Textile Tuesday

I’ve had a lot of requests about throw pillows lately. Last week when I decided to start Textile Tuesday to switch up my usual Trending Tuesday a little, I knew that I just had to share my thoughts and love for throw pillows.  Who doesn’t love a good throw pillow? Come on. They’re great.  They make your space look and feel just so much more comfy than without.
A few things I always stick to when it comes to throw pillows:

  • Always start with two base pillows – I love 20″ x 20″ squares.
  • Always end with one pillow that is slightly smaller but don’t be afraid to get fancy with it! Sequins, bows, a pop of color or even a crazy shape {like a bolster pillow}
  • For sofas – Don’t be afraid to frame the sofa with 2 base pillows and throw in an uneven amount of pillows.
  • For beds – Lay you’re standard bed pillows down flat and stack them if you have 4, then add your throws on top and layer them down to the center of the bed.

      I couldn’t have said it better! Etsy is my weakness for pillow covers! Pair them with Ikea pillows and my budget loves me! I’m glad you liked the selections! xo,

      Thank you!! Pinterest is my best friend during my busy season at work! I can’t wait to dust my camera off and start having photo shoots with my weekend shopping finds! xo,


    I love the mixed match pillow look – I’ve been finding the best deals in Tuesday Morning.
