Cushions play an important part in your home. They add colour and comfort and can totally change the feel of a room. Change your cushions by the seasons, a much less expensive way than redecorating but achieves similar results. 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.
Cushions are very ancient items of furniture, they date back to the Middle Ages. Originally a cushion was quite large in size, and firm enough to serve as a seat. Over time as furniture has evolved from hard robust items, to the smaller more comfortable furniture that we see today, the cushion has evolved to be smaller in size, and could now be considered a luxury item. Nowadays there is a wealth of cushions to choose from for your home.
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.
