Accessorizing with Pillows {with DIY Pillow Tutorials}

October 24, 2012

There’s no doubt about it.  Throw pillows can add a punch of pizzazz to any space.  Here’s some that I love and pinned on my Pinterest boards:

That shot of dark stripey fabric on the pillows is a nice contrast to the white and aqua tones.  Just a little of it looks so nice!



Mixing and layering different fabric prints can look both classy and casual.


Pillows can help add pops of accent colors in an otherwise neutral colored room.  I just love the soft green pillow on that white chair.

Pillows require only a small amount of fabric.  So, if you are someone with a little DIY spirit and basic sewing knowledge, you can whip yourself up some for a small price.

I’ve done a few pillow tutorials over the years:
