The ABCs of choosing cushions


No lounge filled with couches would be complete without the perfect set of pillows. Choosing the best pillows may seem like a daunting task, especially if you are not the most design-oriented or feel as if you lack creative vision. Do not fret, however, as we have compiled a few tips that will have you choosing cushions for your new couches like a pro:


Co-ordinate cushions with your existing décor


Should you opt for couches that are neutral in colour and design, you have the liberty to choose interesting pillows that correspond with your overall decoration in your lounge space. For example, if your lounge features walls painted with gorgeous blues, pick out some lovely blue scatter pillows to match.


Do not be afraid to go bold


In the same sense, should your couches not have patterns, do not be afraid to choose pillows with bright colours and patterns. Floral is always a popular choice and never fails to add a wonderful aesthetic to a space.


Use all sorts of shapes and sizes


There is absolutely no need to use pillows that are all uniform in size. In fact, many designers argue that doing so can be a grave mistake. Varying cushion sizes is one way to ensure that your space is not only interesting, but also homey.
