Love the mix of patterned pillows in the Room of the Week. They provide the perfect formula for creating your own pillow pairings.
Here’s a few tips to learn from this grouping:
- An odd number of pillows makes a very pleasing arrangement to the eye.
- Use pairs of pillows for simplicity’s sake and to create rhythm in the room.
- Pay attention to the background of each pattern, in this case white. Keeping the background the same for all the patterns helps the patterns easily coordinate.
- Follow this simple formula to create a playful mix: 1 Floral Pattern + 1 Striped Pattern + 1 Abstract Pattern
I put together a few examples to show you how this formula works!
ONE: Sofa | Floral Pillow | Stripe Pillow | Abstract Pillow
TWO: Sofa | Floral Pillow | Stripe Pillow | Abstract Pillow
THREE: Sofa | Floral Pillow | Stripe Pillow | Abstract Pillow
FOUR: Sofa | Floral-ish Pillow | Stripe Pillow | Abstract Pillow
I hope this helps if you’re looking for ways to create a pretty pattern mix.
