Sofa Pillow Styling

I don't like rules. Rules bind creativity in my book. That's why when it comes to pillow arranging, I like to explore with patterns and venture outside the box. 

For months I have been purusing online shops and local boutiques for the perfect pillows to display on my sofa, and I finally ended up leaving West Elm on Sunday with a pair of Mongolian lamb beauties. The pillows really bring warmth into my loft, and although the pillows are a solid color, the texture adds the same amount of personality as a print would.

The colors you choose and prints you use should reflect your personality above all else. Try to avoid buying your pillows all from one source, or it will end up looking like the cover of a catalog. Utilize your unique style and have fun with it!
Here I mix bold patterns with softer prints. The arrangement I usually stick to is a printed pair + a subtle pair + one odd pillow. These gorgeous pillows can be found at Amber Interior's Shoppe. Amber has a stunning collection- go check it out!
Keep the look balanced, but not too symmetrical. Here I use a printed pair + two odds.

I love to mix and match neutral patterns, you really can't go wrong here! Above I use three different prints that blend together in perfect unison. You can incorporate 'pops' of color with a rug and/or accents.

Don't these West Elm Mongolian lamb pillows and poufs add warmth and an ethnic charm to my loft? I am looking to replace my middle odd pillow with this funky one. Ah, pillow love!

What is your favorite styling trick for mixing and matching pillows?


  1. I'm loving the style you are going with!! So my style too! =)

  2. Love those lamb pillows! I love texture when it comes to decorating too.

  3. I'm all about mixing and matching patterns. Makes so much more fun instead of all of this matchy-matchy nonsense. ;)
