Design Inspiration | Cushion Trends
Updating a rooms décor doesn’t always mean a lick of paint or even wallpapering, if you are happy with your walls you can easily add colour and texture with textiles.
The majority of us strive to be trend led and to have the latest colours and patterns with our walls and decor yet when it comes to the crunch we stay safe and stick with neutral colour tones and subtle patterns. For those who are reading this and thinking that’s me, then why not dip your toe into trendy home fashion with textiles. Think throws, cushions and rugs, these are a great way to add that colour you weren’t quite daring enough to live with on your walls to your room.
This years trends in textiles are easy to integrate into your home decor, here is a run down.
Photo print cushions can achieve huge impact with just a single cushion, make a statement by using plain colours and perhaps plain textured cushions with your digitally printed cushion taking centre stage on your sofa.
Shabby chic is as popular as ever, those romantically feminine soft toned vintage prints can create a serenity and calming effect to all who live in the house, great for a bedroom or relaxing area.
Closely linked to the chic themes are the Crafter’s, textures and soft prints combine to create that “home made” feeling, evoking thoughts of summer fares, bunting and life in the country…..everything Kirsty Allsopp really.
Luxury boudoir, who doesn’t dream of having a walk in dressing room with lots of hanging space and masses of display space for shoes and jewellery plus a chaise longue with embellished cushions. Well for most of us that is just a dream so having cushions with added pearls or diamanté at our dressing table chair or on the bed is as close as we’ll get…if you are lucky enough to have a dressing room these may just be the finishing touch.
Heavy textured fabrics can be used in block colours to add great interest to your sofa or window seat they can be used to replace or add to your collection of plain coloured scatter cushions. Known as “Shaggy” cushions are they tend to feature various strands of mixed textiles with fine metallic threads, be cautious of lesser quality cushions – the difference can be dramatic!
Ombre, the gradient from one colour to another, has been popular in fashion and hair for a season or two now. We can now intergrate this into our homes in rugs, cushions and throws, this look has a luxury hotel chic to it – achieve a high end finish with this style!
