Decorating with cushions

The perfect way of giving a room an instant makeover is to add scatter cushions, or to complete the final touch to your interior (we can make these through our made to measure service). Here are some tips on how to achieve the wow factor.

1. Colour
Adding brightly coloured cushions is a quick way of transforming a room. Linking up with other soft furnishings or accessories, such as a pair of curtains or a piece of art, will pull the whole room together in harmony. Choose colours wisely as certain colours can dictate the mood of a room. Blues and greens are calming and relaxing, perfect for bedrooms, while oranges and reds are warm and more suitable for social spaces.

2. Textures and patterns
Play around with different textures and patterns to break up colour blocks. Mix velvet, fur, ruffles, suede, sequins and tassles to add a new dimension. Your personal style will determine how brave you are when it comes to mixing patterns. Ease yourself in gently by using similar colour palettes and limit yourself to two print schemes, polka dots and florals for example. Cushions with alternative prints on either sides is a good way to mix things up.

3. Location
There are plenty of places to display cushions - sofas, chairs, beds, footstools, window seats and even on the floor. A few large cushions are suited on sofas and chairs, while on a bed you would have several smaller cushions.

4. Shapes
A selection of different shaped cushions can make a sofa less regimented and more inviting. Try teaming up different shapes together, rectangular, circle and square, for impact.

Curtains or Blinds?

It’s an interesting dilemma when you need to choose curtains or blinds.

If you have a room with numerous windows having a mixture of curtains and blinds can be the best solution rather than having all curtains or all blinds. Hang soft, warm, luxuriant curtains in large windows or French doors where they have room to breathe, then hang blinds in the smaller less accessible windows. It’s finding the right visual balance.

The other advantage of having two window treatments, is that you can use more than one pattern. For example, maybe stripes or spots on the blinds and a larger scale pattern for the curtains. Having both will create a more cosy feel to the room.

If you have radiators under windows try an interlined roman blind and curtains. You can drop the blind when the radiator is on and draw the curtains when the radiator is turned off. We can make all your curtains and blinds to your specifications, exactly as you’d like them.
