Love pillows, but have a hard time styling them? I created this little diagram to show some ideas of how I arrange pillows on sectionals (it works for sofas, too), from just a couple of pillows to a bunch. It also demonstrates some pattern mixing, though the point is really to show placement and sizing.
For clients, I most often suggest the 5th arrangement. It looks full but not overcrowded, and can be more complex or simpler depending on the colors and patterns you use. I like 22" covers for the largest square pillows and 20" for the smaller (with down inserts 2" larger). I almost never use 18", I think they look dinky.
Need ideas for your bedroom pillows? I also made a diagram for bed pillow styling here.
