5 No-Fail Pillow Combinations For Winter - Pier 1


When it’s cold and frosty outside, keep it warm and cozy inside with plenty of snuggly blankets and lots and lots (and lots!) of pillows. 

Not only do pillows keep your favorite curl-up spots soft and cushy, but they also give you TONS of flexibility to completely change the look of any room. As many times as you want (because winter gets long, amirite?).   

Finding the sweet spot of just the right colors, textures, and patterns can bring your rooms to life -- and make your heart go pitter-patter. 

But sometimes, figuring out what works with what can take a minute. 

How to Mix + Match Pillows

Here are some super-fluid-meant-to-be-broken rules ideas to help you crack the code on how to mix and match pillows: 

  • Choose a palette of up to three main colors.
  • Mix the size and scale of patterns. Choose one large pattern and one small pattern so they aren’t competing with each other. 
  • Add a solid to give your eyes a  break. 
  • If you’re sticking with solids, find pillows with textures (think: fringe, velvet, cable knit) to add visual interest.
