How to Use Handmade Cushions to Freshen Up Your Home and Keep Within Your Decorating Budget

Quality handmade cushions are available from numerous reputable online outlets and come in a wide range of fabrics and colors. You can either pick a color which you already have in the room, for example, the lamp shade or a colour from the blinds or curtains. Alternatively, you can choose a completely new colour to add an exciting new dimension to the room. For example, if your room is made up of browns and fawn shades why not add a few sky blue cushions? You could choose a few multi-coloured scatter cushions. Then add a throw which picks out a colour from the scatter cushion. There are so many different ways to add a few new cushions into a room.

Handmade cushions come in a wide range of styles, colours and shapes: No matter what style of furniture you have, you will find handmade cushions which will fit into your existing decor style. Some of the more popular home decor styles are:

Bright brocade and silk fabric adorned with tassels or ribbons will add a luxurious look to an otherwise plain lounge area. Rich burgundy red satin scatter cushions decorated with black lace will liven up a plain ivory duvet. Make sure you buy cushions with easily removable cushion covers. Cushions with zips, buttons, ties or fold over slip covers will be easy to take off and wash when they get dirty.
