Pillow Talk: Transform Your Home in One Weekend

By • 4 years ago with no replies yet

If you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive way to instantly transform any room in your home, we have one word for you: pillows. These vastly underutilized design weapons are a powerful way to make a big impact, with relatively little time, money and effort.

Our love affair with pillows began years ago—but we’re especially fond of our current selection of plush, lush, no-fuss throws. With so many shapes and sizes (nine to be exact), plus colors and patterns to choose from, you can start your pillow revolution right here. Check out these unexpected ways to add a little pizzazz with pillows.

The Living Room

Just because your sofa came with a designated set of matching, monochromatic pillows, doesn’t mean you have to use them. Give your living room a quick facelift by swapping out a few (or all) of your sofa pillows.

Zazzle tip: Use an odd number of pillows and create a mixed “pillowscape.” Try a matching pair of square throws for each end and a rectangle-shaped one for the middle of the couch. Then, add a little flair with two round statement pillows that are slightly different, yet complimentary.

The Bedroom

Create a bed so inviting, you’ll want to dive right in. The bedroom is also an ideal place to commemorate a wedding date or pay homage to your honeymoon destination with personalized pillows. This is another place to mix and match shapes, sizes and patterns.

Nursery, Kid’s Room or Playroom

One or two bright, cheerful pillows can add a personalized touch to a nursery, kid’s room or playroom and help bring a color story or theme full circle. Place pillows on rockers, gliders, storage benches, the bed or crib (if you place a pillow in the crib, just be sure to remove the pillow when baby’s sleeping).

Here and There

Just look around—every chair, chaise lounge and bench is an opportunity to get plucky with pillows. Unlike more permanent, long-term choices like paint, furniture and fixtures, pillows can be changed as the seasons or your tastes change. The best part? All of Zazzle’s pillow cases are machine washable. You’re welcome.
