Mix It Up: Black + White Pillows

By Kate Riley August 16, 2017

Black and white is still going strong as a popular palette, it looks chic and it’s easy to pull off, all you need to do is mix patterns in this neutral monochromatic palette.

With autumn around the corner, layer woven, kilim, or mudcloth fabrics for added texture and warmth. Get the look seen in the inspiration images below by mixing square covers with a lumbar shape.

  1. I love those prints. Black and white is all time classic. I did not expect that black and white pillows will look so great on a brown couch Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I found the target pillow with the tassels @ a local goodwill- brand new – very recently – ($6 each- score!) i bought three for my sofa and they looked SO great! A very naughty puppy ate one of them when I wasn’t looking (how do they do that so fast and so quietly!?!)… so I was excited to see they still exist, and even with some others that coordinate! Hurts to pay three times as much but even so- very cute!! Thanks for this collection!

  3. I love this monochromatic look! It works well in so many homes and black & white are compatible with most colours. So even if your walls are yellow, it still looks amazing.

  4. Black and white pillows are versatile and can look great in every room. No matter what your existing décor is, you can always find black and white pillows that will look great.
