5 Yellow Pillows to Punch Up Your Space


From the pages of our favorite design mags to PANTONE’s spring color report, yellow is in for spring and summer. And throw pillows are a great, low-commitment way to incorporate this color into a room, because they instantly add a summery accent that evokes the sun.

We’ve uncovered five eco-friendly throw pillows in various shades of yellow:

  1. Paper Cloud Poppies Square Pillow (pictured above)
    With a fun, quirky design by Paper Cloud, this pillow is hand-printed on linen using water-based inks.
  2. Organic Cotton Austere Pillow
    Handmade by fair trade artisans in India, this organic cotton pillow uses eco-friendly natural dyes to complement your couch, bed, or favorite chair. It’s available in several other colors, too.
  3. Pure Sunshine Feather Pillow Etsy seller OceanBottega uses new and reclaimed fabrics in her creations. This pale yellow pillow is made of cotton polyester with a feather insert. It’s even machine washable!
  4. Primose Kapok Pillow
    Buttercup yellow linen and cream linen flowers create a cheerful combination. This pillow is stuffed with kapok – a natural, fluffy alternative to synthetic stuffing or down.
  5. Gold Waves Throw Pillow
    We love how the color-coordinated pom-poms add a playful, yet polished touch to this pillow, which is made from organic cotton sateen and is printed by hand.
