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 a neutral, preferably nubby or textured, super soft throw pillow.

Upping the cozy factor around here these days just seems like a good idea.

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

In addition to a variety 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.

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

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 pillow is almost always going to look great.
