Decorating with pillows may seem like a small part of the design process, but that couldn't be further from the truth. They're the best way to elevate a house to a home. When it comes to living room seating, benches and pretty much anything in the bedroom, adding a throw pillow will pack a ton of punch and bring out the subtle design features of the space.

In order to tackle the full potential of these decorative do-gooders, we've rounded up few tips that will make the styling process a lot easier.

1. Pick an Anchor Color

If there's a piece of furniture in you room that brings in a pop of color, make sure the rest of the room highlights it without outshining it.

2. Mix and match Prints

By mixing and matching styles and prints, you'll keep the eye engaged.

3. Play with Proportion and Shape

Talk about eye-catching. When you deconstruct the room and break down the design elements of each item, it's hard to imagine how they all work together so well. Don't shy away from experimenting and never underestimate the power of a cushion.

4. Think about Symmetry

Once you've got all the right pillows, you should also spend some time thinking about how you'd like to display them to get the most out of their decor potential. If you like the look of assymetry, try an arrangement that looks random and effortless.


5. Stay Neutral

Comfort should be prioritized over style when it comes to decorating a bedroom. It should be inspiring and calming. If bright colors overwhelm you, you can still show your personality with things like texture, wall art, material and shape.


6. Experiment with Texture

Fun texture makes the perfect way to achieve an aesthetic outside color, print and shape elements. Pair for example a faux fur cushion with a throw to create a cozy atmosphere.
