Sourcing Decorative Pillows
Accent pillows can add just that right touch of accent color and individuality to a room. Throw pillows can also add pattern or texture. But, have you ever been stumped trying to find the right decorative pillow for your room’s decor? It’s not easy to find some of the sources. I’ve put together a selection of sources that offer an abundant variety of fun, colorful, lovely, ethic, and interesting pillows. I’ve shown two to four examples from each.
