get color in your home and no paint necessary with throw pillows! just like the area rugs in my previous post, throw pillows area an easy, cheap and cozy way to infuse color and pattern into a space. throw pillows are decorative pillows that you can put on couches, chairs, beds and some large scale ones on the floor! most people have solid color couches so patterned and colorful throw pillows will spruce up your beige monstrosity in an instant!
don’t be afraid of patterns! don’t be afraid to mix patterns! too often people buy solid brown, beige and maroon throw pillows to go on their beige couch with solid color area rug. noooooooo, get kooky with some patterns, i’m telling you you won’t regret it! even if you have a patterned area rug, get some patterned pillows too as long as they are in the same color family or style as the rug and each other. look at the inspiration photos above and see how well the stripes and patterns, etc. work together! i also love throwing in some black and white patterns for a more modern/masculine twist.
i got the throw pillows for my couch at World Market. but i also like Etsy a cute Etsy pillow shop by Veedubz, or these recycled felt pillows by Alexandra Ferguson so cute!, EcoArt Pillows (seen above), Modern Eco Homes, Ikea, Pier 1, Urban Outfitters, CB2, Target, Ross, PillowDecor.com
