Pillow talk: 7 spring-like styles to warm up your home this winter
Most of the country is downright sick of the cold, and the dreary living rooms and bedrooms we’ve been trapped inside when we’re not slaving away at work.
Our advice? If you can’t talk Mother Nature into bringing springtime to the great outdoors, bring a few hints of it into your home. We suggest a bouquet of roses or a hyacinth plant. And toss those dark-colored velvet throws and pillows in favor of sunnier shades.
You won’t have to go far to find pillows in sweet shades of peach, yellow or green.
Chrissy Madison, media relations specialist for Pier 1 Imports, says brightening up the home is as simple as looking to the little things around you.
“Adding accent colors–and textures–is a fantastic way to pull in the season’s bright palette, without going overboard,” Madison says. “Allow your space to flourish by accessorizing with patterned pillows in crisp green, casual blue and any pastel.”
We’ve suggested a few that might brighten up your couch, love seat or even bed.
