This is what your pillow placement reveals about your personality

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.

What your pillow placement reveals about your personality

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.

3. 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.
