Color and Pattern Selections

When selecting accent colors and patterns for fall throw pillows, consider warm, earthy tones such as burnt orange, deep red, and mustard yellow.

Plaid patterns are also a popular choice for fall decor, as they add a cozy and rustic feel. For a more modern look, a geometric print and abstract designs can add a pop of color and visual interest.

Also, don’t forget about cream colors, these will add warmth to your space if you are not into the more bold colors.

Style Options

You don’t have to buy new pillows each year, sometimes just buying new fall pillow covers is all you need to do to refresh your throw pillows in an inexpensive way.

Just look for pillow covers with an easy-access zipper closure or buttons to easily change out the pillow insert.

If you don’t have pillow inserts yet, IKEA and Amazon both have great options for cheap.

The best part is once you buy a pillow insert, you can not only use it for the current season but for the rest of the year just by changing out your pillow cover.

How to Choose the Right Throw Pillows for Your Living Space

Throw pillows are an easy and affordable way to update your home decor for the fall season. However, with so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right ones for your space. Here are some tips to help you make the best decision.

Consider Your Existing Decor

First, take a look at your home decor. Look for spots on your furniture, beds, and benches. What areas have blank spaces and need a touch of happy fall vibes?

This can even be at the legs of a side table or legs of a bench depending on your home life (if you have dogs you may want to skip this trend).

When you have a neutral color scheme, you can easily add a pop of color with bold pillows. If you have a lot of patterns in your home, choose solid-colored pillows to balance it out. 

When planning out what to add, consider staying within your current decor style so that the throw pillows you add look like they belong vs. looking out of place.

If you have a modern or minimalist space, you may want to choose pillows with clean lines and simple patterns. If you have a traditional or eclectic space, you can be more playful with your pillow choices.

Think About Comfort and Functionality

While the aesthetic appeal of throw pillows is important, don’t forget about comfort and functionality. Choose pillows that are soft and comfortable to the touch, and that provide adequate support when you’re sitting or lounging.

Down is a great option for quality inserts that hold their shape while still being soft. If you have kids or pets, consider choosing pillows that are easy to clean and maintain. 

Another thing to think about is the size and shape of your pillows. Standard square pillows are versatile and can be used on sofas, chairs, and beds. However, if you have a sectional or a chaise lounge, you may want to choose larger or longer pillows to provide more support.

Final Thoughts

Finding cheap throw pillows for fall is definitely possible with a little bit of thought and shopping. Knowing what you want to add to your space will save you time, once you find what you are looking for, snag it quickly. Don’t be afraid to slowly build your collection as well. Adding a throw pillow to your decor every couple of weeks throughout the season is also ok! 

When searching for cheap throw pillows, it’s important to keep in mind the materials used, as well as the overall quality of the product. While it may be tempting to opt for the cheapest option available, it’s often worth spending a bit more for a higher-quality pillow that will last longer and provide better support.

The biggest takeaway is to create a space that you want to spend time in and have people over to enjoy the fall weather together.

    I love the blue pumpkin pillow! I’ve always admired the blue pumpkins, bur never thought I’d have a place for them in my home. A couple of weeks ago I was loooking at the fall decor in our den. the area most decorated is the floor to ceiling built-in bookcases along one entire wall. I was looking at all of the bittersweet, gold pumpkin, my favorite large chalkware black scottie dog with the big orange bow I had tied around his neck and felt I needed something else. I got a print of a blue pumpkin nearly identical to the one on your pillow, framed it and put it on one of the shelves. I love it! The beautiful blue is just enough of a different color to set off the other fall tones and shine by itself as the perfect piece of decor. Thanks for sharing!
