Pillow power

Pillows can add depth, life, chicness and appeal to a space. Here is an image of my living room before the addition of my new custom pillows. I scored the textile and had pillows made to enhance the space (if you sew, you can save a mint!) 
Now, look at what the neoclassical print does for the space? The addition of the pillows (on the sofa) plays off the chocolate suede chairs. I also scored the snakeskin textile and had them made into floor pillows.
  
  The neoclassical print.  
The snakeskin.
The ottoman upholstered in a Kravet textile, works well with snakeskin.  
I tend to gravitate towards neutral furnishings and then add life to the room with pillows, throws, lamps and side chairs. Are you a fan of using pillows to add personality to a space? Pillows have power, do you agree?

Adore your new pillows!!!! I, too, use neutral colors on sofas and chairs and add "pop" with pillows. Then, I can change things around when i get the urge!!!

merry merry weekend, lisa!

ADORE the neoclassical print - it definitely lends a little gravitas to the sofa and anchors the center of the room - look great!

I have a pillow addiction! Yours are just brilliant, the room was already beautiful, and like you said, the pillows enhanced it. Great fabric choices...all of them!

I love throw pillows...they can change the entire feel of a room. I obsessively purchase pretty pillows and switch them out with my current living room sofa pillows. It drives my husband crazy, but it really keeps things fresh!

The snakeskin is subtle and wonderful!

I love the pattern and texture the pillows give your space! It's amazing what a few pillows, a book or two and some flowers can do to transform a room.
