How to Style Pillows for Your Space


The easiest way to add a breath of new life in your room is simply by adding/switching out throw pillows. Pillows with new fabrics and color can give your room a totally different feel and they are a perfect way to add personality to your room's decor. Pillows offer the ultimate flexibility. Changing a pillow cover from aqua to red is much easier and cheaper than purchasing new furniture or art. Just store the pillows you aren’t using in a linen closet. You can never have too many pillows! 
Allow us to introduce you to the power of the pillow and discover ways to bring a pop of color into your home with beautiful throw pillows.
First, there are a few principals you should always keep in mind:
1. Choose your color palette. This will serve as a guideline and ensure that you will have a beautiful cohesive space. When figuring out colors, pay attention to your use of color in everyday life. The key to styling with color is to go with a single palette, then pick a good variety of textures and patterns within that palette. Be sure to mix in with some neutrals to keep the look feeling light. You’re going to get the most impact if all of your pillows are either in the same shade or in a pair of complimentary shades.

2. Keep it symmetrical. When you’re layering several different fabrics on top of each other, things can get really busy, really fast. We like a symmetrical arrangement because it keeps things feeling orderly and polished.

3. A variety of sizes. Use different sizes and shapes of pillows to create a layered look. This gives each pillow some room to show itself off. Tall in the back, short in the front. Visually, your largest pillows should be in the far corners, and your smaller pillow should be on the inside.

Now that you know what to do you should be golden. Create exactly the look you want with your pillows. Whether you’re adding just a couple or ten, select pillows that fit your taste. Pillows are the best accessory for adding comfort and style. The final result will be unique, memorable and a great reflection of your décor personality. Time to pick out your pillows! Enjoy and have some fun decorating your new space.
