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.
It really is so simple and a really inexpensive way to make a huge difference. The earliest record of when people started using cushions as a decorative piece of furniture was in the medieval times. Cushions were then used in grand houses and luxurious mansions. At that time they were not made out of the great assortment of fabrics available today, they were all made in leather - How lucky are we!
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.
Think of the colours outside - bright red berries, deep green holly and snow in Winter. Bluebells, daffodils and crocus in Spring. Summer just calls out for bright colours and flowers and Autumn think of the falling leaves in golds and reds and the juice of rich dark blackberries.
