Decorative pillows, sometimes called throw pillows, can add the finishing touches to a room makeover or breathe a new life into any room in your house. There are many styles and sizes of decorative pillows available on the market today. As with any home accent, decorative pillows have their own dos and don’ts.
Cleaning - you will be able to enjoy the beauty of your new red decorative pillows only if they can easily be kept clean. So, before buying ones make sure that at least their covers are machine washable. The dry method should be checked as well.
Most of the designers recommend that large furniture like loveseats and sofas. Yes, it is true. With large furniture, you can use small patterns for your throw pillows or you can use neutral tones. But small furniture can also be accentuated with decorative throw pillows. These throw pillows are layered to add pattern, color, or theme. If you try to be creative on your choice of design, you can make your place more versatile. Anytime, you can swiftly update and change your pillows.
If you're going for angular square or rectangle pillows you want them to be in the 16 - 26 inch range, no bigger but in a few cases they may be smaller. These pillows generally need to be large enough to full showcase a few passes of a given patter or even a large block of solid color. Rectangular pillows are really nice because the oblong shape is usually unexpected and adds a bit of extra flair. In most cases you will not be opting for a circular pillow, and unless you are an experienced designer or just know that you've got the stuff you should be cautious when approaching your sofa with spherical cushions. Round pillows tend to not blend well with the overall angels of your furniture, unless of course you a have very unique piece such as a cylinder bed or circular patterns in your rooms decor.
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:).
