How to Decorate with Throw Pillows
1. Play with Texture
The texture of a throw pillow can, of course, enhance the comfort of your sofa or bed, but it can also have a significant impact on your decor. A shaggy pillow or a pillow with chunky knitting can promote a casually resplendent atmosphere, while a smoothly embroidered pillow delivers a more subtle and elegant charm wherever it is used. Some pillows feature textures specifically designed to enhance their patterns, following the same lines and shapes to further accentuate the design.
2. Mix Up Patterns
You can use pillows with decorative patterns to effectively accentuate or contrast patterns already in your furniture. Floral, plaid, animal print, checkers, paisley, stripes, polka-dots, and houndstooth are just some of the more popular options available to you. Pillows can also be found with handsome and colorful words embroidered onto their covers. Pillows with the same pattern as your furniture can help your decor feel calm and uniform, but a little bit of mixing and matching can create a more lively and energetic appeal. However, when mixing pillow patterns, it is a good idea to also mix sizes to avoid clashing.
3. Tie in Contemporary Colors
When decorating your home, it is essential to pick a color scheme and stick to it as closely as possible, only deviating from it rarely for contrast. However, that does not mean that your decor should be monotone. Color schemes are built around complementary colors, and complementary colors can be very diverse. Usually, two colors that are opposite each other on a color wheel, like red and green, are complementary. The contrast between the two colors can make your decor feel vibrant, but sticking too rigidly to two complementary colors can be jarring. Colors that are similar to each other, like red and maroon, usually belong in the same color scheme and can be used together for some diversity. Pillows are the perfect way to fill out a color scheme because they are small and come in a huge assortment of colors, making them subtle accents that are available in exactly whatever shades you need.
