Ask Casa: Colorful Pillows For My Bed

Hi Casa,
I'm looking for some cute accent pillow recommendations for my bed. My bedding is the Marimekko Himmeli Set from Crate & Barrel, which is white and light gray. My rug is the Franklin Rug from Pottery Barn. My bed is the Valencia Sleigh Bed from Pottery Barn. My curtains are the Bicolor Silk Window Panels in pewter/steel from West Elm. My rug has a maroon and hunter green palette, but I don't care about matching too much. I'd prefer something not too expensive. Do you have any suggestions for me?
Thanks,
RSVPMo

Hi RSVPMo,
Thanks for thinking of me! Since your bedding is subtle and gray, you have a lot to work with in terms of color. It also has a nice, tree-photo negative pattern, so it would be smart to pick up on the graphic or botanical quality of that. While I'm not one for matchy-matchy either, I think going with bold red, green, or gray accent pillows is a smart choice. I know you said you want colorful pillows, but I also think choosing a bold pattern with more reserved colors (for example, the CB2 Velvet Spray Pillow ($24) in black and gray) would still create a successful focal point on your bed.

I've rounded up several pillow options that I think would work for you. If the prices don't work for you, I'd suggest looking for them at other retailers. For example, Thomas Paul pillows are often available at Bluefly at significantly reduced prices.

Here are a few with a red palette. Personally, I'm rooting for the Thomas Paul Seed Pillow in Scarlet ($100) with the Maharam Mikado Pink Pillow ($150) or the Lekker Seabloom Pillow ($195). Maybe you can find them at lower prices elsewhere?

Here are a few more with a green palette.

And, a few grays.

I hope that helps! Be sure to check out your local design boutiques for some more unique options. Or, if you're handy with a needle and thread, consider buying fabric by the yard and stitch up your ideal accent pillows!

Cheers,
Casa

I hope to eventually have a room filled with candles and tons of beautiful pillows. (Of course, a good distance away from each other...). All of those pillows are great choices, Casa!
