Throw pillows are such an important aspect of a beautifully designed room. They provide variety, texture, color, and comfort. Don’t take them for granted. Just choosing any ol’ pillow to throw on your sofa or chair is fine, but you’re not doing them justice this way. Get yourself pillows that are beautiful, and truly represent your style and personality. It’s totally possible to do this with decorative pillows. Really.
Before you go on your next shopping trip for throw pillows, think about these characteristics first.
These things can get dirty. If this is a big concern for you, then I suggest you think about getting something with a zipper that you can easily clean and maintain.
Consider how often it gets used. Whether this is something that will be used as a pillow, or it sits on a sofa and may never be touched, it matters. Consider what they’re made out of and think about how this will affect its function. If the material is something that will perhaps stiffen, or fuzz up, you may want to avoid it. Just be cautious so that your pillows last for a long time.
Get yourself a variety of pillow textures.Think about mixing up different patterns with solids for a nice variety.
Breaking it up makes it visually more appealing than having a large number of one type. This is especially true for solid colors. Even if they are bright and full of color, having a lot of solid pillows can be less stimulating.
This is one of the best ways to introduce colors to your room. You can have a sofa with neutral tones, but bring in some real pops of color with decorative throw pillows.
Pillows may be a way for you to decide on the overall color scheme. Find that one pillow that has your favorite color combination. From this pillow you can then bring in the different colors with other pillows, textiles, or other elements within the room.
Pillows can be as cheap as $5, or as expensive as $500. It totally depends on your budget and taste. Know that just because something cost more doesn’t make it better. You can get away with finding some beautiful decorative throw pillows that will not break your bank. Lets not have your pillow collection cost as much as your sofa.
