5 Ways To Update Your Home With Cushions

I have a confession to make: I am addicted to buying cushions. Printed, plain… you name it! There is just an understated air of luxe that comes with adding that perfect cushion to your decor.

As someone who lives in a rental property, it can be hard to inject an air of myself into my home. After all, wallpapering, painting and even drilling holes in the walls are totally out of the question… unless I want a hefty bill. No thank you!

Luckily, printed cushions are a cheap, cheerful and non-permanent way of upping your home decor game. And the best part? When you move home, you can simply move them with you!

Ready to funk up your decor? Read on for five easy, yet effective ways to update your home with cushions.

The Random Bed Cluster

Your plain and boring sheets getting you down? Add a sprinkle off happiness into your bedroom with a random cluster of colorful cushions. Opt for four different patterns in vibrant prints for a little injection of bohemian warmth.

For a plain white bedding set, this combination will add some oomph:

Is your bed donning blue sheets? Warm it up by going for warm-hued cushions with blue accents, mixed with blue cushions with red or orange accents:

Turn your apartment into a resort! No matter how small your balcony is, it can accommodate for a couple of patterned cushions, some matching flora and a glass of wine. If it’s a substantial size, this crate seat is a cheap and chic way to give it a makeover!

The key for this sophisticated look is to opt for two matching cushions in a vibrant palette. Luckily, all of our cushions come in packs of two!

No matter what kind of chair you have in your home office or dorm room, give it a little lift with a few simple steps. Firstly, add a fluffy rug or fluff blanket to give it a shabby chic edge. Then top with one or two statement cushions. We recommend the floral embroidered pillow cover to fit with the shabby chic vibe.

Add some faux or real plants to inject further life into your work space.

Time to get creative with your cushions!
