Help with accessorizing
June 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Thanks for reading. My family room could use some help. Specifically, what pillows for sectional? Unfortunately I'm stuck with this brown monster for awhile, but would like to incorporate some fun pillows. No idea what colors to use but need to incorporate rug.

Im in love with the 'fun pillow era' thats going on right now :) To play it safe you can pick one or two new colors. Personally I like blue with brown, or green with brown. They are sort of safe color choices, but you can still make your living room 'fun' by picking adding a few bright pillows along with a few solid colored pillows of your choice. Florals, geometric patterns, and graphic images are my favorites to work with. Florals and geometric give you the option to pull colors from the pattern, while graphics are a bold pop of one color (can be a neutral or extremely bright). As for a rug, if you pick busy fun pillows, try to pick a rug with one or two colors, or the opposite-busy rug, and more subtle pillows that you can change out with colors in the rug.

I would suggest moving the 'monster' away from the beautiful windows/doors that you have, it would really help open up the room and make it brighter. You have a nice start with the baby blue rug. Try some coral and blue pillows with different stripes and patterns.

Nice suggestions they got here. For me all you need are neutral tones of pillows in your "monster". Coffee tables are also nice in that area.
