It’s time for another fast tip to decorating your home! If you missed last week’s tip, check it out here. Each tip is meant to be finished in just an hour or two, so you can take a little time each week to complete the weekly tip and your home will soon be more thoughtfully styled. Now, we know how obsessed I am with pillows and textiles, so naturally, this week’s tip is all about throw pillows. Swapping out or rearranging pillows is a super quick way to change up the look in your home. If you don’t have any pillows in your home…well, we need to change that! They make your home feel cozy and comfortable, and it’s a great way to add pops of color and pattern. The number of pillows needed for a space varies depending on the size of the sofa, chair, or bed and, of course, your preference. I stuck with the rule of three for this post, but do what feels right. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colors and steal pillows from other rooms in your house. When pairing pillows with patterns, look at the scale. You want to mix a larger scaled pattern with a smaller scale pattern and a solid color.
Now start arranging your pillows and share your result!
Another suggestion if you are buying inserts for pillow covers, is buy your inserts 1 or 2 inches larger than the pillow cover. This creates the plump and full pillows you see in magazines :)
Tomorrow I’m sharing all the details about the One Room Challenge I’m participating in so come back and find out what room I’m redecorating and the inspiration behind it.
