Cushions can totally transform not just your sofa, but your whole room. If you’re thinking of updating your colour scheme to herald a new year and new season, cushions are a great place to start. The key is to use a mix of designs and fabrics to make it interesting.
Plain coloured linen or velvet cushions will really make your arrangement stand out, whereas embroidered designs will add depth and detail.
Here are eight cushion combinations on one sofa - a quick and easy way to shake up your scheme for spring.

Bells And Whistles
An assortment of embellished cushions will add fun and texture wherever they are placed. This red and blue set manages to balance strong shades, striking patterns and contrasting textures.

This assortment of corals, reds and a touch of blue creates a warm and cosy environment. The intensity that red cushions bring to a space is beautifully balanced by the addition of a dusty blue cushion or two. A great way to heat up a neutral scheme.
