I’m a firm believer that you can never have enough pillows. They add comfort, style, and a pop of color to any space. Some might say I have too many pillows, but can you really have too much of a good thing? Okay, yes you can, but that’s not going stop me. When buying pillows it’s important to keep a couple things in mind: color, style, washability. Yep, you read that right, washability. It’s important to see how easy it’ll be to keep your pillows clean. It’s great if you can find one that has a removable cover, so then you can just throw it in the washer. Try to stick with a theme also and see how all the pillows will work together. Here are 5 pillows from Target, aka my home away from home, that would look great in any dorm.

  1. Cream Paisley Oversize Lumbar Pillow

This would be great for a desk chair or on a couch.



 2.Yellow Pineapple Lumbar Pillow

Keep summer vibes around all year round with this super fun pineapple pillow! The metallic design is an extra bonus.


3. Chenille Throw Pillow in Blush 


Looking for something more subtle? This one has your name written all over it then. Mix it with some more patterned pillows to really bring everything together. Try finding some patterned pillows that have this or a similar color in it so everything stays cohesive.


4. Cane Chenille Lumbar Throw Pillow 

This one is classic and would look great in any room no matter what aesthetic you’re going for. Use this pillow as a way to tie everything together. It’s creamy white color won’t clash with anything and the pattern on it is super subtle.


5. Coral Sunshine Oblong Throw Pillow 

I love pillows with a cute saying on them. This is sure to brighten any space even when it’s not sunny outside.
