Looking for some new cushion ideas for your home? Look no further for a quick edit of some lovely options available now….and some are on sale!

Seriously though, who doesn’t love a cushion? I must confess I have too many and I still have some cushion covers that are yet to see the light of day but hey, I needed them at the time!

If you are looking for a quick makeover fix on a budget, adding new cushions to your sofa or bed can add an instant splash of colour and interest.

Top 3 tips when looking for cushion ideas:
  1. Think texture – chose soft, cosy textures to add comfort and bring interest. Adding different textures and materials can really make a statement and can also provide maximum comfort. Take your pick from soft velvets, linens, chunky knits or suede. If you prefer a neutral colour palette this can also work extremely well. You can create a paired back stylish look by choosing similar colours but picking cushions with different textures to make more of a statement.
  2. Pick an accent colour – Look around your home and pick an existing accent colour, this could be from your sofa, curtains or a much loved item of furniture. Let this guide your cushion choices and try a mix and match of patterns and block colours, remembering to keep the accent colour as a thread with the colours and tones throughout your cushions choices.
  3. How to style your cushions – For a relaxed look, group cushions together in different shapes and sizes and keep the larger cushions towards the back. For a more streamlined sophisticated look, opt for symmetry, think even numbers or just add one to each end.

One last thing to remember is………care instructions. Depending on where the cushions are placed – kids, pets or high traffic areas you may want to opt for an easy-care, machine washable option rather than a dry clean only. I very much learnt this the hard way!

I hope you found the cushion edit helpful; it really is a cost-effective way to make a change in your home without even having to touch a tin of paint.
