What Houzz contributors are saying:
The case for noneWhat is it about throw pillows on the bed? They don’t really serve any purpose other than a decorative one, or to prop you up when you’re reading. But some people feel a bedroom isn’t complete without at least a couple of them neatly on display.Quite a few users on Houzz said that they can’t see the point in throw pillows though, and that they’re impractical when it comes time to go to sleep. Often people don’t know where to put them, so they generally end up on the floor. “While I adore the notion of artfully tossed and occasionally plumped piles of silks, feathers, linens and embroideries, practicality also comes into play,” says interior design Kim Pearson. She also notes that some of her male clients tend not to like the concept of throw pillows, which Houzzers tend to agree with.User telperien even says, “My husband isn’t a fan of throw pillows. In his opinion, they’re called throw pillows for a very good reason – to be thrown right out of the room!”
TIP: Choosing a bedside table is the perfect opportunity to play around a little. Because they’re generally small and budget options are available, you can experiment with colour, shape and unusual pairings without taking too much of a hit if it doesn’t work for you.
The bedroom is just as witty and eclectic as the rest of the house, but there’s a symmetry to it that provides calm. It’s Weston’s affinity for embracing decoration and embellishment that allows him to choose a collection of pieces which add personality, but which don’t disrupt the liveable purpose of each room.
