Ahh pillows. New throw pillows are an easy and cost effective way to change the look of a whole room and add a pop of color. I’ve already referenced my love of throw pillows here. Not only are they pretty to look at, they are functional too! This is true at our house anyway. Our pillows are never too precious to actually use and cuddle up to on the couch. What would be the point of that?
For me, once a new season rolls around (and sometimes more often than that), it’s either time to shop my own spare closet for pillows I can switch out, do a pillow swap with my mom, or it’s time to go shopping for some new ones. The nice thing about the first two options is that they don’t cost a dime. I contemplated sharing a picture of my spare (pillow) closet for about half a second, but it is a hot mess and I’m also feeling a little sheepish about my collection… :/ It’s funny because I’m usually really good about purging things that we aren’t using on a fairly regular basis and keeping everything pretty pared down around here, but there’s something about those darn pillows. In my defense, I have re-used the ones I have many times. I guess when it comes to pillows I am a little fickle and like to change them a lot, so it’s just nice to have some on hand to cycle through. We all have our things.
A couple of places that I frequent for good pillows are Target and Homegoods, but another place I like to check is Etsy. There are tons of options on Etsy and you can really find anything you are looking for — there’s something for everyone, in every price range. Don’t tell Mike (who gives me the side eye every time I come home with a new pillow), but I am totally feeling the itch to switch up the pillows in my life right now — I blame it on the nice, warm weather we’ve been having this week. And hey, it’s cheaper than buying a new couch, right?!
Here’s an Etsy roundup of some pillows that I’m currently crushing on that will hopefully inspire some pillow switch-ups in your future:
I can’t be the only one out there with a spare closet full of pillows — who’s with me?
