Dallas homeowners can add a touch of Texas charm without going overboard by using some great throw pillows. There’s no easier and less expensive way to refresh your living room or bedroom than by updating your throw pillows. It’s a great way to embrace the latest home decor trends without fully committing to an ikat print or an orange chevron design. Decorative pillows are relatively inexpensive, especially if you revamp your old ones.
One pillow placed in a chair or on a sofa can change the look of a whole room. Pillows can create that pop of color you need in a room or serve as a transition accessory to pull together different colors or styles.
Reflect Your Personality
If you have a wild side and like cow skull prints, find throw pillows decorated with these designs. They’ll work well in a teen’s bedroom; depending on your design theme, you could also use them in your living room. Show your love of the Dallas Cowboys or Dallas Mavericks with decorative pillows for your man cave or den. Embrace Texas rustic chic style with cowhide pillows or styles with accents of burlap. Throw pillows are a great way to show your personality or interests in your home decor, no matter what your style is.
Placement matters when it comes to decorative pillows. Pillows propped up across the back of a day bed create seating. If you move them to one side, you’ve converted your day bed into a sleeping area. You can create more comfortable seating on benches or in a breakfast nook with some larger pillows against the wall. Large floor pillows are perfect for extra seating in a kid’s room. Children and their friends can use them while watching television or playing video games.
Pillows Rule in Bedrooms
Bedrooms are the place to go crazy with pillows. Some new throw pillows placed against your pillow shams will create a whole new look. Provide options in the master bedroom or guest room with a variety of pillow shapes and sizes to provide extra comfort.
The latest trend in decorating your bedroom with throw pillows is not to be too obsessed with matching the bedding. Choose a coordinating pattern or pretty contrasting or neutral color to create a new look in your bedroom.
If you don’t want to sleep with your throw pillows, place a plastic bin under your bed to stow them. If you can create a little extra room in your closet, have a hamper that can be used just for pillow storage.
Where you place pillows on your sofa depends on your style. Go traditional by placing a throw pillow or two at either end. For a modern decor, prop up a pillow in the middle of each cushion. On long sofas, arrange your decorative pillows in angled layers across the back on one side. Throw pillows give you the flexibility to easily change the look of your Dallas home.
