Whether you're looking for something to add a little personality to your new dorm room or apartment for when school starts again, or if you're just looking for cheap and simple way to give your living quarters a new look, throw pillows are always a good idea. Throw pillows are an easy-on-the-budget way to give a room you're bored with a little more color and texture. One of my favorite throw pillows that I've seen recently is the Embroidered Multi-Damask Throw Pillow from Pier 1 Imports. It's combination of colors are gorgeous together and the Indian-inspired pattern help brighten up your place, while adding an air of beauty and exoticism. Just the right amount of bright hues and a pretty pattern from the trans-Atlantic makes this throw pillow especially eye-catching and can be yours for less than $25.00 a piece!Where to Buy: Pier1 ImportsPrice: $23.96Who: Idabone was the first to add the 'Pier1 Embroidered Multi-Damask Throw Pillow' to the Hive.

Here in San Francisco, which was one of the most relevant places for the 1960's radical movement, there is still strong evidence of this mod-style, crazy colorful, "flower power" time. Style from the 60's is most easily recognized with strange, fluid shapes, or angular, geometric ones and whirls of bright colors. Things were proudly done in man-made materials like plastics and rubber, and aimed to look "futuristic" (which, for some reason, meant no arm rests and other convenient comforts). While the Swingin' 60's is an era that's long gone, it's easy to hark back to a few decades ago and bring the color and style back into your living space. A few simple home accents and accessories, like brightly colored, slick-surfaced furnishings, interestingly shaped lamps and lighting, and other brightly hued, 60's-inspired items, is all it takes to give your home a radical vibe with a modern twist.
