Reese Witherspoon is an accomplished actress, producer, and women’s advocate who, lately, has been breaking barriers on social issues—such as sexual harassment and the gender wage gap—as one of the celebrity faces of the Time’s Up movement. But Witherspoon’s latest altruistic gift to the world comes in the form of a simple, genius piece of home-decorating advice.

In a video for home-decor retailer Crate and Barrel, the Academy Award winner said that whenever she gets an itch to redecorate her home, she doesn’t simply buy new furniture. Instead, she makes a much smaller investment and selects new throw pillows to provide fresh, colorful accents that both spruce up and change the feel of a room. It’s a way less labor intensive and far more budget-friendly approach to breathing new life into your home sanctuary.

“You can play with different color palettes. Mix different shapes and sizes. Give different textures a try.” —Reese Witherspoon

“You can play with different color palettes. Mix different shapes and sizes. Give different textures a try,” she said, adding, “There really is no wrong way to pillow!”

Add this to your list of other genius affordable hacks—like making your indoor plants pull double duty as chic sculptures—to use in home decorating, along with how to update your apartment if you’re not allowed to paint.
