Fall Decorating with Coordinated Pillows

Rust and Navy Fall Pillows

Rust, navy, and cream are a classic color combination that is perfect and gorgeous for this cozy time of year. Welcome the fall season with these warm tones that fit into any style home!

Pillow Tip: Purchase pillow inserts that are made from down or a down alternative, like trillium.  IKEA has inserts for just $6.00 and they are wonderful!

Orange, Black, and White Pillows for the Fall

These colors definitely say autumn (and maybe even a bit of Halloween?).  Using black, orange, and white really packs a punch… and would be a perfect addition to a mid-century modern or even a modern farmhouse style home.10-minute fall decorating with coordinated pillow sets in orange and black

Pillow Tip: When purchasing pillow covers, always be sure the covers are two inches smaller than the inserts.  This creates the fluffy, full pillows you see in all those wonderful shots on Instagram and Pinterest!

Fall Pillows in Yellow, Aqua, and Grey

This year, the fall season seems to be hollering ‘yellow’ to this gal. How ’bout you?  Adding yellow and aqua has been my ‘go-to’ colors.  You can see exactly how My Wee Abode is showing-off these colors in my Fall Home Tour

(Did y’all notice I’m really loving velvet this fall, as well?)

Pillow Tip: Be sure when purchasing covers that you pay attention to these details: size of the pillow cover(s), is the detail/accents on one side or both, type of fabric used to make the cover, and how many covers are included in the price.

Blues and Greys for Autumn Pillow Sets

These colors are a bit more on the pale side, but don’t you just love the big florals and leaves on the printed pillow? And the texture on the solid blue one with the cozy sweater grey pillow cover will add just the right amount of comfort to a room.

Pillow tip: Buying covers separate from the pillow inserts means you only have to store the pillow covers! You can fold the covers and put them in a drawer and use the same pillows over and over again.  Simply change out the pillow covers for the season… or any time you want!

Green and Yellow Fall Pillows

What did I tell ya?  Yellow is just feeling so autumnal to me.  This yellow and green set with touches of aqua and rust are more pastel, but still give a cozy seasonal touch to any sitting area.

Pillow Tip: Poly-fill DOES have its place when it comes to pretty pillows.  When the corners of your pillow cover just refuse to be filled by the insert, take a handful of poly-fill and stuff it into the corners.  You’ll have perfectly full pillow corners every time!
