hen decorating with throw pillows, I'm a steadfast believer in the 2-2-1 ratio. It's a straightforward concept that accomplishes spectacular results. Simply adorn your sofa with two square pillows of one size and pattern on the ends, two smaller pillows in a different pattern next to them and finally one jazzy rectangular pillow for the center. The graduated sizing creates height intrigue, while the contrasting patterns and colors add whimsy. It's especially endearing when one fabric sets the tone and the others are chosen with its color scheme in mind. Use this styling secret to spiff up your sofa quickly, easily and affordably.
