Revitalize your home decor with fabulous Pillows

Throw pillows are usually placed on Sofas or armchairs but are also frequently used on beds, day beds and floors. Throw pillows serve both an aesthetic and a functional purpose.

Decorative pillows are commonly used to tie in color accents within a room, often drawing on the colors in drapes, walls or area rugs.


Is your dream home missing that one thing to make it luxurious? That one thing may be as simple as a throw pillow. Here is how to decorate your house using throw pillows to turn a house in to a home! Swapping out throw pillows with the new seasons is a fun and cost-effective way to revitalize a space. Decorating with throw pillows will always leave your décor open to whatever magic your imagination can conjure.


Throw pillows can bring together a room's color palette and design scheme, providing balance, elegance and visual interest to your home decor. Throw pillows can soften the look of a heavy leather sofa or add a punch of color to a wingback chair. Changing throw pillows is also an inexpensive and simple way to change the design scheme of a room. Either purchase new throw pillows or cover existing ones with new slipcovers, and then throw them anywhere, from your sofa to your bedroom chaise lounge.


 Pillows are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update your décor. They can lighten up a space or help bring together other home accessories in a room. And because they can be very affordable and are readily available in every size, shape and color imaginable, pillows are “go-to” design components when planning your dream space.



Selecting the right pillow


The addition of throw pillows to any bed, sofa or accent chair can really impact the overall look and feel of a room, with all of the choices out there; selecting the right throw pillows can be overwhelming for some of us. Best thing is to keep an open mind and purchase pieces that are easy to return if you're feeling noncommittal. If you know exactly what you want,

Going the custom route or purchasing a higher price-point piece can be very rewarding.

Throw pillows can be used to notch up or tone down any space. A room with multiple patterns might beg for single-shade accent pillows while less dramatic rooms can benefit from pillows with images, multiple colors or bold patterns.


Trendy and stylish styles upgrade any living space. It is always important to consider your individual personality and think about what intent you are trying to convey. Is the Throw pillow set for a living room, bed room, lounge or a child room? This makes a big difference because the theme of the space needs to match your throw pillows.




Tips to consider when Decorating with Throw Pillows



For eclectic or modern decor, group accent pillows in sets of odd numbers: use three, five or seven pillows in a room. Using asymmetrical groups is a common interior design rule for nontraditional decor; the room will feel more visually balanced. Vary the pillows' size and pattern. If you want a more traditional, symmetrical look, use even numbers.

Size and shape.

Vary the shapes and sizes of throw pillows. Standard pillows measure 18 inches by 18 inches. Add a contrasting shape or size into a pillow grouping for additional interest. Large pillows can make a statement in a room; choose one or two with fringe, tassels and trim for additional character. For example, place an oblong pillow in the center of a couch or a round pillow on a side chair.


Throw pillows and decorative cushions are made from a wide range of textiles including silk, leather, microfibre or faux suede cotton, linen and hemp. Vary your throw pillows' textures and textiles for a rich yet subtle mix. Use fabrics from plush velvets to smooth silks. Mix and match pillows: pair stripes and plaids together or combine solid and floral designs.


Pillows are one of the easiest and quickest ways to experiment with color. A vibrant throw pillow can transform an entire room's decor and deliver a bold color statement. Choose pillow colors by looking at fabric, artwork and other accents in the room. Decide on a common accent color and match the color to a paint swatch. Use the swatch to compare different pillows when browsing online. Pillows do not need to be an exact match. Some slight variation adds natural contrast and interest to the room. Add the accent color in a few other areas, including accessories, lampshades and other items of home decor.


Put a decorative basket or storage bin in the room for holding accent pillows when they're not being used. For example, set a wicker basket behind the couch to toss pillows in while entertaining in the living room. Or hide pillows when they're not needed by keeping them in a plastic bin placed underneath the bed. The storage area keeps pillows fresh and clean.
