Cushion Couture: An Interior Design Guide to Cushions

Whether you’re jazzing up your living room or adding flair to your bedroom, here are a couple of tips to style your cushions like a pro interior designer. Let’s dive in!

1. Stick to a Color Scheme

Try to stick to a cohesive color scheme for your cushions. You can try complementary colors for a more calm and harmonious feel.


Or go bold with contrasting hues for a vibrant vibe. Just be sure to tie everything together with a unifying color or two.

2. Play with Texture

Texture is the secret ingredient that adds depth and dimension to your cushion arrangement. Mix and match textures like velvet, linen, faux fur, and knits to create visual and tactile interest.

3. Embrace patterns

Don’t be afraid to mix different patterns for a dynamic and visually appealing look. Play with stripes, florals, geometrics, and even animal prints. The key is to vary the scale of the patterns – pair large-scale prints with smaller ones for balance and interest.

4. Layer Like a Pro

Layering is the key to creating a luxurious couch situation. Start with larger cushions at the back, then layer smaller ones in front for depth and dimension.

5. Play with Proportions

Mix up the proportions of your cushions to create visual intrigue. Pair large, overstuffed cushions with smaller, more delicate ones for a balanced look.

6. Don’t Forget Functionality

While aesthetics are important, don’t forget about functionality. Make sure your cushions are comfortable to lean against and easy to move around. Choose high-quality inserts that provide proper support and fluffiness, ensuring your cushions look as good as they feel.
