Pillow Combinations to Liven up your Living Room

Any time of year is the perfect time to freshen up your living room by introducing a new mix of throw pillows. They are the ultimate accessory, enhancing any piece of furniture and adding personality to your space. Countless colors, patterns, and textures provide unlimited combinations for that final layer of style and comfort. Here are a few of our top designer tips.

As a general rule, an odd number of pillows is the most inviting arrangement. Pairing pillows of various sizes and shapes draws attention to the uniqueness and charm of each pillow. Typically use three pillows for loveseats, five for larger sofas, and nine for sectionals.  

When choosing the colors of your pillows, look at the surrounding hues of the room. Take inspiration from the area rug, wall color, and sofa upholstery. Choose up to three of those colors to create a cohesive look in your pillow combination. Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints in these colors to add your own unique twist!

For neutral rooms, you can opt to use multi-hued neutral pillows in the same color or small-scale patterns to add visual flair and dimension. Or add a pop of color to the room with solid color and patterned pillows. If bold patterns or colors aren’t your thing, go for texture. Leather pillows add warmth to the space, while faux-fur pillows add a modern touch. Now that you know how to create a pillow combination that will impress your guests, all that’s left is to have fun shopping!
