April 06 2023 – Jayne Graham

When it comes to decorating your home, cushions and throws can be a great way to add a touch of style and comfort. But with so many different types of cushions and throws available, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for your space. This guide will help you make the best choice when selecting cushions and throws for your home. Especially now that the weather is changing to the cooler months having an extra layer on the bed or sofa to keep the toes warm, makes a big difference to comfort and coziness during winter!

1. Firstly you need to consider your style.

The first step in choosing cushions and throws is to consider your own personal style. Do you prefer a coastal look or a more vintage inspired one? Do you like bright colors or neutral tones? Once you have an idea of the type of look you’re going for, it will be easier to narrow down your choices.

2. Think about functionality

When selecting cushions and throws, it’s important to think about how they will be used in your home. Are they purely decorative or do you want them to provide extra comfort? If you’re looking for something that is both stylish and functional, choose cushions with removable covers so that they can easily be washed when needed. If when looking at throws do you want extra weight like linen to keep you warm or a lighter material like cotton to just add colour and texture to the rooms.

3. Choose the Right Fabrics

The type of fabric you choose can make a big difference in how comfortable your cushions and throws are. Natural fabrics like cotton, linen, wool, and silk are all great choices as they are soft, breathable, and durable. Synthetic fabrics like polyester or acrylic may be cheaper but they won’t last as long or feel as comfortable against the skin.

4. Mix & Match Colours & Patterns

Solid colors are great for creating a calming atmosphere but if you want something more eye-catching try mixing different patterns together. You could go for two different prints in complementary colors or opt for one patterned cushion with several plain ones in coordinating shades. This will add texture and interest to any room without being too overwhelming.
