How to make a statement with soft furnishings

Changing the look of a room doesn't have to be a huge project.

Updating your soft furnishings is such a simple and cost-effective way to change the whole look of your living space.

By soft furnishings, I’m talking about bed linen, rugs and cushions. When chosen thoughtfully, they can create instant impact.

Cushions are a great way to add a ‘pop’ of colour or inject your personality. And they’re easy to change during different seasons, or when new trends come in.

Your cushions don't all need to match. As long as you use colours that complement each other, there's a connection.

You can use different sizes, shapes, textures and fabrics to create real depth and interest.

Cushions and throw rugs can also be a great way to tie into wall art or other features in the house, which gives a real cohesive feel.

Bed linen also adds to your atmosphere. Beautiful fabric can add texture all by itself. And if you tie in your cushions with your bedding, it’s a lovely way to bring a whole colour scheme together.

Colour can make a big impact on your mood, so use your soft furnishings to create a peaceful environment, or enhance the energy in your room.
