Bolster pillows are not just functional and comfortable; they also serve as fantastic decorative accessories to elevate your home décor. With their unique cylindrical shape, bolster pillows offer versatility and can be used in various settings throughout your home. In this blog, we will explore creative ideas and inspirations on how to decorate with bolster pillows, helping you infuse style and coziness into your living spaces. 

1. Enhancing Your Couch

Transform your plain couch into a cozy oasis by adding bolster pillows. Achieve a designer look by placing a pair of matching bolster pillows on either end of the couch to create symmetry. Coordinate the colors or patterns with your existing throw pillows for a cohesive look. Alternatively, mix and match different sizes and textures to add visual interest and depth. 

2. Stylish Bed Accents

Upgrade the look of your bed by incorporating bolster pillows into your pillow arrangement or, better yet, choose an extra-long bolster cushion as a single statement piece on your bedding for an ultimate minimalist look. You'd be surprised at the difference this oversized bolster pillow can make to your whole bedroom! Consider bolster pillows made with upholstery or performance fabrics, as these are the most durable and suitable for frequent use.

3. Daybed Delight

Perhaps one of the most classic uses of bolster pillows is with daybeds. By placing two bolsters on either side of the daybed (we recommend the 8x24" or 8x36" bolster pillow sizes), the cushions can serve as armrests when you sit back to unwind with a good book or as neck rolls if you want to lie down for a nap time. Hence, it is no exaggeration to say that a pair of bolster pillows is a must-have to create a comfortable and stylish daybed!

4. Outdoor Oasis

Extend the use of bolster pillows to your outdoor space. Spruce up your patio furniture with weather-resistant bolster pillows. Opt for vibrant colors or patterns that complement your outdoor décor. Arrange them on lounge chairs or benches to add comfort and style to your outdoor oasis.

5. Window Seat Comfort

Have you ever find yourself in this situation where your window seat looks amazingly cozy with carefully selected throw pillow sets but when you try to relax there, it always lacks the back support you are hoping for? We have the perfect solution. By incorporating bolster pillows with firm foam insert on either end and/or along the backrest, depends on the depth of your seat and your intended use of the area, it will not only add aesthetic appeal, but also bring lumbar support you've been missing all day long!
