I may be cautious about committing to bold and bright wall colors or upholstery patterns but when it comes to pillows I am downright uninhibited. Having fun with pillows is one of the easiest and most gratifying ways to play with color and style.
Throw pillows are usually affordable and easily interchanged or re-covered with the changing seasons and your evolving aesthetics. Rather than get too matchy-matchy with your pillows, why not throw caution to the wind and mix them up, pile them high and imbue your couch with a bounty of different colors, textures and patterns.
