Thinking about adding a pop of color to your sofa? Don’t know where to start when selecting pillows? To some, pillow arranging can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be!
As you stroll down the pillow aisles of the home decor stores, you see all the beautiful colors and styles of pillows that you have to have! But, putting a great grouping of pillows together on a sofa can sometimes be a different story. A sofa is like a blank canvas and pillows are the pops of color, design and texture you put on it. Getting it right can sometimes be difficult!
Here are a few hints to get you started. Start with a couple of anchor pillows, a larger sized pillow for the outside of the sofa. Moving towards the center, start to select smaller sized pillows, alternating patterns and fabrics.
Pull out colors from around the room to really tie the look together. Odd numbers are more appealing, so as you work towards the center of the sofa, end with one fun decorative pillow.
Get creative! Try using a few patterns. As long as they are in the same color family, they will work.
Use pillows to make a statement! If you purchase pillow covers and down inserts you can change the pillow covers seasonally. You can store the covers neatly in a drawer and use the inserts over and over again!
To maintain the look of your pillows, give your pillows a good shake and punch in the sides to redistribute the feathers in the insert. Flat pillows look old and tired.
So the bottom line is have fun when selecting your pillows! Pillows are an inexpensive way to change the look of your sofa without breaking the bank. Change the look as your style changes, or change the look as the seasons change. Need a little more inspiration? See our custom pillow pages for a truly custom look for your sofa.
