Mrs. Howard likes a lot of pillows. Here is the eight-pillow combo that she suggests:

In my parents home I was allowed 1 pillow.
In my home I’m running 3 pairs. 2 kings, 2 standards, 2 standard down.

Great post and thanks for the mention, Color Calling! In my NYC apt – queen size bed – I’m loving 4 queen-size pillows (2 with satin cases to save the blow-dry), 2 box pillows and one long rectangular pillow with my favorite Leontine Linens monogram.

The only problem with decorative pillows is where to keep them!! But they are a must-have! Maria
