The cushions are widely underutilized / item underestimated in many homes.
Instead of being used as elements of beauty and decoration, its role seems to be a pure practice. To support your back and be embraced in times of stress! All very well, but I would suggest that it is possible to combine both aspects to create a beautiful home, what works for you.
So what you are buying this diatribe? I miss you very much to go to the shops in the street and confronted with muted colors and fabric cushions with no style or imagination. Usually they are bored, sad and often repeated in all areas; thus killing any chance to see something interesting and unusual that makes a statement about your home and what you are.
We cushions mentioned since the Middle Ages. Often called a pillow or ottoman and, today, we think of a pillow like something in a canopy bed and ottoman something to kneel on while praying in church. Its main use at the time was, of course, to soften a room very uncomfortable corner. They were bigger than now mostly firmer and covered with leather, more like a seat. In the past, they were stuffed with wool, hair and feathers – the latter is still used today, but now largely stable polyester fiber is the preferred filler.
First consider how you will use. Would it be in a room where the heavy and dark clothes could be thrown at them? So obviously would not use a pastel color or look very appropriate. Here, if the main color scheme was pale, so I suggest you use a pattern or a darker shade of the main color.
For the room, I would say a paler color, a delicate fabric, perhaps matching curtains and bedspreads, what might work for you? I love pillows on a bed or a chair that I think can really enhance a room that at times I often dress – the attitude is that no matter who is only for homeowners, this is not how he sees often in public. However, I would suggest that you keep this private area looking nice and clean, just for you!
In a kitchen, for example, the style should be happy and cheerful. The color and style (perhaps related to the kitchen) that makes you feel happy and a homily environment.
For the living room, it’s a case of making sure they fit well with the theme of the room. It is the formal style? Rural? Even casual? Think again how the part is used. What is the atmosphere you want to create? Think assistance. For example, children – [in the case of very young children, discuss safety issues with your choice of pillows] -‘ll have a lot of teenagers dressed in football, animals or intersection mainly adults? In the latter case, in a way that is easier than it means you can go for a more sophisticated look, maybe something lighter. Returning to round children concerns and / or animals, I would encourage stronger darker fabric and just to make sure that they use it. But instead of feeling disappointed that has to be practical, think how you can be resourceful to make them look different, something that shows you have gone to great lengths to choose from. There is always a trade-off.
