Roundup: 6 Great Uses of Long Throw Pillows

Me oh My Long Throw Pillow

Throw pillows can be a point of contention in the bedroom. Do you really need more pillows to decorate the bed than you do to actually sleep in it? Well, if you're a pillow minimalist or live with someone who is, the long throw pillow may be the great compromise you're looking for. 

Above, Me Oh My's Nicole used a long pillow that's super sophisticated without one bit of fuss.

Yup. I  thought I might get to see some 'uses' of throw pillows. This is pretty nonetheless.

Well to be honest I thought I was going to see pictures of different places to use them when I read the title. They are all pretty examples of using them on beds though.

I also love the idea of using them on a sofa. It seems like I'm always picking up pillows when the kids are around. This way, there'd only be one!

I think it looks so much better than a gazillion pillows on a bed. It's something I've been planning on doing in our bedroom make over since the first time I saw one of these long pillows.
