Not only do throw pillows provide an affordable option for giving your space a makeover, they can change the tone of your interior with one small pop of color and pattern.

Today it’s all about geo style. Which brings us to our first featured image… One word: yummy! Isn’t the photo below delicious?!

These geometric pillows from ferm LIVING are powerful in their simplicity. For example, the Black Mini Stick Cushion (displayed vertically below) boasts a look that is modern…and a little bit ’80s in all the right ways.
