How To Put Together The Perfect Pillow Combination

Hello everyone,
I have a pillow problem, well that’s what my familyย calls it. But, they’re are such a great way to add a little colour and pattern to a space. You just can’t have too many, right?
The reason I love pillows and cushions so much, is their ability to completely change the way the same old piece of furniture looks. The problem is, there’s so many to choose from; different textures, different colours, a million different prints and a massive variation in prices. That is where Victoria & Abigail come in. I discovered Victoria & Abigail on twitter and decided these products needed to be in my life. Not only do they have wonderful pillows, but a whole range of homewares that all of which, I aspire to own!

My pillow choices can sometimes look random, but here’s how I usually put them together. I’m basing this on groups of 3, because odd numbers in design are so much better. So, here’s what you need to look for when grouping pillows.
1. A solid (or something very close to that) like this.
2. A large scale / zoomed in pattern like this.
3. A small scale pattern like this orย this.
With colour palettes, pick one accent colour. ย That colour should feature onย all three pillows (unless the other pillows are completely neutrals – black, grey, white, tan, or brown). ย So, if you look at my examples, in the first combo, green is the accent and the other two are neutrals. ย In the second combo, gold/yellow is the accent colour. And in the third combo, coral is the accent. ย Other colours can appear in the pillows, but there needs to be one colour that ties them together.

1 = Solid + Large Patternย + Small Pattern
2 = Small Patternย + Large Patternย + Solid
3 = Large Patternย + Solidย + Small Pattern
The beauty of this formula is you can take any pillow away and it still works. ย Try it, take one of the pillows away from one of the combos and the pair remaining still look fabulous together. You can add more to the mix as well and you should be golden.

  1. I think your tips on pillow combos are spot on – I love the black, white and green in combo 1, may have to recreate something like this in my living room.
