Help Choosing New Pillows (please!)

I have spent way. too. much. time. looking at pillows online.  We desperately need new pillows for our sofa & now they are all a blur in my head and I can't make a decision!  Our accent color is green, so I'd like to incorporate that color and possibly another. 

When I was sprucing up a couple of months ago, I picked up these pillows at West Elm.  The fit my green + another color criteria, but I knew in the back of my mind that they ultimately wouldn't work because they are 100% silk. I had trouble finding ones in the store that weren't snagged & figured one swipe of a Derby paw would be their demise.  Back to the store they went.

Photo by Amaris Granado - A great example of the other patterns we're working with in the room!  p.s. I plan to share more images from the photo shoot soon!

A ridiculous Etsy search led me to the following favorites.  As you can see, I have been leaning towards any and all variations of trellis, fretwork & scroll patterns.  With the rug & Derby's bed, it may be a little too much.  Which is why I need your help!

Row 1 - 1, 2, 3  Row 2 - 1, 2, 3  Row 3 - 1, 2, 3

I also love this print more than life itself, but think it may be too bright/blue/something (like the one directly above!).

I love the combination of green & blue, so I think I will stay with that color scheme.  What are your favorites?  I am open to mixing & matching and would like to make a pillow out of the Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis (see? Trellis. Again.) in navy remnant that I have in my little hands.  I also like the idea of a fun, not-so-serious graphic pillow to add contrast.

 

As you can see, I am all over the place.  Help!  Which are your favorites?  Feel free to suggest something different altogether!
