1. Styling Pillows in the bedroom vs living room
When it comes to styling the bed, choose two or three pillow sizes to layer. Create some height by using larger pillows in the back (size 24x24 or 22x22), then size down from there. Adding a lumbar or bolster is sort of the cherry on top of your bed sundae.
When it comes to your living room, don't forget that sofas are made for sitting and too many pillows can make you and your guests feel uncomfortable. While we all have different design preferences, comfort is typically top-of-mind for many of us, so start with two to three in the corners and go from there!
2. Layering with Different Pillow Sizes
Mixing and matching different sized pillows creates both a relaxed and a curated feel. It creates dimension and interest on an otherwise blank canvas. Pair small, medium and large pillows together; a combination of size 22x22, 20x20s and a bolster is a great place to start.
3. Mixing & Matching Colours & Patterns
Start with one or two prints you absolutely love and then layer in neutrals and colours that complement the others. There's no need to overcomplicate things. Think of putting together an outfit, but for your sofa or bed. Would you wear these colours together on your body? If not, then they probably aren't a good fit for your house either. And when choosing patterns, it's easiest on the eyes if you pair small-scale prints with large-scale prints, so each pillow has a chance to shine.
