Placing decorative accent pillows on top of even the oldest couch can add not only to its looks, but also to is comfort. Pillows can be blended in with the color of the room or used in contrast to it for a bolder look. Pillows can actually replace couches and chairs when needed. Too many people showed up for the movie night? Just bring out the pillows and everyone is happy.
This is an optional consideration and doesn't apply to many modern pillow varieties. If your decor is based on a traditional Victorian theme then you will undoubtedly opt for aubusson style pillows that are full of tassels and flared edges with trim to spare. Fringes definitely give the pillows more impact and for this reason you will want to use slim small edges on smaller pillows and limit the amount of large throws with big bold tassels and trim.
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.
