It’s hard to play matchmaker. And we’re not talking about setting your friend up on a blind date (it’s far more serious than that). The subject we’re referring to? Pillows, which come together on your sofa, bed, or window seat to mix and mingle. But how do you make sure the different prints and colors get along? Here are a few examples to get you started. Simply find your style, whether bohemian or minimal, and get shopping!
The Best Throw Pillow Combinations for Every Style
A grouping of bohemian pillows is perhaps the easiest to assemble, as you can never have enough colors or patterns. Just make sure your pillows share a similar palette that ties the lot together.
