Cushie Number – Cushions That Add a Finishing Touch to Your Living Space

5th October 2016

When it comes to cushions in my home, more is definitely more! One can never have enough cushions, they add a chic touch to a home in an instance. My husband cannot understand the amount of cushions I seem to accumulate at rapid speed. One decorating tip I highly recommend when sprucing up your living space is to go neutral with the paint colour scheme and add the colour and finishing touches with the furnishings and their texture, namely cushions, textiles and accessories.

The Perfect Cushion

On my hunt for the perfect cushion to finishing off my living room, I came across Apponyi Home, a design and build brand for the home founded by Alice Apponyi. Not only do they design and fit interiors, they also sell some of the exquisite furnishings to go with their schemes. What caught my eye was the range of leather cushions namely the Soho Red Leather Cushion. It is made from beautifully soft red leather which contrasts well with the grey-blue and  black of the cushion design. It is also backed with a 100% natural linen which complements the leather side perfectly well. This is a good way to add colour into the home without being too overpowering. The cushions are also available in a number of other hues which have definitely caught my eye.

Hit the Tropics

Well I think I can safely say that one of the hottest trends of 2015 across home, fashion and childrenswear has to be T.R.O.P.I.C.A.L. Palm prints, leafy motifs, pineapples and flamingos have all made an appearance (see previous post for Little Ones here) and especially across interiors products in one form or another adding a touch of the tropics to our homes. Team the vibrant green palm print hues with natural materials and textures such as driftwood and rattan for a sophisticated look. A peacock chair (view previous post on peacock chairs) completes the tropical trend and gives a retro aesthetic to the home.There are numerous mainstream retailers offering palm prints across a range of accessories and House of Hackney has one of the most comprehensive collections but who can resist the graphic print Cole and Son Palm Jungle wallpapers or the tropical leaf cushions at Not on the High St? I don’t think I am brave enough to go for these wallpapers on all four walls but the key to this look is to add small accessories and a hint of leafy print.
