How to choose the right accent pillows!

Pillows are one of my favorite pieces to choose in a room. They are what brings the whole design together and gives it personality. You can have a lot of fun with mixing and matching vs having them all the same. It is important when layering different pillows together to change up the textures, variety of scales and patterns.

If you like to change around your décor often, one of the easiest ways to do it is by switching out the pillows. Whether you like to change them seasonally (summer look, winter look) by trend or by color scheme. It’s a quick and inexpensive way to freshen up the space. .

When selecting your pillows you want to keep consistent with the theme you have for your home. They can all be different from room to room but you should be trying to follow similar color schemes or feelings.

Tips for the # of pillows &  size suggestions for your furniture:

Sectional: x3 22”, x 3 20” and x 1 16” x 24” = 7   2(left), 2 (right) 3(middle)

Sofa:  Sizes:  22” or 20” sq. layered in with 13”x20” or 16” x 24”

3 pillows, odd numbers= more modern

4 pillows – even numbers = more traditional, 2 per side

Chair: 1 13”x 20” or 16” x 24”
