Decorative Pillow Guide: Indoor Throw Pillows

Decorative Pillow Guide

Fun throw pillows are an easy way to add color and texture to the home. Whether you’re looking for accent pillows for the bedroom or living room, this decorative pillow guide has something for everything. With finds from Anthropologie, Rifle Paper Co., West Elm, Crate & Barrel, and more, these pieces are high quality classic finds, perfect for wherever you want to lounge.

I’ve split up this decorative pillow guide into four sections. First, striped and geometric accent pillows; second, solid color throw pillows. Next, minimal and decorative pillows, and, lastly, floral and boho throw pillows.

Striped & Geometric Accent Pillows

Striped or geometric-based throw pillows are a great option if you want more monochrome without going for a solid pillow. The decorative pillows here are primarily single-toned, except for the Embroidered Mixed Side Stripe Pillow Cover and the Rosamund Indoor/Outdoor Pillow. I particularly like the Silk Mini Stripe Pillow on the bottom left, because you can mix and match colors to make a unique set.

Solid Color Couch Pillows

You can’t go wrong with solid color decorative pillows, especially when you consider the different textures available. From velvet to soft corduroy, cotton to linen blends, these sofa pillows add color and texture without taking over your overall motif.

Minimal Decorative Accent Pillows

Personally, I find that I gravitate mostly towards the minimally decorative accent pillows. They have a bit more texture and pattern than the previous sections, but are still fairly subtle. Of this section, I particularly love the Rifle Paper Co. options (including the pet themed one which I, of course, had to include). Besides the pet pillow, I am most drawn to the pink Tapestry Embroidered Pillow and Trellis Embroidered Pillow, both of which are available in other colors.

Floral & Boho Throw Pillows

Last but not least: floral boho throw pillows! The floral patterns here are bolder than, say, the Monstera Embroidered Pillow above, and come in richer tones. For example, this Granada Pillow Cover is a vibrant option for sofa pillows, full of deep tones and texture. Of this section, I am really drawn to this Fringed Jules Pillow, though, which is far brighter than I normally gravitate towards. But, I don’t know, something about the pattern and color just really calls my name!

Which style of decorative throw pillow is your favorite here? There are so many great options; I really love the Embroidered Mixed Side Stripe Pillow Cover from Crate & Barrel and the Fringed Jules Pillow from Anthropologie!
