Using Pillows to Create Thematic Rooms

Coordinates pillows

Thematic rooms decorating is enjoying increased popularity, especially among millennials and young couples. Many people like to decorate rooms based on themes including favorite colors, books and movies, or travel destinations. Pillows are a great way to showcase these themes in a cost-effective way without taking up too much space. Today, we’ll show you how pillows can enhance a few popular decorating themes.

As the world becomes more concerned with caring for the environment, people enjoy keeping in touch with nature even indoors. A nature-themed bedroom or sitting room is one way to do so. For this type of room, you can use classics, such as pillows with floral designs, but don’t be afraid to think beyond the usual. Seek out pillows made from natural fibers, or ones that evoke nature without using specific prints. For example, choose a blue-striped pillow for an ocean-themed sunporch or sitting room. Choose pillows in sunset colors – deep orange and purple or soft pink – for a relaxing bedroom.

Old World Tradition

Many homeowners enjoy the exotic flair of themes based on travel destinations, specific time periods, or specific art styles. If this describes you, go for pillows with tapestry designs or ones that evoke your favorite styles. If you love Native American culture, choose tribal designs, or choose a pillow with a large sun design if you like early Mexican or Aztec art. For those who experiment with creating thematic rooms to showcase a specific country, a pillow with a flag design is a good choice, as is one decorated with particular symbols. For instance, French heritage can be alluded to with fleur de lis designs.

Favorite colors make any room feel like home, but be careful not to saturate any room with one color. Instead, build your décor around one or two favorite colors with accents such as pillows. Solid pillows are often the best choice for rooms dedicated to specific colors. These can be made from material infused with sparkle or fabrics, like imitation velvet, to give your room a heightened sense of luxury. Use neutrals in your walls and furniture to make colors pop. Consider using pillows and blankets in varying shades of your chosen colors.

Vintage is a popular décor choice among today’s homeowners because when done with a keen eye, it’s timeless. The “vintage vibe” covers everything from postcard-style pillows to pastel florals, from linen and lace to hand-stitched country designs. To achieve this look, search out pillows made with time-honored fabrics and simple trim, such as a bit of lace tatting or understated embroidery.
