I've had two very large Euro pillow inserts (like these, 26"x26") for ages, but had never made matching pillow covers for them. Then, not long ago, I bought a couple yards of amazing hot pink denim at JoAnn on clearance for super cheap, and while I loved it for the chair I'm reupholstering, I couldn't do that to my dear husband. Permanent pink furniture might be too much for him (and maybe me! What if I got tired of it after all that work?)
So I finally decided to freshen up the bedroom decor with some hot pink, and made these!
Love how they look with the ever-versatile tufted headboard I made!
But, I'm not used to having extra large throw pillows on the bed, and now I don't know what to do with all the other ones. We normally have four regular pillows with regular pillowcases and/or shams, and then a couple throw pillows. But adding these is just a few too many to set aside every night at bedtime (the chair is getting precariously stacked with pillows as it is.)
So, help me pick an arrangement of throw pillows incorporating the new ones!
Option 1: ALL the pillows. The four sleeping ones, plus the two toss pillows I've had on there lately, plus the new ones.
Option 2: I never know what order to put big pillows in. Maybe the large pink ones go behind?
Option 3: Bare bones, let the hot pink ones stand on their own. Plus the sleeping pillows.
Just got these two matching pillows at Goodwill, brand new--super fun tie dye look on the front and shimmery silver/beige on the back--shared on Instagram the other day. So Option 4 is the four sleeping pillows (turned sideways--aaah, another option!), the big hot pink pillows in front, and the new matching pillows.
I'm sure you can imagine endless additional options and pillow scenarios. As you can see, this is an extremely diffusion question. (#firstworldproblems, I know.)
But, it's always fun to move pillows around with friends and see what looks best, so I figured I'd ask you! Lend a hand, would you? What's your vote?
