What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word pillow? For me, it’s soft. But when it comes to decorating your home, pillows or throw pillows cross over from simply being soft to transforming your house into a home. It also makes everything else look more cohesive – like an element that can pull every piece together as a whole.

Styling throw pillows like a pro is more of a personal preference than a “one size fits all” concept. However, there are some factors to consider that will make styling throw pillows fun and easy.

Pillows for Every Room

What’s the room for? What do you want to do?
Let’s say it’s the Living Room. Is it a place where you’ll have more formal gatherings or is it more laid back where you invite over friends to watch a good movie?

This Bronya wool pillow is a great choice to create that balanced feeling of acceptance and space, or that seamless transition from serious conversations to simply chilling. Its over-sized cable-knit look is constructed from pashmina wool making it soft and comfortable to hug while watching a movie.

These photos from our project gallery will give you more ideas on how to style throw pillows like a pro for your living room area.


Now let’s go to the bedroom 

Yes, throw pillows are for bedrooms too. They’re also called decorative pillows and are not simply meant to decorate your bed, but for you to have extra fluffy and comfortable ones to use with your main pillows.

This Lamb Fur Pillow is made with a soft luxurious wool front and a sweet, polyester back that’s perfect for your bed. It will make your sleep time more inviting and pleasant.

Size matters 

Another thing to remember when styling throw pillows like a pro is to consider the size of a pillow. They are accents to the piece, not the piece itself. Looking at these photos above from our gallery, you’ll see how our designer used different sizes to create a layering but cohesive effect.

Mix and match

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, textures, and colors. For starters, let’s start with colors. It’s best to use three different colors pulled from other parts of the room like the wall, bedding, or curtains. Even if you use different patterns, the look will still be cohesive if they share the same colors. Mixing and matching can be intimidating at first, so let our project gallery give you some ideas.

Have fun styling throw pillows like a pro.
