……that’s right, PILLOWS!

These cute, cozy household must-haves are a great way to create that living room environment you’re looking for!  See below for no-fail tips on how to choose pillows and find that perfect arrangement:

  1. Don’t overdo it! There shouldn’t be anymore than three pillows to a cushion. Too many can appear overwhelming and will not allow for enough space for your guests to sit comfortably.
  2. Multiple sizes draw one’s eyes to your couch.  Choosing sizes larger than the 18″ x 18″ standard pillow as well as small rectangular pillows adds diversity.
  3. Mixing up the prints is another fun way to style your couch.  For every two pillows with texture or pattern, add a solid pillow into the mix!
  4. Pillow location makes a difference!  The best way to start is on the outside and work your way in.  Note: your pillows don’t always have to be symmetrical. I find that I like the random sizes and number of pillows rather than same size, same number.
