With the holidays fast approaching, we're getting ready to open up our homes again to guests. This year especially might be more exciting as many of us were unable to see our family and friends for the holidays last year. Today we're sharing our favorite tips to get our homes ready for holiday guests.
There's nothing better than a good night's sleep. Our quality of sleep affects everything - our day to day activities, energy, diet, & overall health. I've discovered over the years that spending a little extra on good, quality bedding is well worth our hard-earned dollars. With the exception of travel, we sleep in our beds EVERY night - why wouldn't we invest in bedding that will give us the best sleep experience possible?? And huge bonus points if we can find good bedding that is also pretty!!
It's no secret that we love all things home decor, accessories, & furniture. But, the endless options available can be a little overwhelming. Not only do we have to navigate our way through every possible size, shape, & color, we also need to research product quality, reviews, & price ranges! It can be a lot to take on! So, we thought it would be fun, and hopefully helpful, to start sharing some of our favorite furniture & home decor finds with all of you!
Today let's talk about our favorite pillow combos for a gray couch! Gray couches have become hugely popular over the last 5 years and sometimes it's hard to know which colors coordinate best with it. Do you choose cool or warm tones? Can you put browns on gray? So we're going to share some examples of our favorite pillow combos for a gray couch!
Keeping Things Cool
If cool colors (think blues & light grays) are your vibe then you're in luck because those colors coordinate beautifully with all grays - light gray, dark gray, and every gray in between. We love the way our deep Navy Corduroy looks paired with our Stitch Print here. It's a classic, casual look and has some great contrast.
If you're not afraid of mixing patterns, this is a great pillow combo for you to try. It's a little bit cool, a little bit warm and has loads of texture & visual interest. The indigo blue color of Irene is on the warmer end of the cool-tone spectrum which is why it pairs so nicely with Elsie which is a warm, cozy cream color. This combo is like art for your couch.
Warm & Modern
Customers ask us all the time if they can put brown pillows on their gray couch. Our answer is: ABSOLUTELY! Brown actually coordinates really really well with grays & blacks. Gray can sometimes feel a little cold & stark, so pairing a nice rich brown tone with it really cozies things up! We love our Brown Faux Leather paired with a more modern stripe like Ashton. It's a great mid-century combo & looks stunning on a gray couch.
Mix Things Up!
Pillow combos don't need to be matchy-matchy, it's more than ok to have 4 or 5 completely different pillows on your couch! As long as the colors compliment each other and there is some variety in the type & scale of the print, you can do just about anything - like this combo of Mountain Fox, Olive Corduroy, Peppercorn, and Brown Faux Leather.
We hope you found these suggestions helpful! We know not all of these will fit your personal style and that's ok! Our hope is that these ideas can be a starting point for you to build a look & style you love and make your house feel like home.
