What’s not to love about throw pillows? Aside from changing the color of your walls, there’s no easier way to change the look of your living or bedroom, than by changing the decorative pillows you display.
Some might think that simply pilling them on is enough to show you know a thing or two about décor, color and style, but there’s more to it than that. A mish-mosh of pillows might have a bohemian flair, but a little thought can make your sofa or bed look smashing.
Lovers of travel and exotic locales can add a couple of throws made of Indian or Moroccan prints for a touch of excitement. But, unless you truly want your décor to completely reflect a foreign locale (or a bazaar), be careful not to add too many of these touches.
Show your wild side by employing touches of frankly-bold prints: Daliesque craziness, Picasso-like prints, Cocteau’s colors and sensuous lines – can all showcase your artistic, bohemian flair.
Of course, throw pillows do not a living room or bedroom make. They should be coordinated with the pictures on your walls, the items you display, your curtains, and the overall style of your room. My recommendation: Apart from being beautiful, your pillows should also allow you to lay back and relax. There’s no need to get pillows so laden with decorative elements that they’re too stiff, too formal, or to uncomfortable. You want to enjoy your environment, not just admire it.
‘Til next time.
