Who says your throw pillows has to be the same color, shape and pattern for your couch? For pillow’s sake, switch it up! Your living room should breathe excitement. It should be a place where you want to enjoy … well … living – watching TV, entertaining guests, reading and more.
When shopping for new throw pillows try to pattern play for an artsy look. Even if your couch has its own pattern, you can still find complimentary throw pillow patterns.
The key to pattern play is to start with a specific pattern. Floral patterns are easy because you can create a couch boutique of different floral pillows, ranging in size and shape. Floral patterns also allow you to pick other pillow patterns from the colors in the floral pillow. By building the color palette based on the colors, you are able to vary the style into stripped, geometric, and/or polka dots. While you’re at it, vary the size and shape as well to create a lovely contrast.
The most fundamental aspect of pattern play is to have fun!
