Nothing brightens up a bed like a pile of gorgeous pillows! Mismatched pillows, especially with a central focal point like the one above, are the perfect way to add style and flavor to any bed or sofa. Here are our picks for this lovely trend.
Shades of red give depth and harmony to this pale yellow couch, while the different patterns of the pillows offer an exotic feel. This is a most effective use of blending textures and patterns, as stripes, solids and florals all combine together beautifully. Various red objects throughout the room serve to add more balance and accent the pillows perfectly.
For something a little more neutral, we just love this sofa and pillow combination. The geometric pattern of the area rug mimics one of the pillows, anchoring the space. We love that the pillows are just bold enough to add visual interest to the room, without overpowering the deliciously simple gray couch. We also love the way the hue of the simple window treatments compliments all of the pillows effortlessly.

Now for something fabulous! We are tickled pink by this gorgeous bedroom and luscious wallpaper, but the bed wouldn’t be complete without satin and velvet pillows to add even more sensuality to the space! The details on the pillows just add to their appeal, and we can’t get over the designer’s boldness of throwing in some animal print pillows for even more pizazz. Even the browns and silvers of the solid pillows add complexity to the room, drawing out the depth of the painting above the bed.
Now this one suits us just perfectly. Such an artsy high-end look for a living room! Contrasting patterns capture the eye of any beholder, and turn the couch into a work of art. The daring abstract paintings behind the couch only add to the overall feel of the space as modern, fun, and full of energy. The table lamps help to offset some of the volume of the pillows and lend themselves well to balance. We love how in spite of all the different patterns of the pillows, the size of them create a pleasing sense of balance on this sofa.
