Making the Most From Your Soft Furnishings

When you decorate a room, soft furnishings act as the perfect finishing touches. They can tie a colour scheme together, and also act as an opportunity for you to experiment with different textures. You need to focus on the soft element of your furnishings – they should be cosy and inviting; pulling a room together and welcoming you, and your loved ones, into your home.

So how can you make the most from them?

Making the Most From Your Soft Furnishings

Cushions

Let’s start in the living room, which is the room most people will see. Cushions are a simple way to colour co-ordinate a room. Whatever paint palettes you’ve chosen for the room, you definitely don’t want everything to be the same colour., even if it’s your favourite, it will be far too much. There are plenty of colours and designs for you to explore. If you fancy a bold print, don’t be afraid to embrace that. This year has seen the rise of cosy and homely as opposed to minimalist. You could have a variety of soft textures, too, to make the living room look more inviting.

Blinds

Don’t let your blinds just serve as a practical purpose for blocking out the light from a room. By choosing a bold print or colour, they can act as a stylish feature and really tie a space together. Direct Blinds have a wide range of colours and styles for you to choose from, so you can find the fit that’s right for you and your design. 

Towels

Similar to the blinds, towels could be considered as just another practical element to a home and not much thought given to them. However they play an important role in bringing some colour to a bathroom. You could either match them in a different shade to the walls, or go for contrasting colours to give the bathroom a stylish edge.

Duvets

The duvet is easily one of the most eye-catching elements in the bedroom. It can bring a room together and emphasise the look you’re going for. For a child’s room, you can go for fun, block, colours or cartoon prints. For your own room, you want something that reflects your ideals. This is your private haven away from the world. If you want a calming neutral bedspread, go for that. If you want to have fun with colour and patterns, choose that option. You do whatever you want as your bedroom is just for you.
