As the nights draw in and the first signs of frost creep into our gardens, it’s not unusual for us to pine for the distant memories of summer. Many of us can get a little down at the thought of winter and would rather hibernate until Spring. Do not fear! There is a very easy and refreshing way to lift your spirits.
Decorating our homes can often bring joy with the transformation to a fresh new look. But with Christmas fast approaching and wallets fast emptying, a full-blown changing rooms is not always convenient. What you could do is simply change your cushion covers! You’d be surprised the difference a new colour and design can make to a room, and to your winter blues!
If your main décor is neutral, you have a blank canvas to work with and can choose any colour or design that takes your mood. You can even choose a few to swap and change to your heart’s desire. See how these different scatter cushions from Plumbs make a huge difference to the look and feel of this suite for example.
If you have a more defined look to your room you are still able to make a difference with a change of cushion covers. See if you can bring in an extra accent colour or use neutral plains to break up solid blocks of colour.
Don’t just limit your cushion cover make-over to your sofas and suites. A nice mixture of cushions can look great on a window seat and add a softness to your windows. Or you could use lots of cushions with various textures and shades to create a luxury, hotel feel to your bedroom.
Whichever way you refresh your cushion covers, have fun with it! Mix and match styles and colours. See how different you can make your room look and feel with minimal effort. Before you know it, Spring will be round the corner and your winter blues will have been replaced with beautiful accessories you can use all year round.
