The winter months are made for cocooning on the couch. Here, how to give yours some seasonably cozy and sophisticated touches, from Merridian in-house designer, Jack Kennedy.
Pile on pillows: Don’t place the predictable matching pillow on either side. Instead, create an interesting grouping on one end like the trio here.
Toss in texture: A throw blanket doesn’t just keep you warm; it’s an excuse to add a visual and tactile interest. Choose a fabric that’s nothing like your upholstery.
Play with pattern: Here, patterns with different scales are unified with a splash of red and are infinitely more interesting than matchy-matchy accents.
