Send off for fabric swatches to see the colours in the room. Colours can change depending on the natural light in the room. Blue can look green or red can seem orange. Some stores will lend out fabric books or hanging lengths, these are great for getting the colours and the mix of fabrics just right.
So many of us concentrate on matching colours and prints, they really dont need to match at all. Flowers and stripes or checks are great together and different shades of colours look good too. Dont feel you need to match your cushions with your curtains or furniture play around with fabric to see what works best for you.
Cushions were placed on chairs and benches for a lord or lady and it was a fashion statement that was designated to a person who was considered high in rank. Cushions were not for common people. In seventeenth century Spain, for example, a luxury cushion was a symbol of aristocratic authority.
A cushion is not only a practical item but also has a beautiful decorative element, a cushion should feel soft and comfortable. Lines, silks and cottons are very popular due to the nature of these fabrics. Possible design inspirations could be natural designs that use the colours and shapes of nature as inspiration to create a lovely atmosphere in your home. Colourful floral cushions look wonderful with traditional and classically elegant decor. In a modern and contemporary home, bold and strongly geometric cushion shapes may be considered.
