Sofas, lounge chairs, and loveseats only go so far in customization. Accent pieces like throw pillows (and blankets) allow for personalization to one's taste. Home decor preferences are ever-changing with the seasons and trends but pillows are a little tool to keep in your back pocket for a big payoff.

The right cushion catches the eye and makes a statement—and whether that statement is stylishly simple or impactfully bold is up to you. Since these comfortable poufs are impermanent and stow easily, they’re perfect little decorative objects for a fast design overhaul. The best throw pillows serve as lavish accessories and personal joy-inducers. Let Nest Casa's favorite picks inspire your next instant home makeover, from neutral palettes to on-trend colors, patterns, and prints.

Neutral Throw Pillows

From the endless options in decorative cushions, there is always a need for neutral-colored throw pillows. Versatile patterns in colorless schemes make classic pairings to any sofa, seat, or bed, however minimal or maximal. 

Missoni's Ontario cushion offers a subtle approach to the fashion house's signature chevron motif.

This ribbed velvet Coomba cushion is stuffed with goose-down filling, which makes it soft to the touch and beneath your head. 

Hand-woven from pure sheep's wool, this geometrical pattern in mixed neutral hues is inspired by Southwestern artisans.

The Weda cushion in durable and protective jacquard features a removable cover for easy washing.

Patchwork Throw Pillows

Mixing prints can be as luxurious as it is kitschy. These picks are playful decorations for a tasteful home with unique style. 

Feel right at home with a luxurious, leather pouf. Patches are assembled into panels for a timeless, textured look.

The frilled edge calls to mind timeless designs but this multi-toned teal palette is far from bland or old-fashioned.

This versatile tan shade in genuine leather is even more enticing with the striking patchwork design. Toss it on a sleek sofa or work chair for endless enjoyment and comfort. 

Bold yet subtle, Jonathan Adler has mastered the art of funky, Mod vibes—and this eye-catching plush is a prime example. 

Velvet Throw Pillows

Velvet is innately regal, imbuing royalty. Solid and perfectly plush, these are the most presentable choices for a luxe, modernist home. 

This decorative shade is surprisingly versatile: a modern sofa could benefit from a dose of color while a busier setting, like a statement chair, would also be enhanced.

Missoni's Tibet cushion is a modern iteration of a vintage style. Contrast fringe borders trim the silky smooth cotton-blend to create a one-of-a-kind accent. 

Rustic shades blend into neutral palettes (think: taupe fabrics and wooden furniture) beautifully. Splash this shade onto a sofa and watch your space warm up instantly. 

Tom Dixon's Soft Collection was specifically designed for supreme comfort that still looks luxurious. The golden hue of this ochre velvet pillow is a superior upgrade, no matter the setting.

Animal Throw Pillows

A feisty, animal print provides instant interest in any room. A minimalist palette effortlessly comes to life with a jungle-inspired pattern. Likewise, a maximalist theme pops even more with just a couple of fierce pieces. 

Rani Arabella's founders come from Italian and Indian traditions, making this original artwork rich in heritage. This Safari print is a prime example of how a busy toile-like pattern can blend into any setting. 

Serpents are a popular motif in luxurious homes because they've long represented passion and prosperity. Saved NY is revered for its premium fabrics—and this pure cashmere piece is no exception. 

This modern, tiger print has become a staple in high-end homes. This classic interpretation of the trend that promises to be loved forever. 

A contemporary take on leopard print, the artistic Midsummer Milano cushion brings an appreciation for wildlife and all of its magic right into your home.  

Outdoor Throw Pillows

Outdoor throw pillows require specific criteria, like durable fabrics and easily washable covers. Here are a few of Nest Casa’s favorite options to spruce up a backyard patio. 

Nautical pinstripes are a perennial summer favorite. This blue-trimmed option from Serena & Lily will make your home look like a resort. 

Channel a tropical getaway with Philodendron palms. Create a decadent staycation with a coupling or two of this subtle, split-leaf print.

Bouclé is a luxurious fabric that requires a skilled approach to make it outdoor-proof. Restoration Hardware uses Perennials-brand yarn for loops and stitches to create an unexpected texture to spruce up the home's exterior.

Cotton jacquard and fringed trim are two textiles not often seen outdoors, so this stunning and rustic pattern is sure to make a statement. 

Colorful Throw Pillows

Whether subtle or flashy, a small piece that makes a major statement can refresh an entire room. Art admirers, especially, will adore this whimsical assortment. 

Introduce bold hues and sheen with this Coomba cushion. It features a ribbed texture that is elevated but versatile, making it a perfect anchor in an assortment of pillows.

This unique abstraction is a warm invitation to find inspiration in the unexpected and to simply run with it.  

Made of 100-percent cotton, the Oroscopo collection is inspired by Chinese zodiac signs. Find your birth year in the collection and don't be surprised if it also happens to be your favorite design!

Think of this delightful pattern as an inkblot: one design can turn into endless images, depending on the observer. And that's just half the fun in this playful piece. What do you see?
