Patterned Pillow Combinations

Although I prefer a clean fairly simple interior, the one element I can never get enough of is subtle pattern mixing. My taste and personal style has evolved over the last few years, but I will never tire of pretty patterned pillows or rugs. There are some pillow combinations that just work together seamlessly. The complimenting colors, the scale of the patterns and overall details that can elevate a basic sofa and help to bring a room to life. I change out our pillows all the time (it is easy to remove the covers, fold them and store them) which helps to make our apartment look different and bring new life to the space. Below are a few of my favorite pillow combinations for any style!

    Hi Jessica,
    Thank you so much! My rug is from a flea market, so unfortunately I don’t have a link for it.

    Hi Chrissy,

    Where is your sectional sofa from? I’ve been looking for one that has a relaxed feel to it and haven’t had any luck. Yours looks perfect!
