The Holy Grail of Decorating, the Throw Pillow
We decorators are always telling our clients how easy it is to breathe new life into that “beige neutral” sofa simply by switching out throw pillows.
I admit, a group of new fabric pillows in beautiful colors can give your sofa a totally different feel, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to go through all of the thousands of great throw pillows out there in every shade and size imaginable to find 4 or 5 that will work well for on the sofa. There’s a huge selection out there, which makes the process overwhelming! But I’d like to make things easier for you. Keep these 5 tips in mind while choosing the right throw pillows for your sofa.
