A throw pillow can transform your space decoration and deliver bold statement. If you want to add a modern look, go for an odd number and using a limited color palette and large geometric prints on smooth, tightly woven fabrics; linen and cotton. But if you like to have lots of colors, pull them from a piece of art that’s in the room. Traditional trim is okay to add interest but retain a solid block of color.
For the traditional look, add two or four large pillows arranged on either side of a sofa that will impact a sense of symmetry and order. Use velvet and silk and layering a variety of textures, patterns and colors to keep things lively. Save the big trim; tassel fringe – for large pillows. Small pillows will look best with slim trim like cord and braid.
