What style of throw pillow works best for my home?

Your bed or couch pillows should not only provide a pop of color or interest, but also meld with the overall style of your home. Think about the style you already have in place, then draw inspiration from it. Don’t forget to look at the textiles already present in your home, too. You can choose to complement them or contrast with them with your new set of couch pillows.

How do I style my throw pillows?

Start your decorating plan by deciding whether you prefer a more traditional or modern look. Once you’ve added your pillows, take a seat. If you end up moving them around to find room to sit, you probably have too many.

• Traditional: Aim for an even number of pillows on your bed or sofa, such as 2 or 4. You want to maintain symmetry, so make sure the pillows on either side have a matching companion on the opposite side. For contrast, you can use throw pillows of varying sizes or shapes. Keep fabrics and trims to traditional selections such as velvet, silk, paisleys, florals and solids, plus fringe, braid or cord trim.
• Modern: Modern aesthetics call for an odd number of pillows, such as 3 or 5. Try to stick with larger pillows so your sofa or bed doesn’t look cluttered, and mix large squares with oblong decorative pillows. Aim for large geometric prints and solids, all on smooth fabrics like cotton or linen. If you crave a nice mix of colors, pull them from artwork that’s in the room to maintain a cohesive look.
