When you don't want to completely redecorate a room but you feel like a change or a freshening up is in order, switching up your throw pillows—on chairs and couches, in breakfast nooks and on beds—is an easy fix.

Whether a seasonal transition is in order or you want to totally revive the mood of a room, throw pillows in a new texture, pattern or shape will make a bigger difference than you think. Transitioning from linen to velvet in the winter, for example, or a faux fur even, can make your living room or bed much more cozy. Or trading out a floral pattern for an animal print or French toile might add unexpected sophistication to your favorite accent chair.

Ahead, we found 10 of the most stunning and beautiful throw pillows that will bring new life and energy to any spot in your home.
