Pillow Talk – How Important Are Throw Pillows

In the great scheme of things, just how important are your throw pillows?  Well….they don’t pass my first test of, “Does it make me look 10 lbs lighter?” when prioritizing the important things in life.  But when it comes to decorating your soft furniture, they’re essential!

Impact of Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are your opportunity to add some style.  To make a vintage sofa a little more modern, and introduce another texture or color into the room without going crazy.  Or they allow you to go crazy if that’s your thing! They do all this while at the same time they can pull a design together, fade into the background or they can become the WOW Factor you’ve been missing.

Just look at these throw pillows from Ali Henrie’s blog.  Don’t you just love them! Absolutely nothing neutral about these! Such a fun and comfy spot to kick back and relax with a great book.

Their Soft Side

Nothing tempts me to lounge more than a soft plush throw pillow.  Don’t these pillows from Jan’s Page of Awesomeness make you want to seriously veg??

No matter your decorating style or the style of your sofa or chair, throw pillows give it that added Oomph and Snuggle Factor. Don’t be afraid to mix up patterns and fabrics, that’s why God invented swatches.  Use colors in your room to pull your look together. Go totally neutral or just add that single pop of color.

Can You Have Too Many Pillows?

Add 8 pillows or just one.  Every piece of furniture is meant to be used and enjoyed and sometimes the right number of pillows can invite you in better than any set of bedroom eyes.  So freshen up your Living Room with a new set of pillows, you won’t regret it. Be sure and check with local thrift stores for pillows, fabric or pillow forms.  Then check out the linen aisle.  Sheets, table cloths, blankets even sweaters make beautiful pillows for less than $2 each.

And hey!  I just figured it out…..if I have enough throw pillows surrounding me, it WOULD make me look 10 lbs lighter.  And now throw pillows have just moved up on my list of priorities!
