Get Creative with Cushions
Written by Reed Gift Fairs

Cushions have always been the finishing touch to a room, the icing on the cake that takes a room from nice to fabulous. Cushions are also a quick and simple way to change a room giving the space an instant update.

But how do you know which cushions to buy so you can stay ahead of the latest looks?

Ethnic Prints: Taking colours from nature, ethnic prints can add vibrancy and interest to a neutral colour scheme.

Texture:  Using cushions to add texture is popular in 2015. We are seeing cushions made from leather, cowhide, fur and chunky knit becoming very popular. Adding a cushion that’s tactile can help create a feeling of comfort that’s important in a room as we all like to have something that is not only pleasing to the eye but feels good too.

Mix and Match different patterns and shapes: This will give an immediate visual impact. Select cushions from a similar colour palette or hue as there needs to be some visual link for this to work best.

 Linen: Linen cushions are everywhere at the moment and look great in any space. They give a soft, relaxed feel to a room.

Remember cushions aren’t just for updating the lounge/living area; they look great in many rooms including the dining room and bedroom and why not throw some oversized cushions onto the floor as well!

So go wild, show your personality and update those cushions!
