No longer are the pillows limited to a square or rectangular shape. There are round, tubular, triangle and many other shapes to choose from. Luxury decorative pillows today can come in sets as well. You can get luxury decorative pillows in sets of two, seven and more. They can be used to decorate your living room to give it a chic style with out much effort. There are luxury decorative garments that can go with any living room set. Not only do they look great but they can be comfortable as well.
First off, decide what size you'd like your pillow to be. Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.
When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or "busy" decorative item.
