Give your sofa a facelift: Refresh Your Home: Soft Goods Update

Keeping with our monthly theme of ways to refresh your home, another fantastic way to easily change the feel of your living room is by replacing your existing pillows and soft goods with a fresh new flair.

Size & Shape
The major pillow shapes are square, rectangle, bolster and round so consider your sofa shape and what would complement it or even bring some excitement and soften angular lines.  It’s also important to consider what size you would like and the feel they will bring.  Larger size pillows can give a comfortable, lounge-like feel but pillows that large on a smaller couch can look off.  Consider your proportions!

Color & Pattern
Consider colors that will complement your existing space.  We love to mix patterns as well for a fresh, fun look.  When mixing bold prints, we recommend incorporating neutrals to soften and create harmony!

Don't overwhelm your sofa with pillows.  Sometimes less truly can be more.  If you need to move pillows around to sit comfortably, you know you have too many.

Don’t forget, not all pillows are made equally!  From choosing a pillow fill with longevity to quality fabric, there is a reason why there can be such price discrepancy.  We hope this post helps and as always, we want to see your project!  Post your transformation or if you’re still on the fence and need a little more inspiration, check out our Pinterest board!

Have a great day,
