Have you ever struggled to find the right cushions for your couch?
Some stylists make it look so effortless – and it can be! That’s why I’ve put together my top 5 hacks for choosing the right cushions that will take your living space to the next level.
Identify your colour palette
Have a look around your living space. Look at the walls, carpet, lounge and curtains – what colours are present?
Keep this close when you choose your scatter cushions – opt for 1 or 2 solid colours, then add ones with different textures and patterns.
2. Let your style dictate your cushions
What style is your home? If you have a traditional theme, opt for an even number of cushions with one large one at each end and a smaller one in front of it.
If you have a more casual, contemporary or eclectic vibe, incorporate an uneven number of cushions and none that are matching.
3. Mix up your shapes and sizes
Gone are the days when we have to have the same shape and size on our lounges.
It’s all about different sizes and shapes – matchy matchy is no longer the way to go.
4. Add some texture
Not keen for multiple coloured cushions? That’s okay, just stick with one specific colour way and then use different textures and patterns.
You’ll be blown away by the result!
5. Have a few variations for different seasons
Want a more relaxing feel in winter when you’re lounging around the house? But don’t want to give up some of your favourite cushions all year round?
Add some punches with pops of colour and patterns during the warmer seasons – then you can put out your more muted palettes when you make the switch in winter – or vice versa!
