Looking for an inexpensive way to give your living room a little makeover? Look no further than the humble cushion to give your space a do-over that won’t break the bank.

When it comes to home decorating, if you keep your base neutral (think neutral sofas and rugs) then you can afford to experiment with your cushion choices. Cushions are a great way to try out new décor themes. As transient items that can be easily replaced, cushions allow you to take a leap of faith on whatever this season’s hottest trend may be. You can be safe in the knowledge that if it that trend is replaced with another, then you can simply make changes without overhauling the entire room.

With big ticket furniture items in neutral tones and timeless designs, you’ll want to use cushions and throw rugs to add some pattern, texture and warmth to your living areas. Beautiful velvet or warm, knitted cushions are a gorgeous way to introduce some texture. Add a bold pattern to your cushions to jazz up otherwise safe décor and furniture picks.

There’s nothing quite like a few tropical-themed cushions to make your home feel like a holiday resort destination. Bullseye Imports have a range of cushions perfect for this on-trend ‘resort’ or ‘jungle’ theme. From palm-printed natural beauties, to jungle green velvet cushions to add a touch of luxe to a room, they’ve got you covered.

Pattern is a great way to add interest, but before you consider getting a patterned sofa, keep in mind that it is a big investment that may well overwhelm your space. Instead, try adding some patterned cushions, like the ones pictured by DLUX, to create interest and a splash of colour.
