The one thing I love about working with throw pillows in a room is creating a throw pillow arrangement. It is one of my favorite things to do when redecorating a room. If you stand away from the area and take
a good look at the arrangement, you’re amazed at how those throw pillows have brightened up that space. It’s like little pop of colors in strategic areas, almost like wearing a piece of jewelry. Creating a throw pillow arrangement on your couch, chair or bed, is the easiest way to add pops of color, and texture to a room from season to season. Don’t worry, it sounds harder than it is. Buy some seasonal pillow covers or customize covers and inserts (I usually make my own), store the covers and use the inserts over and over again. Then, when the time comes, exchange the covers depending on the season or occasion, easy right! Arranging throw pillows is so much fun for me, and it’s a great way to make a personal statement in a room.
In the world of decorating and design, there is a basic formula for adding a throw pillow arrangement to a couch. It’s an atypical combination ratio of 2-2-1. This combination can include all different shapes, a narrative, contrasting colors, pairings, and the element of texture. Odd numbers is said to be pleasing to the eyes, but I’ve added even number of pillow before, it all depends on the outcome you’re looking for. An even amount of pillows on the couch is more of a classic arrangement because it would normally include a throw. It’s a throw pillow arrangement I personally like. The thing is! it’s all about being yourself, after-all it’s your room. Yeah, it’s good to have a guide to follow, such as the 2-2-1 formulas, but in the end who has to live in that room. So, I say be creative and personalize your room in a way that is pleasing to your eyes. And if one throw pillow is all you want on that couch, hey I’m with you.
