One tip to make your room look like it was professionally done is to use only feather pillows that can be karate chopped. So I splurged on two of the big red pillows and it was worth it. Fortunately a previous reviewer mentioned that the background color is taupe and that was perfect for me as this pillow pulls my new home office together. The taupe matches the loveseat i purchased and the red matches the Red Embroidered Faux Silk Curtain Panels. Also the back of the pillow is like a red cotton velveteen. Love these pillows! Love Overstock!
