5 Ways to Incorporate Decorative Pillows into Your Home
Posted on May 30 2018
Do you want to add exciting patterns and colors to your home's interior? Here's how you can use decorative pillows for the perfect pop.
"Don't be afraid to experiment. Not everything has to match. A house that is 100% perfect is rarely full of charm." Rebecca De Ravennel.
Home is where you feel comfortable. Do not fear to experiment with what will make you happy. After all, it is you who lives there and nobody else.
You can play around with many things to spruce up your living space.
Among my favorites are throw pillows--simply because of the versatility they bring.
Let's get right into it and show you how to fearlessly use decorative pillows to turn your home into a paradise.
Texture Works Magic
Textured pillows will instantly add visual interest to your living room. Play around with different textures to avoid looking tacky.
Think of yourself as an artist. People's eyes are instantly drawn to lines in a room.
Just like an artist's masterpiece would invite you to stare deep into the painting, your choice and combination of the right textured throw pillows need to attract attention with a beckoning invitation to sit and feel at home.
Play Around with Different Shapes and Sizes
The great thing about decorative pillows is that they come in different sizes and shapes. Just imagine how boring it would be if everything in your home came in one size!
When using throw pillows to decorate your home, you need to look at the size of your couch and the bed. Be creative. However, be keen not to drown out the space on your couch with overly large decorative pillows.
Of course, this depends on the size of your seats; nevertheless, when using throw pillows on the bed, feel free to use the bigger sizes without fear.
Round decorative pillows always bring out a unique and different touch--try throwing them into the mix in the right proportion.
Minimalism is Key
Do not feel like you need to fill your home with hundreds of throw pillows in all shapes sizes and textures.
Remember, less is more, and there is always a touch of elegance in minimalism. Overdoing it creates too much sensory stimulation; this causes the room to look crowded, uncomfortable, and less inviting.
To help you achieve the desired balance in your space, work well with the symmetry of your pillows.
Make it Bold and Unique
When done the right way, boldness can be great for your living space. Being bold is often confused with throwing anything around with an "I don't care attitude."
You need to remember that interior decor is an art that borrows a lot from environmental psychology and psychology of color. Therefore, it is possible to go overboard with decorative pillows.
Boldness in this sense implies that you shouldn't fear using a bright color on your rather neutral colored couch or the other way around; after all, this is one of the places people immediately look at when they come into your living room.
Be courageous enough to use decorative pillows that will make your living space stand out.
It is essential to own your space. Again, remember that you are like an artist creating a masterpiece. Every artist has their signature on their work and so should you.
You can do this in many ways, some of the covers to your decorative throw pillows can have pictures of your pet, your family and anything else you love.
