You know we are a bit pillow crazy here at Cottage & Bungalow so when we came across interior designer Phoebe Howard’s tips for arranging pillows on your sofa we knew we had to share. Nothing will transform a room quicker than changing out the pillows or adding some more into the decorating mix.
1. Mix & Match Fabrics:Sofa upholstery and pillow fabrics should never be the same. Limit patterned fabrics to one set of pillows per sofa. Layer colors, vary prints with solids, and mix textures for the most interest.
2. Start from the Outside: Select a matching pair of pillows that are either 24 or 22 inches square to place on the far right and left. Work your way to the center with a set of slightly smaller square pillows.
3. Throw in an Odd Shape: To keep the look from feeling too symmetrical, include a smaller, rectangular pillow made from a third fabric that’s different but coordinates.
4. Fill & Fluff Them Right: Down fillers are always preferable to polyester inserts. They are more comfortable and better looking. If allergies are a problem, try high-quality, hypoallergenic down. And please, don’t karate-chop the tops!
