how to arrange bed pillows

I'm kinda fabric crazy, so it's a total treat to pick out and arrange pillows.  I made this little chart to show you my 10 favorite ways to arrange them, for everyone from the minimalist to the pillow hoarder:

 My go-to is the top right: three euros, two standards, and one large lumbar in a great print or pattern.
Beautiful, easy, done.

I need to print this out for my husband and circle the one for our bed. He thinks all of the pillows are supposed to be under the duvet. But, I have to admit that it always gives me a little smile when I see the strangely made bed...because he's being extra sweet when he makes it!

Love this chart! Our arrangement is a bit too simple; we're lucky if we get the bed made on the weekend.

This is wonderful! I'm printing it out for my daughter (and myself lol). Knowing things like this helps pull the details of a room together and finishes it off so well. Thank you!

I love your go-to as well!

Love this!

What is the outlined space? Is that just illustrating a void or is it a contrasting or special detail?

This was so helpful! I did a little tweaking to my bed pillows and posted about it today.

I've loved your chart and referred to it often. I just did a post with pictures of my bed in a chart and posted your picture with a link back. Thanks! http://prettydubs.blogspot.com/2014/05/14-ways-to-arrange-bed-pillows.html
