How to upscale your home with panache.

Scatter cushions are an easy way to add panache and personality to your home and give it that designer look.  A good selection of cushions can bring all the elements of a room together and create that brand new look you’re searching for – and it needn’t cost a fortune.

Here are some tips to getting that designer look.

  • Either choose a palette or a design style for your room.  Make sure your cushions incorporate a colour that is already in the room or if the room is a blank canvas choose a colour or design that you really love.
  • Choose cushions of different sizes to create a layered look.
  • Don’t be afraid to mix patterns or styles as long as there is a pattern or design that incorporates your chosen colours.  Don’t be afraid of clashing patterns and colours.  Remember there are no rules.
  • Mix large scale designs with small scale prints.
  • Look for texture and trims to elevate your selections.
  • Have a nice selection of plain cushions to compliment your patterns.
  • Choose good feather inners.
  • Never place a scatter cushion on its corner – always flat with a gentle chop to give it body.

It’s easier than you think to unleash the designer in you.  Happy decorating.
