Using Beach Throw Pillows
Coastal design is beautiful, airy, light, and gets used worldwide to create calming homes, often far away from the sea. With a few tweaks to your home, you could use beach throw pillows as a quick and straightforward way to add coastal decor to your interior and exterior living areas.
One of the first things to do before buying coastal throw pillows is picking a color palette. Choose four to five colors per room, including neutrals like white, ivory, and tan, and purchase pillows that include these colors. We recommend using solid color pillows and pillows with fun patterns to create a pleasing, well-rounded display.
