WHAT IS YOUR PIL­LOW PER­SON­AL­ITY?

Your Home and Garden - - Your Makeover -

Pil­low and cush­ion place­ment is a mat­ter of taste, but the way you ar­range them might say some­thing about your per­son­al­ity. Read on to find your style.

1

SYM­MET­RI­CAL

If your pil­lows are ar­ranged sym­met­ri­cally, you prob­a­bly pre­fer to have all your ducks (or pil­lows) in a row. You have a tai­lored or clas­sic style. This ar­range­ment is best suited to peo­ple who are or­derly and de­tail-ori­en­tated.

2 BAL­ANCED WITH AN AC­CENT

If your pil­lows are bal­anced but you like a sin­gle ac­cent pil­low, you pre­fer a look that isn’t too per­fect. Your style is tra­di­tional and clas­sic but with a twist. You aren’t too prim or proper and don’t give in to the lat­est trends.

ASYM­MET­RI­CAL

Are your pil­lows and cush­ions tossed about in no par­tic­u­lar or­der? Your un­fussy style in­di­cates that you are a re­laxed, easy­go­ing per­son who is open to new things. Re­mem­ber to stick with a uni­fied colour pal­ette when se­lect­ing pil­lows and mix up prints, pat­terns and tex­tures to keep the look in­ter­est­ing.

4 PRE­CISELY STACKED

This tower of pil­lows in­di­cates you have a mod­ernist style and are not a fan of clut­ter. If some­one saw your bed they might think you’re artis­tic, cre­ative or an in­tel­lec­tual.
