Throw pillows come in an endless variety. I tend to keep to more neutral colors and instead opt for texture to bring warmth into a space. Think rich colored leathers, thick, cozy knits and smooth velvets.

Patterns can be a great way to bring character to a space. When considering patterns, stick to simpler prints like minimalistic stripes, herringbone, plaid or buffalo checks. 

When considering arrangements for your bed, there are lots of great options that utilize one to three pillows. Let’s start with three pillows. In this setup you'll want to center the pillows in one of two manners: the first being two throw pillows in the back and one in the front or three pillows neatly ordered in a line.

Next up, we have two throw pillows. In this scenario you'll want one centered in front of each of your bed/sleeping pillows.

The last and easiest of the approaches, is the one and done! This must be an epic pillow- an oversized lumbar pillow to be exact. This is a bold statement and a breeze when it comes to making your bed. If you have a queen bed, you may be able to get away with a smaller lumbar pillow.
