If there is one home accessory that I can not do with out, throw pillows would win my vote. I love how they add color and character to any space depending on the texture, fabric and print that you select. Any sofa can go from Scandinavian with a few Nordic printed pillows, or Asian with some Oriental fabric. If you ever find yourself growing tired of how you home looks, the quickest way to solve this is to change your throw pillows. I’m not saying own a whole room just for throw pillows, but change only the cases. Buy several pillow covers in different styles and keep the same pillow fillers.
Here is what my living room originally looks like. I had the pink and blue floral pillows made while the blue case is from H&M Home and the printed one is from Seek the Uniq.
Here is the same living room with Autumn inspired pillows from Huwaran at Tela. It gives a completely different vibe right?
If you are one of those that can’t sit still always wanting to create something new or see something different at home, then this simple styling tip will be a breeze for you can do. It can be quite addicting.. believe me! I store all my pillow covers in a plastic bin so that things are always neat and organized. When it comes to decorating with throw pillows here are a few tips to remember:
- Use a variety of pillow sizes. The biggest pillow for a sofa can be 24″ x 24″ and always put the biggest ones on the ends.
- Play with different colors and patterns that will compliment each other.
- Go for a variety of texture when it comes to fabric. Pick textures not too far off from your sofa.
- Play with different pillow shapes to add an interesting touch.
Stay tuned.. I will be coming up with another post very soon on how you can use pillows of different sizes and shapes in one sofa for a more professional designer look! Happy weekend!
