One of the very first rules of styling your new living room couch is- if it comes with matching cushions, throw them out!
Your home as a whole should be a representation of your family and your personality, the cushions you choose are one of the simplest ways to show this without having to make any drastic changes.
Whether you want to style your living space or your bedroom, with a couple of simple guidelines you will have your home looking fab in no time.
Adding different textures in different cushions creates interest. It stops a room from looking "flat" so choose cushions made from different fabrics and materials or a statement cushion with some embellishment.
Fun vibrant colours creating a cool tropical vibe.
Whether you love a neutral pallet or want to go all out bright, it's important to make sure you have an anchor colour. Pick a colour from either an artwork or floor rug in the room and echo it in your cushions. It doesn't have to match, just help to tie the whole room together.
A soft feminine floral balanced by the geometric patterns and texture of an embroidered cushion.
By using different size and shaped cushions you will again create interest and impact, if you're not big on bold colours or patterns a smaller rectangular cushion or rolled cushion is the perfect opportunity to add a little without stepping out of your comfort zone too much.
With muted tones and natural textures of cotton this combo has boho coastal sorted.
As with texture, adding different patterns will create interest, don't be afraid to use contrasting patterns (ie. stripes and spots). One of my favourite combinations is a floral cushion with bold stripes. To stop it looking too busy though you can add a solid colour cushion as a good base. A wonderful combination is a floral pattern with a velvet cushion, or look for geometric patterns in embroidery etc.
The most feminine combo of florals and velvets it works for creating a soft pretty bedroom or reading nook.
Gone are the days of having to have matching cushions on either end of your couch, express your style and get a little creative. Experimenting with cushions has to be one of the easiest ways to change up your décor and discover your style.
