Spring is here and with the change in season, often comes a change in home decor. We are the first to admit that suggesting a “refresh” with a changeup of decorative pillows and coastal area rugs to breathe new life into a winter-worn space is a must. While it’s true that new colors, fabrics, and textures can absolutely brighten up a room, sometimes that’s easier said than done! There are literally thousands of choices at your fingertips, but how to know which are right for your space? Let us guide you, and while we’re at it, we’d like to highlight a few Cottage & Bungalow top picks to make your process even easier.
Tips for Choosing Decorative Pillows
Stick with One Color Palette
This is easy to do with a neutral base. Choose a cohesive color palette and group decorative pillows of the same shade, or complimentary shade together. For that coastal feel, you may consider blues & greens, pinks & purples, or oranges & yellows.
The Formula for Prints
It can be easy to go a tad overboard when you find a variety of patterns you love. However, you don’t want to overwhelm the eye. Our advice is one large print, one small print and one solid.
Stay Symmetrical (or Not!)
For a polished more traditional look, keep your pillow arrangement symmetrical and with an even number, with your larger decorative pillows on the outside and the smaller pillows on the inside. For a more modern look, opt for an odd-number of pillows.
To bring depth and dimension, play with mixing not only colors and patterns, but also textures. A lush faux fur next to a smooth, clean silky pillow can be playful and fun.
