DESIGN TIPS: Mix and Match Throw Pillows

I love throw pillows because they are such a great way to play with colour and patterns. They are also great because switching them up is relatively inexpensive and can completely transform a space. I’ve put together a bunch of my favourite throw pillows which would be great to mix and match.

Mixing and matching is easier than you think!

How to Mix and Match Pillows:

Natural Pattern + Geometric Pattern + Varied Size + Texture = Amazing Pillow Combo

  1. Start with a natural patterned pillow that you love. There are so many great ones out there. This pillow should have an organic shape or pattern, something nature-inspired and curved lines (anything with straight lines is considered geometric)
  2. Add in a geometric patterned pillow. Like the ones below, these often feature straight lines, grids, etc.
  3. Add in a pillow with a different shape to give some contrast to the other two pillows. These can either be large square pillows, lumbar pillows, or small square pillows.
  4. Finally, add in some texture. The texture can be velvet, wool, cable knit, linen, fur etc. The choices are endless!

My personal favourite combo is the far right column. I love the pink and navy combination with that leopard print pillow.

**For those interested, a geometric pattern is a pattern formed by geometric shapes. A natural pattern is a pattern formed by spirals, curves, waves, and is inspired by nature.

Have a great weekend and enjoy.
