Throw pillows can make a world of difference in decorating a space. Here, they invite a pop of orange in an otherwise neutral room. The window treatment add another pattern yet repeat the pillow color and the art adds strong elements with thoughtful regards to scale, proportion and balance.

The result is a symphony of texture, pattern and color that beckons you in.
