Trendy Tips:

We present to you an amalgamation of trends in cushions and tips on how to use those trends in the best possible manner.

  1. Golden hues are rocking the decor scene. You can invest in some metallic colored cushion covers. The advantages of doing so are- firstly, they can add a sparkle to your room. Secondly, when matched with some dull shades like brown or beige, they will make an interesting combo. But remember, never overdo gold. Small pillows in gold will always be a better option if you want to go for more than one pillow. This kind of trend goes well will brightly lit rooms and tastefully colored walls too. Interesting textures in gold and other metallic shades or intricate embroidery is also a good idea.
  2. Colorful cushions are loved by all. It’s actually a necessity to have a variety of colors in your cushion collection. Especially if you somebody who loves colors, vibrant and popping colors like blue, pink, orange are your best choices. For people who want to stay trendy but do not enjoy too many colors should go for Mediterranean blue for the Greece like feel. They can also opt for the Pantone color of the year: Marsala color. This color is surely something different and with its rustic wine hue, it adds a different dimension to your room. Solid colors in cushion work well when you have a dull colored sofa or when your room setting is subtle.
  3. Printed situations are any day better than solid mono tone ones. For adding some artistic touch to your room, go in for wild prints, abstract prints, or floral prints. Prints are the biggest trend of the year 2015. Printed cushions will give a different feel to your room. The best part about prints is, you can opt for various prints and they look well in almost every kind of setting. For example, a classy plain jane white interior can surely do well with Big pillows in graphical prints. To add more fun, one can opt for comical prints too. Since its spring time, A floral Bloom will surely be the best way to create a refreshing environment. For the art lovers, abstract prints or ancient prints can add a lot of meaning to your home setting.
  4. Vintage theme: Our personal favorite is the Vintage theme. With so many new age things coming into the picture, people are now going back into the future. The turned sofa 60s, 70s are not old anymore. The old world charm works wonders in room decor too. So invest in some vintage inspired cushions and add some golden ear touch to your home.
