Tips For Decorating With Cushions

Do you member the movie "Along came Polly"? In the movie Rueben made a funny point of how much time in our life we lose for each cushion we have to take on and off the bed each day. Well I'm sorry to say, but at the moment you had better allow some time in your day for cushions.......... because you cant have too many!

Having recently received the latest Rapee cushions Autumn/Winter catalogue, i realised the more the better. If your thinking four! The trend at the moment is soft and cosy.....which means more cushions on the couch. Its amazing how fantastic a bed or couch can look with a generous quantity and range of cushions. Be daring combining different textures, colours and patterns.

Cushions are like shoes and handbags for the home. They are the perfect accessory. Whilst a girl cant have too many shoes and handbags, a home cant have too many cushions. Changing your cushions every 3 or 6 months can completely transform the look and feel of your room for little expense.

My favourite co-ordinating cushion at the moment is Morocco Can Can. It has amazing texture, and is available in a wide range of colours. This cushion has a wonderful ability to transform an old couch, or liven up a bedroom. This cushion is in stock now at for $53.00.

Don't forget to complete the look of any combination of cushions, a throw rug carefully placed on the couch or folded at the foot of the bed, will tie all the textures and colours of the cushions together. Then all that's missing is 30 spare minutes, a cup of coffee, a good book and feet up on the ottoman!
