Pillows are an inexpensive and easy way to change the look and feel of a room. We have a fabulous dealer who sells amazing custom designed and handmade pillows, when you are in the shop next time be sure to browse his selection. We wanted to share with you three easy ways to decorate with pillows – try them this weekend!

1. Add Color to a Neutral Room
If you have a neutral sofa and neutral painted walls adding a bunch of color coordinated pillows can totally change your space. By bringing color into the room using pillows and small accessories, it gives you the option to easily change your color scheme and look. We recommend using several shades of one or two colors, like the orange and pink pillows on the beige sofa above.

2. Coordinate Existing Pieces
Pictured above is a bright yellow bedside table and on the bed are two bright yellow pillows, one a pattern and one a solid. Pillows can really help you pull together color elements in a room and create a cohesive look.

3. Fill Empty Space with Pillows
Sometimes you might find an blank space in a room, not big enough for a piece of furniture but big enough that it feels empty. Stacked pillows are a great way to fill that space, you’ll see pictured above pillows stacked next to a fireplace. It warms up the space and gives it a nice texture.

These are just three easy ideas to get you inspired to decorate with pillows. For more inspiration, check out our Pinterest board. As always, we welcome you ideas in action – if you have a spot in your home you’ve decorated with pillows, we’d love to see it! Email it to us at
