FOR THE LOVE OF PILLOWS
Being from the South, having anything less than 5 throw pillows on a bed feels like a decorating sin.
Let me just break it down for those of you who didn’t grow up with this completely unbalanced pillow obsessed mindset…
It becomes part of a beloved ritual to spend a few minutes every morning and every evening gingerly adding and removing pillows. Girls are trained at a young age to “dress your bed” just like you would a doll. Typically you had a trunk at the foot of your bed or a window seat to pile them on when you slept.
How do you know if you have enough pillows on a bed? If you can see more than half of your comforter, that’s a problem. Add a couple rounds and lumbar.
We haven’t had any throw pillows in our master bedroom in a couple years, and it has literally made my heart hurt.
Now I’m ready to “Pillow Up”. (Put THAT on a bumper sticker.)
Our dresser with abstract art was the starting point, and throw pillows are the obvious next choice-not to be taken lightly. We have a very neutral headboard, so it’s like playing with a blank canvas.
CURRENT THROW PILLOW INDECISION
I’m loving the colors indigo, coral, and aqua together. I’ve got three throw pillow combinations that I’m considering right now…
Indigo pattern + coral textured + aqua solid
Coral deco + aqua pattern + indigo pattern
Indigo pattern + aqua textured + coral pattern
*A couple pillows sold out since I created this combo, so I substituted links for similar items.
If money was no option, I’d probably buy them all and swap ’em out like a throw pillow puzzle every morning. (Right now some of you are shaking your head at the computer screen like I’m crazy…and the rest of you are saying, “YEEESSSS. DO IT!”) Those of you with an ability to think rationally about throw pillows, I could use some feedback…
HELP ME. Which option do you like best?
