 Neutral Throw Pillows Perfect For Any Space

Like almost everyone who talks about home decor online, I have a real obsession with throw pillows!

Beautiful throw pillows have always been an essential decor accessory in my home.

Lately I’ve been loving the look of neutral pillows so much – preferably nubby or textured.

Upping the cozy factor around here with a new super soft throw pillow or two just seems like a good these days

If you think so too…

Here are the best looking neutral, soft, chic throw pillows- all of which I’m LOVING right now.

In addition to a variety of gorgeous pillows, it’s always nice to have a few soft, warm throw blankets around as well.

Decorative baskets are a great way to both store and display all of your throws and pillows.

All of these options below would be a great addition to your couch, sofa, bed or accent chair.

One of the great things about a neutral color scheme is how easy it is to work with.

Mixing and matching is a breeze and almost any combination of these will look great.

Whether your tend to prefer modern, traditional, boho or an eclectic mix  of everything, you really can’t go wrong when it comes to choosing these calm and pleasing neutral hues for your decorative pillows.

The Pillow Insert

Since many of the above are neutral pillow covers, you’ll need to purchase inserts if you don’t already have them.

Also, if you have some good throw pillows you no longer love – simply place them inside a removable cover like these and boom – instant new look!

But, if you’re in the market for some new ones… these are THE best inserts around.

I found these recently and can say I now like them the best, mostly because they look like real down, but without the allergens and actual feathers which tend to “escape” all over the house over time.

Another great thing to keep in mind when purchasing throw pillow inserts, is the sizing.

As a general rule, the insert should be about two inches larger than your pillow cover.

Lastly, when in doubt with which throw pillow size to go for, a 20″ x 20″ size square pillow.

These square pillows are almost always going to look great.

I especially love to use lumbar pillows on a long couch, as seen above.

If you’re looking for a wide variety of styles and shapes at once, then Etsy is the best place (and my personal favorite way) to find the perfect accent pillow.

One of the best features on this platform is the wide selection.

From solid colors to bold prints and goemetric patterns in subtle colors and all different sizes – you’ll find it all here.

There’s even a few vendors which use natural materials for their cushion covers.

Of course, Etsy also offers custom pillows – so there’s really something for every one on this site.
