Tips For Decorating With Pillows

Custom bedding and curtains in Omaha come in a huge assortment of bold solid colors. You can add a vibrant burst of color to your room by choosing rainbow hues, Chic Pink or turquoise. Try adding a red pillow assemble to a black and white room or bright Yellow or Gold pillows to match a pale yellow wall. Maybe the crisp freshness of neon is your pick. One of my all time favorites is pumpkin. It is an unexpected bold color that is natural too.

Besides solid colors, you can also find custom bedding and curtains in large geometric shapes, which are very popular, large oversized nautical shapes and patterns, as well as, damask and more traditional patterns. The important thing is, to choose a color palette that works well with your decor. You can try running one color throughout a group of pillows to match your custom curtains or bedspread. This works well if you pick up a color from the fabric of other accessories in your room.

How Many Pillows Do I Need?

Adding accessories to your living room or bedroom can help liven up the area while creating a more comfortable atmosphere. A few accessories can go a long way.  The number of pillows you use depends a lot on the style your trying to achieve. If you want a symmetric traditional look try using an equal number of pillows and place them equally on both sides of the couch. Use a large square pillow 18 – 20 inches (16 if your couch is low backed) and place a smaller round or square pillow in front. Sometimes adding an oblong pillow in the middle adds just the right touch. When you’re after the more traditional look, you can liven up the room and add some flair by mixing textures and fabric to create quite an extraordinary look.

If you prefer a more eclectic look, you’ll probably want the pillows to look more like they just landed there. Larger pillows usually make people think of lounging and can create a more relaxed atmosphere. Most designers agree an odd number of pillows work best. You can place 2 on one side of the couch and 1 to 3 on the other side.  Adding decorative pillows to your bed ensemble is a popular way to add elegance and a posh look.

Most designers agree, a larger pillow 18 to 24 inches will showcase a solid color well and patterns too. It is better to decorate with larger pillows than a bunch of smaller pillows. But don’t let that make you feel like you have to stick to one size. Mixing and matching pillows and fabric is often the best bet.
