THE GREAT PILLOW DEBATE IN OUR HOME IS HOW MANY THROW PILLOWS ARE TO MANY TO HAVE ON THE SOFA? IS THERE A LIMIT OR RULE THAT I’M NOT AWARE OF?
The great throw pillow debate seems to be an ongoing thing in our home. My hubby and sons see no use in throw pillow. Who the heck said they have a use anyway?
They dont even have respect for these beauties. I cringe when they flop down on them and squish them or throw them on the floor. Who sits on a throw pillow anyway? I think furniture pieces are made that much comfier with throw pillows. It seems like furniture is deep these days and I like a pillow behind my back to make me sit up straight.
I decided to try no pillows and several pillows, stand back and take a few photos, and decided what looked best. I may be partial but to me more throw pillows are better.
No ones home much to even sit on the sofa anyway but if someone drops by I like it to look warm and inviting and pillows do just that. For me my least favorite look is two matching pillows on each end of the sofa. It reminds me of furniture store display. And more often than not they have the worst pillows paired with the sofa.
I do have a pillow tip though. If you love throw pillows and like to own several to change out with the seasons or holidays, purchase pillow covers. They take up very little room and you can change them out more frequently.
I’ve recently downsized my throw pillow stash and only kept covers in neutral colors. That way I can swap them out and just add a pop of color every now and again with a seasonal color. It’s easy to get a new look that way without needing a ton of storage space.
So what’s your throw pillow limit, and which look do you like best here today? Is there such thing as the throw pillow police? Ya know like the fashion police!
