Pillows are the quickest way to change the look of a sofa, but they can add up quickly. So today, I rounded up 5 different pillow combinations that add up to less than $100. And I paired them with budget-friendly sofas, too!

    Hi, could you do another update to this post? Possibly even including more than one sofa? Thank you! :)

  2. Love these ideas, thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, I have a soft spot (pun intended) for silk pillows so finding a bargain can be some work.

  3. Sara Davis says:

    I am so sad that some of the pillows I have clicked on are already sold, but I love this post and it’s so helpful! Thank you so much for your posts, I learn so much. Any suggestions on a pillow to replace the West Elm Modern Brushstroke pillow since it is sold out? I think I am going to get all four of those pillows because you are a decorating genius and I have been stuck for awhile now with our current set up. Thanks again!

  4. Randyl says:

    Love the Turkish pillow. Have you done business with them before?

  5. I love this. I’ve been meaning to buy pillows for our bed, but, I honestly have no idea what to do. See I’m stuck with an all white bed with white pillows. It’s a blank canvas really but can’t ever decide. This post gave me a few ideas :)

  6. Rebecca says:

    Great roundup! Checked out the Modern Brushstrokes and it’s already out of stock, such a bummer. I’m astonished I missed an $18 pillow at West Elm.

    • Julia says:

      It’s teetering between in stock and out. Another commenter on Instagram had the same scenario and then she was able to scoop it up a few minutes ago!

  7. Love, love, love this concept! Great combos!

  8. Jeanna says:

    I love all the pillow combinations………..except the eye pillow! Kinda freaks me out, lol! Are eyes the new thing? I see A Beautiful Mess did eyes in a bathroom wall treatment…………….

    • Julia says:

      Haha, I think they are quirky and fun! Not for everyone though.

      • Jocelyne says:

        I like the eye pillow but the link goes to the sofa on overstock :(
        I had been wanting to purchase the People I’ve Loved version but it was a little too large for where I wanted to use it so I wanted to check this one out. Do you happen to have the correct link? Thanks in advance.

      • Julia says:

        Oops! I’ll update that in the post. It’s from right here.

  9. I love, love all the choices and even though I want to stay in summer mode, your post has me thinking about fall and fall pillows. I have a large sectional though and find it tricky to pick the right pillows. Any tips?

    • Julia says:

      A lot of the combinations I posted above (besides #4) doesn’t have any repeat pillows. For sectionals or longer sofas, I think it’s nice to have some pillows repeated on either side.

  10. Brianne Cunningham says:

    I love the indigo!

    As of this morning I have a problem I’d love your advice on. I wanted picture lights at the top of the bookcases on either side of my fireplace. Instead of having the wiring in the moulding for them, the electrician put them in the ceiling right in front of each one. What are my options for a ceiling mount sconce or picture light on an arm for either side (NOT a track light system) with a classic modern vibe?

    • Julia says:

      I’m having trouble picturing this, Brianne. Did he install can lights?

      • Brianne Cunningham says:

        No, he actually did openings for fixtures. He just did them in front of the bookcases in the ceiling instead of where the moulding will be at the top of the bookcases once the cabinetmaker installs them. I had visualized a sconce or picture light on either side coming out from the moulding and pointing down towards the bookcase. Now I don’t know what kind of ceiling fixtures I can use that would have an arm I could point at the bookcases. Please help!!

It’s been over a year since we started designing our bathroom. We were working with Unique Kitchens and Baths for the cabinetry, and they came up with two different layouts. We selected one, tweaked it a bit and chose a lot of the finishes…annnnnd honestly we could never quite give the final “go ahead.” This […]
