Pillow Fight

October 5, 2011

Accent pillows are a great (and typically inexpensive) way to add depth and style rooms and individual pieces of furniture.  Like lamps, I can never really get enough pillows in my life, but I also can’t afford to change things up all the time.  But I digress.  A friend asked me to give some ideas on what to do for accent pillows.  I thought about it in terms of the different types of pillows that could be used to add a pop of color or some needed detail to a room.  Here is some of what I found:

If your style is traditional: Monogrammed pillows might be a great choice to add some style and depth to a room while still blending with your sophisticated taste.

If your style is classic: Stripes or chevron are always in style and right now there are tons of options to choose from. If you want to be bold there are lots of color choices at the moment or you can keep it more conservative with navy or grey.

If you want to add something trendy: As we all know trends come and go so using accent pieces to capture a trend is a great way to add style to a room without breaking the bank and can easily be swapped out when the next big thing comes along.  Love ikat at the moment, this is one trend I hope sticks around for a long time!

If you’re going for quirky: I love the idea of adding style with something different and unexpected. I think these pillows are stylish, functional and conversation pieces in and of themselves.
