Freshen up the look of your room, without committing to a redesign, by simply switching the decorative pillows. Pillows are ideal for adding instant color, pattern and texture.
Your room's overarching style is the main influence on the number of pillows you should use, as well as their shape, size, fabric and trim. A contemporary room calls for fewer, bigger pillows, and square pillows with a simple knife edge and large geometric prints work well. For modern rooms, a combination of textures adds depth to a limited color palette.
If you want to go eclectic or bohemian, mix colors, patterns and fabrics as you please, but stick to one size and one common color for cohesiveness. This style lends itself to fun pillows with tassels, unusual textures and even embellishments like beading.
