The ultimate finishing touch to any room is a decorative pillow.  Pillows provide comfort, color and style to sofas, chairs, floors and beds.  They are versatile decorating tools that infuse a room with a spot of bright color or pattern, and sometimes even humor.  Using decorative pillows as part of your design project completes the look and provides that extra something special.

When you want to add a touch of color to a room, pillows are the perfect tool.  Use them to complement the existing interior colors or provide a bit of punch by accenting with contrasting colors.  Use different shades of the same color for a monochromatic room or choose vibrantly patterned pillows to give a room extra punch.

When using decorative pillows, pile them on!  Group pillows together in sets or line the back of a sofa with them. Use one shape and size along the back of the sofa and then place smaller, more decorative pillows in front for a full look.
