Little about decorative pillows
For the first time pillows were used as a decorating element for a long time. With their help, designers placed accents using products with a bright color or print.

The model range was replenished with goods decorated with stones, rhinestones, embroidery. And since they were quite expensive, housewives began to “parody” branded products.
And after a while the “parody” became more popular and demanded than the original. Few people were surprised, because the desire to purchase something unique, and not the goods from the conveyor, is quite normal and understood.
Most often, as a filler for decorative pillows, materials such as sintepon or holofiber are used. Such a choice is due to the fact that these materials hold the shape better than others and do not roll down.
To achieve this, using cotton wool or fluff, as a filler, is impossible. In addition, we should not forget that the products made of them are quite heavy, while the pillows from the same padding polyester are not only lighter, but also comfortable.
Therefore, if you want to get not just a beautiful, but also a quality product, we recommend that you use the above materials for filling.
The shape of decorative pillows are themselves different. The choice regarding the shape of the product depends on the purpose for which you want to use the item.
In the event that you plan to use a pillow not only as a decorating element, but also for its intended purpose, limit yourself to simpler forms. The ideal shape of a rectangle or square.
For those products that will be used only as a decor, you can choose absolutely any shape. Quite often you can find pillows not only in the form of an oval or a circle, but also in the form of letters, animals, and other objects.
Such products look very creative and unusual. They can be successfully used to decorate a child's room.
Where to begin?
You had a great idea to decorate the interior with decorative pillows, and you are in a hurry to get to work? Then you should restrain your ardor and first think about what style your product will belong to.
Based on this, you can choose the most suitable form, material and color palette. Always remember that the choice of fabric should be carried out according to the criteria and requirements that are imposed directly on the style.
The most popular are natural materials, which are most often used to sew decorative pillows Olive or Scandinavian style.
And materials such as silk and satin are perfect for a classic style. For rooms decorated in country style, fabrics with a natural color and a rough texture are very well suited.
If your house has rooms decorated in high-tech style, then it should be mentioned that the style itself does not accept the use of decorating elements. This means that the use of decorative pillows should be very careful.
To harmoniously fit them into the overall design of the room, take enough time to select the appropriate color and shape. The best solution, according to the designers, in this case is sewing a rectangular or square pillow made of artificial material. Fabric must necessarily be smooth.
Particular attention should also be paid to the selection of accessories. Especially if it acts as a decorating, not a complementary element. After all, only French and romantic styles allow for abundant use of accessories.
For other styles like this is completely unacceptable, since preference is given to a minimum of jewelry. Of course, the product itself can be quite bright, catchy. However, the abundance of stones, rhinestones, buttons, stripes should not be.
Products decorated in a similar way will look ridiculous and inorganic. Therefore, if you do not want to violate the integrity of the style, you should not get too carried away in the process of decorating.
