Comfy & Colorful: Outdoor Pillows For A Backyard Patio Refresh


We should have a giant pillow fight. All of us. A proper, socially distanced, all-over-the-world, let-it-all-out, pillow fight — where we all end up in healthy laughter and tears. Is there such a thing as a social media healthy-quarantined-pillow-fight-flash-mob? Maybe we should do that.

Says she who has no idea how to social media anything. So let’s start, here, with the pillows we can take outside, because safe fresh air is kinda everything, today. It’s at least a start.

Backyard Patio Decor Idea: Outdoor Pillows For A Pop Of Fun & Color

Speaking of, the pillow that started this whole post, is this one: I LOVE THIS PLACE. To which my current response, is you’d better. We aren’t going anywhere else right now. Make yourself comfortable right here at home, and count your blessings we’re here, safe and healthy.

Solid outdoor cushions, mostly neutral ones, and ALL the fun pops of throw pillows are the best!!!! Mostly because when our moods shift, we can affordably change the entire look of an outdoor situation by just trading out the pillows. And because what’s better than a great pillow for outdoor lounging? So here are the outdoor throw pillows I’d throw at you right now — if we were fighting.

And in case you missed it, we’d pop these pillows right on top of our favorite outdoor back yard patio furniture and along side some really pretty planters, too!

For a comfy, affordable backyard patio refresh: solid cushions (mostly neutral) & fun pops of outdoor pillows are best. A cozy home decor idea we're ready for.

1/ 2/ 3/ 4/ 5/ 6/ 7/ 8/ 9/ 10

1/ Tangerine Special Stripes » Comes in two sizes, a lumbar pillow and a big square, and three colors, and for a more special price tag on the special stripes, use code ATHOME for 20% off.

2/ Blue Zig Zags » Available in six sizes, and yes, that’s Sunbrella fabric, and yes the vendor has so many beautiful options! They are called Pillow Fever after all. Let’s not make light of that quite yet — too soon, way too soon.

3/ Bold Geometry » Fairly traded, beautiful pop of color, available in two colorways. Another one made from recycled plastic bottles. Seems to be a thing. A good thing.

4/ B&W Mud Cloth Beauty » This amazing price is for a set of four pillow covers…which is just mind blowing. And a total win for those of us who like to pile on the pillows. They are covers only. If you need inserts try these (six pack.)

5/ I LOVE THIS PLACE » Truth in blogging…this was the pillow that started this post. I mean seriously, is there a better pillow for sarcastic quarantine than this one? Also, she’s an Etsy vendor and will custom make whatever makes you giggle, if not these. For me, it was a toss up between these two as well: BE NICE OR LEAVE and THERE WERE RULES? (ya see what I did there with toss up?…that’s me sending you word love through pillow fights.) xoxo A

6/ Geometry Genuis In Full Color » This is another set of four covers, yay! And available in eight sizes, double yay! Such fun colors — and who couldn’t use a pop of color right now? Also, covers only, need inserts, found here, choose the right size.

7/ Stripes Forever (Reversible!!!) » Reverses to white with black stripes! Twice the fun!!!

8/ Just A Dash » LOVE this fun dash of color fun! Especially if you layer it over solid black throw pillows and a neutral canvas. DEAL OF THE DAY! It’s $15. Is that enough said?

9/ 2 Tone + Texture » On sale! And available in 2 color block options. Earth-friendly fibers, and the reverse is the same as the front, which is special and not true of all pillows.

10/ Not A Stripe » Love these not so straight lines in black and white beautiful goodness. Plastic bottles get new life to create this optical illusion of a beautiful pillow. And it’s on sale! And part of a whole collection that is found here.

OK, hit me back with your best outdoor pillow? What did we miss here? Happy fighting equals quarantine bliss. And healthy quarantine bliss with the family is everything right now. Now take it outside — the fights and the love.
