If you have an eye for earthy and neutral tones, tan throw pillows make excellent accents to use in your designs. And despite the color’s common reputation, tan pillows are anything but boring. Tan is soothing and happy, and it can work well with bright and cheery tones.
Our stock of tan pillows includes a wide range of textures, styles, shades, and color combinations from brands and designers such as Safavieh, Surya, KAS and many more. With southwestern, Moroccan, abstract, rustic, nautical, and even geometric designs, you’ll find attention-grabbing pillows for any situation.
Using Tan Throw Pillows
Earthy neutrals like tan are a staple in many color palettes. And a set of tan throw pillows can offset colorful throw pillows or a colorful couch, maintaining the integrity of the palette in the room. You can also find tan pillows in wild prints like leopard or with fuzzy, textured fabrics.
In color psychology, tan is a natural color often seen as solid, reliable, and safe. It also evokes a sense of strength and authenticity, especially in darker shades, so it’s perfect for those areas of the home that you want to unwind in. Too much brown can make a space feel moody and sad, though, so pair it with bright colors and a well-designed color palette for the best results.
If you’d like more inspiration for how to use tan accent pillows, we’ve included a couple of our favorite ideas below to get you started:
Tan couch pillows are a popular choice because of their association with feelings of protection and dependability. You want your living room to make people feel comfortable, and tan pillows for couch decor can bring this energy into the space.
You might try adding in other relaxing colors like navy blue or teal for a more upbeat vibe—for example, an arrangement of camel throw pillows with a pair of teal pillows at the forefront.
Using tan pillows for bed decor can make your sleeping space feel relaxing and soothing. Try beige throw pillows paired with warm earthy tones for a classic bedroom palette.
These tan throw pillows are incredibly versatile, and we hope you’re excited to pick the perfect ones. Below, you’ll find some tips and pointers to help you find the best tan pillows for your space:
Color and Symmetry: Tan is an earthy neutral and can work well with a wide range of palettes, but you should still pick one color palette and stick to it when decorating with throw pillows. Also, shoot for a symmetrical pillow arrangement to make your space look polished.
Durability: Pick pillows that you can keep clean. For example, a home with pets may need more durability and easier cleaning than a home without pets. And the same can be said for high traffic, children, and outdoor areas.
Quantity: Unless otherwise noted, pillows are priced and sold individually. This allows you to pick tan decorative pillows in various shades, patterns, and materials for a more interesting design.
