12 Modern Throw Pillows for the Minimalist Home

Let’s talk about pillows.

MORE specifically, mudcloth and leather pillows. These are the “it” accessory for creating a modern and minimalist home and are probably the most underrated detail.

As I’ve started working with more designs, I realized not all throw pillows are created equal. I used to be the girl that would invest money into furniture and statement pieces but would skimp out on the finishing touches (which are really the most important part.) I’d get whatever was on the sale rack of Home Goods and wonder why the room wasn’t pulling together the way I wanted.

After scouring the internet for different styles of throw pillows, I felt I was partial to the following:

1. Neutral

Natural and earthy color palettes always compliment a room best. The mix and match possibilities are endless and they don’t have to be boring! You can add texture and subtle patterns that will tie in with any aesthetic in a room.

2. Artisan

I love accessories that blend modern style with time-tested technique. I shop on Etsy to buy original, one of a kind pieces that are crafted using local materials.

3. Mudcloth

West-African inspired patterns draw on the rich textiles that are custom to these regions. Some say accent pillow, others say wall art. My favorite Mudcloth pillows can be found on the-citizenry.

  • Congratulations svets🍾you really did find love in a hopeless place😏 @polinnaaa #liketkit
  • I feel like brightening up my room for summer with these fun pillows from @shophesby 🌱
It’s the cutest little boho boutique and they’re having a sale today! ⫸⫸ use code “EXTRA” for 20% off your order. I also linked on my blog some of my favorite mix-and-match throw pillows that are super trendy right now. Mudcloth and leather are the buzzwords this year and I’m not mad about it😋
But on another note, can’t decide if I want to keep the color scheme crisp white or if I should add pops or color to my bedroom. HELP!
  • Sunshine on my mind🌞 these glasses are Karen Walker dupes and they were under $12🤭 I have the real ones in black and you can’t tell the difference- they’re a must-have! linked them here for you guys #liketkit #ltkunder50
  • .. I’m where I’m supposed to be, promise you’ll stay with me❤️ @noraenpure
  • How’s this for a statement piece? Convincing Pasquale to let me get an olive tree for the living room! 🤞🏼 @em_henderson
  • I can just picture it now, Sunday morning breakfast at this big beautiful table with our 7 kids running down the stairs🤣 Pasquale and I can’t wait to have a big family!
Is anyone else as obsessed with wood tones as I am?! It seriously never gets old

On another note, you’ll be seeing this chandelier again real soon because I just finished up @kristen_karalis apartment & it is to dieee for🌿🤩 This was my first (and probably favorite) interior project. Even though she resisted some ideas at first she trusted me with my vision and let me run with it & lets just say she’s officially the #hyggehome queen. I’ll be blogging the big reveal in early June!
  • Happy Mother’s day and Sunday friends. In case you need to be reminded, you are enough and you are appreciated! What a beautiful time to be a woman. Don’t underestimate yourself, ever. You are stronger, bolder, smarter and more capable than you may realize. Cheers to females uplifting and inspiring others, the world is a better place because of you.
Sooo I crossed off 2 major items on my list and it feels like a boulder has been lifted off of my shoulders. Office makeover complete✔️and wedding venue locked down✔️ (I am so over the moon to reveal the details on this >> It’s like the boho gods curated THE most perfect location I didn’t even know existed🧚🏼‍♀️) and what perfect timing too, I was about to throw in the towel out of frustration. It seems like every venue is an over-priced catering hall with the same factory style wedding. Can’t wait to share the planning with you guys!
OH and how fun is my office chair?! I wasn’t sure about it at first but I’m obsessssed. I’ll be sharing all of the details on my blog, I didn’t get a chance to post last night but it should be up by Monday🌛🌜
  • It’s OFFICE REVEAL day! I’m so happy I could cry. Here’s one of my favorite parts of the room, my zen little nook🌱
When designing this space it was important for me to have a creative corner where I can think/read/write sans distraction. I’ve been finding it hard lately to be alone in my own thoughts because of all the stimulation and instant gratification we have right at our fingertips. Gone are the days we’re forced to stare at a wall when we’re bored🤣
My goal is to implement more time to think completely unplugged and unfiltered with just a notebook and a pen - and maybe some hot lemon water. Just like the gym, client meetings and other non-negotiables, I’m challenging myself to block out 1 hour once a week to just think. 🧘🏼‍♀️✨
Anyone have any tips/advice for meditating?
PS- my pillow cases were just $39 (for ALL four!) I’ll be posting my whole office makeover on the blog tonight. #liketkit
  • My favorite lil svet♥️ (sorry @anna_kruz) #iabtsolutelydo
