Decorating with Pillows – My #1 Tip


My name is Kelly and I am a pillow addict.

Whew, it feels good to come clean. That’s the first step in conquering my problem after all.

Oh who are we kidding, I love pillows, glorious pillows and I’ll keep on buying them, fluffing them, rearranging them and swapping them in and out whenever the mood strikes.

Fellow pillow hoarders … I mean lovers, unite!  This one’s for you.

I’m sharing my #1 tip for making any pillow look 100% better (more expensive, luxurious and comfortable).

Now let’s talk about pillow inserts.

Best Place to Buy Down/Feather Cheap Pillow Inserts

Ikea is a great source for cheap inserts but if you don’t have one nearby, head to your nearest HomeGoods or the home department of Marshall’s or T.J.Maxx. Then, head to the clearance section and look for the size you need (it doesn’t matter what the pillows look like, you’re only here for the inserts).

Make sure the pillow has a zipper then check the inserts to make sure they are what you are looking for (check the tags on the insert – I like down or feather/down fill). Then scoop up those discounted pillows, take them home, remove the offensive cover and use the insert for your favorite pillow.

P.S. I want to take this time to apologize to my poor family who has to move piles of pillows before they can sit down!

  1. Oh my! Loved this post! Your video was terrific! I was thinking wow, Sushi is lying down so nicely and then we got to the bloopers! Cracked me up! I feel the same way you do about those horrible uncomfortable pillow inserts and I’m always changing mine out. Have a wonderful long holiday weekend!

  2. Thanks so much! I love love pillows, too, but never have liked the hardness of the inserts like you say. I love Marshall’s and TJ Maxx so will look. Sushi really steals the show! She sneezes very “ladylike” by the way. 🙂

  3. Sorry to be a downer…play on words, but I have learned that feathers and down are cruelly plucked from baby ducks and geese. That is why I no longer buy those pillows. It might be worth looking into. So many products we think of as natural are made by harming animals. I’m kind of a hypocrite because dairy is one of the worst offenders, and I haven’t given it up as I have all other animal products.
