When it comes to dressing your sofa keep in mind that your accent pillows are like jewelry, they can stay the same all year round or they can be switched out for the various seasons. Accent pillows will add depth, character and color to your space. They really are ideal when designing your wonderland! One thing I see people do is buy a new sofa and keep all the accent pillows that came with the sofa on it. I’ve actually heard someone in a store say, “I can’t buy that white sofa because the two accent pillows don’t match my current color palette.” I honestly had to hold myself back from saying, “You can toss them and believe me you should!” Please, don’t be afraid to toss the plain accent pillows aside and buy new ones! New accent pillows are an inexpensive way to add spice and glamor to your sofa and any space. Below are my do’s and don’ts to sofa accent pillows.
Let’s start with the DON’Ts: The two sofas below are shown with their original accent pillows. This look does not show depth or character.
Moving on to the Do’s!!! All three sofas below have had their old accent pillows removed and have been replaced with accent pillows that add character, texture and depth!
When it comes to sofas never be afraid to change them up with gorgeous accent pillows. Trust me they will add the interesting factor to your wonderland! Try mixing and matching various textures, patterns and colors until you have designed the exact look you want for your wonderland!
