Throw open the doors to the season with holiday and Christmas pillows. Reindeer, snowflakes and pastoral themes fold easily into any decor. Arranged on a sofa, a club chair or on a bed in your bedroom or guest room, they can quickly change the tone of your decor, imparting holiday spirit throughout the home.
Pillows are a simple way to add a touch of novelty to your holiday decor. Pillows with applique images of winter animals on their covers are both charming and unique. They speak to the season without being overwhelming. When silhouetted against a soft background, the appliques appear at once dramatic and unobtrusive. The result is that they can be a part of your decor long after the holidays have ended.
Try unconventional pillow colors that tie into the palette of the rest of your Christmas decorations. Shimmery white and blue can work year-round, as can gold. Pillows in animal print add richness of color and texture. Mixing and matching pillows will bring visual interest to an overly plain or monochrome sofa or bed linens.
No matter which style of holiday pillows you opt for, you'll smile, reminded of the season every time you see them. And there's no need to pack them away once the holidays are over. Store your collection of holiday pillows in a bench or ottoman in the family room for when the crowd arrives. The more pillows, the merrier! Bring them out for movie night and everyone will have a place to rest their heads.
