Living Room Cushion Dreaming

My apartment has been in an absolute SHAMBLES lately!

But finally, things are feeling like normal and I’ve got my lovely open and airy apartment back.

To celebrate and to help prolong the fresh and clean feeling I’ve got happening over here, I want to buy some new scatter cushions for my sofa. I’m going to take you through my decision process and how I’ll be choosing my colour & designs.


STEP 1 | What’s your base layer?

Your base layer is essentially your space without scatter cushions. What colour/materiality is your sofa, armchair, rug, flooring etc? My space is as follows: tan leather sofa, grey linen armchair, white textured rug & navy blue velvet ottoman.

STEP 2 | Are you looking to connect existing colours or to introduce a new colour?

In my space, I have a lot of different colour elements that come together in a little bit of an eclectic way so my main aim with my scatter cushions is to connect all or some of the cushions in my space. In addition to my base layer, I have a selection of accessory items in shades of pink and green.

STEP 3 | Are you prepared to have custom scatter cushions made or are you looking for ready made cushions?

Dropping into your local interiors/ furniture shop would be the best place to start when looking for custom scatter cushions. If you’re searching for ready-made cushions (like me) the internet is your BFF right now. A huge range of furniture & homewares stores have great cushions, one retailer who has really upped their homewares game recently is Target so they’re definitely a good place to check out.


I opted for Adairs as they had linen scatter cushions in just the PERFECT shade of green (you can still find them here – they’re on sale too!) to compliment the tan leather of my sofa and the green leather of my dining chairs.

Remember, if you need help choosing scatter cushions for your home, I’m here to help!

Until next time! xx
