How to Choose Accent Pillows
Accent pillows are an easy way to update your home's look with without draining your budget. These versatile pieces are the perfect place to show your creativity and bring in new colors, patterns, and textures to enhance your home decor. To find the decorative accent pillows that will pull your room together, choose pieces that complement your style, theme, and color scheme.
Considering Size & Budget
Pillows range from small decorative pieces to oversized floor cushions, so choosing the right one for your space depends on your needs. For accent pillows that fit comfortably on sofas, small chairs, and other furniture, choose standard sizes. Oversized pillows are perfect for sitting on the floor or decorating larger sofas and daybeds. Often purchased in pairs, pillows look better in odd numbers, so consider leaving space in your budget to purchase three or more.
Choosing Style & Color
Pillows come in almost any shape, texture, color, print, or pattern you can imagine. To add visual interest, consider pieces that add contrast to your space. Play up minimal, modern white or black sofas with bold, embellished pillows or fun, shag pieces. Chairs in bright colors receive the perfect complement from understated, neutral pillows, while plush furniture looks great with more structured, rectangular accent pieces. Give your room a cohesive feel by pulling colors from your accent chair into the throw pillows on your sofa and vice-versa. When mixing and matching pillows in the same room, try pairing solid-colored pieces with eccentric, patterned ones to capture attention without overwhelming the eye.
Selecting the Fabric & Material
Stylish pillows can be found in many different fabrics such as velvet, silk, and cotton. Higher quality, more expensive pieces contain feather-down, while less plush items use foam or synthetic filling. If you're using decorative pillows solely for display, you can opt for a less expensive material. If your new pillows will see frequent use, look for those that are washable or have removable covers. And keep your current upholstery in mind. For instance, that silky pillow might look great in the store, but they will slip right off of a leather sofa.
