THE EDIT: AMANDA'S GUIDE TO PILLOW PICKING AND MONTHLY ROUND UP

Updated: Mar 27


 

Let's chat about one of the most exciting parts of styling a space – pillows! I'm all about creating spaces that are effortlessly stylish and timeless, and pillows are like the cherry on top, adding that extra layer of personality and comfort. So, grab your favorite drink and let's dive into the world of pillow perfection, my friends.



 

Tips for the Perfect Pillow Selection



Textures that Tell a Story:

Close your eyes and imagine sinking into your favorite spot on the couch. What's the first thing you notice? For me, it's all about those luxurious textures. Rough linens and organic cottons with that lived-in look – these fabrics add depth and character to your space, creating a cozy vibe that's hard to resist. Embrace those natural imperfections, my fellow design enthusiasts – they're what make your space feel uniquely yours.


Patterns, Patterns Everywhere:

Now, let's talk patterns. I'm a big believer in keeping things simple yet playful. Stripes, checks, Indian block prints – these are the little details that bring your space to life. Mix and match them to your heart's content, but remember to keep it cohesive. Think of patterns as the spice of your design recipe – a little goes a long way, but too much can overwhelm the senses.


Earthy Tones for the Win:

Ah, colour – it's the palette that sets the mood for your space. While I'm a fan of neutrals, I love to sprinkle in some muted earthy tones for that extra oomph. Soft beiges, warm greys, and subtle pops of darker hues – these colours add warmth and depth to your space, creating a cozy haven that feels like home.


Filler Material Magic:

Let's talk fillers, shall we? Not all fillers are created equal, my friends. When it comes to pillows, I'm all about that feather or down life. They offer the perfect combination of plushness and support, ensuring your pillows look and feel amazing. And don't forget to size up for that perfect "karate chopped" look – it's all about making a statement while staying oh-so comfortable.

Size Matters (Yes, Really!):

Last but certainly not least, let's talk size. Oversized pillows are my secret weapon for creating that effortlessly chic vibe. They add instant impact and coziness to any seating area, making it feel like you're lounging in a stylish boutique hotel. Mix and match different sizes and shapes to create depth and dimension – your space will thank you for it, trust me.
