Choosing Cushions

These home accessories are the quickest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to build and express your interior style. Below we explore the key elements to consider when buying cushions and how they can work best in your home interior.

Colours and patterns add individual style and personality. Transform your living spaces into a home you look forward to relaxing in while enjoying comfort, softness and style. 

Colour Story

Consider the other colours and patterns in the room’s décor before you select your cushions. Do you want to coordinate and compliment your colour palette with the colour of your sofa, quilt cover or wall paint? Or add a striking contrast colour within your space?

You can easily refresh an old sofa or accentuate your quilt cover set and room décor with a statement cushion. Use an accent colour or bold bright hue against a neutral palette to inject a splash of colour and invigoration into a room.

Vivid, bright colours can bring energy and life to a room for an attention-grabbing style. A key tip when playing with bold colour is to incorporate the strongest, brightest colours in the smallest doses, which can be reflected though size in smaller accent cushions.

If you prefer a more serene palette, layering cushions in subtle neutral or tonal shades adds sophisticated depth for a more harmonious style.

Styling - Mix and Match Colour, Fabric and Size

Have fun and pair contrasting fabrics in a playful way. The cushions you choose don’t all have to be the same size, colour or even the same design. Depending on the look you want to achieve, adding variety using different shapes and sizes can create a visually interesting element to a sofa or couch. The best thing about creating a mix-and-match style is you can express your individuality with carefully selected designs to create a unique one of a kind look.

  • Try layering cushions to create casual elegance.
  • Pile different textures to create a bohemian eclectic style of a nomadic traveller who has collected different styles to reflect appreciation of craft and cultural influences. Consider contrasting two completely different pattern styles such as a floral motif and geometric pattern between a solid coloured cushion to achieve an effortlessly stylish and trendy look.
  • To achieve a coordinated look, match with your quilt cover and style your cushions lining them up in a uniform manner for that clean, hotel-esque look.
