Throw pillows...the perfect styling accents !
I can never imagine styling a room without them. Adding the right ones can visually transform the space. Throw pillows ( also called toss pillows) add so much more than just comfort & plushness. They add an entirely new layer of personality. They are so versatile...you change them with the changing seasons , change them for occasions...or change them just because !
Updating your throw pillows is an easy way to update your space... giving it a whole new look. They are the instant solutions to adding color, texture & patterns to create the right mood & style !
You can have a bunch of throw pillows set up and still feel like they don't contribute to anything ! Should they match the walls, the couch , the bedspread ? Should they be patterned or solid color ? Should they of same shape or of different shapes...same size or of varied sizes...many questions pop up !Well...there are no hard and fast rules about how to style with your throw pillows. What I can do is to share with you a few fav pics and tell you why they work for me ...
