There are virtually no limits to the variety of colours fabrics, shapes and sizes that can be used to create cushions. So don't be afraid to mix and match different coloured cushions or pick a single colour and vary the cushions design.

Colours are an individual taste and make a statement so many people avoid the bold and opt for the bland. They don’t need to (if you want more on this subject go to Colours break down into warm such as red, yellow and orange, or cool such as blue, grey and green. Warm colours are inviting and stimulating while cool colours tend to be more soothing and quieting.

Red - Red cushions are striking, needless to say I have them and they go beautifully with my lovely Chinese red cabinets. Use a single one or a collection of red cushions to add colour and spice up your room. Red cushions will certainly add a touch of bold and wow factor to your home.

Yellow -Add a fresh stylish look to your room. Vibrant, saturated colours distinguish this cushion as a bold, spirited choice for your rooms.

Orange -Choosing bold, vibrant orange cushions will add a statement to your room. You can add a single orange cushion with whites or add to other bold coloured cushions. What a venturesome choice for your room.
