Every home needs a summer refresh. One way to bring the sunshine indoors is to add summery throw pillows to your couch and bed—or even on a porch or patio. While you can always add another cushion to your collection, also consider pillow covers. They come in a variety of sizes, textures, and shapes to fit the pillows you already have. Easy to wash and change with the seasons, they add a personal touch to your space, starting with your sofa. You can find affordable, unique options on Etsy, while retail giants such as Amazon and Target sell them in handy sets.

Florals are a popular summer theme for good reason. As the real flowers bloom, they bring joy. Who says an accent pillow can't do the same? Nautical designs are also great for the summer months, regardless of whether you live near a body of water or not. These small touches of seafaring fun can trend preppy Yacht club-ready or casual beach house. This year, artsy pillows are a must-have for summer. Finding inspiration in Monet or reminiscent of watercolors, these pillow and pillow covers are bright, bold, and beautiful.

Scroll down for a curated list of the most aesthetically pleasing pillows and covers for the summer months.
