It’s Easy to Add Fall Throw Pillows

Summer is ending, and it is time to transition to our fall decorations. One of my favorite ways to decorate is adding fall throw pillows.

I know it is 100 degrees outside, and it can be hard to think about the cooler fall days. I do promise those days will come.

Fall is my favorite time of the year.

The crispness in the air makes me feel alive. I love to bundle up and go on walks with my dogs or hang out on my front porch. The colors of leaves changing are always so beautiful. It’s like nature telling a story all its own while painting pictures beyond words.

It’s a blog hop day! So grab your coffee and hop along with me. I am hoping with several friends to give you all the inspiration you will need for transitioning from summer to fall this year.

If you came from Sheri’s blog from @savvyinthesuburbs, Welcome. I do not doubt that you are all inspired to get going on your fall decor after seeing Sheri’s beautiful home.

Continuing our fall decorating, I am sharing a few ways to decorate your home and porch for fall with throw pillows. Throw pillows are a great way to add color and autumnal charm, and you don’t have to spend much money. In this blog post, I’ll show you how to use fall throw pillows in your home and share how I made my favorite pillow. I hope you will love it.

Creating is my favorite, as you all know, but the sewing machine and I do not always get along for some reason. I prefer buying my pillows or purchasing a plain cover and jazzing it up.

Blue and white are my favorite colors to decorate with, and my living room is full of them. However, I prefer pillows with a slight fall touch for this room. These two pillows have just a hint of jute rope, making them an excellent choice for transitioning from summer to fall decor.

How to Choose the Right Pillows

Throw pillows are one of the easier things I’ve found that can be changed out for a new look, so they make decorating quick and fun.

To start, choose a fall palette. You could go with traditional autumn hues like orange, brown, and gold or try something subtle like shades of green and cream. Once you have your colors picked out, start thinking about patterns. For example, try pairing plaid pillows with solid-colored ones if you want to stick with a traditional look. Or mix things up by incorporating different textures into your design—for instance, suede versus velvet or knitted versus boucle. The possibilities are endless if your colors and patterns work well together!

Throw pillows are a vast industry and typically one of the first things you see when you enter a home decor store.

Why is that? Because they are typically relatively inexpensive and so easy to change out.

The only problem is that there are so many options that it is hard to choose which pillows I want to buy.

Use Your Fall Throw Pillows Outdoors

This sweet rocking chair would look so lonely without adding this throw pillow. The vines and pumpkins make it more than just an average decoration. They add character and charm to my porch.

And nothing goes better with beautiful fall throw pillows than a cozy throw blanket. I adore making these easy chunky throws for my home.

However, I will have to save that post for another day.

And just in case you are not up to hand knitting one yourself, there are so many gorgeous ones you can buy. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Sometimes I can’t find the exact pillow I am looking for, so I enjoy creating my own. Last year, my girlfriend gave me the most fantastic candle, which had a very fun lid. So I knew I could get creative with this carved pumpkin lid.

It was just a matter of time before I had the Aw Ha moment!!

And this pillow came to life.
