Styling with Cushions - Where to start & What to consider..

Top Tips for Selecting & Styling the Perfect Cushion Arrangement

We often receive the following question:

"How do I choose a set of cushions that not only complement each other but also the space they will occupy?" If you're struggling to find a starting point or feeling overwhelmed, you're not alone.


Neutral cushions can make a statement in any room, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

We've gathered our top 5 tips to help you select and style the perfect setup for your space without needing to incorporate bright colour. But if you are looking for a feature accent, these tips will still apply and provide a stunning base layer to build upon.

1- Think about the mood you want to create. If you're looking for a relaxing and calm atmosphere, choose muted, earthy tones. If you want a more vibrant space, opt for brighter shades of neutral colours with crisp whites. 
2- Consider the texture of each cushion. Mixing different textures can add depth and interest to your arrangement. Mix and match smooth, rough, woollen and weaved fabrics to create an inviting look  

3- Pay attention to size and shape. Varying the size and shape of the cushions creates a sense of comfort & a visually appealing look. A combination of square, rectangular, and round cushions can add dimension and interest to your decor.  

4- Mix patterns carefully. If you're going to mix patterns, choose those that complement each other. For example, try pairing a striped cushion with another pattern or a solid cover but in complementary colours.
5- Don't forget about the filling. The type of filling you choose can affect the look and feel of your cushions. Feather or down fillings create a soft, luxurious and comfortable feel, while foam fillings can provide firmer support & a more structured look. Investing in a good insert will also reduce future spending as you will be able to change up the covers only and reduce unwanted bulk.

By following these tips, you can create a neutral cushion arrangement that's both stylish and functional.
