Decorative pillows are the easiest way to refresh your bed room or living room.
Use a specific color in the pillow to tie it back to your bedding for a coordinated look, or use the pillows to anchor the bed in the room by bringing the wall color onto the bed’s pillowscape. Either approach will make the bed the center of attention.
Stacking or propping up decorative pillows into the mix of sleeping pillows on the bed adds depth and visual interest. There is no wrong approach. Pillows can be added in even numbers, or odd. Layer them on with smaller sized pillows toward the front.
The same color principles apply when accenting a living room sofa. Pillows will help to make upholstered pieces a part of the room, reflect your personal style, and can easily change seasonally. There are a few logical rules that will help you select the right quantities.
Think of pillows symmetrically, where each side of the sofa should be balanced with a complimentary number of pillows.
Sectional sofas are trending. They have their own special 7 pillow approach.
Think 2 – 3 – 2…
Have fun, and pile your pillows on!
