Think of decorative pillows as your room’s jewelry—adding pops of color and style. Throw pillows are the ultimate accessory for any space. When layered they add color and texture to any room design. Cushions often add the final layer, creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. They can be understated or bold, grouped symmetrically or asymmetrically, bringing a room together without being overpowering.
Think of decorative pillows as your personal style wrapped up in a petite but potent package. For those of us with color phobias, pillows are a great way to dip into the brave world of color. If we’re fond of a bold hue like red or yellow, we can start with a few vibrant throw pillows on a sofa or chair. The same principle applies to daring patterns like a large abstract pattern or animal prints. Pillows can easily be changed up for a new look, whether seasonally or just to add some new colors and textures to a room. Decorating with throw pillows are one of the best ways to elevate a house to a home.
Select colors by looking to rugs and drapery as well as adjoining rooms. Dark reds, dark blues and pink go well together. Dark green, magenta and gold match well. Dark green, dark red and orange also go well. Patterns can add a lively spirit to a room. A pillow with spots, one with stripes and a knit mix well together. A plaid, a toile and a stipe also go well. A floral, a solid and a modern pattern blend well. Odd numbers usually add a contemporary balance. If we are more comfortable with a traditional look, we can try an even number to achieve a matching, clean look. A feather filled pillow will feel and look softer. Throw pillows expand our possibilities and allow us to step slightly outside our comfort zone, exploring new possibilities.
