Firstly, having plump, great quality cushions is the way to making sure your new additions have the desired effect in your living area, so if your cushions have seen better times, it’s time to update.

Mixing cushions in patterns, prints or plains can achieve some beautiful looks, all cushions need to complement each other, this is usually having a similar colour in each cushion, if one cushion is bold, then the others should be a little more subtle and not so busy. Keeping solid colour plains or a neutral colour in between the patterns can keep the look more formal, and less scattered.

When using patterned and printed cushions, there are a few looks you can go for, a little more formal or ‘matchy-matchy’ or keep the cushions complimenting each other, but use all a lot of different patterns and coordinating plains to create a totally unique look!
