Finding the right throw pillows to match your bedding will elevate the entire look of your small space and truly make it feel complete. When building the perfect pillow combo, we like to follow a few basic steps:
Set your foundation
The first should be a large euro sham to help create a cozy headboard feel. We recommend using a neutral colored euro sham, or one that matches your bedding.
You should then add in one to two square pillows to help build off of the base. To keep the finished style from looking too busy, our suggestion is to keep one neutral and one colored. This is also the perfect time to add in a textured print.
Next, it’s time to place a pillow with a design or pattern on the front that helps brings the whole look together.
Play With Scale
Bring dimension to your space by playing with scale. Top off your arrangement with a small rectangle or shaped accent pillow to really make your bed pop.
Now you’ve got that down, we’ve made pillow styling easy with these no fail, guaranteed-to-look-chic pillow combinations.
Grey has been the ‘it’ color when it comes to room decor lately because there are so many amazing combinations it allows you to create.For a neutral combo with loads of style, start with the Grey Velvet Ombre Euro Pillow as a base and add two square pillows, mixing pattern and texture with the Mongolian Square and Marble Pillow.
For a cool metallic twist, add in the Metallic Sweatshirt Star Pillow, and top it off with the Grey Initial Pillow for a personal touch.
If you want to make your room feel as cozy as possible, calming blue accents are the way to go. They pair perfectly with grey and white tones to help accentuate the tranquil vibes. One of our favorite ways to use blue hued accent pillows is to ground the combo with a Grey Ombre Velvet Euro Sham.
Next, build your base with the Light Blue Mongolian Square Pillow and the Navy Tie Dye Piece. These together bring depth to the assortment through the varying hues of blue, while also adding in the perfect mix of texture and detail.
It’s now time to add a decorative accent to the look with the Good Vibes Dream Catcher Pillow to exude positivity in your space. Finally, finish off your arrangement with a small accent pillow of your choice to create a cozy layered look. The Shut Eye Pillow is an all time favorite.
If your style is more on the chic and elegant side, pink accents scattered throughout your small space is the perfect combos for you. We love mixing crisp, white bedding layered with pink and gold accents.
For this pillow combo, anchor your arrangement with a large pink euro sham. Add texture by layering the Pink Mongolian Square Pillow and Square Gaga Double Nailhead pillow in gold, and for a fun decorative accent, the Hello Beautiful Perfume Pillow. Polish off the look with the Ryan Beaded Pillow. Its delicate colorful embroidery coordinating with metallic beading, will make your bed shine bright.
Purple is an excellent accent if you want a slightly more feminine touch to your room without being as bold as pink. A light purple sham is a great foundation for this look. Next, add in the Faux Mongolian Square Pillow in Nirvana as well as the White Hamsa Hand Foil Print Pillow to add a pop of white and silver to the look.To bring in a patterned element, choose the Good Vibes Dreamcatcher pillow.
Lastly, don’t forget to play with scale with the Kiss Me Lips Pillow in silver. It pairs with the silver Hamsa while bringing the whole look together.
