Cushions probably are one of the most important homes
accessories you can own. They not only provide pops of colour,
texture and luxury but also with a low price tag, they can be
easily traded out with changes in trends and seasons.
Having the right cushions in your living room can make all the
difference in the room altogether. They are the easiest way to
bring the change; without having to redecorate the whole place
with an added advantage of being easily removable if you end up
making a blunder.
With the right pillows, you can bring life even to a dull room.
However, it is extremely important that you know how to choose
the right sizes and shapes, the right number of pillows, the right
textures and the right colour.

Don’t Overplay It
Fill your space with enough pillows to add colour and allure, but
