Here an odd number of cushions have been used to create an unsymmetrical look and each cushion is a different pattern and colour. So, you’d think the cushions would fight each other, but the reason they don’t is because their colours are used in the patterned cushion. One cushion is plain, one has a small pattern repeat and the other a large repeat but because they come from the same colour palette, they tone together perfectly.
This is one of the most popular and ‘safest’ looks and is one that you’ve probably come across in many small hotels or B and B’s. In this scheme both back cushions match and the two front are a similar design. A mirror image is created down the middle of the bed, which is very pleasing to the eye and if you’re someone who likes a clean, tidy look in your home then this look is perfect for you!
Mix It Up
In this look we’ve placed four cushions across the back and two at the front. There are four different cushion designs in this look, but they don’t clash as although the patterns and fabrics aren't the same, they all use the same colour palette which here, is taken from our Saltwater cushion.
This look is slightly more relaxed, the cushions are made to look like they’ve been placed on the bed in no particular order. There’s no real symmetry but because both of the outer cushions are the same fabric it creates a cohesion to the look!
Luxury ‘Hotel’ Style
This look uses the most amount of cushions which is why it’s a more luxurious arrangement. But, if you’re reading this, then you probably love cushions! If you find yourself returning from most shopping trips with a cushion or five then this look is perfect for you.
Creating A Focal Point
If there’s one cushion you own that you particularly love and want to be the main focal point of the room, then this arrangement is great. Placing three cushions across the back of the bed gives the scheme some depth, here we’ve used two matching ticking stripes on the end and a contrasting plan velvet in the middle. The star of this scheme is the Shellseeker cushion and placing it in front of the plain orange velvet makes it stand out against the bed linen and catches your eye immediately!
