Pillows are fun and interchangeable with the seasons—not to mention perfect for midday naps. When you want your decor to sing spring but don’t want to commit to a full home makeover, incorporate these pillow secrets from the pros.
- Take cues from the color palette of the room. Try picking a shade from a favorite piece of art in your space. Consider bold hues that don’t feel out of place.
- Add visual dimension. Select pillows in a variety of shapes and sizes. Mix up your standard 18-by-18 squares with oblong pillows, round pillows, and bolsters to add levels of depth.
- Fluff the numbers. Do you prefer two pillows on either side of the sofa? Or do you prefer one pillow in the center and two on each arm? When it comes to even or odd numbers, do what feels right to you.
- Have fun. There’s no need to stick to something simple. Since pillows are so versatile from season to season, feel free to take chances. Mix and match solids, patterns, silks, linens, and beyond.
