Design*Sponge always has “sneak peek’s” into tons of awesome homes and I usually quickly glance over them, but I saw this place today and completely swooned. What really got me was the eclectic mix of pillows on the couch. I love pillows. As I’ve started filling up our house with various pillows I’ve made (here, here, and here) I’ve been wondering where to put all of them because I’ve been stuck on the concept that a well-styled sofa or bed should have one or two “accent” pillows amongst more neutral coordinating pillows. But that couch is chock-full of accent pillows, and it looks great!

I now have a new philosophy: bring on all the pillows! My couch’s primary purpose is for displaying pillows, providing seating is secondary.

But its more than just bright patterns. I’ve been really interested in different textures and scales of pillows – the way the fabric is manipulated or sewn together and mixing different sizes can create awesome effects.

Here’s a round-up of some cool pillows that would add some great texture to your mix of pillows!
