I love to decorate!
I am no designer, but I have my own taste and I trust myself enough to experiment. What I like the most is when I create a WOW that doesn’t cost too much. However, over the years I have found some inexpensive tricks to add life or change the look of my décor.
One of my favourites being to mix & match decorative pillows.
Here are 4 rules to help you arrange pillows:
In order to select the dominant color, look closely at your bedspread or your sofa. The dominant color will be the most present to the eye.
Then, choose a complementary color that goes well with the dominant color, but also with your walls and furniture to make sure it remains harmanious.
For a remarkable look, don't hesitate to go with a punchier color!
Depending on the size of your bed or your sofa, the number of pillow will vary. One single pillow would be appropriate for a chair or a small sofa, but oversized on a large king bed! Take time to search for the best sales. By searching closely, you could discover beautiful finds!
Tip: Do not exagerate with the number and size of the pillows to stay affordable and practical when you come to sit or lay down. For a sofa, keep in mind the pillow will stay in place while you sit. Before shopping, have a seat on your couch to measure the approximate available space for pillows.
Take time to shop! Visits more than one shop to find THE real gem. Since this pillow will also guide your choice for the other pillow, make sure to take the one you are crushing for. It will be the leader and reference for the other pillows.
These 4 rules are meant to help you.
But you should always remember to trust your instincts and to have fun!
