Hi All,
I've been browsing through some amazing throw pillow designs for my living room. the general tones in my living room are off-white, creamy and mellow. I loved some of the more colorful pillow designs but was afraid they would appear to noisy of the whitish background of my furniture. what do you think?

Martha, I think those are gorgeous pillows but if the rest of your room is monotonal and basic white or beige, they might look a bit too "in your face".

However, if you spread these colors around the room, using accessories like vases, painting, area rugs, even curtains, then the "pop" could be moderated. perhaps a side chair upholstered in one of those colors with the "whitish" color used for a throw or pillows on that chair... You could also pull one of those colors out and paint a focal wall...

Something about a white room with splashes of color looks so CLEAN!

See how this white room was "splashed with color":

and this slide shows of "white rooms" with splashes of different color might give you some ideas:
