We often talk about accent features and things that add color to your home’s décor and make it stand out from all other home decors. These things include items such as lamps, artwork and, most often, pillows. Throw pillows are commonly used to spice up the interior décor in a room. They give character to the space and they are often the element that connects the whole décor and makes it feel complete.
But using accent pillows is not exactly easy. You can’t just throw them randomly on the sofa and expect the room to instantly look better. You need to pay attention to all sorts of details. For example, you need to think of the color scheme for your interior décor. It doesn’t involve just the pillows and the other accent features but the whole room and everything in it.
When you think of colors, there are two options you could choose from. One would be to choose throw pillows that have similar colors with those used throughout the rest of the room and the other would be to choose something completely different that would instantly make the pillows stand out from everything else. Remember the three main shades: the primary or the main color which is used for the walls, the secondary color which is used for the furniture and other large elements and the accent color used for things like the pillows.
Aside from the color, you also need to think of the pattern when you choose throw pillows.You can mix patterns for a more dynamic effect or you can them to make a very simple design or color stand out.Strong geometric patterns are always interesting to look at. They work well in modern and contemporary spaces. When you use a bold pattern, the color tends to fall on second place. It’s best to opt for either one or the other. A strong color combined with a bold pattern can be too much.
Floral patterns are also very popular. They have been used for a long time now and they always adapt to the style currently used and the influences.Floral patterns are often associated with a more rustic or vintage décor so you could use this detail to your advantage when you’re decorating in order t create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in the room.
Pattern and solid mix.
When using multiple patterns, it would be best to also use the same color palette for all the pillows. You can use as many patterns as you like as long as the common denominator is color.
