Solid Pillow Covers

Solid Pillows

Love your living room sofa, but feel like it needs a bit of pizzazz? Give your couch the style it deserves with new pillow covers from Williams-Sonoma. Regardless of your style or preferences concerning material, you are sure to find covers that transform your couch into a show piece.


When it is time to pick out new solid pillow covers, give some thought as to what hues will complement the existing decor in your living room. If your living room contains a lot of neutral tones, practically any color will look amazing in your space. Go for bright hues, such as red or violet, to make a statement. Your style may call for more muted hues. Various shades of gray and khaki work well for a more conservative space.


As you search through pillow covers, check that possible colors and designs look well next to your other pieces, such as your rug. For example, if your rug boasts a detailed pattern, pillow covers that have one solid hue do not distract from the rug’s design. Conversely, if your rug is a solid color, pick pillows that incorporate a border into the design for a pleasant contrast. If you can’t decide between a solid colored pillow cover or one with a design, compromise by picking a pillow with a single tone that incorporates panels into its style.


On a chilly night, there are few things more satisfying than curling up with a soft, cozy throw blanket. However, cuddling up next to a fuzzy pillow in addition to your favorite throw takes the experience to the next level. Throw pillows feature a variety of gorgeous materials. For optimal comfort, look for a furry lambswool pillow cover or a silken cashmere cover. Other delightful fabric options include suede, cotton and crushed velvet. There are some covers that even combine multiple fabrics for a trendy appearance. Cashmere pillows with leather inlays are an example of such a chic combo. Homes with pets or small children may need to regularly launder the pillow covers to keep them looking their best. If keeping your pillow covers in pristine condition is a concern, look for materials that you can wash at home.


One important thing to decide is if you want to cover your existing pillows or if you prefer to invest in new pillow inserts. Pillow inserts are basically a blank slate; just put one inside of the pillow cover to give it the flair you crave. When using your existing inserts, measure the insert to ensure that you pick the appropriately sized pillow cover.


Both pillow covers and inserts come in a number of different sizes and shapes. Some of the most common alternatives are the square and rectangle. Mix the two shapes together for a display that combines these two popular options. Play around with different combinations and layouts to find a pillow display that looks smashing in your living room.


Even though pillows are a terrific way to improve the aesthetic appeal of your home, they are also functional. Some use their occasional chair or couch to work, study, read or craft. Make sure that your back has the support it needs with a lumbar pillow. Lumbar pillows are designed to appropriately support the body and promote good posture. However, functional does not have to equal drab. After finding a pillow that works well with your back, dress it in a lovely pillow cover.


Another characteristic to take into account is possible details for your throw pillows. Some pillow covers come embellished with decorations, such as tassels, buttons and fringe. If you are on the fence about an embellished pillow cover, try incorporating the pillow with plain pieces. The embellished pillow adds a special touch to your living room furniture without overwhelming the room.
