How To : Decorate with Throw Pillows

I think it's pretty safe to say that spring is here and she's here for a while. I love spring because it's the best time to do major spring cleaning and cosmetic changes to my home. This spring I am working on redesigning my space as well as doing a little interior design work. First up is finally finishing my living room. One of the best ways to update your living room is in changing your throw pillows.

A quick and easy way to update your home is in styling your sofa. No we aren't even bothering with purchase a new sofa. Give your loved sofa some special attention in the form of new pillows. 

If you are design aesthetic is any similar to mine.. here's how to achieve a modern look. 

+ It's all in the numbers and placement--- Go for an odd number, like three or five, rather than more traditional pairs. A few big pillows look cleaner than a jumble of smaller ones. I like to place two over sized pillows and then fill in the space with smaller pillows.

Here's a quick pointer start with a pair of 22″ or 20″ square pillows on the outside, and adding a different-shaped single pillow in the middle. Some of my favorites are: a lumbar, a neck roll or  round pillow, or a boxed rectangle.

+ Shapes, sizes, and textures, OH MY! ---  Your couch is the focal point in your home so you have to make it super pretty. Playing with prints and fabric isn't rocket science but there is a method to follow.

If you love having lots of colors, take a tip that applies to all settings: "Pull them from a piece of art that's in the room. Last year, I had to practice what I preached while working on an interior design project. I chose fabrics and colors according to the art installation in the home.

Don't shy away from different textures either. Play with sequin, faux fur, rice paper bags and more to add character to your couch.
