When people ask me how they can spruce up their room quickly, I always suggest making some pillows. Pillows are a very inexpensive and colorful way to add colors, shapes and texture to your home—especially if you make them yourself.
Pillows soften the lines of contemporary furniture and add splashes of color where needed. One of the best features of using pillows in decorating is that they are a good way to change your decorating schemes on a whim—and on a budget.
Think beyond having pillows match your decor. Consider using customized pillows to celebrate events or holidays. There are so many theme fabrics to choose from, you are certain to find fabric that interests you.
If you are thinking about learning to sew, pillows are the perfect place to start.
More tips on making pillows can be found in Donna’s new book, Decorating Sewlutions: Learn to Sew as You Decorate Your Home.
