By now I’m sure you’ve all noticed I’m a fool for a cute pillow. When I packed up my college dorm room I may or may not have had an entire car trunk full of pillows…. ok I did! If you caught my post about my new job you know that I rewarded myself with a set of gorgeous new pillows that I’ve had my eyes on for quite some time. I know, I shouldn’t have!
Well they’re unpacked and on the couch… I LOVE them! They might be my favorite thing in the room (OK that’s probably just the excitement talking, maybe top 10?). Either way, they’re fabulous… take a peek!
I know fabulous! Since I’m a girl who loves pillows I definitely over-stuff the couch with them. Fortunately the hubby doesn’t mind and they come in handy when I want to cuddle up to watch a movie. The two large printed couch pillows in the back (cream and grey with the floral print) are reversible with grey on the back so they may get turned around if it’s too much pattern, but since I’m still trying to decide they’ll live face up for a while… and then face down. Then we’ll decide!
When deciding on couch pillows there are so many figuration that work. Three pillows, lumbar, no pillows… really it’s up to you but start with your large pillows on the outside and then work your way in with the smaller pillows. Even if you have fewer pillows than I do (which, let’s face it, is everyone 😉 ) this will work. Of course you want to mix and match patterns, try a combination of solid color, big graphic prints (like the stripes) and smaller, busier patterns (like the paisley or the owl). Then if you have a cute pillow with text or an image throw that in front! I’m a big fan of texture so even if my pillows are a solid color I try to pick one with texture like the ruffly yellow pillows on my couch and chair, or the blue pillow on my gossip bench.
Whatever you choose let it be something you love, you can never go wrong with passion!
