Quick Home Makeover Tips Using Cushions
Ever feel like giving your home a makeover without committing to weekends of hard labour and putting a big hole in your pocket? There are some great ways to spice things up around your home that are quick, easy, and affordable and which will immediately freshen up a room. One way to do this is to add some beautiful new cushions to your decor. It might be your living area or your bedroom, a guest room or just your favourite comfy chair that needs a lift. You don’t have to replace the coverings or paint the walls and renew the floor coverings – you can add a really decent splash of colour with simply cushions.
Cushion covers come in all shapes and sizes now and also in a stunning range of colours and fabrics; so you can mix and match to your heart’s content! I love the wonderful geometric designs available now. Fresh spring colours – breezy blues, new greens and a splash of snowy white will bring any room to life! If you choose the colours you want (two or three will do it) and combine a pattern or two that are similar but different, then top it off with a bold coloured plain cushion, the effect is really quite dramatic. Different textures can also make a great statement and a real point of interest in any room. Shaggy fabrics and soft suedes add a touch of luxury or you can go boho with tassels and velvets and rich jewel tones.
Mix it Up
Maybe that armchair that you really love to snuggle up in is still your favourite but needs a little bit of character added – you can’t go past a well chosen cushion to liven things up!
You might prefer something really funky or a little more subtle and inviting; or you may choose some lively patterns and textures using just two or three well chosen colours and designs. Whatever your particular fancy, there are plenty of cushion covers to choose from. I love to mix and match different sizes and shapes to give a balanced feel – especially in the bedroom! The smaller rectangular cushions are great for this and will save you some room on your bed!
To get some inspiration on what colours and fabrics there are to play with, I did the only sensible thing to do and checked out what is available online. I found a great range of beautiful decorative cushions– it doesn’t matter what your taste, there’s something to please everyone and to suit all seasons! The only trouble I had was making up my mind which ones I want; the choice is incredible! Why not get your creative on and spruce up the home for the change of seasons. You’ll have so much fun your home will feel fresh and new again!
