Accent pieces are an easy way to update any room. Introducing fresh colors and styles with decorative items and textiles can instantly transform the entire ambiance at a fraction of the cost you might spend completely refurbishing the same space.

Throw pillows offer a clever way to add new color, texture and patterns. Introduce a more luxurious look with this pillow trio featuring the new Buttercream collection of continental craft components, finished home decor items, baking supplies and unique print fabrics create by and available only at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
