Pillow Talk

Posted by | 0 comments

I’ve recently received a few questions about changing a home’s decor seasonally. I know, I know — decorating magazines will tell you to change the slip covers on your furniture, change your curtains, even change your rugs at the start of each new season.

For most of us, that’s just not realistic. Not enough time and not enough money.

But the idea certainly is on target. In general, warmer weights, textures and colors are great for a cozy winter feel and lighter weight materials, colors and open, airy textures make you feel like a cool breeze is blowing across the room. So how can you make a quick change without spending too much time and money? For me, pillows take on that role beautifully.  I’m actually a little pillow-crazy.  They can add a pop of color, tie various room elements together, make a dull room interesting and an interesting room spectacular.

Buy several standard pillow forms for your couch, bed — wherever you want them — and then change the covers seasonally. Or purchase a spring/summer set of pillows and a fall/winter set if storage space is not a problem. You will be amazed at the difference it can make in a room.

For inspiration, take a look at the pillows below.

Love the fall colors and the contrasting textures!
