If you're looking to refresh your home décor on a budget, one simple way to do it is by adding some fun and quirky accent pillows. A cleverly chosen accent pillow immediately draws the eye and make your space more cohesive. Plus, pillows are an easy way to have fun with your décor and help to add personality to any room.

When choosing accent pillows for your bed, sofa or chairs, there are several things to take into consideration. First, you don't want to go overboard. A bed with a mountain of pillows can look chaotic, while a sofa with too many pillows can be just plain uncomfortable. Instead, try finding balance with fewer pillows that have more personality.

Second, consider the details of each pillow. Textures, prints, shapes, colors and trim are all ways you can play around with your home style.
