How Pillows Can Change the Look of a Room
Everyone loves a soft, cushy pillow. Whether you’re grabbing a quick nap on the couch, cuddling up for a movie or settling down to hit the hay, pillows are essential in every room.
However, a great decorative pillow is also a simple, inexpensive way to give a room a quick makeover. A unique design on an appropriately placed pillow can change the entire look of a room. Use a variety of fabrics, shapes, textures, patterns and colors to liven up the rooms in your home. If you’re looking for a way to add pizazz, check out these tips.
For the living room, patterns are a must. If your living room feels dull, muted or dark, try adding a pop of color and a vibrant pattern with your pillows. Place them on the couch and in the lounge chair, and you’ll feel the room immediately change. Pillows are small enough that the pattern will not overwhelm the senses, yet when prominently placed, the pattern will make a significant difference.
For the bedroom, texture is key. Make your room an elegant, romantic escape with pillows that feature lace or sequins and instantly transform your private space into a room you enjoy. It’s amazing how the perfect pillow can take a plain comforter and solid colored curtains from average to amazing with no effort required!
For the kids’ rooms, add instant fun by alternating shapes and themes to keep them interested! Try a great tetrahedron pillow for summer or a Christmas themed pillow to remind them of Santa’s coming in winter.
