Interior redecorating on a budget

Throw pillows

If you’re like me you get can get bored with the decor in a room very quickly.  A lot of us will put off doing anything about it because we think it will be a huge project with lots of expense.  You’ve got to paint, get new lamps, change the drapes, get a new rug and the list goes on.  Trust me I know, it took me 9 months to order curtains for our living room.  New humans are created in less time!  But I think I’ve got a solution that won’t break your budget and will hold you over until you have the time, money and energy to do a total room makeover

The secret: throw pillows!

Here are pictures of some combinations that we put together to show how quickly the look and feel of a room can change with a few pillows.

The average cost of a throw pillow in Home Goods or Ross is only about $12.50, sometimes less if you can snag a few from the clearance isle.  So, we’re talking $50.00-$60.00 to change the look of a room!  If you have the budget you can grab a new throw blanket for about $20.00 and you’re really changing it up!

Designer tip: mix things up a bit.  Your pillows don’t have to match perfectly.  Choose a color scheme (3-4 coordinating colors) that will fit in with your current decor.  Then look for pillows with different prints and textures to add drama and depth.  Try two of the same print and mix three that are different but similar in color.  The more fun you have the bigger the statement will be.
