Throw Pillows: Tips to Decorate the Right Way

Throw pillows can help add some comfort to your home and provide you with the relaxing experience you expect when you sit down on the couch or lean back in your chair. While throw pillows do provide you with comfort, you do need to keep in mind that you want them to match your home’s interior and you want them to feel good. In fact, now all pillows are created equal and we will go over some things to consider as you shop for them.

Get the Right Fill for Your Throw Pillows

Did you know that the stuffing or fill within your throw pillow matters? There are different types available from a feather and down option to synthetic fillers. If you want a soft pillow, you should go for a feather option. But for a stiffer, firmer pillow, choose a synthetic fill.

Create a Pillowscape with Your Throw Pillows

A pillowscape is a small area where your pillows are mixed and matched. You do not have to be afraid of the patterns and colors and can simply and easily put together oddly shaped, different colored, and embellished pillows. On the other hand, do not choose the tackiest pillows you can either!

Know the Size of Your Throw Pillows

You need to take some time to find out what size pillows you want on your couch and in your chair. If you have a small chair and choose a 36-inch pillow, you will find that the pillow is overwhelming. You need to consider where the pillow will go and then determine the best size for the space. Most couches and chairs call for pillows from 18 inches up to 24 inches.

Throw Pillows Should Be in Odd Numbers

Who wants even numbers all of the time? If you want to create an artful space, go with an odd number of pillows. Instead of pairs, think three, five, or seven. You will have fun and you will break free from the norm.

If you want to add throw pillows to your living room or any part of your home, you should keep the above tips in mind as you find the perfect ones. If you are in need of help designing your home, call J. Design Group today.
