What color throw pillows or decor to give color?

November 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
So my husband bought a new sectional and now I have no clue what color throw pillows, curtains or decor I can use? I wanted some color in the room...? Also-we are in the process of painting window trim white and walls a baked scone. Thanks!

Find a rug to go under it and take the color cues from it.

Agree with above. There was a discussion elsewhere about pillows sliding off leather. Better not get anything slippery.

I read that too, chookchook. Textured pillows -here's a start!

I agree with decoenthusiaste. I think a throw would be appropriate. Especially over the area at the back near the window. Sunlight can not only bleach, but also dry and crack your leather over time. It can protect your leather as well as look attractive.

Why not consider Red, or even neutral greens. Green is so calming and deliciously attractive when done right.

Sorry-also forgot to say we purchased new carpet to lay. We just purchased this 1900s farm home and are not redoing the hardwood floors until our asthmatic 8 year old is grown. Carpet is better for asthmatics.

Karemore55- u think any random color will match? I'm afraid this couch will clash with a lot of colors...?

I agree about the pillows slipping off the leather because I have silk covered pillows on mine and they are always slipping.

Thiemefamily, Your sofa and wall colors are so neutral I can't think of a color that wouldn't work! Pick your faves! I assume the new carpet will be a neutral color also?

The couch is material-top part is leather. I think I'm worried about that clashing with things. I think if it was all material or all leather I would be worried about color/decor clashing.

Anyone know a good website to buy pillows at a descent price? We live in the country so no good stores!

If you can sew a straight line it's fun to make your own pillows. Good use for grandma's old bloomers for stuffing. Waste not want not and take a hanky dear. Good use for grandma's old hankys.

Amen, chookchook2, looking for pillows at Pottery Barn and Etsy, it would appear that you must pay $45-245 for pillows you love.

Thiemefamily, Check out tonicliving.com. They sell pillow covers and inserts separately, so if you can find the inserts locally you can just order the covers and save on shipping. Their patterns and colors are fresh and modern, and tons to choose from - TONS!

I think they're all cotton though, so you might want to get some textured pillows elsewhere to throw into the mix - it will look better that way.

Those are very nice pillows Rugsville.com you could get your rug from them too thiemefamily. The question is, what colors would you like for your livingroom and what style are you leaning towards?

How about adding a mohair throw blanket, either in neutrals, or bold for a splash of color. Either of these would work well (from our Check range http://mohairsandmore.com/plaid-throws-check-blankets/). You could then pick our some colors for throw cushions.
