Throw pillows are a favorite of mine when it comes to decor. I love that they can be used in a variety of ways, for interior and exterior decoration. And the style options are endless which make them a great choice for those of us who can't quite decide on a permanent theme, or even for those of us who need a little extra help in the decorating department.
Tips for Using Throw Pillows in Decor
- Seasonal decorating - I get bored of my decor fast, changing it out for the seasons or holidays. This causes a storage problem and it can become very expensive with so many knick knacks. Throw pillows help to solve that problem- the covers take up significantly LESS space and are much easier to store. Plus, they don't break in storage.
- Just buy slipcovers - Once I have a set of pillows I love, I only buy slipcovers. Then, when I want to change things up all I have to do is switch out the cover. (view these slipcovers here)
- Buy good quality pillow forms - Although you might be tempted to grab that pillow that costs $10 less, buy the nicer quality! They will last longer and achieve the look you want. I decided to buy nicer pillow forms so they could stand on their own. I add a karate chop to the top and voila, hotel-style pillows! ( favorite pillow forms here)
- Use them in places other than couches - Throw pillows don't have to just be on furniture. I love to stick them in baskets too. Other options may be placing them on a bench or propping up on your fireplace. (favorite home storage items here)
- Change your room theme - You can also change the entire look of a room just by switching out pillows. This is the same room, all I did was roll up the colorful rug and change out the pillows. No need to paint or change any big furniture items.
