Christina's Combo: Black + White + Pink
"Black-and-white works with any style of decorating, pink makes it playful! Try arranging identical pillows asymmetrically (we used two different sets). If the pillows on the right side were swapped, the look would be fine … but not nearly as interesting. Isn’t that a cool visual trick?” —Christina Anstead
Orlando's Combo: Mustard + Teal
"Everything about this is fresh and fun. The color combo isn’t one you see every day, and there’s a variety of heights, textures and materials. Bonus points for including an unusual shape, like a round pintuck pillow.” —Orlando Soria
Hilary's Combo: Blue + White
"Blue and white never gets old, and neither does a long lumbar. It decorates the blank space mid-sofa and makes a big impact — just one and you’re done. The tassels on the corner pillows may seem like a small thing, but they really catch the eye.” —Hilary Farr
Tiffany's Combo: Mint + Lilac
"Pastels are a no-brainer to mix and match, and tossing in a gray pattern makes it modern. I like to anchor the ends with big squares, then add smaller kinds in between. Boudoir pillows (those little rectangular ones) aren’t just for bedrooms!” —Tiffany Brooks
Jasmine's Combo: Orange + Green
"There’s not a solid pillow in this bunch, and that’s the way I like it. As long as you stick to your color combo, it’s easier than you think. Squiggles, geometric, butterflies, stripes — they may not be siblings, but they’re definitely cousins.” —Jasmine Roth
