Floral Delight

With the warm months almost here, it is time for two things in my house. We always go through the closets and purge a lot of stuff we do not need or want anymore. After we have made some room in the house, I get to do a little decorating. This year we had to redecorate in Caitlin’s room as she was in dire need of a new comforter and curtains. The next room for me to tackle is the living room. I have not done a lot to it in the last few years and it is in need of a little face lift. Adding decorative throw pillows is always affordable and easy to do. I am never sure what kind to get, what size, color and all of that pillow stuff. I decided to check into what tips I could find to help me make the right choices. Here are some great ones:

  • Size: he average throw pillow is between 16-18″x16-18″, but that is for a larger sofa or chair. If you have a smaller sofa or a smaller chair like a small side chair, you will want to scale down the size of the pillow.
  • Filling: There are usually 3 types of filling for pillows: feather, foam, or a synthetic mix. Down pillows are the most comfortable and are the squishiest, but are also more expensive. The other fillers will maintain the shape of the pillow, but are not as comfortable.
  • Number of Pillows: The rule of thumb is to always go for an odd number of pillows. The best way to know how many is again about the size of the piece of furniture. For a small chair, choose 1 pillow while a love seat may get 2 and a larger sofa may need 5.
  • Patterns and Colors:This is one area that most people get tripped up. For a large sofa, you may want to choose 2 solid pillows for the ends that contrast with the color of the sofa. In the middle, you may want to use an odd shaped pillow in a pattern that would pull in the color of the furniture. Do not be afraid to mix stripes with plaids or a floral with a gingham. No matter the color, amount, size or filling you choose, you want to buy your pillows from a company that knows about pillows. One of the leaders in the industry who is known for their enormous selection and quality is Pillow Decor.

Simple Rules When Choosing Decorative Throw Pillows

Simple Rules When Choosing Decorative Throw Pillows

Once I decided on the colors and sizes I wanted for my pillows, the next step was to find the right one. I was thrilled to have the chance to look through the more than 1,000 beautiful pillows from Pillow Decor. Once I knew about the simple rules  when choosing decorative throw pillows, I was ready to go! I chose a really pretty beaded pillow in silk called Floral Delight for the love seat and a larger pillow called Lots of Dots for the sofa in a pretty lime green and orange dotted pattern with stunning tassels on the ends.

The pillows are really pretty and look great with our decor. They are rich in the colors and intricate beading and the stitching is amazingly well done. I could not be happier with my pillows from Pillow Decor. You can purchase the Floral Delight for $19.95 and the Lots of Dots for $29.95 on the Pillow Decor storefront on their website.

  1. In the traditional option, very little time is spent
    in actually playing the game. But today’s world
    is the world of improved technology, computer and internet and with the help
    of all the above things people have invented online casino games.
    I read a few websites and watched a few videos on You
    Tube about how to do this. Aztec’s Millions is the other RTG game with
    a jackpot over $1 million.
