Perfectly Mismatched

Decorating with throw pillows may seem like a small part of the design process, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They’re the best way to elevate your house to a home. Even though they are soft and comfortable, they’re not all fluff. When it comes to living room seating, hallway benches, and pretty much anything in the bedroom, adding a throw pillow will add a ton of character. It’ll keep your furniture from looking naked and bring out the understated design features of the space.

To make this styling process a lot easier,  I’ve put together some styling suggestions to help you nail the mismatched throw pillow look!

1. Add Just a Few Accent Pillows

2. Vary Textures Instead of Colors

3. Keep a Consistent Pattern Size if Using Lots of Color

4. Don’t Vary the Pillows at All—Vary the Couch!

5. Try Earth Tones in a Room with Natural Accents

6. Choose One Color and Experiment with Pattern

7. Accent Fun Pillows With Some That Match the Couch

8. Go for a Cascade of Colors in the Same Family
