Throw Pillow Styling Guide - Sectionals

Styling a sectional can be difficult.  Sizing of pillows, what to do in the corner, and what colour palette do I go for are some of the many questions I receive.  Here are my recommendations on how to style a sectional.
First choose the colour palette.  I like to start with the colour of the couch and build from there.  I tend to lean more toward a neutral palette and add in one or two pillows with colour.  For the examples below I used a mirror effect of matching pillows.  You can use this matching look or for more of an eclectic look mix and match all the pillows while keeping the recommended sizes.
