In particular, this is the perfect season to make your backyard oasis cozy, warm and inviting.

Continue reading for more ideas on making your outdoor living area warm and inviting with plush pillows.
About Our Outdoor Toss Pillows
At Hauser’s Patio & Rattan, we offer outdoor toss pillows in a popular 18” x 18” size. They are made from Sunbrella fabric, which is specially designed to withstand a number of weather conditions, including sun, wind, rain and sea spray. The fabric is also water repellant, fire retardant, stain-resistant and fade-resistant. Our outdoor toss pillows are available in nearly 80 different colors and patterns, so there is one or more sure to beautifully match your existing outdoor décor. Some of our pillows can also be customized with contrasting piping or fringe.
Ideas for Decorating with Throw Pillows
Outdoor toss pillows may not come to mind first when you think about decorating your outdoor living room, but these small gems can make a big difference in the overall looks of the space.
For instance, investing in throw pillows of various patterns and colors makes it easy for you to change your outdoor décor with the seasons. With fall just a couple days away, you could easily add pillows in tones of gold, orange and red to your existing seating arrangements to brighten things up. A plaid pattern that incorporates these hues also looks very “autumn.” For Christmas, red, green and even blue and silver are good choices. Black and white work year-round.
Think of adding outdoor toss pillows that contrast with the upholstery of your furnishings. This is a way to visually pop out colors and draw the eye. This is especially true if you have chosen an upholstery fabric in a neutral color, such as beige or gray. Unexpected contrasts, such as orange on gray or purple and green on beige add a sophisticated touch.
How about the number of outdoor toss pillows on a sofa or sectional? If your style of décor tends to be modern, choose an odd number of pillows. If you favor a more traditional style, stick with an even number, such as two on each end of a sofa or a pair doubled up on an armchair.
Consider unexpected places for outdoor toss pillows. A couple large pillows casually leaning up against a half wall or patio roof post looks inviting. Add one to each lounge chair poolside for the ultimate in comfortable sunbathing. Place a stack of outdoor toss pillows inside a cabana. An extra pillow on top of an ottoman makes for a super comfy cushion when putting your feet up at the end of a long day.
Think cozy and comfortable when decorating your outdoor living room and add lots of outdoor toss pillows and other accessories to instantly update the space.
