Regardless of what the weather’s like where you live, most of us enjoy spending time outdoors. There’s just something about a cool breeze and a hot cup of coffee to help you relax, unwind and prepare for tomorrow. Beautiful outdoor pillows can make your time outdoors fun, relaxing and fully enjoyable. Most nowadays have UV protection so you can leave them in the sun for long periods. They’re also weather resistant and ready whether it’s rain or shine. The right outdoor pillows and furnishings should welcome your guests.
Decorating with Outdoor Pillows
Just as with your indoor living space, your outdoor space should showcase your style and tastes. This is easy to accomplish with a clever design and the right elements. Place a comfortable bench underneath your favorite tree. Add a bird fountain nearby with trickling water. But don’t stop there! You can create the perfect outdoor getaway and get the whole family involved in making your design come true. There are endless features that can improve or even transform the space.
A Gazebo Versus a Pergola
Generally speaking, a gazebo has a roof, a floor and columns that leave the space between completely open. Most also have built-in seating. This is a project that only experienced homeowners should tackle. You’ll need power tools and some strong hands to do the work. Most home improvement stores sell these as kits that are not that difficult to put together. It might take a few weekends to complete though. A pergola is usually just an open roof with two or four columns depending on whether it’s freestanding or attached to the house. This type of project could be completed in a weekend. It offers partial shade, but you can grow vines of all types across the roof to provide full shade.
Home improvement stores offer another product that works well for many homeowners and it’s very simple to put together. These are ready-made canopies usually crafted of a durable plastic and/or aluminum. They are sold in kits with instructions about how to assemble and most come with mosquito netting. They can be placed anywhere in the yard and are able to withstand wind and weather. They’re very affordable as well. The trick to making one of these gazebo kits look great is with your furnishings, plants and accessories.
Adding Design Elements
Start with a comfortable outdoor seating area, then add some outdoor throw pillows to make it homey. Next add some small tables to hold drinks and other items. You can place plants in the ground or simply use potted plants around the space. Make your outdoor space inviting, comfy and charming and guests will never want to leave.
Summer brings fresh air, warm temperatures and longer days to entertain family and friends. Now is a perfect time to spruce up your outdoor living area to make it inviting and welcoming for the fun days and nights ahead.

No matter what you choose, think color!
While always in style, neutrals have taken on even more prominence in decorating with the recent announcement of “Color of the Year” by Pantone, Inc. This announcement is widely anticipated by designers around the world. The Color of the Year influences many products we use, from paint to pillows, from electronics to automobiles.
Recently, Pantone announced its selection for 2015: Marsala. This is what Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute® had to say about this choice:
“Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth…This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”
For a more daring, exotic look, opt for a combination of rich royal paisley and floral patterns. Our Finders Keepers Blue collection gives your décor that bohemian, retro vibe. When paired with muted tones, this swirling motif makes a playful, chic interior. The designs vary in size and prints and each of these stylish pillows radiates a unique identity. Paired on a bed and sofa, this is a must-have for every elegant home.
These and many more color, pattern, and texture pairings can be found in our “Lifestyle Design Series.” These top graded indoor and outdoor pillows offered at our online stores can be mixed and matched with cushions for a variety of indoor/outdoor furniture including benches, chaise lounge, chairs, wrought iron seats, wicker seats.. Here at Pillow Perfect, we’re dedicated to advancing our craft and look forward to introducing many new designs for 2015.
Colors help enhance mood in the interior space, and at the same time, serve to put an accent to objects in relation to each other. Bright colored pillows can easily be spotted from across the room when set against a sofa with demure patterns and colors. Fabric, texture, and pattern of throw pillows, when matched carefully, can improve the visual appearance and general vibe of the room. To further kick up the room’s vibrant ambiance, you may mix and match different sizes of throw pillows to provide better visual interest.
The best feature of having throw pillows around is its comfort or the “smoosh” factor. Soft, downy or comparatively firm pillows soften the look of edges or hard materials, balancing the elements to create a mood of coziness to make lounging so much more inviting.
If you’re looking for a bit of change in your living room, but aren’t really up for a total makeover or a renovation, you can still change the look in your room by simply changing your throw pillows. They’re affordable, and you can do it anytime, without delay.
For amazing throw pillows, one of the things that you need to look into is the quality of the pillow’s insert. Yes, the pillow you’ve got your eye on might have the fluffiest pillow inserts, but will it still hold after a few months of use? Apartment Therapy offers this useful tip on trying out a pillow for quality.
The company’s rich history dates back in 1989 when brothers Paul and David started a business for manufacturing decorative pillows. After securing their first major order, they had only their credit cards to finance the production. With sheer determination, they were able to beat the odds and prove their reliability to their first major customer.
The company’s growth involved lots of moving around. It relocated to Marietta, Georgia in 1993, and then returned to Woodstock, Georgia in 1999. Currently, the manufacturer is headquartered in a 40,000–square-foot complex in Woodstock, Georgia, staffed by about 65 personnel.
