What white Tees and blue jeans are to your wardrobe, throw pillows and throws are to your living room - Yes, these are our living room essential accessories. Here's our list of what you MUST have in your living area.
1. Throw Pillows:
Decorative throw pillows are a great way to add some accents and color splashes to any room, especially the living room. Throw a few pillows on your couch and chair and let it do the magic. In fact floor pillows are comfy elements too for the room.

2. Accent Rugs:
The second most essential to jazz up your decor and bring some nice structure to the room. You can go for dhurrie for a casual ethnic look or some modern shags for a more chic contemporary look
Just came across this beautiful yellow wool dhurrie on Pinterest
One or two throw blankets casually thrown over your couch or your chair is just perfect. Toss out the lighter cotton ones in the winter and bring in some soft warm wool or cashmere.

4. Accent lights
We often overlook the soft tones that right kind of lighting brings into a room. We found some of these @Maison&Objet in Paris and completely fell in love with it (See my full post on Home Decor Trends in 2015 from Paris here)
