Five Beautiful Ways to Style your Cushions – for a Simple, Easy Update

Updating smaller accessories, such as cushions, is a simple and inexpensive way to refresh your home and inject personality into a room, without overhauling your interiors scheme.

Start with the soft base linen colors for your sofa, and then try mixing in the hotter pink cushions for added zing. But, if you’re more reserved in your approach, then opt for the soft powders blues and neutrals.

1. CONSIDER YOUR COLOUR PALETTE

Adding vibrant cushions is a simple and inexpensive way to inject a bold hit of color into a neutral room. Alternatively, if the room is already colorful, rather than using shades that match your existing scheme, opt for complementary hues to create a sense of cohesiveness. Choose cushions with piping in a contrasting shade as these little details draw the eye. Monochrome cushions also make a statement as the absence of color can be just as striking as its presence.

2. DON’T BE AFRAID TO MIX PATTERN

Cushions are a great way to introduce pattern into a room. From florals and ikats, to geometrics and animal motifs, there is a great deal to choose from. Combine different patterns to make a strong style statement but to avoid overwhelming a room, mix large scale pattern with smaller scale prints.

3. COMBINE DIFFERENT TEXTURES

Combine different textures to add depth and create an eclectic look. Velvet is a perennial favourite for cushions because it feels luxurious, whilst linen has a relaxed feel. In terms of filling, feather and down allow for a plusher feel than synthetic fillings.

4. PLAY WITH SHAPE

Pair square cushions with rectangular shapes for a relaxed look. Choose cushions in tones of the same colour to avoid the scheme looking too informal or haphazard.

5. DON’T TRY TOO HARD

Cushion arrangements shouldn’t look too formal or overly plumped. Whilst thought does go into arranging cushions, they should look casually arranged to feel relaxed and inviting.
