Pillow Mixing and Matching 101

Mixing and matching throw pillows can be so tricky - getting a matching set can look generic and too matchy-matchy, but choosing several different pillows can look random and messy.

So how do you get a curated and personalized aesthetic that also has a cohesive look?

Below are a few easy formulas you can follow when choosing throw pillows to help you create the perfect combination

Layering Texture

For this look, choose pillows in the same color family but with varying textures. This simple strategy adds a ton of warmth and coziness to any space.

Texture + Pattern

Just like the first approach, this formula uses the same colors but with a mixture of texture and pattern. Not sure how mix patterns well? Read on!

Organic pattern + Geometric Pattern

Contrasting organic and geometric patterns in the same color scheme is a great way to bring visual interest to a space.

Choose patterns like florals, foliage, paisley, or any pattern with fluid lines and shapes, and pair them with geometric patterns like dots or stripes.

Large Scale Pattern + Small Scale Pattern

Lastly, an easy way to mix pillows with the same pattern are to vary the scale of the pattern as shown above

Of course, rules are meant to be broken, and the fun of mixing pillows is to show off your personal style, so have fun with it! We hope these tips help you the next time you go shopping for throw pillows!

Happy Styling!
