Southwestern style is hot right now, and what better way to bring that trend into your apartment than with throw pillows? It’s much safer (not to mention cheaper!) to pull trending themes into your space with small accessories rather than with large furniture or rugs that require a huge commitment.

- Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
