It’s a bit of a girly cliche to have a ton of throw pillows everywhere, but let’s face it, they make your couch or bed look more cozily catalog-like. Plus, if you don’t have the bones to drop on a total makeover, switching up the linens and pillow covers is a great way to a give a room a subtle new look without spending a lot of dough.
