Cushions are now an item of everyday luxury that complete spaces ranging from living rooms and bedrooms to outdoor seating areas.
Not only will perfectly-placed cushions make your sofa or bed look great, they will make it appear more cosy and inviting too. And these days, cushions are one of the most cost-effective ways to refresh your home.
Invest in good-quality cushion inserts and swap over the cushion covers for an instant room refresh.
1. CO-ORDINATE CUSHIONS WITH EXISTING DECOR
Look for throw cushions in colours and patterns that will coordinate with the palette you are already using in your home.
The key to success with bolder prints is to balance them with cushions in neutral tones.
2. DARE TO GO BOLD
If you have a neutral colour theme in your living room, select two or three bold colours to inject a little depth into the space. The more neutral your room, the brighter your cushions can be.
3. MAKE THEM LOOK LIVED IN
Use a 'karate chop' in the middle of the cushion to create a crease in them – this will make them seem more lived in and loved. It will also help to break up uniform shapes, and unite cushions of different colours, scales or families.
4. VARY CUSHION SHAPE AND SIZE
Have all your cushions in the same regimented size can look very formal. Combine cushions of different sizes and shapes such as oval or oblong to create a homely and welcoming look.
5. GET YOUR SHINE ON
If your home consists of earthy, neutral colours, add some black to maintain a textured and edgy finish. Keep it chic and simple, and stick to the monochrome for a sophisticated edge.
