Styling Your Winter Throw Pillows
Winter throw pillows are just one of the many easy ways to make your home cozy this winter. Here are some tips for styling winter throw pillows at home!
In the living room, cluster pillows of varying textures and patterns on the sofa for the ultimate cozy escape. Try materials like velvet, cable knit, faux fur, tartan plaid, etc. Add pillows in rich, saturated colors like deep reds, greens, and blues. These colors evoke the colors of the holidays.
Incorporate pillows with seasonal symbols like Christmas trees, snowflakes, reindeer, and forests. These can be more whimsical and playful. Balance out patterns with solid pillows in creams, whites, and grays. This creates a cohesive look.
Flank each end of the sofa with a larger winter throw pillow for a decorator look. Place smaller decorative pillows in front of the main pillows. Vary the different shapes and sizes.
Drape chunky knit or faux fur blankets over the arm or back of sofas. Fold and display them neatly when not in use.
Here’s an example of throw pillowed used in a Farmhouse winter living room styling.
In the bedroom, opt for pillows in calming colors like icy blues, silvers, and soft greens. Continue to layer textures. Accent the room with a pillow or two in a printed holiday pattern, like snowflakes or poinsettias.
Embellish the bed with a fluffy faux fur throw at the foot. Choose white or cream for a snowy look. Lean some stacked decorative pillows against the headboard for a cozy vignette.
Flank bedside tables with winter-inspired pillows in place of regular ones. Set a chair or bench at the foot of the bed with a fur pillow and wintery blanket.
The key is to mix up fabrics, colors and patterns for an inviting winter look that feels both festive and elegant. Have fun and get creative with your pillow styling!
