One of my favorite tricks for easily updating a space is to simply add a few new pillows. They have the ability to instantly add texture and personality to any room. You can have fun incorporating different patterns and prints or introduce a bright bold color. And don’t forget texture – I love including a few faux fur pillows to our home during the winter months for added warmth. Pillows are a great way to play around with your favorite trends, without making a big commitment, or spending a lot of money.
A few weeks ago I shared our Dining Room and Living Room Refresh with you. I had been struggling with this space in our home for quite some time, and I was eager to give it a bit of a facelift. We kept all of our large furniture pieces and simply updated the space with new paint, pillows and art, but it has made such a difference.
We have grey couches in our living room, which I love because they hold up so well with pets and children, but I would love crisp white couches some day. In the meantime, I like to lighten up our couches up by adding light colored pillows.
I always keep at least four white or cream colored pillows on our couches, and I have fun adding in different colors or patterns depending on the season. When it was time to choose new pillows for our space, I went straight to my favorite fabric source, Tonic Living. I immediately fell in love with this gorgeous neutral buffalo check fabric, I love how it adds a bit of a modern feel to our farmhouse style. And I paired it with this beautiful neutral fabric.
As I mentioned, we have three pets and a one-year-old, so zippered pillow covers were a must this time around. It makes cleaning a snap. If you want to sew your own zippered pillow covers you can see the full tutorial here.
I like a lot of pillows on our couches, I think it makes it that much more cozy and inviting, so I didn’t stop there. I knew this show-stopper would complete the space – The Porter!
You know when you come across that one perfect accessory that you just have to have? Well, this is it for me. It’s so beautiful and compliments our living room so perfectly. It is extra long so it works well on our large couch, and the grey and white color-blocked pattern is bold and a little bit modern. I can’t forget to mention the vertical exposed zipper, it is the perfect finishing detail.
Not only does Tonic Living carry a large selection of designer fabrics, but they also offer an array of beautiful pre-made pillows, and if you don’t see what you’re looking for in their shop, they also take custom orders!
