One of the best home decor tips I have ever learned came from Jen (City Farmhouse) last year at the Haven Conference. You ready? Use pillow covers with inserts instead of throw pillows. Makes sense. I just don’t know why I didn’t think of that before.
Why I love them
I have young kiddos. We’re talking lots of germs, lots of handprints, lots of mess. I don’t know how many times I tried to spot clean throw pillows or throw them in washing machine only to have them turn into big lumps of Poly-Fil. Pillow covers have solved all of those problems for me. Once a week, I remove the covers and wash them. Nice and clean and my pillow inserts don’t lose their shape.
Cleanliness aside, I love having down and down alternative inserts instead of Poly-Fil. I never would have thought that it could make such a difference. It adds more dimension to the furniture and the decor because my pillows aren’t flat against my couch anymore. Simple fixes that make a world of difference…those are the changes I like to make.
My favorite places to buy
