How To Style A Sofa

Styling pillows on a sofa can be a challenge.

We excited to share our guide for styling a sectional with you!

Here’s a step by step guide to styling your sectional:

Create a Color Palette

The first step is to create a color palette. Start by use your sofa color as the starting point.

We like using neutral tan and linen colors that naturally flow, and then bring in the bolder hues. Incorporate blues or subtle mauves. As a rule of thumb, we try to avoid using more than five colors.

Big pillow first

Start with the back corner of the sectional and put your biggest pillow there. We always use a 24” inch pillow. It may seem big, but you don’t want it to get covered by the pillows you will be putting in the front!

Layer in the next size

After we have our 24′ inch pillows, we use a 22′ inch on both ends of the sectional to start filling in the look. We apply this same rule to the middle too!

Add in smaller pillows

Create layers in the corner with shorter pillows, adding more 22” pillows, 20” pillows, and/or lumbar pillows. This corner should have the most pillows.

Add a throw blanket

Our final touch is to add a throw blanket. It gives the space a cozy feel, and provides an element of comfort.
