In case you haven’t noticed there is a pillow trend happening right now in the bedroom and we are very into it over here at EHD. Although we covered it a few years back on the blog here, it still remains just as relevant, functional, and stylish which is why we wanted to introduce it to any new readers or any of you out there that are still trying to perfect the “how do I style 12 decorative throw pillows on my bed every single morning” routine, which may or may not be working for you. Plus there are a lot more out there now (perhaps they read the blog?).
Bed styling is tough, and something that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy. And although the pinterest worthy beds floating around on the internet may seem like they have simply tossed the duvet perfectly across the bed and draped a blanket casually on top in one swift easy go, said process can sometimes take rounds and rounds of revisions to get that “effortless casual” look that we all want for our beds. And because no one has the time or the mental capacity to spend more than a few minutes making their bed every morning, for you we introduce the “extra long lumbar pillow” to help simplify the process.
Forget the three, six, nine, twelve…. decorative pillows and just throw on one of these long decorative rectangular pillows IF you want a decorative pillow at all. You may lean more simple and not even want to add a decorative pillow at all to your current bed setup, but if you are looking to add something decorative without the complications of all those extra pillows, then the pillows that we have pulled together for you below can help you out. We have one currently on our bed and lay it in front of our two sleeping pillows when we make the bed in the morning, and at the end of the night we can just grab it off and throw it on the end of the bed bench. Which is much easier to deal with then a handful of decorative pillows on the floor.
Our friend Amber Lewis, is also a fan of the trend and although we both added a small accent pillow in front of the larger lumbar, it is definitely not necessary and your bed will still look pulled together with just one large pillow.
And in case you still aren’t convinced that and need some additional visual proof that this pillow styling trick works, here are a few others that we are into from the web to give you a bit more inspiration.
The Vintage Round Top, which is where we stayed as a team during our Round Top shopping trip even pulled it off with a JUMBO sized lumbar pillow in the Master Bedroom (which I obviously didn’t mind calling mine during our stay).
All of the pillows we’ve pulled together below are at least 30″ long which means that they are large enough to use for either a queen or king sized bed, and although we can’t promise a better nights sleep with them, we can promise a far easier bed making routine in the morning. So, here are a few of our favorites divided up by price.
1. Coral Plaid Kilim Pillow | 2. Diamond Sweater Knit Pillow | 3. Yellow Silk Dot Pillow | 4. Multi Color Stripe Kilim Pillow | 5. Gray and Tan Striped Pillow | 6. Cream Pompom Pillow | 7. Needle Embroidery Motifs Kilim Pillow | 8. Tan Striped Pillow | 9. Orange, Black and Tan Kilim Pillow | 10. Light Gray Pillow | 11. Yellow Floral Pillow | 12. Yellow Striped Pillow | 13. Blue Plaid Pillow | 14. Navy and Cream Striped Kilim Pillow | 15. Charcoal Gray Pillow | 16. Gray Uneven Chevron Pillow
For the price I love A LOT of these guys, but would definitely add: #2 and #6 to my collection and the inner granny in me is really wanting to find a place for #11. Some of these are one of a kind, so if you like them snag them up quick, but we did try and pull from retailers and vendors that have quite a large selection just in case one of these does sell out. Next up is the $50-$150 category.
1. Orange Mexican Pillow | 2. Gray Striped Pillow | 3. Mauve Velvet Pillow | 4. Indigo Boho Pillow | 5. Black Lined Linen Pillow | 6. Shag Puff Pillow | 7. Hermosa Pillow | 8. Indigo Rope Pillow | 9.

Fringe and pleating are having a major moment for me right now so I obviously love #16 and #26 but I also love #18, #5, and #25. Next up is our last category at over $150. And while some of these may seem a bit expensive keep in mind you will only need one of these pillows to use on your bed rather than a handful of smaller decorative pillows.
