The most important room in the home is the bedroom. The bedroom is the room where we begin our day, and it’s also the room where we end our day. The most important piece of furniture in our bedroom, is, of course, our bed. For those of us who love home décor, our bed should have both form and function—comfort for good sleep, bedding, and pillows for a great look.
Arranging a variety of decorative pillows on your bed will add color, softness, and style to your bedroom décor. I suggest that you choose pillows and shams that are cohesive with your comforter or duvet cover. If you have a specific color palette or a specific theme, keep it simple by adding throw pillows that complement that theme. For example, if you have a “Boho” theme in your bedroom, you might want to choose pillows with geometric patterns or bold prints. If you have more of a “Glam” theme in your bedroom, you might want to choose pillows with lots of shine and sequins.
For those of us who like to occasionally change our bed décor, especially from season to season, I suggest starting with a neutral comforter or duvet cover. With neutral bedding, you can easily add color and pattern with throw pillows.
In the above photo, you can see how I mixed and matched throw pillows around the Decocrated Burnt Orange Velvet Square Pillow. This pillow works perfectly to add Fall color to any bedding.

In this photo, you can see how I added another pillow to the mix. It’s the indigo blue boho patterned lumbar pillow from the Decocrated 2021 Summer Box. This pillow adds a touch more of blue and a lot more pattern. Also, notice how well the Decocrated Kelly Wall Mirror enhances the wall and the overall aesthetic. If you like the look that this mirror brings to this bed, consider buying one for your bedroom. Kelly Wall Mirror – Decocrated
The following photo shows another pillow combination but using the same neutral bedding. This throw pillow mix has (3) gold pillows accented by the reverse side of the indigo blue boho patterned lumbar pillow from the Decocrated 2021 Summer Box. Who says you can only use lemon-themed décor in the summertime? I say…decorate with items that make you happy, regardless of the season!
Remember, there is no wrong way, and there are no special guidelines to follow when arranging decorative pillows on your bed. Choose what is the most comfortable and the most appealing to you and your décor style.
