Cushions to catch everyone’s eye

The idea of updating the look of your home can feel quite overwhelming. Where to start? Well, one tip is to start by updating the cushion covers. Believe it or not, a few colorful and boldly printed pillows can completely change the mood and expression of an entire room. It’s also an affordable way of dabbling with a trend before going all in.

Dream in color

There are all kinds of rules when it comes to mixing and matching patterns and colors. For autumn, we say: ignore them all. Start with the bedroom and combine boldly printed duvet covers with solid pastel colored pillows. Enter the land of slumber in style.

Set the table with a splash of color

A perfectly matching table is a relative thing. Clashing colors and patterns on your dinner table is a great way to add an eclectic touch and mood. Use existing tableware as a base and add interesting hand-me-down pieces from granny and one-offs from the local flea market.
