All About Pillows
Pillows can be easily changed throughout the seasons. Purchase a simple pillow and add an appliqué to it. A leaf can represent fall, a snowflake for winter, green leafs for spring and flowers for summer. It can be as simple as cutting out a shape of a leaf and sewing it to the middle of a pillow.
Embellishing a plain, one color pillow is also easy with trims. Buy a trim and sew it to the face of the pillow in geometric patterns, like stripes or diamonds. If you like the pillow's pattern as is and just want to add a special touch to it, put the trim around the edge of the pillow.
Decorative pillows have more impact when they are in a group. You can arrange different combinations of colors, textures and patterns to find a mixture that you like.
Texture is a great element when it comes to decorative pillows. Try mixing a silk pillow and a chenille pillow with silk bow. Matte and shiny can create a very interesting combination.
A unique pillow set should have your personal style in it. Decorate your pillows with such embellishments as trims, buttons, bows, appliqués, fringes, broaches, fur and anything else you can think of. It will make any room have a one of a kind decor.
Shapes of pillows can be mixed around for fun. Put a round pillow between two square ones, or an oblong one between two rectangles. You can repeat these shapes in other decor elements for a unified look.
