Using Black and White Throw Pillows
The reason that black and white throw pillows are so versatile is the combination of two neutral colors. Black and white are staples in interior design. Many decorators include both colors in every room. They won't clash with other colors and, with such a sharp contrast between these opposites, the patterns will always be eye-catching.
For the best results, stick to a color palette of four to six colors per room, including black and white. And don’t be afraid to mix in colored pillows with your black and white options for variety. Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite ways to use black and white accent pillows for those who’d like extra inspiration:
Using black and white pillows for couch arrangements is a simple strategy for a beautiful collection.
For example, you might pair black and white geometric throw pillows with solid-colored pillows on a white couch. Or use black and white boho throw pillows on a colorful couch draped in eye-catching fabrics to ground the aesthetic.
For example, you might add black and white plaid pillows and black and white checkered throw pillows to a cozy mountain lodge bedroom. Or a lone black and white striped throw pillow nestled with a few chic pillows on a crisp white bedspread.
Shopping for your favorite black and white throw pillows is exciting. With so many designs, textures, and styles to choose from, it's easy to make snap decisions on your favorite options. Before you buy, though, check out the tips below to help avoid standard buyer's mistakes:
Sizing and Symmetry: Pillow arrangements generally look best when they're ordered by size and arranged symmetrically. Look for inspiration online to plan your collection before you buy your pillows for the best results.
Durability: Choose pillows made from fabric that's durable enough to stand up to your household's environment. For example, black and white outdoor throw pillows are appropriate for exterior settings and busy indoor homes. Cotton, wool, and synthetics are suitable for low to moderate traffic interior environments.
Quantity: Unless otherwise noted, all black and white throw pillows are priced and sold separately. You can use this to your advantage by purchasing various pillow designs and sizes for your arrangement.
