Pillows are an integral part of any bedroom décor or furniture design, both functionally and decoratively. However, decorative pillows can sometimes be costly, so if you don’t want to spend a fortune, why not consider purchasing pillow shams instead? Pillow shams allow you to convert a standard pillow into a decorative piece that suits your wooden sofa set.
Most comforter sets will come complete with pillow shams, allowing you to match the pillows to the comforter easily. When designing their room, many people will opt for plain shams, which are the easiest to match with many styles of sheets and duvet covers. Colorful shams are a great decorative option, and there are many shades to make even the plainest sham stand out. You can also find designer shams for purchase.
Sizing Pillow Shams
The size of your pillow shams will depend on, obviously, the size of your pillows. Some prefer to have large pillow shams. However, many people like to have multiple small shams to decorate with. It allows you to create a multilayered, stacked look with your sleeping pillows in the background. Still, others prefer to mix-and-match the two sizes, with more oversized pillows in the back and gradually smaller pillows as you approach the foot of the bed. It’s all up to your particular style and taste.
Improve your pillow style
Pillows aren’t just a place to put your head at night; they can also serve as decoration in your bedroom or wooden sofa set. No matter the style of your room (or your children’s rooms), you can find decorative pillows to match. The current trend in bed decoration is to have lots of pillows. The more, the merrier, as long as everything matches.
Since you will not be sleeping on your decorative pillows, you might as well get designer pillows that suit your furniture design. They will add a particular flair to your bedroom, one that regular decorative pillows can’t match. Pillow detailing creates a look which you are sure to want to have at the front of any stack of pillows.
The designs on these pillows are meant to stand out when you want them to but can also add to the room’s general decorative flow when you want them to blend in. You can use your designer pillows to create any style you like – at the end of the day, this is your bedroom, and it should reflect you.
Pillow Form and Function
Throw pillows have been reserved for spaces such as the living room for too long; there is no reason not to add a few to your bedroom. The best part about adding throw pillows to the bedroom is that you can integrate them with different furniture pieces.
If you have space, you can add a chaise lounge that boasts matching throw pillows to the ones you have on the bed. Those looking to use regular pillows as decorative tools may want to consider getting some pillow inserts but in shapes other than rectangles. A suitable square feather pillow insert may be just the thing.
