Pillow Party

The easiest way to refresh a sofa, bed or chair?  Beautiful throw pillows!  They can completely transform a space and bring a room to life. Throw pillows will bring the personality, the vibe and style to a room by adding a pop of color, pattern or texture.   They are such an important element in home design. Choosing throw pillows is one of my favorite tasks when I am designing a home.

You can add dimension and warmth to your sofa by layering your pillows.  You want to create a look that is balanced, so consider the colors and sizes you use. Alternating pillows with texture and pattern keep the look interesting and inviting. Make sure that you don’t do too many large prints, as that can be overwhelming to the eye.  However, a space with no patterned pillows at all can end up looking a bit flat and unfinished.

You can add a bit of whimsy by choosing throw pillows that have interesting details and trims.  Fun options include fringe, tassels, or even organic beads  like the pillow in the image below.

I love using a combination of patterned and solid pillows on a sofa, and I like to pair the pillows with a comfy throw blanket.  This is a great way to warm up a space and add comfort and style.

The fill or stuffing of a pillow insert is important.  You can choose feather/down, poly or a down alternative.  This is a personal preference, as some people prefer a more structured pillow, while others prefer soft and plush options. I like to use a blend for the filling, which allows them to have great shape but still be plumped up.

There is nothing like cozying up on the sofa with a soft throw, some plush pillows and a glass of vino after a long day at work.  Who is with me?
