During our master bedroom makeover, I became overwhelmed and obsessed with how to style the bed and which pillow sizes, colors and patterns to use. Since the bed is the focal point of a bedroom, the throw pillows had to be just right.
Throw pillows are easy to swap out when you get bored of a color/style, so they’re one of my favorite ways to take risks in a bedroom (the title of this post is “pillow talk,” I had to make a sexual innuendo).
There are so many different sizes of pillows and ways to style them but ultimately, I decided to keep things simple, yet still bold and pretty.
I opted for a 16×24 Scalamandre pattern pillow, two 24×24 solid blush velvet pillows (a last minute Home Goods find) and standard queen pillows supporting the two blush pillows.
Whether you have a king or queen size bed, there are a ton of different pillow size and style combinations you can use.
So to help break things down, I created some graphics for some common pillow size combos and my go-to styling methods when it comes to your bed.
You can of course, switch these up as you please, but I love this method because having a pattern against a solid works every.single.time.
Pattern-on-pattern definitely works in many situations, and I think the key is to use contrasting patterns that are not too similar in scale.
When it comes to buying pillows, my one-stop-shop is Etsy as there are a million + 1 options. I gathered some ideas and combinations for you to use in your bedroom below!

If you’re in the process of choosing pillow styles and sizes for your bedroom, I hope this was helpful for you!

This post is just in the nick of time. I’m looking at my sectional and it doesn’t feel right (for a few days now). I was online for a while yesterday trying to pick new covers. It’s good to wake up to some timely help and stuff that affirmed my thoughts! I’ll be using your advice! Thank you!
