To create an elegant, upscaled look in any room, layering makes all the difference. It can make a room feel warm, inviting and complete.
Here is an example of one aspect of this concept with the use of various pillows on a sofa.
Size and scale do matter, as well as color and choice of prints. I used striped pattern pillows, with muted pattern pillows of a smaller size.
Though this is a great look, it can be made more full with the use of layering.
I incorporated a leopard print pillow and throw to the design to create the layered look. The leopard print is more of a neutral and works well in any design, especially in this setting.
Layering can be a choice of different size objects, or the same size objects with different colors and patterns. Just make sure that the objects work together, without one overpowering the other.
