We spend so much time perfecting our décor, whether it's styling our coffee table, updating our bedding seasonally, or organizing our entryway. But our outdoor spaces? Those often come as an afterthought. Example: Even though we said farewell to furniture sets in our homes long ago, they still seem to dominate our patios and balconies. So how do you infuse your outdoor space with as much personality as you do indoors? It all starts with a carefully selected pillow mix.

Sure, you may not be ready to upgrade your patio dining table and chairs or buy a whole new outdoor living room set, but throw a few pillows at the problem and you're well on your way to a serious upgrade. Besides, a few well-placed outdoor throw pillows will also make your space feel extra cozy and inviting. Ready to give your patio or balcony a much-needed face-lift? Start with some of our favorite outdoor throw pillows.
