How do you group throw pillows together?
Try creating groupings of two or three pillows each for couch or sectional pillow sets. For a couch, put one grouping at each end. For a sectional, put an additional grouping in the corner.
How do you mix and match pillow patterns?
Secondly, I like to choose a color palette and follow the formula solid + stripe + floral. If you do not like florals, try a geometric pattern or textured pillow. Mixing small and large patterns will prevent the patterns from competing. For example, think of one pattern as the star of the show, and the others as supporting actors.
How do you make throw pillow sets look good?
The key to making your throw pillows look fluffy and getting that “karate chop” designer look is to use feather down pillow inserts. I like these for 20″ pillow covers and these for all different sizes. In addition, for extra fluffy pillows size up when ordering inserts!
How many throw pillows should be on a couch?
This will depend on the look you are trying to achieve. Try symmetrical pillows (one or two per side of the couch) for a more traditional look. On the other hand, try a variety of different pillows (up to three per side, with the largest in the back) for a more cozy and lived in look.
How many pillows should be on a sectional?
For a sectional pillow set, I like to style three groupings: one on each end, and one in the corner of the sectional. Try six pillows total for a small sectional, and nine pillows total for a large sectional.
How many pillows should be on a full or queen bed?
Three or five pillows work for a queen bed pillow set. Try styling two large decorative pillows (24″ or 26″) at the back. Finish the look one of two ways: with one smaller pillow in the front (20″ or 22″) or with two smaller pillows and a lumbar at the front.
How many pillows should be on a king bed?
Five or six pillows work for a king bed pillow combination. Typically it is best to start with three large decorative pillows (24″ or 26″) at the back. Finish the look with either two smaller pillows (20″ or 22″) or with two smaller pillows and a long lumbar.
