Cozy accent pillows are the perfect way to say hello to fall. Snuggle up by the fire, read a good book in bed or simply used to style your home, they’re the textile accessory of the season. Think velvets, corduroy, boucle and soft weaves, in color palettes of burnt orange, deep reds and browns – it’s autumn appeal like no other. Plus, they’re relatively inexpensive. Compared to investing in new furniture, bedding or even redecorating, you can pick up a few (or more) throw pillows for a teeny budget. 

From as little as $5 there are pillows from your favorite home decor stores, such as Pottery Barn, West Elm and Target. And cheap doesn't stop at chic with cute throw pillows from Anthropologie, Wayfair and Urban Outfitters. But if you’d like to shop with the small businesses in mind this year, then Etsy have plenty to hand too. 

So go, fuel your throw pillow addiction and add some seasonal options to your collection. Scatter them on your fall bedding set and team with the rest of your fall decor for a full fall set-up. Once you’re sitting comfortably and your home is looking cozy, we’re sure you won’t regret it.

How we chose these fall throw pillows

Buying a throw pillow is by far the easiest way to switch up your space by changing the color palette or introducing new patterns and textures. They're relatively affordable, if you compare to completely redecorating your home, and are one of the most fun things to shop for (in my opinion).

Like many, I'm not the type of person who has a big budget to spend on decorative décor pieces that only work for a few months throughout the year. That's why, I've made sure some of these fall throw pillows are perfect for summer, spring and the rest of the seasons, providing they work with your living or bedroom aesthetic. 

How do I choose a fall throw pillow?

There are so many fall throw pillows on the market it can be difficult to know how to choose which few you'd like. So before you dive in to the piles of pillows out there (as comfy as that may sound), we've got all the advice on finding the style fit for you and your home. 

Senior Buyer at Anthropologie (opens in new tab), Brittany Peacock suggests: "A great sized pillow, like our 22” Square Velvet Pillow (opens in new tab) will set the foundation as a back pillow to any pairing. This pillow is also great because it uses a linen blend on the reverse so you can flip it around if you want to switch up the texture or fabrication. If you're wanting to make a statement, then a sphere shaped pillow is a trend-forward choice. And to bring an element of character and infuse color to the room, choose a patterned pillow that speaks to you!" 

How do I decorate my home for fall with textiles?

From fall throw pillows and blankets to wreaths and garlands, decorating your home for fall can easily get a little too much. With decor galore, it's not as simple as scattering a few fall pillows. In fact, there's a certain way to do things, if you're wanting to style your home for the season. Senior Buyer at Anthropologie (opens in new tab), Brittany Peacock advises: "In updating your home for fall with throw pillows I would recommend first identifying the space or furniture piece you want to add coziness to, so you can determine size and the number of pillows needed. To create a really layered moment, differentiate size and shape across the pillows, and very important – incorporate texture!"

Otherwise there are plenty of fall decorating ideas out there, including some that don't require any cost. Perhaps you'd like to DIY a fall wreath or simply light one of the best candles instead. Whatever you choose, there's more ways than one to create that cozy atmosphere you've been dreaming of.
