In addition, you can explore and play with different fabrics with patterns, patterns and different textures when decorating.
- Proportion and harmony in the choice of size and quantity : The size of the pillows should be in harmony with the size of the sofa backrest. With this in mind and not exceeding the size of the backrest, you can arrange the cushions in varying sizes from the largest to the smallest. Another important point is the number of pillows to be placed: normally in living rooms, the ideal amount does not exceed half of the sofa, but since there is no rule, you can compose with many of them or a reduced number of items.
- Mescle tones of the color you chose for your sofa : Recommended for sofas with stronger colors, the famous tone-on-tone technique will help you create a harmonious environment using the color palette of the sofa itself, just switch lighter and / or darker shades.
- Use the color wheel in your favor : The chromatic circle will help you avoid that feeling that nothing is matching anything. Through the concepts of analog and complementary colors the color combination of the cushions becomes much easier.
- Give more prominence with vibrant tones for your neutral sofa : Sofas in neutral colors like gray and beige basically match any pattern, color or texture you imagine. Instead of using the color palette itself on these neutral sofas, you can use strong, contrasting colors, be they more vivid or a composition with black and white. The main point here is the highlight and the personality for those perfect backgrounds.
- Dare with mix of prints : the possibility of blending prints is almost infinite, but some care must be taken not to leave everything too heavily loaded. You can combine stamped pillows with other smooth ones or use different patterns that have something in common such as color or geometric patterning, for example.
- More personality for your room : fun cushions with prints and varied shapes are another possibility in the decoration, because they give a touch of humor and personality to your sofa and your room with references to bands, movies and objects that leave the atmosphere with your face.
