Accessories are to a room what icing is to a cake – typically a room needs accessories to feel complete. Pillows are a wonderful way to perfectly complete sofas and chairs as both visual and comfort elements. Whether simple or intricate fabrics, embellished or plain, handmade or ready-made, pillows all fulfill the same basic need for comfort.

Pillows are incredibly simple to make, but if that’s not your cup of tea and you want to buy your pillows already made, try shopping at stores like TJ Maxx, Pottery Barn and Marshalls. There are a lot of ways to customize ready-made pillows with embellishments which will take your pillows over the top!

Here are my favorite do-it-yourself pillow designs to inspire you to complete your home decor in preparation for fall:

This embellished flower pillow is simply beautiful from KiKi Creates. The embellishment could easily be added to pillows you already have!

I’m crazy about the bright, funky colors and design of this mod peacock pillow from Positively Splendid.

How adorable is this diy sweater pillow from Brassy Apple!? The rosette flowers are made from the sweater cuffs.

The spectacular colors in this adorable fall tree pillow from Cluck Cluck Sew design is just beautiful. It’s a great way to use up pieces from your scrap bag!

Stencil your own pillows from Tatertots & Jello that are painted and washable.

Make a simple neutral statement with this ruched muslin pillow from Just Another Hangup.

The red and aqua flower petals on this pillow from Blue Susan Makes are exquisite.

The pleated, colorful design of this scrappy rose pillow from Cluck Cluck Sew is breath taking.

Chevron patterns like this diy striped pillow from Little Green Notebook are huge right now.

An adorable bow pillow cover from E Tells Tales would be perfect for a girls room.

Obviously, pillow designs run the gamet from super fancy to simply elegant. Regardless of which style you prefer, I hope you are inspired to cozy up your home for fall with pillows!

What about you – are you a pillow maker or a pillow buyer?
