Shopping for Pillows

Pillows are the perfect finishing touch in a room. They pull everything together, and can add a needed pop of color or texture.

The most important thing to look for when selecting pillows is variety. A couch with four identical pillows can easily look boring. I find a good rule of thumb is to keep the numbers odd, and make sure you vary the material, pattern or hue. For example, a bed with five identical hot pink pillows could look flat and staged. A bed with two velvet hot pink pillows, one pink and white Ikat pillow, one rose striped pillow, and one blush colored cotton pillow would look a lot fresher, and have more visual interest.

All of these have stolen my heart and put a smile on my face.
