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).

Home accents are the things such as bookcases, magazine racks, storage, shelving, storage cabinets, jewelry amoires, pillows, mirrors, coat racks, clocks, wall arts, accent tables and many more. These pieces will transform a dry, dull and lifeless home into something alive, vibrant and chic. Most homeowners would just buy furniture and would usually forget to put the right accent that goes with them. A sofa set needs the right centrepiece on its center table.

A contemporary bathroom can also be transformed with a new look when it has the right accents such as a mirror and a decorative wall art.
