Pillow Talk 101: How to Update Your Decor With Throw Pillows


Pillow Talk 101

If you’re looking for a way to update your décor, throw pillows can be an inexpensive and fun way to add something new and exciting to your bedroom, living room or kids room. If you are stuck on where to start you’re not alone. The options of color, shape and size can be daunting but if you follow a few simple hints, you’ll find you’ve soon got pillow talk down to a science. 

Get even! The general rule of thumb is to use an odd number of pillows but we all know rules were meant to be broken. If you prefer even sets, you can create a symmetrical look by using two identical pairs of pillows.  

Mix it up! Don’t be afraid to mix colors as well as patterns and solids. But the trick here is not to overdo. Mixing one pattern and one solid color is easy and always pleasing to the eye. If you want to go for a bolder mix, make sure there’s a theme that ties your pillows together. Use a small pattern on some pillows with a larger pattern on the others and centralize around a color palette. The patterns don’t all have to match, but the colors need to work together. 

Less is more! In the bedroom, pillows are a great way to add some color and fun to the bed but less is more. After all, only you know if you’re going to arrange those pillows perfectly each morning or if they’ll wind up under the bed. 

Let your personality shine! Pillows can reflect our personality. If you’re a cat person, you can show off your love of cats with a Stretching Cat Floral Throw Pillow combined with a solid color pillow that coordinates with the rainbow colors in the pattern.

Throw them at the kids! Throw pillows in kids’ bedrooms add a touch of whimsy and can help carry the theme of the room together. If your kiddo has a love of all things in the jungle, coordinating pillows can be placed in rocking chairs, on the bed or even piled up on the floor for a reading corner. You can even choose personalization with the My Wonderful Walls Personalized Giraffe Print Throw Pillow and many others in our collection. 

Add accents the baby room! In the nursery, pillows can also be a nice accent piece for the room as well as a practical help for feeding baby. You can never get too many pillows under your arm or behind your back when you’re up for those 3 am feedings!

    I think the best thing to do would be to have zippered pillow covers that you can change at whim or seasonal or whenever. My place is so small I just have no where to store excess things like pillows and I love pillows.
