How to use throw pillows to enhance your decor

If you love the bold prints and colors that are hot right now in home decorating but are afraid to commit, start with some cool throw pillows. Pillows are relatively inexpensive and can be changed out easily. They are great accessories to use to try out new decorating ideas that you aren’t completely sure will suit your style

It’s amazing how much a single pillow can change an entire room. Throw pillows add color or brightness in dark or neutral rooms, and sometimes they can pull various colors and designs together. They can also redefine a space depending on where you put them.

Throw pillows placed along the back of a day bed create seating. Move them to one side of the day bed an you have a sleeping area. Create seating in a breakfast nook or on a bench with some pillows against the wall. Larger pillows on the floor make seating in kids’ rooms for watching television or playing video games.

Pillows are powerful in your decor. One pillow in a chair can be a focal point in a room. It can pull together divergent colors and styles. It can reflect your personality with a perfect rose or retro print.

Bedrooms are the place to go wild with pillows. Put a couple of throw pillows up against your pillow shams for a whole new look. Or scatter various shapes and sizes across your guest room bed to provide extra comfort for your visitors.

Start with choosing a great pattern. You can go with an animal print or a hot tribal design, or consider a cool landscape or even your favorite animal. Pull colors out of the patterned pillow and add additional pillows with those colors.

One trend is to not be too obsessed with matching bedding. Don’t afraid to have pillows shams that aren’t exact replicas of your comforter. Look for a coordinating pattern or contrasting color to add some interest to your bedroom.

Put a plastic storage bin under your bed to stow the throw pillows if you don’t use them while you sleep. It’s also a great place to keep an extra throw or blanket handy if you get chilly at night. This is a must for beds that have six or more pillows. Or have a hamper in your closet that can be used solely for pillow storage.

With your sofa, you can go traditional by putting two pillows at either end. Put the smaller of the two pillows in the front. Or, for a more modern look, place a pillow on the back of each cushion facing the room. On long sofas, you can arrange the pillows layered at an angle across the back.

How to redo a guest room on a budget

If your guest room is in desperate need of a redo you don’t have to break the bank. With a few tricks, paint, and some new bedding, you can create a whole new look for less than $500.

A guest room needs to be a place where your houseguests can relax and have some privacy. No matter what your decor, a vase with some fresh-cut flowers, a few chocolates on the bedside table or a power station for their electronics are great touches. Your goal is to make the room as comfortable as possible.

If you live in a vacation destination like the beach or the mountains, you might want to consider outfitting your guest room in a theme that reflects the nearby sites. Go with tropical island bedding or with a beach sunset rug if you live on the coast. Go green and rustic in mountain communities. If you live in a city, consider a glittering nighttime cityscape blanket for the end of the bed.

As far as colors go, soothing is a good choice. Blues and greens will make your in-laws completely forget about the flight from hell. Ever dream of an all-white bedroom? It may not be practical for every day, but pure white linens and walls will give your guest room a fresh, breezy look that inspires relaxation.

Often the guest room is the smallest bedroom in your home. Small rooms are always a decorating challenge, but they don’t have to be. Go double duty with the furniture. A low chest of drawers can double as a bedside table. Using the same color paint on the walls and on the furniture can make the room look bigger, too.

Make sure there are some pops of color in your serene room to give it some interest. You can do this with a great rug. If the room is small, consider a round rug halfway under the bed. It will give the room an open, airy feeling. Or recycle your old sofa pillows with throw pillow covers that have pretty florals or great nautical motifs.

Forgo the seating. Your guests have the rest of the house to sit in, and they will primarily only get dressed and sleep in your guest room. Do provide a lot of pillows on the bed, however, to give them comfort if they want to read or catch up on their email in bed. You can add some interest by having more than one bed pillow. Double or triple the number, giving each set a new pillow sham.

Provide some storage. Make sure there is room in the closet or under the bed for their luggage. Leave a dresser drawer empty and some nice hangers with room in the closet. Many people make the guest room a catch-all for holiday decor and other things they don’t use every day. Clear it out to the garage or to storage so that your guests have room for their things.

Guest rooms can be an oasis for the traveler. You can create that haven for them with a little effort and a not a lot of money.

Easter home decorating ideas

Easter is the time where spring seems to start in earnest. After a long winter, decorating your home for the holiday is a great way to incorporate some pretty spring colors and themes. Whether you add some Easter touches to your decor or go all out by decorating your entire home for the season, the trend to bring out the bunnies and eggs is here to stay.

The primary accessory that is a must-have for Easter is a fabulous wreath. Hang it on a door or to accent a wall in your home. Spring flowers like hydrangeas, lilies, and roses are great florals for a wreath, or you can go with the pastel eggs and bunnies. For a bit of whimsy, make one out of Peeps, the brightly colored marshmallow bunnies and chicks. Buy one already created or make your own with plastic eggs and a grapevine wreath.

Another popular accessory for Easter decor is a tree. Similar to a Christmas tree, the Easter tree often has pastel eggs dangling from its bare branches. You can create a more dramatic look with jeweled eggs, too. Some decorators are repurposing small and even large Christmas trees and decorating them with pastel eggs and garlands.

Brighten up your living room with bunny throw pillows on your sofa or in a chair. Sweet bunnies and eggs are quintessential Easter decorations. If you prefer to focus more on the religious significance of the holiday, choose classic Christian images, including lambs, the cross with a crown of thorns or lilies.

More and more holiday lovers are decorating their guest bedrooms or even the master suite with bedding, rugs, and wall art that celebrates the season. If you want to try the theme without being too committed, get a bunny or chick throw for the bottom of your bed. Or choose some pretty Easter egg throw pillows to coordinate with your current bedding.

For those who are all in, great comforters, duvet covers, pillow shams and more are available in cool designs. Look for great pastel prints or the traditional bunny and egg design. Bedroom decor is also a great place to display wall art to inspire you in your faith, so consider a great cross gallery wrap or framed poster in your prayer and meditation space.

The dining area is also a place to go wild with the Easter theme. Table runners and centerpieces are a must for your family dinner. If small children are coming, the rabbit and egg theme is appropriate, but if your family has moved past the Easter bunny stage, go a little more sophisticated with moss rabbits and hand-painted eggs in pretty prints.

Consider putting an Easter-themed rug under your dining table. Choose a field of gorgeous yellow daffodils or a bevy of bunnies. A rug is an unexpected touch in holiday decor and is certain to draw some “oohs” and “ahs” from your guests.

Celebrate spring with Easter decor. It’s appropriate from any time after Valentine’s Day until the end of April, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it!

But when it comes to your bedroom, go all out. It gives your personal retreat the feel of an enchanted English cottage in you have antique furnishings.

Or update your throw pillows with covers instead of buying complete new ones. These are the tricks of budget-savvy decorators. They also save space in your garage or attic.
