Decorative Pillows for elegant bedding and luxury bedroom
Bedding Report by Ginny Sandhu
In a room the bed especially with decorative pillows is always the main focal point and attracts most of the attention than any other bedroom furniture. The way you decorate your bed reflects on your personal taste and thus the bedding and decorative pillows you select also reflects your unique style.
Everyone likes to define their personal space as an extension of ones personality. To achieve it with relative ease and to have a lot of choices at hand, try different accessories. Bedding gives your room the finishing touches. Decorative pillows, linens, bolsters, and bed skirts are all fantastic ways to accessorize your bed and make your room inviting and fresh.
Gone are the days when were mere rectangular shaped headrest only used for bedrooms? Today decorative pillows are an important part of your bedding decorative. With time even decorative pillows have transformed into an important bedding accessory and changed in terms of usage, shape and sizes.
Today decorative pillows are available in sets of as many as two to seven set including pillowcase, small pillows and throw, for all kinds of beds. You can also accessorize your living room with these as it looks chic, complimenting well with the sofa set. These are needed by all for various reasons; to sleep, for support, to lie on or for just creating a style statement. There is no strict rule to how many you can use for your bedroom. Generally for bedding you have two to sleep along with smaller set of decorative pillows. You may also like to use a third set of throw pillow, the smallest in size.
Bedding come in various designs, patterns and colors. You can buy them as a set along with main bedding and quilts or if you already have them and just need the set, you can still find huge varieties which can match your existing bedroom interior. Online shopping is by far the most convenient and easiest way to buy decorative pillows of your choice. Selecting the right decorative pillows depends on many factors. The decorative pillows color you choose should complement the interior of the bedroom. Couple of the most popular colors is blue and black. Like color the fabric also should match or go well with the rest of the bedding.
For example you cannot expect a micro fabric to match your silk bed covers. Styles and designs can be found in abundance as well. Embroidered cases are selling like real hot cakes in the market. Dress up your bed with attractive pillowcase and also throw pillows. But make sure that they do no clutter your bed making it look more like a holder rather than a bed
Dress Up Your Bedding || Five Types of Throw Cushions to Liven Up Your Home
Bedding Report by Richard Rothstein
Decorative pillows make great home decor accessories and come in a variety of designs and materials. The main types one will find are needlepoint, embroidered, hooked, silk, and Aubusson.
Needlepoint is a form of embroidery that covers the entire canvas rather than just being decorative handwork on top of a background. Needlepoint are among the most popular decorative pillows and are available in all price ranges, sizes, and designs.
Embroidered Throw Pillows
The decorative needlework that embellishes many of the most beautiful accent cushions is often created by cross-stitch or crewelwork that is stitched entirely by hand.
Crewelwork and embroidery are considered among the most challenging and time-consuming of all the needle arts, the result of which is detail that can approximate a fine, painted canvas. Common materials for embroidery and crewelwork are silk, wool, and cotton.
Hooked Occasional Cushions
Hooked decorative pillows, like rugs, are made from strands of woolen yarn hooked through a canvas backing to create a specific design or motif. Often considered less formal than needlework, hooked cushions may showcase holiday or other themes, and many use humor and whimsy as well.
Using hooked as accessories in home decorating is always a smart idea — and an economical one too — due to their affordability and familiar themes.
High-End Silk Decorative Pillows
Silk decorative pillows are made not only from silk, but also frequently have handcrafted silk patterns embroidered on them as well. The design might match the shade of the background so the pattern is discernible by its raised texture, or it may be in a matching shade so that you can see and feel the decoration.
Another exquisite type of handmade to consider is one that has contrasting silk embroidery finely worked onto a solid background color.
Throw cushions in the Aubusson style are named after an area in France that has been famous since the Renaissance period for its weavers and the woolen products they produced. Made in the same tradition of highly intricate detailing using top quality yarns are still called Aubusson decorative pillows today. Aubusson decorative pillows are generally used in more formal settings due to their floral, regal, and antique French historical designs.
Despite being entirely handmade, decorative pillows are also remarkably durable. In fact, there are countless examples from the 18th and 19th centuries — Aubusson, needlepoint, embroidered, and more — still being used today. Proper storage and gentle spot-cleaning techniques will keep these home accessories looking new for years to come.
