Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).

The way you use these brighter pieces is as an accent in a room that is more traditionally dressed. This means if you have a room that is painted white, with black furniture, you would choose one area of the room to add an explosion of color. This could be a bright accent table or chair on one side of the room that gives the entire space a splash color and brings it to life.
