Have you walked into a neighbor’s home and admired the decorating and wondered how she pulled off the look? A secret might be in the quality of what you don’t see – things like throw pillow inserts.
Yes, it’s often what you don’t see that matters most. Throw pillow inserts come with different fillings that affect how the pillow looks and feels. The most practical throw pillow inserts are made from polyester. They retain their shape without looking too hard or too soft.
A designer tip is that when one pillow needs a new insert it’s best to change all of them. This prevents having some pillows looking new while other throw pillows look worn. Also, many decorators recommend purchasing throw pillow inserts that are softer vs. firmer, which provides a softer, inviting look.
