how to mix pillows and patterns

Happy Saturday!  
I'm celebrating the weekend by having some sweetened condensed milk in my coffee a la The Pioneer Woman's recommendation.  You should try it.  So delish and decadent. 

Now onto the good stuff!
I usually don't post on the weekends but one of my favorite blogs, Classic Casual Home, asked me to be part of her "Pillow Addict" series.  I was humbled.  The list of bloggers who took part is fab-u-lous.
If you haven't been reading her blog then you are missing out on rooms like this: her renovated kitchen!

Everyone shares their pillow addiction and today I'm sharing mine...with a twist.
I thought I'd answer the question of how to mix pillows and patterns.  I know some of you get frozen when choosing pillows, but click over to my post for a little lesson!  Then take some time to look around, especially at Mary Anne's gorgeous California home.


  1. Hi Abby,
    I read your great advice on how to mix patterned pillows. But I was wondering about how to use pillows on a white couch. If the pillow has a light background, should the pillows be white also? Or is using a pillow with a cream/ivory/off-white background OK?
    I always thought using an off-white background pillow would look dirty against a white couch.

  2. Abby: Soooo nice to have you over at my place, making my blog pretty with your pillow advice. Enjoy your coffee...sounds like what my Cuban friends make...off to check that out!
