Patterned Pillow Covers

Patterned Pillows

Ready to update the look of your living room, but want to do so with minimal effort? Makeover your space by covering your existing throw pillows with new patterned pillow covers from Williams-Sonoma. Just take your current pillow or insert, place it in the cover and zip it up for a fresh look. A hidden zipper lets your guests focus on the beauty of the cover, rather than the unsightly zipper. Thanks to the assortment of fabrics, patterns and shapes, it is a breeze to find pillow covers that look smashing in your home.


When you start the search for patterned pillow covers, survey your existing living room furniture to get an idea of what type of patterned pillow covers to add to your space. Some decor aspects to take into account are the fabric of your furniture, the colors and the style. For example, if your living room consists of fairly conservative hues, such as brown, gray or navy, you can make your pillows statement pieces by opting for a bold pattern. Animal print is one fun alternative that instantly adds a trendy touch to the room. Yet another terrific alternative is a geo-print pattern; this pattern is ideal for those who prefer modern themes.


Take advantage of the plethora of amazing prints and swap your covers for new ones so you have an updated look every season. In the winter months, a tartan print lends a cozy feeling to the room. Imagine relaxing in your favorite chair with a plaid pillow that looks delightful next to a roaring fire in the background. Once balmy spring days come around, swap the tartan covers for a cheerful floral print or a nautical-inspired pattern. Traditional prints, such as chevron, stripes and lattice, look fantastic any time of the year. Another option for effortlessly changing the appearance of your living room is to select reversible covers. When you feel like your living room needs a fresh look, just flip your pillows to the other side. Mix and match both sides of multiple pillow covers to enhance the look of your living space.


Patterned pillow covers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There isn’t a rule that governs what size you should use or how many of each shape belong on your sectional. Instead, use your individual tastes and preferences as a guideline. If your family suffers from back pain, rectangular lumbar pillows are a must have for your couch. A couple of square pillows are great for propping yourself up while you read or work on your latest project. For some individuals, throw pillows are intended for decorative, rather than functional purposes. Using multiple shapes and sizes to decorate creates a distinct display that turns your couch into a showroom quality piece.


The fabric of your pillow cover is another characteristic to decide on. A toasty wool cover adds cozy warmth to your home. Silk pillow covers are soft to relax on and offer a gorgeous sheen. Velvet is yet another alternative if you like pieces that appear rich and glamorous. As you decide on the material for your pillow covers, contemplate how often you’ll need to launder the covers. Pillow covers that have intricate designs or glamorous materials are often marked as dry clean only. Living rooms where snacking while on the couch is a regular occurrence may call for materials that you can launder from the comfort of your own home. When your food slides off your tray, breathe easy knowing that laundering is a breeze.


Various styles incorporate embellishments into the design. Tassels or fringe are two fun possibilities that jazz up your decor. Since a little bit of embellishment goes a long way when it comes to decorative accents, mix the patterned pillows decorated with tassels with those that boast a less intricate style.
