It's a question that comes up frequently in decor: is it ever possible to have too many pillows? Between shams, bolsters, and lumbar options, the number on a bed can easily add up. While one (maybe two) from the bunch are used to sleep, pillows that add color and pattern are equally important . . . right? Like many things, it comes down to preference. Minimalists favor fewer, but some cannot resist piling them on. Help us put an end to this question for good — how many pillows are too many pillows?

It's still an excellent counterpoint for other colors, but these days, it has no trouble standing alone. What are you waiting for? Dive in to our favorite color of the Fall — navy!
Is weaving the new knitting? Artist Cathy Callahan seems to think so, and with the trend of wall weavings on the rise, we can't help but agree.

Nope, more like a trend. To get you up to speed on the emerging movement, we rounded up some of our favorite weaving artists, secret sources, and even a DIY hack!

Much more textural and dimensional than traditional art, weavings are a great way to add color to a space. We're loving these colorblocked beauties from Brook&Lyn.
While these weavings can creep into the high hundreds (even thousands), we've noticed some adorable options from Etsy for under $100, like this version with fringe and tassels. If you're feeling really adventurous though, try your hand at making your own. Creativebug hung strands of colorful yarn from a dowel, cutting them at different lengths to achieve a similar effect. Check out their yarn banner DIY for a step-by-step breakdown!

This shapely doorway in Marrakech has us rethinking what's black, white, and red all over.
