Decorative Throw Pillows
Different, Distinctive, Decorative Pillows
Our collection of decorative throw pillows and cushions is eclectic. But why not? There are no rules. You can change the look of your decorative throw pillows to match the season. As Dorothy Draper said, "Decorating Can Be Fun." That's a wonderful approach to take. Draper did not take things like furniture or decorative throw pillows too seriously. Her mother was aghast when she painted her heirloom antique furniture white. But Dorothy had an instinct for decorating ideas. See our Decorative Fabrics if you want to do the whole sofa. In the meantime, freshen up with some decorative throw pillows or even just throw pillow covers.

|Make your decorative throw pillows interesting and a reflection of your life. For example, if you like animals, toss animal print decorative throw pillows on your couch. If you're a sailor, try some nautical pillows. Although he was known for his great clean looks, the great American decorator Billy Baldwin liked to see "a room with objects all over the place." In his book, Billy Baldwin Decorates, the decorator, described his approach to decorative accessories like decorative throw pillows in a philosophical way. Baldwin admired his clients who collected things over the years that were meaningful to them: souvenirs from their travels, gifts from their friends, paintings and other art from their favorite designers. Think of decorative throw pillows as part of your home decor collection.|
What Baldwin did not like was clients who went out and bought instant collections to fill a room. Take your time with choosing decorative throw pillows for couch pillows, sofa pillows or bedroom pillows. These decorating choices are totally personal and enjoyable to make. Pick a decorative throw pillow with your favorite kind of dog, one made of a special textile design, with colors that you love, or with the flag of one of the countries you like to visit. Take a chance. If you make a mistake and don't like the decorative throw pillows you pick once you place them in your rooms, they are not so hard to change. You may buy decorative pillows and find they work in multiple places in your living room or in a completely different room than you intended.
