The Perfect Pillow Arrangement for Bedroom

The best thing about arranging pillows on your bed is that there’s no real wrong way to do it. However, there are some basic methods that you can build on to create a gorgeous pillow arrangement. A beautiful set of coordinated throw pillows adds texture and interest to your bedroom design, along with the benefit of increased comfort and support. Add some color and variety to your bedroom with these tried-and-true pillow arrangement ideas.

# Bed Decoration Basics

Before you start stacking pillows, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind. First, think of your headboard. A headboard that is 2 feet high or more lends itself well to a robust arrangement with multiple pillows propped up for maximum decorative effect. If you have no headboard to speak of, then you may want to consider a more basic arrangement using stacked pillows. Beds with open-frame metal headboards also look best with a small number of pillows that won’t obscure the decorative framework. In general, beds with solid, uniformly shaped headboards allow the most versatility when it comes to decorating with throw pillows.

The second thing to plan is the color scheme of your bed and throw pillows. If you’re starting from scratch, you have the freedom to bring home an entire set of complementary bedroom furniture, decor, and bedding that creates the look you want. If you have already established a bedroom color palette or style, then choose throw pillows that further your desired theme. Pay attention to the color, shape, and fabric of pillows or shams to ensure a cohesive bedroom feel. Or, you could work backwards by finding a must-have throw pillow that the rest of your arrangement can be based on. Whatever method you choose, creating your own unique look can be refreshing and fun.

# King Bed Pillow Arrangements

A king-size bed has plenty of space for stretching out at night along with a good amount of room for a beautiful pillow arrangement. You’ll need king-size pillows to make these decorating schemes work – standard pillows look tiny against a king headboard.

First combination

4 king pillows

3 euro pillows

1 large bolster

Start with two king pillows resting against your headboard. Place your three euro pillows next, followed by the remaining two king pillows. Center your bolster at the front of your formation. This robust arrangement is sure to satisfy even the most ardent pillow enthusiast.

Place your king pillows against the headboard and arrange your three euro pillows in front of them. Your accent pillows go at the very front of your arrangement and can be centered and staggered, or you can place one in front of the other two in a triangular formation.

Third combination

2 king pillows

2 standard pillows

1 accent pillow

This arrangement uses euro pillows as the backdrop. Lean them against your headboard, and then place your two king pillows in front of them. The standard pillows come next, followed by the accent pillow front and center. The way the pillow heights cascade down lends a particular emphasis to the smallest and most visible pillow up front.
