Sofa Styling

Did you all catch the article on Glitter Guide about sofa styling? As soon as I saw it hit my inbox I had to read further. First of all, this pink sofa is crazy amazing...why does a pink sofa not work in my house? Just kidding, I am really happy with my new white one I got for my birthday this past November! I do love the styling tips provided by Jamie of Furbish {crazy that her store is in Raleigh and I have never been!}. Here's the rundown if you missed it.


Add a textile first {love the striped below}. Start with a pair of 20" or 22" pillows on each side and add a different shape pillow in the center. Add a second set of square pillows..they can match or not. Either way you want one print that is going to tie it all together. Try to use the combination of one floral, one geometric and one striped...and mix scales. You have to go check the article out, it is a must read!

I have a thing for buying throw pillows- I change them up by season and by holidays. It's a fun and inexpensive way to keep your look updated and fresh. The next thing on my list is going to be a textile that I can add to the back of our sofa, I love that. My favorite sofas are always an effortless look, inviting with fun prints and colors. Something that looks thrown together but chic!

And, thank you all so much for your sweet comments on our engagement and pre-wedding pictures. I was unsure if I wanted to share those on here, but I am so glad I did. Thank you so, so much for making my week! Hope you all have a great Thursday! xoxo.

I am the same way about changing up pillows! I have to keep myself from buying more or else our house would be pillow crazy!

I love throw pillows - it is like a shoe or handbag obsession, I suppose. I love mixing things up, too. Thank you for sharing this - stunning examples, particularly the ones with the brighter colored pillows.
