How to mix and match cushions
It’s the small details that elevate a room’s comfort level. The colour and texture of your cushions and throws can make them your home’s best accessories.
Step one: Colour
This is an opportunity to reference artwork and any statement pieces you have in the room. Stay colour consistent and stick to a colour palette of family colours. Complimentary: colours that are opposite to each other on the colour wheel
Analogous: Colours that are next to each other
Same Hue: Different shades of one colour
Style tip: Patterns are considered large scale, medium scale or small scale. Follow the same colour guidelines when using patterned cushions.
Step 2: Texture
In winter, warm faux-furs, chunky knits and velvets create that all-important couch cosiness and bedroom bliss.
In summer, linens, cottons and quilted cushions freshen up the mood.
Mix things up, with rectangles, squares and even circular shapes.
Style Tip: In the bedroom, one simple metallic finished cushion, or a sequin detail shouldn’t be lost in a sea of similar textures, instead let one cushion be the star of the bed.
