Sean Litchfield for Homepolish

If you’re looking to throw a little more color and texture into the mix to refresh your home, kilim pillows can do the trick. Upgrade your space with true eclecticism for a chic, colorful, textural vibe that blends boho with modern décor. These pillows, made from the same flatweave, no-pile fabric as Turkish kilim rugs, help to bridge the gap between old and new in any room.

Kilim pillow colors vary from vivid to faded, making them a versatile choice to connect with many color palettes and themes throughout the home. And with diverse patterns inspired by regions of Eastern Europe, North Africa, Asia, and Scandinavia among others, these throw pillows lend a worldly appeal to any space.

Swapping out throw pillows has always been a solid go-to trick to transition a home from season to season, so it’s time for a little pillow talk. We found seven spaces with kilim pillows that will inspire you to upgrade your decorating game.

Out with the new, in with the old: Throw pillows covered in vintage kilim fabric give this elegant, modern living room an old-meets-new appeal. The soft, faded geometric pattern is just the right amount of color to add a little bit of luxe lumbar support to a neutral sofa. To create the style in your space, opt for designs with geometric patterns, like the Kilim Pillow Store's line of pillow covers with neutral, earthy hues.

Go Multicolored

Multicolor kilim pillows are great for picking up accent colors in décor around a bedroom to keep the space feeling connected. We love the way the pink shades in the stripes on these pillows match back to the art above the bed, and the way the difference in texture and saturation between them builds dimension in the space. Get the look in your bedroom by choosing pillows like the Kilim Pillow Store's striped multicolor design, which features simple patterns with warm colors, neutral shades, and a dark line of contrast in the center.

For a more modern twist on the kilim pillow, a color-block pattern in a bright, pastel palette proves that these throws aren’t just about boho vibes. These accent chair throw pillows pick up feminine shades in this living room for a layered, Cali-cool look with additional texture. Get this look by mixing a pastel, geometric-patterned kilim pillow like Burke Décor's Kelim Cushion with brightly-hued furniture.

Bring on the brights: These kilim bedroom throw pillows give this space a bold flavor that feels like it’s fresh from a global bazaar. The colorful stripes pop off a black-and-white backdrop and play off technicolor décor around the room, like the arrows on the wall, the bench at the foot of the bed, and the flowers and books on the nightstand. Dare we call this a pillow party? We love the Kilim Pillow Store's multicolor design with vibrant vertical stripes that also features geometric patterns for a pop of personality.

We love a moody bedroom, and a black-and-white kilim pillow is a perfectly simple finishing touch to add a little bit of pattern and texture to this calming space. The more substantial flatweave on this kilim pillow is a nice contrast to lighter-weight linen bedding and throw blankets for a beautiful texture mashup. Ferm Living's design has a refreshing blend of horizontal stripes and geometric shapes for a bold contrast to add character to any bedroom.

Style With Rich Hues

A kilim pillow is an essential layer for an eclectic, more-is-more living room equation. The worldly, collected appeal of this space is enhanced by the patterned pillow in the center of all the action. Something about the focused use of red and burgundy shades in this space just works, especially when paired with white walls and neutral furniture. We love this style from Grandin Road that blends rich red hues with warmer colors in a diamond-shaped design.
