Decorating for the holidays is so much fun, but when the month of December ends, how do we get back to classic luxury style without going too overboard? Pillows. All types of pillows in different shapes, sizes colors and fabrics are so much fun to choose and incorporate in your luxury home. Whatever your design style may be, La Maison has the perfect set of pillows to ring in the New Year!
Perhaps it’s time to replace your pillows, but where do you even begin? First, think about the purpose of the pillows, and who will be using them. We use the family room the most to spend time together, and your pillows should reflect those types of activities. Ensure they are comfortable to lean on or rest your head for a quick nap. The fabric should be soft, touchable and easy to clean. Also take into account the size of your furniture. Large throw pillows are better for the bedroom, while medium sized pillows are best for the family room, den or even an office chair. Small decorative pillows with embellishments are best in a space that does not get a lot of use. If you have a sitting room or great room that is mostly for show or special occasions then choose pillows that showcase beadwork or use an expensive fabric. If your space is mostly neutral colors add a pillow with a bold pattern or a bright color for an eye-catching accessory.
Think about the shape of your pillows! There are so many to choose from it may be hard to know which one is best suited for your each space in your home. The most common pillow sizes are standard squares for sofas that measure about 16 inches. Bolster pillows are great for bedrooms as they are unique in their cylinder shape and look great with different fabric options. Lumbar support pillows are usually 14×36 inches and offer back support for watching television or even reading in your office or sitting room. Smaller pillows appear more decorative rather than functional so it’s best to place smaller ‘boudoir’ pillows for show rather than use.
Pillows appeal to comfort. Have you ever noticed most people will migrate to the end of a couch or the corner of an armchair to sit comfortably? Think about where your guests will likely sit after entering a space. Don’t overpopulate your sofa with pillows because your guests might feel sitting down is not an option. Make sure pillows are arranged casually for an inviting seating area and overall atmosphere. When designing a guest room, do not include too many throw pillows on the bed. We suggest arranging pillows in 2’s or 4’s on the bed. Most people move throw pillows to the floor so make sure you do not care about potential wear and tear in the guest room. In the master bedroom choose throw pillows that can double as extra support while watching television or reading a book. Include a pillow for your personal reading chair in the bedroom for added comfort and style. Choose soft and touchable fabrics for pillows meant for relaxation.
When it comes to pillows, personalization is very popular! Give your master bedroom some personality with monogrammed pillows of you and your spouse’s initials or a pillow with an inspirational quote for your daughter. It acts as a sweet reminder, and offers a touch of luxury to any space. Beading and embellishments are certainly beautiful and with so many different options available at La Maison, we’ll help you find the perfect fabric to use. If your home is more modern go for geometric patterns in monochromatic color schemes. One color always works as an accent against a strong bold pattern or print as well. Choose soft and comfortable fabrics throughout your home. We love classic velour for the family room as it adds a touch of luxury and really makes the space feel warm and inviting. Some of the newer trends in pillows include handmade or vintage patterns and embellishments that give a little something extra.
