If you are looking for super fast and inexpensive ways to redecorate your home, don‘t overlook the pillow. In hundreds of shapes and sizes and every color under the sun, pillows are a wonderful way to add color to a dull room. They are so completely versatile you will want to get plenty of pillow forms to cover. Old pillows can be refurbished with new fabrics and colors, and there are even some very quick fixes for the sewing challenged!
The first thing is you need to buy the right kinds of pillows. Chances are the regular bed pillows that you sleep on every night aren‘t going to do the trick. You want decorative pillows that have interesting fabrics and designs. Now that's not to say that a plain cotton pillow case with a nice stripe down by the end or a a layer of lace on the edge won't look fabulous because they will with the right design. The key is to pick pillows with fabrics and patterns that go with your overall look.
When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or ˝busy˝ decorative item. This will keep the visual clutter to minimum and add some uniformity to the madness (just kidding, you're not MAD, I love color too:).
