We've all done the impulsive , 'I need that cushion' purchase either in store or online & then once its on the couch or bed you have the realisation that it doesn't go as well as it did in your mind when you bought it.
So we've plumped up 3 quick tips that you should consider before making a cushion purchase so that when it's at home on your couch or bed, you are 1000% satisfied with your decision.
The 1st step before making a purchase is look at what colours are currently in your lounge or bedroom, from here decide what colours compliment the room most. This will often narrow down the cushions you'll gravitate to. (Side note- if you're still unsure what colours would work well in your space you can always ask us, we're now offering a free design service where you can either tell us what your space looks like or even take a photo & we'll then photoshop the best options for your space so you have an actual visual image to look at - makes deciding so much easier !)
THE 3 KEY TIPS
Couch= Less is more
Your couch needs to remain inviting yet still comfy. This means even though you want 10 cushions on your couch, go with 4-5 instead. Balance is the key to styling your couch - anchor the sides with 2 on each, the one to the back should be the supporting act- meaning simple in colour & the one facing outwards should be where you inject colour or patterns - creating interest & vibrancy.
Bed = More is better
For your bed – aim for the layered look. You want to accentuate the feeling of instant sleepiness by a bed filled with fluffy clouds! With the bed – your choices are more limitless; go with a variety of shapes and sizes! Scatter a bunch of cushions that a based around the same colour palette as your bed spread and then insert a patterned or different textured cushion to be the centrepiece.
Colour by Season
Cushions are one of the easiest ways to update your decor & instantly give a room a fresh new feel. We like to break down our styling by seasons. In spring & summer gravitating to more earthy, warm, lighter, brighter colours & in winter going darker to create a cozy, comforting space - think your navy's & greys.
