Anytime I head into a home decor store, one of my first stops is the pillow section. Like many people, I seem to have an unhealthy obsession with these fluffy squares of happiness. First, I’m enamored with throw pillows because they make everything just a little more comfortable. One of my favorite activities is snuggling up on the couch (surrounded by lots of pillows!) as I watch Downton Abbey and sip a glass of wine. Does it get any better than that?
Second, I love accent pillows for the role they play in home decor. Just by changing the pillows on your bed or couch, you can give your room an entirely new look. This comes in handy with the change of seasons when you want to mix things up without completely redecorating a space. It also lets you play around with colors and patterns that you may be afraid to try on a larger or more permanent scale. After all, it’s just a few pillows. What do you have to lose?
This week on Pin it. Get it! I’m sharing some bold and patterned throw pillows that I’ve found. I’d also like to encourage everyone to take a risk and try some of these different and fun accents. Pillows just might become your new favorite accessory.
