Throw Pillows

Fashion is not the only arena in which matchy-matchy can cross over into visually unappealing territory. Yes, a room’s paint, furniture and decor should coordinate, but a little variety is always welcome, and an easy way to do so is by using throw pillows. As the name indicates, they can literally be tossed anywhere for a pop of color, and expression of emotion or just for fun. Few items of such small stature have such a dramatic effect.
