Cushions are a stylists best friend - I love using them to add colour, texture and interest to a space, but all too often, I see them not being used correctly or people just lacking confidence to pull them together. In fact it's probably one of the most asked questions I get - how do I pull them together and where do I buy them from. Well, today I am going to reveal some of the things I like to do with cushions!

1. no matter what colour couch you have always include a black and white zig zag (or Chevron) cushion - it helps define the space and ground it!
2. Add interest with colour and shape - mix the shapes up, round, large square, rectangular
3. Mix prints and strips
Add texture - velvet, shag - what ever tickles your fancy
4. never match - always mix
5. Layer them in odd numbers - 3, 5 or 7!!!
6. don't try to hard - just throw them on - there really is no formula

7. Add some quirk - words or animal prints - have some fun
8. I love feather inserts - they really make all the difference
9. kids ranges can equally look good in an adult setting!
always add black and white to the mix - this cushion is so affordable - from IKEA
Rachel Castle Round Cushions - add some fun and Colour to a space

9. keep the colour pallet simple - no more than 3 shades of colour
10. add some metallic to spice things up.
