Are you looking for a way to freshen up your house with a new look for summer? For a quick and easy makeover that is also affordable, throw pillows are the perfect answer! By switching out your accent pillows you can easily introduce a new color palette to each room in your house. Here are some tips to consider when making the switch:
Colors: Begin by choosing colors that suit the season. For summer, pick a bright fresh accent color that will lighten up each room. Lime green, fresh yellow, bold pinks and bright oranges will breathe a breath of fresh air into any room. Choose a color that will complement your existing window treatments and furnishings.
If you have patterned drapes you can select a bright and bold solid found in them for the pillows. If your window treatments are a solid color, choose a summery colored pattern for the pillows. Don’t be afraid to mix and match solids and prints for added interest.
Patterns: Decorative accent pillows are eye-catching accessories that can immediately transform a room. When choosing the fabric, match it to the season as well. Shimmery solids can be light and airy. Cottons and linens are as fresh as summertime and big bold floral patterns will add stylish interest and flair.
Textures: From fluffy to sparkling to trimmed with fringes, texture adds another element to the perfect combination of accent pillows. Pick a focal point in your collection by including a decorative pillow that feels extra special.
Sizes: Pillow groupings are almost as important as each pillow is individually. Keep it interesting by mixing shapes and sizes. Combine solids and patterns or even hues to add interest. Groupings work best in odd number combinations.
You’ll have a great time arranging them and can even change up the combinations now and then to introduce a different look to the room without spending a thing!
By substituting throw pillows as the seasons change, you can bring the outdoors in and your friends and family will marvel at your redecorating skills!
