Recently I read from the Wall Street Journal an article on throw pillows, titled "Throw Pillows, A to Z". It was an entertaining read and very informative. It started with a light-hearted note, "THROW PILLOWS aren't suitable for actual throwing, except in heated moments." Here are some tips:
  • Do not clutter a couch with too many pillows of the same size.
  • Do not use over stuffed throw pillows. You don't want to be repelled by your throw pillows.
  • Try to make your throw pillows as un-generic as possible. Combine your throw pillows with big and small patterns.
  • Do not pair your throw pillows which are made of equally heavy fabrics. It may start to look like a rug sample sale.
  • Do use color's rules of attraction for your throw pillows, like reds with greens, blues with oranges, yellows with purples.
  • Don't use identically sized square pillows when layering. Instead, place a smaller pillow like a lumbar pillow in front of the larger anchor pillow. Snug in a round pillow will make a great difference. Just don't overdo it.
  • If you have a throw pillow that has a lot of character, feature it alone on a chair. Don't mix it into a sofa with other pillows. 
  • Do not put a solid color throw pillow in front of a pattern one, unless it were a solid-colored fur or some heavy material. 
Throw pillows are like makeup - the right lipstick can make you look chipper.
