Abby from A Delightful Design is one of the most DELIGHTFUL
Abby, her husband and two little boys recently moved into
a new home and its so fun to watch her plans unfold.
Notice the new horizontal stripes in the hallway and chandelier?
She is also working on a project that will be featured on
Hello! I am so honored to take part in this series! I am always in love with everything
Mary Ann designs and I was beyond thrilled to be included.
Of course I've been following along in the series and I tried to think of what else I could bring to the table. Everyone has gorgeous pillows to share! So I've decided to share
my pillow addiction with some tips.
What if you're addicted to pillows but
feel frozen when it comes to combining patterns???
(in our last house)
I am always a fan of breaking "the rules" when it comes to design.
But if you're feeling stuck, here are some rules to follow.
1) It's all about proportions! Start with a large print that you love, like the peacock fabric below.
2) Next, chose a medium and small print that are different than the large. For example, if you use a large floral, then you'll need a medium geometric, and a small stripe.
3) When selecting a solid I always look for texture. Velvet, mohair, linen,and wool will help your room feel finished and sophisticated. If every fabric is the same texture it can get boring.
Here's another example:
Here is a board with two "large" scale fabrics, but it still works because one is a stripe
and the other is more geometric.
I hope you pillow addicts are inspired to keep mixing your colors and patterns! If there are any pillows you like, simply click on the board and scroll down. They are each linked to the source.
We recently moved, and only now have we gotten our home to what I like to call "baseline" so I'm still making decorating decisions like which pillows to buy. Today I shared pillows I would love to have in our living room and I hope you would too!
Thank you so much for letting me visit!
GREAT TIPS for combining patterns/textures.
More fuel for our addictions. Visit Abby here. I wonder which pillows we'll be
seeing on her sofa next?
