There’s no better way to give your room a quick refresh than an accessories update, and scatter cushions can change the look of any living area or bedroom in an instant! With so many different options to choose from, here are our top tips to create the perfect arrangement for your home.

Be Brave With Bright Coloured Cushions

It’s easy to replace scatter cushions whenever you fancy a refresh, so there’s no reason to shy away from bold seasonal colours and on-trend patterns. Use your cushions as an opportunity to unleash your style and go bold with colourful cushions! Experiment with different colour combinations or mix and match textures to find what works best with your décor.

Mix It Up With Different Styles of Cushions

Cushions come in lots of different shapes and sizes, and the key to creating a luxurious looking arrangement is choosing a mix of small and large scatters. Incorporating different shapes is a great way to revitalise a room, with hard or soft angles used to compliment your existing larger furniture. If you’ve opted for a lot of hard edges, like rectangular coffee tables or some modern sofas, then round scatter cushions are great for softening up the look and feel of a room, bringing a cosy element to your everyday living.

Bolster cushions are easy to layer up with larger sizes, so if you’re looking for more of a statement cushion then these are definitely the styles you want to be adding in. Choose bright and bold colours for accents in more neutral rooms or soften the colours with rich navy’s or blue’s to add a cooling effect to the overall scheme.

Introduce Texture

Cushions with different fabrics and textures create an extra cosy arrangement; think faux fur or velvet Cushions with different fabrics and textures create an extra cosy arrangement; think faux fur or velvet that’s soft to the touch. Similarly, cushions with frills, embroidery or textured elements can create a beautiful focal point in your home. Layer up intricate designs with plain coloured scatters featuring similar colours for a chic, curated arrangement.

Choose Contrasting Colours with the right cushion colour combinations

It can be tempting to choose cushions that tone in with your choice of sofa, but contrasting colours can make your interior design pop and help you to tie in your design with other areas of the room. Think about mixing bright orange with deep navy blues for a striking finish, or mint green tones with blush pink for a playful combination. 

Get Cosy

Your sofa styling doesn’t have to be limited to scatter cushions. Add even more volume and texture to your cosy corner with a plush throw that co-ordinates with your colour scheme. The same can work for the bedroom, too, by adding a bedspread at the foot of your bed. Extra style and extra comfort – win win!
