The Perfect Pillows
After a long, grueling day at the office, there is no better sight than that of a well-dressed bed ready to be climbed into. This picture is never complete unless you’ve found the perfect pillows to add the finishing touch to this moment. This simple accessory has the power to personalize your space while adding all of the visual warmth of a wood burning stove in the fall. But just how do you pick the perfect ensemble of pillows?
Start with a neutral base that feels effortless and relaxing, complement with an accent of pattern or color to add a little spice to your bedroom. Pillows are a great way to add a pop of color and when the season changes, so can your pillows!
We love to layer. Using your sleeping pillows as a base, layer largest pillows in back and scale down in the front. Just the size differences alone can add interest in shape and texture. There is also some magic behind odd numbers. They seem to be more eye-catching and visually comfortable to even the untrained eye.
A lumbar pillow can ease your worried mind if you are unsure about picking several pillows to make an arrangement. A large lumbar can hold its own by spanning across the pillows behind. Try using colors that bring a sense of cohesiveness to your space and tie together several elements of your bedroom. A large lumbar is also perfect for nestling into while reading that novel you’ve read three times over and can’t seem to get enough of.
Keep it simple. Your bedroom should be the place you go to get away, so keeping your pillow arrangement simple can make a large impact. Fine fabrics, plush linens, and embroidery details can make all the difference.
