The right pattern can completely shift the tone of your space. A floral, for instance, might lend a bedroom a soft, more romantic feel, while a dynamic, graphic print can easily energize a living room. An unstudied, abstract design is particularly welcome in a more relaxed, bohemian interior, and a punchy animal print can look cheeky in almost any room. 

The easiest way to bring a bit of pattern into your home? Throw pillows.

A good throw pillow — or a pair, or a whole bunch of mixed-and-matched options — brings personality to an interior, whether you’re setting it as a final touch on a bed arrangement, or setting it strategically on a sofa or armchair. These details, while small, can define an entire room. So when it comes to picking the right throw pillows for your space, you want to consider your options carefully.

We know, of course, that there is an endless sea of options to pick from. So we did the work for you. These 18 throw pillows are Havenly designer-approved — we can guarantee they’ll give your space that special something it needs.
