Help with Throw Pillows from Debbie W.


Help with Throw Pillows
I recently purchased the “Sea of Poppies” Giclee print and absolutely love it.  I need throw pillows to match one or more of the colors in the print and need any suggestions you might have.



Dear Debbie,

We’re so happy to hear that you love our Sea of Poppies Giclee! To really make the print pop, you can pull from one of the painting’s two primary colors – red or green. Now, take a look around your room. Would either of these colors work with your existing color scheme and the accent colors you’re already using around the room? If neither work that well, take a look at the secondary colors in the photo. You could go with a light yellow or peachy-orange. Once you’ve selected your primary color, think about throwing in a little pattern and texture along with a supporting neutral. Here’s an example:


Primary color: Green

Ballard Basic Pillow in Apple Velvet

Ballard Perfect Accent Pillow in Callisto Stripe Green

Essential Pillow in Khaki Twill

We hope this helps. Happy decorating!
