Decorating your living spaces can be stressful, but our love of pillows is here to help you choose the right ones!

Whether you recently moved or are interested in doing a room makeover, when it comes to home decor, throw pillows are an important part. And you can never have too many! Am I right?!

I’m pretty particular about my decor preferences because they really have the ability to make a house feel like a home! Regardless, if it’s for your bedroom, living room, or outside, we’re sharing our favorite throw pillows and covers that may help you narrow down your options.

This shimmering shag throw pillow is super sophisticated!

If you’re looking to spend a little more, try this shimmer shag throw pillow from Target! I absolutely LOVE my sister’s decor, so I asked her to send me a picture so I can show all of you how cute her setup is (and her kitty, Marco!).

I love this pillow because compared to other shag pillows, they are shimmery and give a really sophisticated look! Plus they come in a variety of colors if the pale pink isn’t speaking to you. Although it is more pricey than the other options, I think it gives a luxurious look to a living space.

Here’s what another reviewer is saying:

“I bought this as a floor pillow to offset a rather loud rug. I didn’t realize it was sparkly until it arrived. I think I like it even more now; it compliments the rug but has a personality of its own – also comfortable for sitting. A big win!”


Mainstays Pillows are a must-have at around $5 a pop!

This 2-pack throw pillows by Mainstays is an absolute deal! Coming in three colors, they’re a solid piece of decor with great reviews on Walmart because of how comfortable, affordable, and stylish they are. You really cannot go wrong with this purchase – not a want, but a need!

Here’s what my Hip Sidekick Shane had to say about these:

“These Mainstay pillows live up to their branding, as they are indeed a ‘mainstay’ for my apartment! From an aesthetic standpoint, they add a modern, minimalistic feel to the couches; and from a functional perspective, the pillows are comfortable for either napping or leaning up against! I’ve owned two sets of these Mainstay pillows for a little over four years now, and have nothing but good things to say about them. 10/10 would recommend.” 


Oblong pillows are the perfect simplistic accent.

In case you’re not sold…

I admit some of these throw pillows can get pretty expensive. If you don’t like any of these or don’t think they’re worth it, try purchasing some without pillowcases, and buy the pillowcases separately. This is a great way to switch out the theme of your room regularly, and there are endless options on Amazon.


Or even more frugal option: Keep an existing pillow and swap the cases!

This is a really great frugal option! Whether it’s because your throw pillow is old, out of season, or no longer matches your decor, simply cover your pillow with a new pillowcase. This way you don’t have to keep buying new pillows and just interchangeably swap out the cases instead.


pom pom pillow on chair

These throw pillow covers have a 4.6-star review from over 26,000 users! People are loving the simplicity and overall great quality of these. I love the pom-pom designs, and this bohemian style is really perfect for elevating your living space.


longhui pillow on couch

Another very popular option, these Longhui throw pillow covers also have a 4.6-star score with over 16,000 reviews! The ruffles are adorable and have a classic design. This is another great buy for home decor!

My Hip sidekick Emily loves the combo of these pillows for fall and swears the quality is so much more than they cost. The striped set goes on sale quite a bit too so even though the $24.99 is still a good deal given their value, Emily scored hers for only $13.99 for pair!


bohemian woven cover

Even more boho vibes! If you’re looking for a way to spruce up a minimalist space, this black and white throw pillow brings the wow factor through its various textures. There are also 3 additional alternative designs if want to load up your whole bed with them!
