pallet with adding in some green, however the pillows I found just weren't right. I found these adorable ones with buttons. They had them in red and blue, but as luck would have it the red ones were missing a button and they won't sell "damaged" items so blue it was. I was thinking 2 would be enough but then I found this one. This pattern is SUPER bold for me, but I liked it!!! So I thought I'd take them home put them on the couch see what the hubby said, and prob bring them all back a few days later.
I took them home, cleaned up the room, decorated for Easter and put the pillows on the couch. 
Very nervous, I asked the hubby. "I don't like sitting on buttons" I took that as "not bad I just will turn them around when I sit on it!!" For me that was a WIN!!!
He likes ones that serve more of a purpose then just color. Ie the current brown ones are used as a placemat, TV tray and hot pad for him eating in the family room. So my blue ones don't fit that bill, however in the last 24 hr he hasn't complained once!!!! I'm keeping them!!!

I am not good at decor and I don't use much that I have bough, normally my mother in law helps me out in that department, but I love it!!!! 
What do you think??

Don't mind the Easter eggs. The Easter bunny had come and the boys weren't hunting for eggs yet.
Old brown with the new blue!!! The blue gets turned around when hubby sits down but I'm still lovin the buttons!!!!
This chair is my baby. Chris fought me like crazy when my mother in law wanted to give it to me. I wanted it and he did not. He has come around so I added my blanket to add some more festive coloring.
