Where and How to Toss the Throw Pillows
I am often thinking about how to help people who are suffering from design paralysis. After convincing them that decorating is NOT an exact science and that they do have their own personal style, I immediately steer them toward throw pillows. Throw pillows may just be the easiest way in the world to put your own stamp on your space. They can add any kind of punch you want to an otherwise neutral room, or keep things neutral if that's the way you want to go. They are don't require a lot of commitment, there are a ton of inexpensive options (especially if you are handy with a sewing machine), and you can switch out covers seasonally to give your house a different feel in a matter of seconds. I only have ONE RULE: Do not give them the karate chop - what in the world is that about?
