A few simple suggestions to create a spot on look with your throw pillows.

  1. Use an odd number of pillows to keep it less uniform and more laid back. Simple as that.
  2. Switch up your shapes. Mix horizontals with verticals, and squares, etc.
  3. Mix patterns. Display stripes with floral or geometrics with solid colors.

Keep these 3 simple rules and you’re good as gold.

If you’re trying to pull off a more minimalist look, less is more. But if your focus is to create an eclectic look, you’re going to go for a more statement look. In that case, the more pillows the better. However you choose to style your sofa with throw pillows, have fun and think outside of the box!
