I'm currently in the process of revamping the throw pillows on our couch. And by currently I mean for the last six months... who knew something SO seemingly simple could actually be SO freaking difficult?! Are you with me on this? From size and scale to colors and patterns, putting together a pillow puzzle can be a real pain in the booty. Thankfully, we've got designer friends like Lindye Galloway and team who know how to turn the pillow panic into perfection, with these three simple little secrets. Take note if you're in your own 'current' pillow crisis.
Mix and Match
Whether on a bed or sofa, we like to add multiple pillows with different textures and patterns. The secret is to stay in the same color family to keep a clean yet stylish look. We often have clients that aren't sure how to perfectly mix and match for that styled look so we created our own line that is a fool proof one-stop shop for perfect pillow combinations! To find that perfect mix and match made in heaven, visit here! We curated these looks for that California coastal modern style with some of our favorite textiles.
Steps in Styling
If you are going for a more casual look, you can use a small handful of pillows. And for a more formal look, the more the merrier! We like to pair square pillows with lumbars to create some pretty layers and dimension. Last, but definitely not least, do not forget to do a lil karate chop to create a divot on top which creates a more styled a tailored look!
The fun thing about design is mixing new with old patterns and don't be afraid to play with texture and patterns to mix it up! Keep these tips in mind, but sprinkle in your own creativity to create your own perfectly accented space!
