Decorate with Accents : Accent Pillows
Now that spring is finally here and your inner decorator is calling to freshen up the look of your home where would you start, what would be the easiest and inexpensive way to update the look of any room?
Decorative Pillows. They can add beautiful accents to your home without the need of breaking the bank.
Shopping for accent pillows might get quite overwhelming as they come in different shapes and sizes, colours and patterns, with or without embroideries and appliques.
Here it is a couple of tips on what you would need to consider.
Try to have at least 2 pillows on an item of furniture and make them different as it adds variety and interest. Contrasting mix of elements always help create a unique looking room.
Pattern is important especially against a solid color sofa or an accent chair. When you are mixing different pillows, change up the scale of the pattern, i.e. if one has a small intricate pattern the other one needs to have a bold large pattern or none at all. This contrast will allow each pattern to stand out better on its own.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with bright colours and bold patterns. At least they can be changed in and out with an ease. And most importantly – have fun while doing this!
